I see them all but the first photo. I saw it on this computer last night. It now has a box with a red X in it.

HUH? Weird.

Talking about that round mechanical room at the top of Corazon, I wonder if we will ever get a rotating restaurant here.

There isn't room in this town for 2 revolving restaurants, Vista 18 has that market captured.

Damn, I wish someone would take out that owl that got stuck in the gear that turns that thing. It's been stuck in the same position since I was a kid!!!

:cry:

I truly, truly am so excited about this project.

It is going to completely change Blanshard St. for the better.

here is another photo for you.

Looks like the architect's website has shuffled the pics. The links in the City Compilation thread at SSP were also broken.

Here is the rendering for everyone, incase you can't see it.

ok, I've updated the pic with your photobucket one Scaper.

It's awesome to have another great building under construction, and Farmer Construction I believe is the contractor so it should all go quite smoothly.

I went by the show suite last night with Dylan Leblanc and we counted 17 suites sold out of about ~97. That's not bad considering Chard's first phase is trying to attract first-time buyers.

They drove down a bunch of piles along side the parkade and there is a larger hole now. They are also setting up a protected pedestrian walkway along Blanshard St.

The pedestrian walkway has a giant roof on top, is this for a site office?

Yeah I think so this is a small site so anything they don't need on the ground I think they will try to put above on the walkway.

So somebody says to me, they sez "That new building on Johnson Street looks like it will be very nice."

Apparently there was a picture of it (the Juliet) in the paper? An ad, I presume?

Anyway, I thought it was funny. That Juliet rendering is very nice indeed, and if every new building were to get a similar treatment you just know the opposition to these sorts of projects would dry up almost to zero.

 

edit looking back in 2018: times have changed and we wonder how a decent junior highrise project like the Juliet ever could have been controversial.

The ad is all over the place. Bus Shelters, on buses themselves and on tv

They're certainly getting a lot of mileage out of that rendering of the corner looking down from above. Too bad no human will ever see it from that perspective. How does it look from the north or the west?
