    City hall didn't ban the slaughter of live animals. There's no other way to slaughter

    An LCBO or beer store might serve well here. There is so much residential density in this one block. I was hoping for a walmart, if they ever plan to buy everyone else and convert it into one giant space

    According to the recent news article, the roof is to be uplit from the exterior. I had no idea the roof was to be offset, according to the renders, the LED strips were to run all the way up the curved portion, including the roof. Does anyone know when or why they changed it?

    Maybe the western slope was always intended to be offset? We've only ever seen renderings of the eastern slope. There could also be a second row of columns to go outside of the current row. It wouldn't surprise me if a screen wall at almost 900 feet needed to be doubled up for structural stability. That thing is going to be subjected to incredible wind loads. It'd also leave some room for catwalks and access ladders to go in behind the glass.

    More pieces have been added to the western slope, 1 piece away from reaching this peaks final height. I also assume the cladding will form a smooth curved edge considering the jagged nature of the beams.
