Does anyone know if they are planning on covering the circular depressions, in order to start vertical construction at the same time as they dig deeper (ie, top down method)?
Also, doesn't look like there's room for another circular depression in that space, have they decided to create just 1 cistern?

It's the Enwave tanks

http://urbantoronto.ca/news/2018/02/enwave-partner-bring-sustainable-energy-well

Two 6-million-litre tanks will store temperature-controlled water fed by Enwave’s current Deep Lake Water Cooling system and its recently developed high-efficiency hot water network, able to service over 20 million square feet of commercial, retail and residential space at The Well and beyond. This will be the first low-carbon, resilient cooling and heating energy system in Toronto’s downtown west, and is set to provide long-term benefits both to the area and the City of Toronto, in its objective to reduce emissions and set exemplar standards for energy usage in cities around the world.

Anybody know how they're going to excavate these pits for the tanks? I imagine that the method will be different from the typical basement excavation.

We've received a pile of new renderings for The Well, most concentrating on the retail areas. Have fun…

The overall shot across Front Street assumes that the Rail Deck Park project, pictured in the foreground as a forest, has gone ahead.

Close-ups from the image above give a good look at the podiums along Front Street, and at some of the tower details:

This flagship retail location will be just west of Spadina at Front. To the right is the entrance to the multi-level sheltered sopping concourses:

Various views of the atrium and the arching skylight:

A view into the Market area:

…and finally, Restaurant Row along Wellington Street:

All of the images were cerated by Binyan Studios and the architectural team, and sent to us on behalf of Allied, RioCan, and Diamond Corp by Kim Graham and Associates. Thanks to everyone - we love getting these!

everytime they launch new renders for this project, the design for the residential towers change.

It's a beautiful project.

just to be clear -- are the shopping concourses sheltered but not climate controlled? I can't tell. If it is just sheltered from rain and snow, will this outdoor mall bring the crowds? I hope the lighting will be nice. I don't think we can count on natural light being able to give those dappled light scenes very often.

Will we get a traffic light or at least crosswalk from the raildeck park midblock into the mall? Maybe they can move re-purpose the yellow ped bridge to cross from the park into the new mall concourse.
