So when is the KPMG signage going up? RBC managed to put theirs up long before the building was complete...

You mean the homeless bathing area? How does that take the place of a water feature as focal point in the BA plaza? Its like saying, no need for fountains at Yonge-Dundas Square b/c there's some at Nathan Phillips Square. (I'm not mad at you but at the developers.)

I wasn't saying that I liked the absence of a water feature. I was just replying to another post asking if there was going to be one.

Still no sign of what the surface treatment for the ground level area of the footprint of BAC2 will be like. Waterproofing, etc. has been ongoing in this area for the last couple of weeks. The surface may turn out to be rather underwhelming, as there don't appear to be enough granite pavers on-site to cover it. Looks like there is just enough to finish off the main plaza areas. Anyone taking bets on gravel and chain link fence?:eek:

Those sun shades on the Four Seasons don't do it any favours

The Globe & Mail's "Report on Business" magazine is celebrating its 25th year in publication. In the magazine there are before and after pictures of Toronto, downtown Toronto 25 years ago and today. What a difference! And the Bay Adelaide Centre looks quite distinguished.
