You will be able to see Trump in urbandreamer's shot very, very soon :D!

Urbandreamer, i hope you realize how lucky you are to have such a view! You'll capture Four Seasons, 1 Bloor, Aura, Shangri-la, ICE, trump, and others without any form of obstruction !

A succession of 2 or 3 smaller cranes will get this and subsequent cranes down. The last one will be small enough to go down in pieces in the elevator.

I am kind of surprised the slopped roof is being glazed with the same cladding as the rest of the building. I thought it may have been just spandrel of some sort. Or worse it could have just been that grey stuff they used on the back of the lantern section. Yet still it is a missed opportunity to go "Green"... The roof is south facing and at the perfect angle for the whole thing to be covered in solar panels. They could have recouped some of their electricity usage.

I think the building itself is a missed opportunity. While the shape is sleek and interesting, they dropped the ball on the boring cladding that is nothing but repetitive all the way up. This could have been a stunner if done differently
