Awesome stuff... this weather wall is a TRUMP lookalike. Does this mean they won't be having any words printed on the weather wall?

Hmmm, from the looks of it, if the weather wall didn't already have graphics or text on it when it got installed, I doubt that we should expect them to put it up afterwards. It would be too bad, cuz I was hoping to see another banner like TRUMP or SHANGRI-LA rise skywards :)

i think it's probably since there's no real need to advertise the tower as it has no hotel portion to it as well as retail. it doesn't need to be put out there as much as the other hotel/residences,

nice ^^^^, this tower is going to be huge... right up there with the other CBD towers... And what will become the "official" landmark from the gardiner indicating "Yonge street", just as Royal bank Plaza/Brookfield place is to Bay street.

It hasn't raised much since our last update. I guess they were concentrating on the Lean-To (*sigh* I miss the Boot already) on the Yonge Street side.

This building should really be making it's presents known by Thanksgiving.
Hey there,

Just a friendly note: You probably meant to say, "this building should really be making its presence known by Thanksgiving."

It's = it is (which would be incorrect to use in the sentence above)
Presents = gifts

Not trying to be rude; just trying to be helpful! :)

Is anyone else already tired of the "Deconstructed Box" all-broken-angles-style of architecture already? Such as is being used at the podium base here on L. It's a style that got old fast, in my books.

Like Gehry's crumpled metal, Libeskind rehashes the same theme on whatever he touches, again and again.

We get it! You like to show a Box can be Not a Box... No move on!

*shakes fist* Damn you Libeskind!
