    Toronto | Union Centre | 267m | 52s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    This doesn't seem too much wider than CIBC square. Eye test only though, I couldn't find any measurements regarding the width of these 2 buildings. I'm curious what the DRP would say about CIBC's width not being an issue compared to this being a deal breaker here.

So anytime while they don't have leaves. Winter doesn't work because it's hard to dig--so fall or spring...

    Ya, the Snow lights have been on steady for over a month now. There's still some dead spots on the strip but I'm guessing they're tired trying to fix it. I'm just happy that one day I won't say "oh look, the Trump tower lights are on/broken again"...
