20 Storeys will tower over Reve but the new Wells Development will hopefully not block too much views cause I've lived in Reve and had east exposure and the city skyline is beautiful at day/night. Will be pushing my clients to purchase in here! Too bad though Whole Foods moved more east.
A 'building' isn't a recognized unit of measurement. Although most of what gets built here these days are point towers, Minto Westside will never be confused for one of those. Check out the dataBase entry for the answer to your question.
The answer lies in the lot size. The lot is large, and the building will be spread out over most of it. Doing a very basic look on a GIS program and measuring the size, I think the lot is around 100,000 sqft if I have the boundaries right. Say 20 floors and you have 2.0 million sqft to fit 1250 units plus amenities and common areas. Very basic, but I hope that helps.
Sales were strong over the weekend and I'm sure it'll be massive on the Nov 22 sales event. This building is priced very competitively. There is still talk of possibly Whole Foods at the site (I'm not so sure about that, maybe Loblaw's or Longo's?) as well as a major hotel brand signing on as well.
