Victoria Day long weekend at The Well.

Yesterday (Saturday, May 22), three of the tower cranes were working - the one on the office tower and two cranes on the residential towers. Today, the office tower crane is working again, as can be seen in Stefan's photo in the immediately prior post. The crane seems to have finished up for now, it was adding to the spine (track? not sure of the correct terminology) of the construction hoist. The construction hoist can now reach all the way to the top - and beyond - of the office tower. The newly added top section does seem to be a bit on the precarious side, only being connected to the section below, with no visible bracing to the building structure. Sure hope the person working on top has their fall restraints properly fastened.

Coming this Summer to The Well – The Vortex…

As the landmark glass Canopy, now connected to 4 of 7 buildings, expands through the open air, a new striking feature will be added.

Named the Vortex, a display made of circular hollow steel sections will be build up from the grand staircase and reach down from the glass roof as a free-standing funnel, only horizontally supported by the Canopy.

Designed for visual impact, Josef Gartner GmbH engineered and fabricated the Architectural Exposed Structural Steel (AESS) components of the Vortex.
In Germany, workers took extra care in fabricating, finishing, packing and preparing for shipment of these showcase elements.

The steel structure will be delivered in prefabricated ‘combs’ and ‘ladders’, with welded connections made at the workshop and bolted connection for assembly on site.

Meanwhile in Toronto, the AESS components will also get the royal treatment. With space on site so tight, Deltera freed up area to directly accept the 7 sea containers thus avoiding double-handling. Gartner Canada and the erection crew will ‘put on their white construction gloves” in providing additional care during unpacking, assembling and installing for the perfect fit.

They probably did it so you could see the vortex structure easily. The buildings are also rendered as white and we know they won't be.
That was the first thing came to my mind. Empahsis on vortex and not canopy, or that would of been too busy to see said vortex properly. Lost in the background noise if it where...
