1) Zero chance this happens

2) Makes 20/22 look uninspiring in comparison

This looks amazing but with the height restrictions, why bother proposing 38 fl?

When you're as cuddled up with folks at City Hall as Vranich is, why not right? If anyone can get that height, he can. All the best to him!

The city could.... Ya know, use his height push as a benefit. But our city is bad at doing business. Push for public parking, virtua car, cycle parking, and affordable housing units.

But no, let's just deny it, and get nothing out of it.

If there's ever a site that that could handle a 35+ hi rise, it is here. Here's no single residential houses in the area, right next to the future B-Line LRT and all mostly retail/commercial buildings.

So how much is the wager this is denied outright? I'd put $100 on it being denied.

Why not be a little optimistic instead of assuming it'll be shot down?

Didn't ol' Darko say he'd build as tall on that corner as the city will let him? Maybe he's just trying to find out.

I don't care for the glass colour (I'd prefer it match 20/22 George) but the overall shape is promising and I like that the balconies are inset or nearly flush with the corner. And the pointy roof is welcome too.

I wonder if the tower will be mixed use, given the lack of balconies for the lower half?

Wonder what the zoning already allows on the site - guess no such luck it has Stoney Creek Frances Street type! Sur hope Mac gets in gear on the residential tower just east and adjacent.

I agree with you on the glass colour... looks very similar to the Emerald Park Condos in North York which to my eye didn't turn out great due to colour. Certainly unique though..

I like the overall design though.

Downtown Prime Retail Zone D2 - so the first floor is required to be used as retail. I don't know much about it beyond that.

That building would be all killer and not just filler!

Every Vrancor proposal I've seen always throughout the years has green glass initially, but ultimately it changes.

fantastic design....would be awesome to get something other than a flat roof skyline.
2 years ago this would have no problem passing city hall...in fact, it would have been praised.
Sadly, the NIMBYs are in control now....

This is a good point. I get that building a skyscraper right beside some single family homes is problematic, but here there's no reason to not go tall.
