Nah, I hope they use ultra-low iron glass similiar to what's been used at say 7 St.. Thomas.

I just hope it's not too transparent. We have too much of that in the downtown core! The CIBC stick out from a distance because of its deep blue glazed curtain wall .

I am hoping for the exact opposite - ultra transparency. The design of the tower will make it a good fit.

Curtain wall installation could still be a while, unfortunately. What I was told at the site (a while ago) was that because of the risk of damage from the adjoining construction work on the south-east residential building, the curtain wall contractor would not be starting on the office tower until the residential tower is sufficiently above grade to minimize the risk of damage to newly installed curtain wall.

Are we talking a few floors above ground level because it's going to be winter ! Don't the subs need some protection from winter elements to do their job indoors?

Hard to tell from the architectural plans but with the elevator core hugging the north side of the building, I wonder if they are planning windows so passengers get a view as they climb upwards. Based on the form work so far it doesn’t look like a solid wall so that gives me hope!

That would be sweet! I couldn't for the life of me find any elevation of that west facade, but i looking at the plans the cores run parallel to the direction that opening is facing. Not sure that the elevators themselves will have windows but at least each lobby could potentially have one, the image below is only from level 03 (if anyone finds the higher floors of the office tower or section from sheet Ax5-111 please let me know... spent way too long looking through the development application site lol)
