    Toronto | Massey Hall Revitalization at the Allied Music Centre | 48.46m | 6s | KPMB

    Nice to see some effort on an otherwise completely blank wall. Reflections should be a lot of fun from here.

    That horizontal beam added on in Benito's pic should be this circled area. Should be a pretty complicated collection of steel, rebar and concrete as the tower elevator core will sit directly above it.

    I think he means the fact that the render from a few years ago and the live cam from a few days ago have the trains in the same spot. The answer to that is that's just one of the places where they keep the cars when not in use.

    Still need to update the height but waiting on full approval on that one...so there may be more to go than this shows!

    Guess there's no question what sort of camera Philip Hayward is using.

    Supporting docs is disabled for me! Hopefully I can find a fix as this will severely impact my progress drawings 😅

    No signs of anything from Dec 23 but the new documents map is also a terrible experience so that may be on me!

    Any other drawings? I can't find the documents anymore for the life of me.

    Precast on the residential podiums looks promising. I think we're tantalizingly close to seeing some glass go up!

    Very carefully!

    Hasn't so far in the span of all the other full lockdowns so I don't see how this would be any different.

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Moynihan was also done on separate land (it's an extension not a renovation). The original Penn station still sits below MSG. Meaning it's an irrelevant comparison because Union is renovating the existing, still in-use station whereas the Penn addition had the majority of the work done in places...

    Toronto | 400 Front Street | 201.05m | 63s | State Building Group | Kirkor Architects

    I mean yeah it doesn't look great in those renders but those renders are also terrible quality so there's very little to go off of for the actual detail of the building. The massing is a snoozefest, regardless.

    Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    Without that staircase you'd have to get up there through the Scotiabank Arena skywalk entrance or up the tower elevators/stairs so this external option helps with public access (both accessibility and visibility).

    If you look at Benito's views you can see the plates they attach to have a lot of holes for bolts. What also is hard to appreciate is that the bolts are likely a few inches in diameter, so they're pretty hefty on top of being numerous. Once all pieces are put together they also gain strength...

    Looks like I guessed wrong on the TD location for that view! 😅

    😅 Been with family but when the bat signal is lit I must oblige... Based on the height compared to the previously completed portions of the building I actually think we're seeing some supports that sit just below the fifth level with the tops of these columns more or less reaching to level 5...

    Toronto | M3 at M City | 260.29m | 77s | Rogers Real Estate | IBI Group

    Under construction, yes. There's a proposal in Burnaby that would surpass it by only a few metres however (and a few on hold like in QC and Edmonton).

    Since we're talking GIFs...here's the final (and full) GIF for the CIBC Square (Phase 1) drawings and the still timeline. This has been a lot of fun and I'm blown away by the support! Hope you've enjoyed it and look forward to seeing all the other drawings grow!
