Great to hear, this is one of the best midrise designs i've ever seen. Would fill one of the last holes in the Bridges and make the area feel much more complete too. Now to start building more mixed-use along the north side of 1 Ave NE!
Higher density zoning is coming down the pipe for the north side of 1st Ave. I'm not sure where it's at these days, but one of the city's main streets initiatives is for the area north of 1st, and IIRC the heights proposed would be around 4 floors.

My guess is that underneath the paneling all the measurements are constant floor to floor and that it's just a matter of the height and width of the white facade on the thinner outer shell of each floor varying slightly from level to level. If it weren't that would mean that the either the height of the floors or the spaces in between them were not constant and I'm guessing that would cause a bunch of headaches for things like stairs and elevators.
I suspect you're right, the balcony rail supports are shorter on the floors that have the thicker floors.

Hi,
Did Notice the Floor Differences, but didn't Give It a 2nd thought. Makes It Interesting.

Tnx,
Operater.

That is the site of the Save-on-foods project with rental above that is under construction (Rhapsody I think is the name?). So, not the design in the link.

Edit: Whoops, didn't see that a thread discussing this proposal was already created, and my suspicion was already confirmed by retrofiturbanism and surrealplaces.
