I am liking the sleek upper portion of the tower as well. For me I think the best part is the choice of dark glass. This is a tower that will boldly stand out under every lighting condition. It will not be like the Four Season's or Bay Adelaide which can turn almost invisible under certain lighting conditions because they are clad in highly reflective glass which turns the towers into giant mirrors.I know I'm probably in the minority, but as the top third of the building starts to reveal itself, I'm liking this project more and more... Aura has some well documented warts, but I think it will be a handsome addition when complete...
I asked the same question at the briefing. The answer - no! It was strctly artistic license. Too bad, eh!Does anyone know if the curtain wall section of the tower will have LED lighting features? The nighttime renderings make it appear that way but I'm not sure if that is someone using artistic licence.
So I was walking by the neighbourhood today:
I saw lights on in a few of the apartments on lower floors Sunday night. Could be construction left them on, but there were lights.Is this occupied now? They've opened up the fencing to make the garage and driveway accessible, and I noticed people coming and going from the lobby in the basement with boxes and such.
You are correct. There will be 2 condo corps. Floors up to 31 are taking possession as I speak. They started giving out keys last week, I believe.As I understand, there will actually be two condo corps in teh building. One for the lower floors, and one for teh higher floors. Some folks are likely to take possession before the construction is complete and teh building envelope closed.
