This is the worst version yet...I have almost no faith in Concord Adex to produce something better than this rendering.

Let's hope for some positive revisions.

This project has taken a turn for the worse. The rendering looks horrible. If I was an original buyer when Crestford was managing the project I would want my money back. How can Concord add 10 storeys without reducing the ceiling heights for every floor? 8 feets ceilings in only 500 to 650 sq ft units will feel Claustrophobic. Concord Adex's new motto should be "Never Fails to disappoint".

The balconies on the East side appear to extend slightly higher now (above the break in the mechanical levels), and it looks like balconies were also added to the south face.

Definitely a Casa-efficiation of the original design.

Even (assuming) absent floors ending in ‘4’, this may end up being shortest 95 storey tower in the world.
Hold on, that's an interesting idea. Maybe there are 85 storeys but they're just calling it a "95-storey tower" because they skipped 10 numbers. Maybe Concord hasn't actually changed anything.

Interesting. Anyone want to manually count the number of floors on the Concord renderings?

Don't worry, Concord will surprise us with the best aesthetically designed tower in North America based on their atrocious work at City Place
Honestly, despite my doubt, I was hoping maybe Concord would realize all the negative feedback on their work at city place and just erase everything by making YSL a true landmark.
They could have at least get this project through design competition and even choose the last place design

Some say that if you look in the dictionary for 'Delusions of Grandeur' the Concord Adex logo is right next to it...

Time Warner Centre and the TransAmerica Pyramid, dear lord. neither of these developments are anything like this. Which copywriter that hasn't spent a minute in development came up with this? they aren't even the same asset class.

At least they didnt compare it to Ryugyong Hotel.

or The Great Pyramid of Giza. A bit on the brutalist side but nevertheless a true classic...
The Ancient Egyptians are known to play switcharoo:


King Tut's famous death mask was originally meant for another pharaoh.

Many of his treasures, including the sarcophagus, were meant for another pharaoh.

Even his tomb was originally meant for a noble (most likely Ay) and the tomb originally meant for King Tut was used for his successor Ay (yes, Ay became a pharaoh) instead.

Yes, King Tut's mummification was a rush job even by ancient Egyptian standards.

I would not be surprised if the plot of land where YSL should be built was meant for a different building.
