Toronto Backstage On The Esplanade | 116.73m | 36s | Cityzen | P + S / IBI

Hmm. One small section of the podium goes without limestone? Or is there more hidden off to the left? There's none around the corner to the right, I've checked back to old photos to determine that. In any case, that seems a bizarre choice to me.

Looking further back for evidence, there is this shot by sMT from May of last year, with "proof" that something different was going to happen here, but still, there's no obvious reason for why it's been done that way. Unless—Earth is OUT of that limestone!! (Cue the dramatic music.)

A limestone famine?
 
They still would have had to apply an A/V barrier and insulation on that portion regardless of what it's clad in. Not sure why on Earth they spec'd EIFS there instead of the stone; almost feels like a temporary measure until a replacement panel can be shipped in. :oops:
