Fascinating photos Anthony, every time I see construction closeups I'm always taken by surprise with the building's massive scale. Based on the quality of the glass and cladding I hope they get the height increase. This one deserves to standout on the skyline.
looks very solid - I imagine this is being built with the intent of giving it a lifespan of several hundred years. The CN tower was built to last 300 years, I would guess this is being built for the next 150-200 years
I remember hearing/reading a quote from Sam Mizrahi saying this building is engineered (twice?) as strong as your standard tower. For what that's worth. We'll likely see the structure lighten up a bit as we move up, but yes there is an impressive amount of material being built into this.
Looks like we might get all the walls and columns on this floor poured at once. I think with that much rebar sectioning the forming off vertically would be a fairly labour intensive activity. Looking forward to the pour.
