A photo taken today from our construction camera.
Due Time restriction, you need to visit my site to see updated photos of over 150 projects shot the last few weeks. Working on my February Photos up to January 30, 2013 now.

Feb 4, 2012 Update:
It has been a while, but I'm taking a little break from CFA studying to post these pics.
I've also shared all 130 construction pics on Google+ : https://plus.google.com/photos/11055...27873102635265
Currently it looks like they are working on the ground floor.

Some working shots:
Neat. I'm always curious around this stage of the process to see the buildings in person to get a feeling for how they're positioned in relation to their surroundings. It will be really interesting to finally get a sense for how large that plaza really is
Jivey's pictures make it official--in the northeast corner, the pillars are well above grade for the first storey.
The rest of the work is all at grade.
I can definitely feel the difference as I walk to work each morning. The eastern walls are starting to be put up and enclosing the driveway space between the two buildings. The walls that are up are already taller than the trees lining the edge of the Minto driveway.
There is a wide setback on the east side; looks like a transition from the parking level to the above levels. Soon we'll see some visible changes filling up this corner of Yonge and Sheppard; a couple of floors and the building will be higher than the former Metro's arch. By the way, Tridelwebmaster, the webcamera got stock with the last night updates, please re-boot it!
March 2 2012 Update:
The two towers begin to rise.
That looks to be a very tall first floor. Excellent.
Becoming visible from Yonge:
March 16th Update:
The first floor is progressing on both towers. It looks to be 25-30ft ???. Maybe 3 times the height of a regular floor.
