Noticed this AM that the outdoor granite flooring connecting the moat to the York teamway is finally half complete.

still doesn't work for me :(

edit: this rogue chrome extension does the trick flawlessly

That was my bad put in the wrong URL. For future reference adding /amp after a Toronto Star URL will usually serve up the article.

“thestar.com/amp/news”

Don't know how much longer that’ll work though.

They have been working away at it quite a lot recently and are making good progress. They also now have supplies of granite tiles in place in the east Front Moat so they will, I assume be moving there once York is done.

Moat walk, earlier this afternoon:

What I find interesting about the walkway over the entrance doors here is that it isn't continuous north of the pillars, each section between them practically acting like a balcony. I did not anticipate that… It will be a bit tight walking between the pillars and the old exterior wall, but I assume they figure this will be a highly travelled path? It will make an interesting perch to grab photos of streams of people exiting or entering the station at rush hours in the future…

The guys above were washing the skylight windows with that machine you see sitting on the glass.

Below, in the dark below the bridge, is where frame are waiting for doors that will seal off the Front Street Moat from the elements. (Currently, the moat is open to the fresh air via the York Street Moat.)

Looking south beside York, you can see where this will be permanently open to the outside air on the right, beside the staircase.

Looking back north…

This batch peer into the south end of the GO Bay Concourse above, and the Bay Retail Concourse below, now accessible from the north end of the Blue Route, or the west end of the Bay hallway to platform 24 etc. accesses.

As you can see, the GO Bay Concourse is 8 steps higher than the Scotiabank Arena ground floor level.

I’m assuming the Bay concourse will open before the retail level am I right? (I’m sorry if this had been said before)

Yes and I bet it will not be too long as I think they want to relieve the crowding at stairs going in to TTC area
I went through there (TTC) today coming off the GO for the first time in months (pouring rain) and yeah, the crowding is an issue. I'd like to think you're right, but who knows what the priorities actually are...
