No more ad hominem in here. Debate the issues. Deletions are pending.
Taken today. Still no glass - but this shot looks pretty sweet.
Looks good overall, although the tower is a bit of a slab much like NXT.
From yesterday, at Cherry Beach:

Fitting into the rest of the skyline:

Market Wharf is almost topped out - working on the mechanical now.

I don't know if the new approach that aA was obliged to take with their redesign resulted in the new forms that we see in some of their other condos - tripartite designs where mass plays off mass, podium-like slabs are parked atop buildings, and we get "double podiums" with such buildings as 60 Colborne and King Charlotte - but it certainly works well with this one.
my favourite part of this whole development is the podium section with awnings along Market Street. Adds a great visual appeal to what was previously a neglected dead end and of course is a modern take on the traditional aesthetic of the neighbourhood. Hard to tell from the photos above but have they started to neglect the sidewalk planters already? When I saw them last year they were full of colourful flowers... The Jaris Street side is not as nice and I wish it could have been set further back from the street.
