Was on the ULI Tour de Toronto today. They expect to be completed construction around July, then set up exhibits for a grand opening in late September.

Yes it looks great! I have some misgivings about potential vandalism for what is pretty secluded site - but all in all, above expectations. Hope they found the funds to extend the Corten eastern as in the original plans.

I can't believe you just bumped this thread just to say that...

And I can't believe that I just learned Google uses goats to mow their lawns too.

Its a historical site. Using modern landscaping machines to maintain the site, takes away from the historical "look". Guess they can photoshop the machines out, like they do with the background buildings.

You just built a building with Corten and Profilit right underneath an expressway in an area surrounded by multistory condos and you are worried about the impact of lawnmowers on the "historical look"? Can we have more updates and less noise please?

Thanks kram - great project. The Corten ramparts looks really great. I wish they have a decent lighting scheme - it would look superb at dusk/night.
