    This morning. Glass is looking very nice, arches are starting to appear (I assume that the brick will somehow be mounted on them?):

    Interesting that the arches themselves are precast units.

    Yes, it's not your typical pre-cast brick system. Two layers with a vapor barrier in between, I believe.

    Lovely! Plus that's on a cloudy day. Can't wait to see some sun on it.

    My goodness that glass is stunning. I wish Allied could just take over all developments around the King West area, at least they make an effort to be different from the other generic developments we've seen around the area.

    Amazing what a positive visual effect something as small as rounded glazing units at the corners of a building can make. Definitely a premium, but glad to see Allied making another positive contribution to the area.
