that north facing sign is going to be massive. I saw the half they put up last night, and it's big. when the other half is added..I can't even imagine.

Folks I could be wrong but I don't think that's half the sign, I think those first two sections are only 1/3 of it. Just by eyeballing it, I think there's 4 sections yet to go up.

I modified one of the photos (very primitive) and include the sign plan for the north side.

I am not sure the photo showed the finished result of the evening. I went by this morning and it looked like half was done. I have no idea whether it was the same as the photo though.

Looks like those hooks on the left are for a sign. I'm guessing either another FutureShop sign or the one I'm looking forward to the most right now: TorontoLife.

Actually, that's an interesting thought: It looks like signs are being put up as their space is being sold. If TorontoLife already purchased the naming rights, why hasn't their sign been put up yet? You would think that they would like to get their money's worth and begin getting exposure for TorontoLife Square as a brand ASAP.

Is it confirmed an Art Deco like sign of Toronto LIfe Square will be hoisted up on the side of the buidling?
The picture on the website is outdated and shows Metropolis.
Penequity needs to update their website.

Looks like demolition on the Dundas Station sidewalk entrance will begin soon. Murray's Demolition has set up shop on Dundas and brought in a big dumpster and bulldozers.

I can't wait for this building to open, so I can get inside.

I was just over at that crappy Future Shop returning a hard drive and dealt with a really cool and knowledgeable girl at the customer service desk who is a supervisor there. I asked her when the new store opens and she said in one month, give or take a few days.
