I just realized from the renders how much the 2nd tower is going to balance on the elevator core without really any other support columns, outside the ones funneling the weight into the core. That's a little scary come to think about it.

Kind of crazy to me that the lights are on on practically every single floor. Surely they can turn some of those off when they’re unoccupied.

They do turn off after around 30 mins of no motion. Not sure when the photos taken but the cleaning staff may be why it’s on. They should turn the lights and massive screen in the banking centre off at night though.

Perhaps that is why the core has taken longer than phase one to reach this level. The amount of Rebar must be insane.

It reminds us why The One was so slow in getting its feet off the ground. That is, a lot of complex maneuvering to get the building's weight redistribution mechanics just right.

Two pictures of the bridge this morning and the rest from Saturday.

Getting ready to pour a new edge next weekend?

Why not one more expanded view since I went to the trouble of removing the electrical wires in Lightroom.

Shot between the fence/gate on Sherbourne.
The new track control lights seem to naturally block 16 Yonge .
