I think I'd prefer a different colour brick or some other material altogether:

Needs more aqua-coloured spandrel glass.

Half of it will be revealed to be aqua-coloured spandrel glass once construction starts. The artist disclaimed does say "subject to change."

Nothing better then choosing a colour that won't stand the test if time.
Predictive text and a tiny keyboard are not my friends!

I don't mind that design. They've refined it somewhat from the earlier image. There's some asymmetry now and the lower levels are distinguished from the tower levels. I'd prefer the building itself to be a bit slimmer on the wide side (not going to happen, I know).

And shake up the colour palette a bit from the same familiar Bayview formula.

It really could use more tapering in the upper 6 floors or so.

I think I like it but I wish they'd ditch the brick entirely at this point. I am concerned that th sides are too wide, but it's impossible to tell. The angle from above on the Bayview website looks good.

One thing's for sure, this is going to be a big building. It'll certainly be one of the biggest buildings in the CRD both in terms of height and square footage.

I am definitely excited things are picking up steam at the Roundhouse / Bayview though.

Bayview at least capitalized on two towers, but I really, really wish the commercial component had moved forward when it was originally planned to do so. That was what, three years ago now? Four maybe?

 

At least 3 or 4 years... I guess there's little incentive to proceed with the necessary land remediation..

Stopped by the Bayview Place sales center today and I can't figure out why they are trying to attract buyers to come in. They have nothing concrete except the ugly exterior with Green spandrel galore, no floor to ceiling windows and orange brick. They said the plans are still waiting for approval from the city and they expect sales to begin end of October. I remember going to their big open house a year ago and still they are no further along.

So there should be nothing to worry about, right? This is the same city that over-scrutinizes every trivial aspect of even the most irrelevant projects, lest we forget. Victorians can be confident that they'll be on the job re: the spandrel issue.

I would be very happy with that going up in that spot immediately. Two thumbs up from me.

The rendering actually looks pretty good.

Spandrel in small amounts isn't that bad, it's the sections on Encore that have two or more panels of spandrel side-by-side that look awful.

I agree, it's the sections that look bad. Two panels together, or in some spots even three together. The funny thing is, even a narrow window or a trim piece etc. dividing them can make a big difference.

Not sure if it is the colours in the rendering but this looks badass, I like it. If we get going now it might be finished by 2023.

Yes- there is commercial space on the first floor.

There will be five levels of underground parking constructed: approximately 316 parking stalls. There will be 181 residential units and approximately 270 bike parking stalls too.
