    I'm becoming more and more convinced that this will join Mies' TD Centre and Revell's City Hall as one of the best buildings in the city, and may very well be on the list for visitors to come see(At least for architecture geeks like me). It may be a little early to say, but everything I've seen so far is encouraging. It's great that in a sea of mediocrity and value engineering there is still room for great architecture in this city - even if it is the exception.

    As many say - a city full of star architecture is not attractive. Solid background buildings with the odd standout building like this is what works best.

    I think we've topped off, apart from mech.

    RC3.1.

    RC3.2.

    RC3.3.

    Paint it black. Balcony bottoms blackened. Makes for a more harmonious, cleaner look...

    RC3.4.

    RC3.5.

    RC3.6.

    RC3.7.

    Dry wall delivery...

    RC3.8.

    good to see the off leash dog area. The one they built in the park is utterly useless since it has this massive gravel that hurts dogs feet.

    Not a whole lot of visible progress to report. Mechanical is being built, there are more areas with black cladding. You can form a very fuzzy picture in your mind of the final product but then it slips away like a dream. IMG_3744.JPG IMG_3746.JPG IMG_3747.JPG IMG_3749.JPG IMG_3751.JPG

    I don't know why I get this perception but this building along with the other River City buildings somehow look like they're built sturdier than the average condo. I don't know if it has to do with all the exposed concrete, or what but they just seem solid. Also got that feeling when I viewed a few of the units. I could be completely wrong though. It's probably just me as these things are all built to the same code.

    I love how the colours of green roofs change with the seasons.

    This is most appealing...

    RC3-1.

    The black stripes are now exposed, as seen on the renders.

    RC3-2.

    RC3-3.

    Nice to see panels underneath too.


    RC3-4.

    In the RC4 staging area.

    RC3-5.

    RC3-6.

    RC3-7.

    Some of the covering pealing away to reveal white on this NE face.

    RC3-8.

    Got an email with final occupancy dates starting May 29, 2018. Later than I thought but what can you do.
