I hope that coming out of its OMB hearing a few days ago, the 400 Front West proposal (immediately east of Clarence Square) will still tie into the design of The Well and that the design teams have remained in communication.
Well - one of the architects involved in The Well is also doing 400FW - so maybe.

Who would that be? I am only aware of HPA and aA as design architects, with Claude Cormier and PUBLIC WORK involved, respectively. Is there an architect of record or a firm doing working drawings that is working between them?

aA are working on the 3 residential towers fronting onto Front IIRC

HPA are doing the office tower and Adamson are the executive architects. There's another architect for the north residential towers and a final one for the retail component.

Edit : and CCA as landscape

February 3 - some photos of the demolition activities now underway - Green Pro on the job. A number of workers are present in different areas of the site. Some comments:

1. Green Pro Demolition has signage up in a number of locations - here is one on Wellington Street, behind the Globe and Mail print shop building

2. Looks like Asbestos abatement is going to be required before at least some of the old Globe building comes down - this trailer is for worker clean up and decontamination after a shift. Unfortunately, did not capture the door at the end of the trailer which had signage to the effect Clean Worker Exit Only (in other words, if you are coming off shift with your work clothes on USE THE OTHER DOOR).

3. Victoria building - last occupants have now moved out, and the building is fenced off for demolition

4. Demolition equipment - looks very brand new, like this is its first job

5. Another view of the demolition equipment - the unit on the right is being started (operator visible in the cab, with his back turned), about to to back to Wellington Street, to pick up its demolition claw attachment from the float truck which is waiting, blocking the eastbound lane (no photo of the float truck).

6. Interior demolition of the former Spin Master building top floor actively underway - tried to catch a load of debris coming down as it was being dumped - but my timing just was not good enough.

GFL is on major expansion mode in Ontario right now, as you can see they recently bought up pro-green. wouldn't be surprised if these machines are new because of their aggressive expansion.

Was going say that they are really expanding out of garbage collections and into other fields recently..

Also, I didn't realize how close to Rogers Centre this project is..

The tracks on the right one do look worn in. Beats me how long that takes on a new machine.
