    They are going to be painting them. They did one balcony a while back. It's a grey colour instead of white.

    The Boom was been worked on between 4:15 and 4:30 as I headed back into Toronto. It was gone when I came home. You can see the workers on the boom.
    Will get some close up shots when I am over that way on Friday.

    I kind of agree with this, however I will wait until the balcony glass has been completely installed all the way to the top.

    Wow... take away the condos by the Humber in Toronto in the first shot, and you've got Calgary with the Rockies in the background. (Even though its just clouds)

    I'm not sure where comments like these come from - have you been to Calgary ? They have an imensely dense core with quite a few tall buildings.
    The only thing somewhat accurate about such a comment is calgary doesn't have too much yet outside of the core (i.e. like NYCC / SCC / MCC ...) or that many condos in the core either.
    But from a sky line point of view they're loaded up with office buildings.

    Just want to create any annomesity between the west / east It's almost as bad as the 416 vs 905.
    If I had a penny for every time someone asked me why I was looking up…
