Thanks for the info ^. So are those referring to the translucent video screens as depicted in the renders? I always thought those were placeholders for marketing the retail. If they do plan on something similar (or more grounded in reality) I'm all for it. So this explains why the ground level has been cleaned up in the past few weeks...

I don't know feels like the construction speed has slowed down?
Several of the more knowledgeable posters on the board have explained why cold weather slows down construction. I don't trust my memory sufficiently to venture a repetition of the explanation but it certainly was convincing.

It takes much longer to do formwork/concrete in cold weather. More time to wrap forms, more time to tarp/seal the working level, more time to re-station heaters and fans, and of course, first and foremost, it takes longer for the concrete to set.

Ah, I thought it was clear, but apparently it was not.
I used your photos, from this post!

Since the whole building no longer fits in a single frame, I wanted to put together the whole shot. There's a bit of fisheye happening, and things feel a little squished vertically. I could have probably tweaked the panorama settings a little better.

LOL that is funny! I was thinking of doing a panorama shot to get the whole building in one shot, but the last time I did that I wasn't able to upload it. Perhaps this weekend I'll do a panorama for my update and see if it will load.

Came across First Gulf's commercial space leasing brochure, it has 2 renderings I haven't seen before (p1 / p7).

It also shows floor plans of P2/P1/L1/L2 and how it will function, to those that are interested in the details like myself:

I'm not sure how accurate the depiction of the 2nd floor is now. I believe, if I am reading the pdf correctly, that at the corner of Bloor and Yonge, the northwest corner of the 2nd floor, there is leasable
space there. However, it is currently built out in that area as open to the ground floor, so that there is no leasable space on the 2nd floor at the northwest corner.
