    when tomms posts on a thread... you know you have to check it out ^^^
    i'm really disoriented... where did you take that shot from??? it looks like it's taken from a high altitude.... Shangri-la??? or a UFO?

    BTW: How high are the ceilings on the master bedroom skyplex thing? they look real short in comparison to the floors below.

    and interesting to note, in Tomms pics, due to the weird angle, the setback on the North Side looks RETARDEDLY out of place!

    Judging from the angle(north of Trump) and the height(approx. 750ft) Its from Shangri-la's crane.

    that is intense... The Shangri-la penthouses will be basically that height.
    hard to imagine, just a few years ago, 1 King West had the highest penthouse in the city....

    A very nice helicopter video by Dimitry49 on Youtube... shows Trump, Shangri-la, and all those sexy ones!

    *when the camera was approaching the CBD from the north, I was like, "wait for it... wait for it" in anticipation for Trump close-up, then!--- 'pans to CN Tower'... ... what a block...

    the east side of the dome looks to be fully clad. it's hard to see the exact colour from the ground, but it has a light grey tone to it.

    That's just the first layer of steel decking. The final cladding will not be applied for quite some time.

    I'm a little confused. Wasn't the dome to be glass?

    The roof of the dome is being clad with titanium-zinc tiles. The north and west shearwalls will be clad in glass.

    I suspect The Toronto Star's Christopher Hume has let his leftist political views cloud any real architectural critique of this building. This majestic piece of post-modernism doesn't try to hide that it is a towering symbol of capitalist wealth. That's something that doesn't sit well in his socialist wonderland.

    The temporary steel box around the spire is now completely removed. The onion dome looks spectacular even without the glass!

    Hi Steveve!

    I know. I've missed them too. We're working on a new one. Just reviewing the script now. Will be done soon! Cheers!
