Wow, that Plaza 75 would have been kick ass! Too bad it never got built. Great idea for a thread, I wonder what other proposals were out there that we've never seen?

Does anyone remember the phase II of First Canadian centre? At one point it was supposed to be something like 70 stories, then was downgraded to something like 55 and then not built at all.

Yes I Do!. The 2nd Tower was to B 64 Floors. B of M Planned to Build 2 Bldgs. The DEPRESSION of 1982 Hit so It NEVER GOT BUILT. I Believe a Model is Still in the Main Lobby of 1st Cdn Centre, They Built the Foundations for the 2nd Tower and Turned it into a Mini Plaza of Sorts. I Doubt the 2nd Tower Will Ever Get Built.

Tnx,
Operater.

Hi Group,

Re Plaza 75. It Was to Go Up Where the Parking Structure is Behind the Bldgs in the 400 Block of 8th Ave.S.W. Never Got Built. Victim of Poor Planning and the 1982 Depression.

Tnx,
Operater.

The second tower will never get built as was originally designed, which is unfortunate. Looked really cool. The newest design is a 25 storey monument to boredom.

Does anyone have a pic of the buildings? I tried googling and couldn't find anything.

Hi Group,

There is a Project at 56/3rd St. S.W. With a Crane etc. I live a Block Away. Nothing much Happens on the Site. I was at the Site and picked up some Information.
Its Owned by "Calhome Properties". It will B 17 Floors Up, a Low Income Project as Such. For now as Money becomes Available they do Some Work. Its all I have for now. Hope it Helps, OK.

Tnx,
Operater,
