    It's because photography of it is extremely difficult. It's essentially impossible to do it from Eglinton so you have to go into the rear laneway and squeeze your camera through a fence.

    And the gaps are so narrow that only cell phone cameras can get the shot. I've tried with a few lenses and it's pretty much impossible!

    It doesn't help that, once 1 Eglinton East is completed, this tower will be sandwiched out of view for the most part. The design is also pretty forgettable.

    Sometimes I forget that there is a 58 storey building being built here, given how tucked in it is to the site.

    It seems that they can now start building upwards. So was the big square hole that used to be on the lower right side of the picture above got poured completely with concrete? What was the purpose of drilling 10 round holes in that square hole?

    Love that mega bracing in Edward's photo. Who needs tall buildings when we can gaze into construction pits !

    Looks like they are setting up a crane.
