The building's already visible from the waterfront near The Railyards in Vic West!

When I first joined VV in 2008 or whenever that was, a 25 floor building downtown (and a relatively sleek and modern one to boot!) was literally nothing but a dream! To see that coming to fruition is amazing.

Have any of the new developments or city planers placed any emphasis on the inclusion of EV charging stations in new developments??

Something to consider for people getting on in years before purchasing a suite on upper levels of a very tall building.  This will be Victoria's first such building.

There are some alarming stats that somehow don't get communicated.

As seniors the risk of heart attack increases with age as we all know.  What most people aren't aware is that your survival from a heart attack is directly linked to how high up you live in a building.

Those who lived on the ground or second floor fared best for survivability in recent studies. Data shows 4.2% survived to hospital discharge. Survival dipped to 2.6% on or above the third floor. Above the 16th floor survival was negligible!  The statistics are most grim for those at or above the 25th floor.

 

So when you choose your suite,  take time to think about your own health and do some research.  Most experts are calling for the installation of AED's ( Automatic External Defibrillators)  for these tall towers.  In Toronto there are many building which are not too old that have elevators not capable of fitting an EMS stretchers.  The standards didn't capture this fact for elevator sizing for all builds. This means the EMS must use a mobile chair which is not best for a patient having a cardiac arrest.

 

Be wise a do your own research or as an EMS employee yourself.  The information is out there.

Phew! I guess we now know the shortage of tall towers in the region is just Big Brother looking out for our best interests.

We've talked about this before.

Exactly right. Victorians have made highrise living much safer by keeping their city's highrise buildings as short as possible.

Only 4.2% of people who have a heart attack survive? So the many people I know who have survived heart attacks are actually insanely fortunate?

Where's this data you speak of? I call BS.

There is a fairly big difference between a heart attack and cardiac arrest.
Take a minute and use Google. https://www.theglobe...rticle28238769/

You're right, it's not heart attacks, but cardiac arrests (which can be caused by heart attack). The stats listed are for people with no pulse when the paramedics arrive. 4.2% come back from the 'dead' if the medics don't have to spead a lot of time waiting on elevators.

But on the flip side, living in the city centre means access to ambulances is theoretically better than if you were living in a suburb, so medics might actually arrive on the 25th floor faster than they would at a stately waterfront residence.

An ex-medic acquaintance was telling me that now with the volume of drug-related calls medics can’t even get to heart attack or non-drug-related calls as fast they once could, so whether you live on the second or 25th floor your ambulance wait is likely to be longer.

Are we we really talking about the difference between 4.2% and 0.1%? Plus with the health benefits of downtown living, your likely going to live longer on the 25th floor than you will in a house in Langford.

Downtown improved as well, so it was win-win.*

It looks like the study confirms what we already know, and that’s as we get older and earn more money, we tend to move into suburban homes, eat better food more often (no longer a starving student) and exercise less because our lives are pre-occupied with more than our physical appearance :)

And I tell ya, maintaining my yard has been a near-constant pursuit of stupidly physical work that downtown living never required. I’m currently building a retaining wall that spans about 80 feet and with every passing moment of lifting bags of concrete or dragging planks around I ask myself what in the world I’m doing, lol.

I think the main lesson here is that luxurious condo towers can never have too many speedy elevators.

You know that in the future someone else is going to look upon your hard work and say, "Ugh, now I have to dig out this crap to build what I want."  And the Circle Of Renovation continues.
