Nice!

Probably one of the better shots along Tyee. So often we forget how being in a building can provide an excellent vantage point because we're so used to taking shots at street level.

Talk about under building. Am I crazy or it sthat farther back building already topped out. It lots like they are framing the elevator housing but I don't see any more rebar for the side? What is that like five storeys?

I really do hope these are low-detail renderings because the design looks pretty drab:

Sure is a lot of blank concrete on the Tyee side of those buildings. Are those renderings accurate? Has anyone ever seen a model of Synergy?

I thought it was a US Coast Guard vessel when I saw the ad way back when and commented to them on it.. Of Course, no response..

The OC-6 is the green Calmar from VCKC..

BTW... That's a lot of dock for one sali boat eh?

Just like the pier at Railyards.. lots of infrastructure but not much of a float..

Yes, those renderings are nearly identical to the model.

Have the designers got LEED credits for those blocks as heat sinks?

I see all the blue awnings and suspect that this is the sunny side of the building..

Pictures from today:










The last photo was taken from Dylan Leblanc's apartment atop the hill at Cook and Hillside. Great vantage point!

Is it just me or did we turn this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity into a massive wall of fatscrapers?

^Good thing those buildings aren't in front of any sort of picturesque waterway or anything like that. There must be an unsightly railyard or run-down factory on the other side that they wanted to hide.

It doesn't look so bad from Dylan's place. More of a picket fence than a wall. So are picket fences good if they're lowrise instead of highrise?

I think you guys are wrong if you looked at the floorplates these buildings are smaller then many of the "thin" condos in Vancouver it is just the lowrise nature of the first couple of buildings at Dockside.

The Parc Residences looks awesome in that pic.

If people criticized Parc for being "fortress-like" then I can't understand how they could be thrilled with the office block on the far right. It's very wide any way you slice it.

But it is only five floors. I really don't see the difference between that and say a four floor podium.

But I guess if you are trying to point the hypocrisy of their complaints well then I agree.

I was over at Triangle Park the other day and you can really see how urban that area is going to be in a couple years. I like it. I mean I would love to have seen more density on Dockside but still it is quite cool.

Oh man. That looks horrible. Am I to understand that the two buildings on the left are topped out? Everything along that "wall" looks roughly the same height. It's absolutely horrible from this angle (I don't know how it looks in person).

No the building second from the left has three more storeys I believe.
