I just looked at the plans again and it looks like I was mistaken. The plans show the area around the parkade entrance being a much lighter color of brick than the rest of the podium. So it looks like it still may look like the renderings. 

You can see the color difference on pages 19 and 25 here:

Okay, nice, the lighter stuff was always supposed to come down the side there. And what do you know? The colour of it seems to be really accurate!

 

So I guess this means we can go back to griping about the grey panels on the non-brick portions of the tower.

 

Edit: doesn't page 19 of the doc show painted concrete where this brick cladding is going?

So much grey panel cladding on the "back" sides of the tower... Harris Green is suddenly becoming a showcase for the stuff.

It's like payback for all of those past complaints re: excessive brick coverage on modern buildings.

10 completed and four to go? Funny how short a 14 storey now appears next to 20 storeys. It seemed only yesterday that 14 storeys was really pushing the extreme limits of human engineering in Victoria.

Thanks for the pics dkuitu.

Does anyone know what's going on at 844 Johnson? Are they removing that driveway?

Also who is paying for these changes to 844?
