Friday, November 13. Well - that was fast. Just 8 days since the last step up to the 31st Floor, forms on the west side of the office tower have started their migration up to the 32nd Floor.

Cycle times per floor over the past months since early May have been:

Date.................Floor.........Days
May 1................19................-
May 28..............20................27
June 12.............21................15
June 25.............22................13
July 10...............23................15
July 24...............24................14
August 10.........25................18 (Includes the August long holiday weekend)
August 21.........26................11
Sept. 3................27................13
Sept. 21..............28...............18 (Includes the Labour Day holiday long weekend)
October 9...........29...............18
October 23........30...............14 (Includes the Thanksgiving Day holiday long weekend)
November 5......31...............13
November 13....32................8

As a side note - it looks like our view of the main portion - observation galleries and restaurant levels - of the CN Tower will soon be disappearing from our view. Sad, but such is the price of progress.

I'm not sure the office portion of this project was to intended to be super shiny like that...

It wasn't. The point was that the execution of a very similar element was done MUCH MUCH better on the Lloyd's building. The quality gap is substantial.
I think you're comparing apples to oranges here. As the only claim you can really make is that there may have some influenced in design from Lloyd's in the stairwell...but not by much though. The rest of the building doesn't even look like the Lloyd's one, even by stretch.

With that said, quality should be addressed separately for this project. And there has been plenty of questions raised on that through out this thread, including from myself.

Outside of a few design cues, they're really not similar at all. Lloyds was a statement head office for a 300+ year old insurance institution, and cost between $650-700 (2020 rates) / ft. due to extreme customization. The Well is a speculative office building, designed to make money for its developers and asset managers (Allied and RioCan). I would be surprised if it's being constructed for more than $350-400 / ft.

There's very little similarity outside of the fact that they're both 'buildings'...
