It's been a while since we've indulged the great spandrel debate, so allow me to fan the flames again. Part of me is happy that they've chosen a different colour than the standard seafoam green, but part of me is unhappy because the dull blue colour that they chose reminds me a lot of the modernist cladding on the old BC Tel building that used to occupy the corner of Blanshard and Johnson (now part of the footprint of 800 Yates). Does anybody have a pic of the building that I'm talking about?
I like the look of the grey spandrel. Still not a fan of spandrel but at least on HP1 it ties in nicely with the glass

Anyway, just a bit of a quibble. Quibbles 'n bits.

It's almost as if the more Victoria changes, the more it stays the same.

I seem to recall that when the land assembly took place for the whole Hudson development, in its earlier incarnation, those corner properties wouldn't sell. They ended up planning all the development not to include the land. I wonder whether that was actually a good or a bad move for those owners.

I don't remember the Douglas/Caledonia properties ever being considered as part of the Hudson development. I am sure someone will correct me, but I don't think they were ever part of the Radius and whatever other name the Hudson Walk site was previously known.

...If I recall correctly there was a proposal for a one story restaurant there by the actual property owner.
That would be a terrible use for that location. I am glad it never happened.

You're right. They never were part of the Radius plans. However, I remember the developer saying on TV that they had tried to pick up the Red Hot Video and those other one story old buildings but the owners weren't interested.
