When we last referenced Cosmo, the fifth tower in the Spectrum development at Georgia and Beatty it was in June 2011 when it was just above street level. The site was originally intended as non-market housing, but developer Concord negotiated a complicated scheme to buy back the development rights in exchange for land for non-market housing nearby. James K M Cheng’s design is similar to the four existing towers, but lacking a coloured stripe – although in the glazing there are some subtle pastel details. Now it’s very close to completion, and you can decide if it looks much like the artist’s rendering. It certainly fits the style of the other four towers, but with a lot more white paint, and as we noted before, less bold colour.
