The second wave of plans are in for the hugely ambitious Frank Gehry-designed, David Mirvish-financed condo complex on the block currently home to the Princess of Wales Theatre. The tweaks, which include a new, cloud-like podium made of glass and wood, are garnering positive reviews for their clearer, more fluid (and still very Gehry) vision, but are still a long way from being approved. Mirvish is still in negotiations with city planners, who want all three towers taken down by about 30 storeys and several heritage structures preserved. City staff expect to make their final recommendations in early 2014.
