There’s lots of residential towers of this architectural style I see in Burnaby and one in New West. Honestly as long as correct materials are used it can look pretty sharp.

The problem here is, you’re ideally trying to build a district with continuous architectural features on the South side of the arena. Glass or pass, man.

Oh I agree, the design can work.... in a location far, faaaaar away from the Ice District. After the product we have gotten so far, this would just destroy the entire ebb and flow of the whole area.

^^^^ not necessarily -- the interiors of many of the units are not well laid out in the Stantec tower. Apparently Stantec designed the tower with a mind to "forget the layout, the view is to die for".

I recall most units being quite well laid out but very compact and with 'European-sized' spaces, fridge, furniture etc. They were far better than many of the units in Legends (even though I prefer those).

Yeah but this being in a city where people value space. The layouts are are dealbreaker. You don’t pay close to a million dollars for claustrophobia unless you’re in a city that forces you to.

That's my point. Generally speaking Edmontonians can afford and desire sqft. They were very efficient but certainly came off as 'small' for many I toured with.

Nothing like forgetting about layout to spend more $/sqft. than makes sense for Edmonton for a north downtown view of the gravel parking lots and homeless shelters.

To be fair that is literally the worst view for a corner unit. The west facing views would be rather incredible.

... but it looks better from a distance. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Isn't this how most people who live in the suburban areas and commute downtown approach it?
