I think @Benito is going to have the highest "Reaction Score" to "Messages" ratio of all time in Urbantoronto by the time this project is completed!

I swear each of his posts in this thread gets like 15 reactions of 😍 or 👍 coz of the amazing pics both from above and from below!

Benito is not just a great photographer, he's also very computer-savvy. He has an embedded algorithm that triples reaction scores on Mondays, Wednesdays and stat holidays.

I copied his algorithm into my profile code but got the reverse reaction I was hoping for (so just assume my score is actually double).

It appears we have a winning formula for success:
1. Delete UT account and create new one
2. Find popular thread, post epic photo or a few words that crowd likes to hear
3. Voila
4. Buy a camera or a very high-end smartphone such as the iPhone 12 Pro Max or the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra

On the note of the height of the ground/first floor (whatever u want to call it), given it's supposed to be an apple store I think it's safe to assume that there wont be 30ft ceilings but rather a second level as there is at most flagship apple locations.

5. Know someone with a view

There is a below-grade retail level; the second Apple Store level could very well be underground, a la 5th Avenue. Showroom at grade in a dramatic space; classroom space, boardroom, HomePod listening room and back-of-house downstairs.

There's much more to photography than having a nice camera. Subject matter and editing are infinitely more important, and it's sad how many people equate talent/opportunity to equipment

this site is not that big but the pics ive seen, it looks massive from the street view. probably because of the giant columns and all that steel/Metal.

Small and tall: Benito's first shot really reminds us of how small the tower footprint actually is relative to its height (some close-up renders makes it appear much bigger). This one will soar when complete.

Amazing pictures as always, @Benito

With all 4 "+" transfer pieces that have been installed, the next step would be to install the inner portion square of the tic-tac-toe. I see some of the segments have already been delivered and sitting just outside the perimeter of the building.

My pleasure guys, glad everyone enjoys the photos.
