Just take off the roof. Smaller ROCP.
Thanks, I couldn't put my finger on it, but that's what it reminds me of. Same complaint with much-hated RoCP, of course.

It's kind of a cross between the earlier Pinnacle Centre condos and RoCP, both of which are unspectacular. Worse, it's about to be surrounded by some very interesting entertainment district condos, so it'll look all the more boring and out-of-place.

Does anybody know what will happen to Second City? Could they move to the former Diesel?

This was brought up at the meeting last night. Currently there are no plans to move Second City into the new building. They have some space, but would like to dedicate it to offices rather than theatre.

Did anyone who attended the meeting catch...

- who the uninspired developer is?
- which d-list architectural firm is d-signing this?
- how many storeys of this rubbish they want to foist on us? I can't tell from the render (and you can never really trust renders anyway) whether they're showing 39 or 40 storeys.

So this would mean bye-bye Gretzky's forever? Or would they relocate or get space in the new building?

I'm looking forwad to this development. There are so much potential in this area for some great developments.
