After seeing it as a concrete structure for so long, it genuinely feels kind of weird to see the exterior finally coming together.  :lol:

I realize that's the "back" side but methinks those cream-coloured sections would have benefited from either a vertical line or a scattering of panels in some other finish/texture.

 

FYI: in my casual conversation I'm now referring to this building as a wedge-idential development. It's very cute and amusing the first time I say it, but it gets progressively more grating from there. No one can say they weren't warned.

I wonder what the lowest north unit will look like compared to the highest one?

I think the vertical row of relatively narrow windows more-or-less serves this purpose. As you say, this is the back of the building and the soon-to-be-built, 15-storey, "dorm" next door will hide much of the Wedge's north face.

I get that costs need to be cut and budgets, and I’m guessing this build is already waaay behind schedule, but it’s one of the most disappointing so far. Especially when you compare it to 1400 Quadra and how classy the brick looks.

I was excited for the Wedge building shown in the renderings, but this is (so far) not meeting my expectations….I can’t help but think the architect of this building must be embarrassed at how much it’s changed from the original more sculptural look of the scattered window panels, especially on the south side.
