If that's still its name. Just noticed the glazing is almost complete after sitting for a few years as a concrete shell. Looking good! Anyone with a digicam wanna snap some fotos next time they do a CP tour? 350 Adelaide West just east of Spadina.

The project looks like: http://www.urbandb.com/canada/ontario/toronto/templar_hotel/image5.html

Wow it was conceived way back in 2000!

Agreed. I can watch it from my apartment. They have used some really nice glazing on this. I only wish other developments used elements as nice this. The glass wraps around the corner so that it looks like there are glass boxes protruding from the concrete shell. It's quite attractive.

Actually, the glazing was (partially) installed a couple of months ago, and there's been no activity the last few weeks. This thing grows in spurts, and the spurts have been brief and spaced out.

Does this building have a rear emergency exit? It seems to be snug up against Invitation House (where you get those invitations people talk about) on one side and that little greasy spoon on t'other.

Are the Knights Templar back? Are they behind this thing? Like the Cistercians they were minimalists, so it might be possible, given the look of the building ...

Good see they are branching out their businesses once again. I can't wait to see the doorman.

I hear they're actually the ones who control the British Crown,
and they're really the ones who keep the Metric system down.

The photos were taken January 3 of the Templar Hotel. The Hilton Garden Inn crane is being reflected in the windows.
