A reasonable amount of activity at The Well yesterday and today.

Saturday, March 21: Two cranes and the external construction hoists were active. One crane, one at the south-east residential tower, was handling bucket lifts for a concrete pour for much of the day, morning through the mid-afternoon timeframe. The office building south side tower crane was doing lifts all day and into the evening, finishing up at 7 PM - a ten hour day.

Sunday, March 22: Both external construction hoists are active - skeleton crew as it appears to take quite a while to off-load and stage the materials being lifted to the floor. The office building south side tower crane was already doing lifts by 9 AM - do not know exactly when it started. Lifts ended later in the morning possibly noon hour, and now it is being raised up to the next level. The concrete block to balance the crane's counterweights can be seen against the building in the background, a floor or so above the south west corner formwork.

Is that a sample piece of brick/precast on the column in the central spine there?
Wow great eye!
I'm very happy that the Wellington north facing buildings are all going to be bricked and goes so seamlessly with the street and the heritage of the neighbourhood, truly creating a Million dollar row downtown!

It's a shame they killed the diagonal concrete columns shown in the earlier renders/plans for the office tower. It would have added some dimension to what is ultimately a super flat and kind of boring facade along the 2nd/3rd/4th? floors. Fingers crossed the rental and condo towers shake it up with their curtain wall glazing selection.

They did, doesn't that come after?

Not referring to the cross bracing on the upper sections of the tower, but the diagonal concrete columns shown in earlier renders. Not sure when the podium design was finalized, but it definitely lost some interesting details that have ended up as flat curtain wall.

From the Globe, slightly different design but still with neat columns:
