    It would be great if they could take on Herzog et de Meuron as lead architect to co-ordinate this with 1200 Bay.... :)

    The One has its own set of problems, but there is one bit of good news.... the province just announced that construction work, and not just for healthcare projects, is essential, and will not be subject to the COVID-19 lockdown....see #28 "Construction 26. Construction projects and services...

    That's not really answering the question... the city still holds the ultimate power with the occupancy permit.... the building is no good to anyone if occupancy is not allowed.... so why not let him build?

    Great video and a great tower... . love it when the architect and the developer consciously set out to create something special, and are not afraid to create a new landmark....... /always felt that San Francisco is sort of a sister city to Toronto in many ways
