I think you are right. At this point I suspect it's not likely to get fixed by MyBB, as it's been an issue for years already. I wonder if it might be possible to display a warning if attaching a photo via the mobile site?

Ugh you're right.  I feel/dread an eventual software change.  Damnit  

I'll post something in the readme thread

Is it tower 1 or tower 2? Tower one is 21 floors, correct? But I thought it was not facing Victoria St.

Let me rephrase that, the first tower under construction is on the ninth floor.

This one confuses me. The website lists 15 and 19 stories + 3 story podium. When I count the stories, I count 15 and 19 counting the 3 story podium. So is it going to be 15 + 19 or 18 + 22?

Going from memory, I think at one time amendments were made to the project (increased height) for concessions made to the city and I don't think that the publicly available render was ever updated.

I understood that....I was asking because I thought Tower 1 wasn't facing Victoria, this tower is...but if it's tower 1, thats fine...finally Kitchener will have a building with more than 19 floors...(this is 21 or 22...)

The tower facing Victoria is the 15 or 18 stories building, the one behind is the taller one.

Thank you.  I do recall reading about that.  Guess will have to wait till building 1 is finished, then count the floors, lol

It's officially ruined the skyline in Midtown.

(That was for the benefit of Viewfromthe42).

I still remember the MHBP resident who claimed that of 1Vic *sigh* (and, technically, also of Google).

I know you do... I have to add, if I lean out my kitchen window the right way right now, I can see a bit of Midtown Lofts between the two houses behind me. I used to be able to enjoy the sky!!

Okay, /s

The tower facing Victoria is the 15 or 18 stories building, the one behind is the taller one.

Just to clarify, the tower currently being built is 17 floors. There will be one behind it that's 21. They added 2 floors to each tower plan around December 2016. The 17+21 floors INCLUDE the 3 floor podium.


I take progress pics of this construction once a week and I can post more pics if people are interested. They are adding 'brick' to the back right now:
