    Exactly. But lets wait until this one is completed before introducing a poll, as there's still more interesting features yet to arrive. Of course so far the building has almost unanimously been viewed in a positive light with little suggestion that it could be classified as love-it or hate-it.

    Duly noted and corrected. Also that means nobody is not in favor of this project.

    Confound that pesky ambiguity! CP should have just drawn up lists of posters who agree and disagree with its cladding! Etc etc

    Wow, so it looks like 3 more floors and then the big mechanical box.

    It's already remarkable how different it feels to walk along the other side of Bay St. That stretch of Bay always felt somewhat backwater to me, on account of all of the parking lots, but now it really does a sense of place

    Compile lists? Ugh....that's work!

    Those random panes of solid green or blue glass look weird to me. Maybe if they were placed with greater frequency it would look more intentional and less like a mistake.

    The pattern is suggestive of the output of a DNA microarray. In any case, tons more pics here:

    I love the fritting -- the "softness" at the edges produces a very nice effect, and gives what is otherwise a huge structure a bit of warmth.

    I asked a construction guy on Bay St about those solid panes. He said they were breakages and will be fixed with more white glass once it is all on.
    The guys from Ellis Don stand across the road supervising when things are being craned over Bay st. They seemed quite happy to answer questions. The curved bays will have curved glass and we should see it soon. Can't wait.

    Such nice colours to those breakages. A very thoughtful post-accident solution.

    I'm sure someone here has an idea, but I'd like to know if/when that parking lot right north of the bus station is going to be developed.

    Yeah, that's one of my most eagerly anticipated parking lot infills. The wasteland in and around the bus station is hideous and so wasteful of such valuable space. Plus, the Bay Street canyon of tall buildings is developing amazingly and this would go a long way to furthering the effect.
