So is that the West side that they're preparing first? I wonder if they're going to do one side at a time with a single bridge across one faÃ§ade or all at once with a stage surrounding the building.
Yes they will be doing this on all sides.
In any case, a much overdue project. I just wish the antennas at the top could be cleaned up in some way. Maybe two equal in size and look antennas? The current form takes away from the look of the building.
Just to play devil's advocate and share my view of it, but one benefit of the current antennae is that they contrast with the tower, and really make you notice its clean lines even more by contrast.
As for the marble coming off in that image above, just to the right of 250 Yonge, I am going to hope you're right. That's what it looks like to me.
i hope the marble is given away (not likely). let's just pave the roads and sidewalks of university avenue in stone! now that's a grande boulevard.
