    A building height of 89.8 m (294.6 ft.); and - how many floors high will this be? Is the rendering an accurate reflection in relation to the height (stories please for layman terms) of the neighbouring buildings? It does not look like it is. It is hard to get a real picture without the understandable information. thank you

    This proposal is for a 34-storey building. You can see elevations (side profiles) of the building starting on page 78 of the application booklet. Note that the current proposal includes a “decorative” architectural roof above the top floor that covers the rooftop mechanical equipment. The architectural roof stands 3 m (10 ft.) higher above the top floor. 

    In addition to the renderings, the applicant has provided schematic diagrams showing how the proposed building compares with the streetscape, starting on page 22 of the application booklet. Note that the streetscape outlines include both existing buildings and recently approved, but not yet constructed buildings.
