Purely speculative? Or based on something?

Wait, was there talk of two towers? There's the silhouette of a second one to the left of this.

Looks very impressive, I hope this project comes to fruition.

Looks like someone is envisioning a potential replacement for/addition to the existing Manulife building. Who knows if it's reality, but makes sense considering Manulife's plans for their workforce.

The original rumours were suggesting a two tower project but when the news agencies started generating their articles there was only mention of a single tower concept with a potential food store at street level.

Manulife Insurance and Manulife Real Estate are separate entities... their real estate division is alive and well.

The geometry isn't right for that - everything in this image is in the block between Joseph and Water.

The block between Water and Francis, I think you meant.  Both the tower shown in the "render" and the "shadow tower" beside it would be in that block.

Francis, yes. The 'male first name' streets in that area always confuse me.
