    I only ask cause all of the renderings seem to appear like they are slightly different. Though I may just be thinking this as ... It's rounded and casts differently in regards to reflectivity. If that's even a word.

    What are the chances that ground level retail tenants will be able to 'personalize' their entrances on Yonge? Zero?
    It'd be nice as it'd be in keeping with the miss-mash of store fronts around it (which I personally think makes it much more lively). Plus, anything would be better than what's there now.

    That's interesting that they're not cladding the middle of the north elevation. Maybe that actually is curtainwall the whole way up. I'm not a fan of the project, but I am at least happy that they're running the curtainwall all the way down and not just transitioning at the mid-point

    Yonge Street was dead yesterday morning--felt like a small town. Needs more condos maybe?

    That's what the renderings have always implied, although in light of the architectural firm in question there's been, shall we say, a lack of charity in these parts in assuming it until it actually went up. There are balconies on the middle of the south facade which may make things a bit interesting, but the implication is that the projecting strip is continuous with the tallest part of the tower.

    No idea when we'll see actual curtainwall cladding go up. Might lag the windowwall by a fair bit. I think the north strip where the curtainwall would drop down is being used for the hoist, no?

    Wow. I count today that it looks like its at the 23rd floor - and still well above the 23rd floor level of the DC across the street. This sucker is going to be a lot taller than a lot of people realize seeing its less than a 3rd of the way up so far (29.4% of the way up actually). Will the mechanical PH add anything to this height profile?

    I was always dreading the window-wall section of this tower, but I'm loving what I'm seeing. I never imagined a mass of mullions would look so good! Also looking forward to seeing how the added retail will change the look and feel of the podium, as it's kind of a blank slate right now.

    Taken today. Thanks to the count for all his Aura pictures!
