It's amazing how much this intersection has changed. Street view of the main entrance location from 2009:

Knockout wall for future Finch LRT. View after coming downstairs from the northwest corner of Finch and Keele entrance.

The renderings show some sort of screen. I agree that it looks unfinished. I hope whatever they use is of a quality that befits the rest of the station.

I don't like, don't understand this part.
Is it done, completed? Am I missing something?
How many pigeons will make this their home?

Please cite sources when linking photos you didn't shoot. In this case, mine.
 
The more I visit Finch West, the more I can't help but notice the shoddy attention to detail all over the place. Like this poorly placed sign that's obstructed by that giant column as you descend down the escalator.

Or the fact that all the countdown clocks are shoved at the very end of the platform where almost no one will see them.

And what the heck is going on here?

Also check out @Northern Light 's post (link). Compared to all the other new stations, the execution of this one leaves much to be desired.

I think Finch West, York U, and Pioneer Village will see middle of the road ridership, VMC with some lowish end ridership, and Downsview Park / 407 sitting shockingly empty.
