They are only a tenant in this and have nothing to do with QuadReal's CC3 proposal. The latter has also been around for close to two years now so the bank would have been briefed to see if they wanted to occupy the space.

CIBC is spread out between many buildings (I know they are in the PwC building along with others). They ran out of space just like RBC did a few years ago.

1.75 million square feet of required space is a huge area. Would take up 100% of CC3. I'm guessing there was a bidding war and bcIMC lost.

Third and final crane is up and running. Now this view should look the exact same until maybe late this summer. :)

All the way down and up again. I suppose most of the dramatic changes will take place over longer periods of time now. It seems like it's going to be cycles of: forming ---> rebar ---> pouring ---> repeat. I counted 58 people on site on Wednesday, that included the orange crane assembly crew, but I imagine the actual day to day crew is probably much smaller. The dump trucks are cleaning up the last remaining material that has been pulled out between 18 Yonge and the tracks. I'll let the picture tell the rest of the story.

It's going to be super interesting seeing the floors poured for the lower levels from this view! Can't wait to see it go!

This is the most exciting project in Toronto right now for me. I love big office towers. I have a feeling it's going to be executed very well.

How long do you think it will take to set up the bottom floor with rebar etc so they can execute the big pour ?

It has most likely been discussed but I'm wondering when the other tower will be built? Does anyone know?

Not so much of a big pour here - it's just a standard 6 inch deep slab on grade for the most part - unlike say One Bloor East where they poured a 7 feet deep raft slab.

Wow, through this whole boom I don't remember seeing a 3 crane project! Does anyone know what the last building that took 3 cranes to build in Toronto was? BCE place? Scotia? Richmond and bay stump?

Why the massive difference between here and Bloor? Wouldn't you need a larger raft here being so close to water?

I imagine it relates more to structural issues.

I believe that bedrock is significantly shallower here than at Yonge and Bloor as well, which may change things. I'm no structural engineer though..
