Pretty sure hes talking about the elevator core which I dont think has actual floors you stand on - It's hollow. Someone correct me if Im wrong.

Largely hollow, but there will be crosswalls between the elevator banks and I presume there will be landings for where the elevators call. Not easy to tell if they get poured at the same time or follow a little later though.

More 'Up' Friday

Westside Story: They are in the process of rising up once again this week. A couple of weeks ago I lost my view of the TD pretend Mies building along Bay St and today I lose my view of the RBC building along Bay and Front. A few more weeks and BMO will disappear and so will my premium million dollar view :oops:

IMG_1353.jpeg


You may be able to see the workers on the two blue platforms (below) facing south, these platforms are specifically used to attach an 'L' shaped length of steel which acts as a shelf for the corrugated metal decking. They are working on the metal decking further down in this shot. The yellow thing hanging from the crane baffles me. I did, one day, see them using it to move preformed stairs into one of the open spaces in the core, but other than that they just seem to poke it into random holes here and there throughout the week. Are then any construction experts who are not proctologists that can explain this tool?

Eastside Story:

A general picture of the east side at the same zoom as the first two photos

IMG_1355.jpeg


A closer look shows them pouring part of the ramp for the bus exit from level 02. They are also working on the wall separating 18 Yonge from the new construction

IMG_1356.jpeg


And finally a closer look at the rebar and floor work for level 02. There is a tremendous amount of rebar and plastic tubing forming two very large beams north to south along the east and west side of what will be the bus bays on the second level. This pour looks like it is going to be very thick as you can see the height of the perimeter knee walls around the work area

You can see them working the metal decking on a little lower down in this shot. The yellow thing hanging from the crane baffles me. I did, one day, see them using it to move preformed stairs into one of the open spaces in the core, but other than that they just seem to poke it into random holes here and there throughout the week.

It's a crane extension, it's used when the crane cannot reach certain places, like those core platforms.

That square in front of the ACC has such an intense urban jungle feeling with towers rising all around and the highway running through them. It didn't even occur to me till now that this will add to that in a pretty dramatic way. And then The Hub!
