The Yates on Yates is one of two 20-storey residential towers proposed for a property spanning the 700-blocks of Yates and Johnson streets.
The tower will encompass 122-suites of one, two, and three-bedroom condominium residences and four townhomes. A ground floor commercial component will front onto Yates Street.

So it would seem the sides of these Chard buildings were designed as sides. Are they expecting buildings of equivalent height next door?
I think the look of the east facade could be greatly improved by constructing a more interesting building on the Floyd's lot.
Agreed. I wonder how many decades that will take?
...when it finally allows two tall-ish residential buildings in the heart of downtown it suddenly decides that plain repetition isn't such a big deal after all on the tower levels.
The repetition of form (and overall blandness of the eastern and western facades) seemed much less apparent in the renderings. I remain hopeful that when complete and occupied the towers will seem a bit more lively.
Go back to the beginning of this thread and it seems the CoV was pleased about the exciting architectural style.
I was grumbling about the very conventional lower levels and the absence of anything particularly exciting.
But since then I've come to feel much better about the podiums, and now I'm grumbling about the tower levels.
FYI: the old illustrations suggested much less repetition on the tower levels, which may have confused all of us.
And here I was just glad to see a contrail in the second pic.
