    Over the weekend someone told me five more floors. So that works out.

    I'm really gonna miss the sparkle of the construction lights all up the tower in the distance every night.

    Me too. But then there will be the Stantec lights for quite a while going up.

    The consistent pattern of the construction lights make it look like a space ship coming in for a landing. Once it is occupied you won’t get that illusion.

    I too am dreading the day that the construction lights disappear, replaced with whatever LED-based foofaraw they've got planned.

    Stantec will have its led strips going up the side of the building though!

    Look forward to some of the other projects to be completed to fill in the skyline from all angles. Getting close..

    I could see the Marriott peeking through the woods south of the 41 Avenue SW interchange going north on Highway 2.

    You can also see it driving south on St. Albert Trail on the left side just past Giroux Road in St. Albert, juts peaking above the hill.

    Let me make this clear. So you're saying the residential floors will go up to floor 54, while mechanical will take up the top two floors? If so, there are only two occupied floors left as of now.

    Haven't looked at the drawings in a long time, and may well have deleted them from our server, so I can't really confirm anything for you outside of what you've already quoted.

    This is correct. Level 54 is the highest residential floor.

    I bet level 54's ceiling height will be quite substantial too compare to the lower floors.

    I don't recall which, but either the top floor of Stantec or JW is 20+ feet high, with mezzanines etc. Pretty sure the penthouse and sub-penthouse levels (top 4 levels possibly in one or the other?) in both buildings do step up pretty significantly in both buildings, but again, it's been awhile since I looked at the drawings so please don't hold me to anything!

    That sounds familiar to me as well and makes sense considering the type of unit and price.

    12' ceilings for 54th floor for Katz. He has the entire upper floor.

    Daryl Katz will then have himself an ultra prime location to observe his trophy tower rise nearby! Honestly, we gotta be thankful for these movers and shakers ... I bow down to thee, please make "your" tower tall and stunning!

    Canoe will likely be going in (unless a different name is chosen under the Oliver & Bonacini Brand) and a very high end bar in the lobby (think Pacific Rim in Van).

    Excuse the quality of the photo. Across the street from WEM. Interesting angle. Shows the impact of JW and Stantec have on our skyline from the west.

    Apparently you can see the tower from a high point near Mulhurst Bay.

    I wish I had my DSLR, those clouds looked phenomenal yesterday with bright blue skies to the west illuminating the towers in a saturated dark blue/silver color we would recognize in renderings.

    There was no need to change that plaque. We are the City of Champions.

    ^^Fantastic night shot ! I knew that , at night and the right angle, Stantec & JW would look like one mega structure. Thanks @ TheGreatestX

    Definitely for right now, but, once it is finished, Stantec' s bullion fins will most likely set them apart as the led lights should luminate enough for the eyes to differentiate the two objects.
