The pace of construction on this may pick up next week...Seems there are 12 young men within the Raptors organization looking for stuff to fill their days soon.

No way. Jonas will sit on the bench and watch Lou chuck brick after brick.

Please, let's keep this thread reserved for actual talk of the project.

And plus, we all know Lou Williams would just control all the construction machinery until the last second and then screw everything up in an attempt to be heroic.

Now no more Raps bashing, and back to talk about the project!

Good thing it's progressing quickly, they desperately need some practice after that sweep!
The gyms will have "it factor" machines.

Ok seriously, I need to restrain myself now.

A few shots from yesterday are included in a front page story here, but this is the full set of up-to-date construction shots, starting from the southwest corner at Lake Shore and British Columbia, and gradually circling around:

MLSE loves to cheap out on things these days. Maple Leaf Square, BMO field, and Biosteel Centre; the trifecta of cheapening. It's funny how they ask for city money and benefits, and they give us designs like those three in return.

Luckily the ACC was built in the era before the cheapening took place.

Indeed - compare and contrast this and the Boulevard Club addition by Teeple. The architecture of the training plex kind of resembles the performance of the team, I suppose.
