The Panel also remarked that it is “exciting” to see such an architectural style proposed for the downtown core....

 

I don't want to be a jerk but I'll make the point that sweeping curves are conspicuous downtown for their absence. How come nobody ever gets excited for something like that? Vic West, the Selkirk, even View Royal... but not downtown. I guess I'm wondering about the fine line between exciting/acceptable and exciting/unacceptable.

I suppose I'm not quite correct when I say that. Aria has a sweeping curve, although it's on the side facing away from downtown.

Twin 21 floors ... awesome. 

 

Please not another 15 floored building.

 

Regarding "Yello" ... I love it. Twin buildings would have been less of a wide-stumber however.

I don't dislike "Yello", I just don't want to see it replicated almost exactly across the street. Something much "glassier" would be a welcome addition to this block.

There were curved corners on Victorian buildings back in the 19th century. I'm thinking of modern sweeping curved facades.

The "Gherkin" is one of those "love or hate" buildings. I don't think there is much indifference on this one. Personally, I like it.

but there's no street wall, or really any relation to the other buildings. maybe that's not such a bad thing there because it was already so cramped. if that were built in victoria wouldn't there just be even more open spaces?

/\....I would love to see Victoria build our own version of the Gherkin on Johnson street. We could then call it.....you know.....the Johnson.

In honour of Coun. Madoff it could be called the Half-sour.

Let's hope that Chard can get this project approved and under construction quickly.  The rental market will certainly welcome the additional units on Johnson Street (same for Yellow on Yates).. and the condo market is very hot these days with multiple offers on condos in the core a common scenario.

Details have now been updated in the Citified piece: http://victoria.citi...es-and-johnson/

 

The height of the towers will be 20-storeys, and the Yates Street tower will include 112-units of one, two and three-bedroom condos. The residential type for the second tower is yet to be confirmed, but 114-units are envisioned.

I really don't dig twinned heights. I don't dig it as somebody looking at the buildings from afar and I don't dig it as somebody looking at one building from the other. I'm surprised that it's even allowed, in a city that's supposedly so concerned about microscopic analysis of every aspect of a project. Even a variation of a couple of stories can make a big difference. On the plus side, it looks like the buildings themselves will not be twins.*

 

*and I see now that they want to use "light & dark" to distinguish them.

...there are 3 developments proposals that will shadow these buildings if they go forward as proposed...

 

There are three pending projects that will shadow this lot? Which three projects would those be?

That's the thing, those three projects are a mystery.
