    Did anyone notice these columns on the Front St. side? They are not vertical, but don't remember there being columns that looked like this in the drawings. Photos from Nuit Blanche on Saturday.

    Yes, a different project. Was just stating that exterior brick walls are not always laid by hand brick. The photo above shows them installing "brick" columns. Was just trying to be informative.

    Those are required for drainage, thermal breaks and support for the bricks. In the article attached bricks can only be supported so high 50ft (15m) before needing a support angle (structure) to continue and basically repeat the next 50ft. At this point you have a break in the fascade and need...

    Unfortunately this probably won't happen also due to possible shadows on Queens Park or a park near Ryerson. they are sticklers for shadows nowadays.

    Really?? We have very few towers with ornamental tops. I think they are a much needed addition and would be very welcome. better than all the flat tops out there that we normally get. But also your opinion is yours, we can't all agree every time.

    Probably not currently. but they might be able to at some point with maybe some clever work. amenity space would be key in that regard.

    Yes, only the old soap factory has an official design. All others are placeholders based on splitting the 10 million sqft of proposed office space over the rest of the buildings. Designs for each building will be done when the architects are selected per building.
