As the L Tower pushes ever closer to its final height, with its unique blue cladding now covering over half of the structure, the completed building is not too hard to imagine. Last week, the first panels of balcony glass were installed on the western face of the tower. Developed by the team of Castlepoint Realty Partners, Cityzen, and Fernbrook Homes, every architectural detail of this unique and fascinating addition to Toronto's skyline is being scrutinized by UrbanToronto readers.

The laminated glass panels will also be added to the balconies on the south and east faces of the building - the north face will have no balconies.  The translucent-white balcony panels will line up in a similar arrangement to the vertical white lines already visible all over the facade of the tower.
