    You know, that's just what I want to think of when I consider architecture in Toronto - chicken nuggets.

    They spent most of the weekend adding a mast section to the blue crane. My dad captured this photo from his balcony on Saturday:

    Kind of interesting from a structural engineering perspective to note in @drum118's latest photos the varying thickness of the floor slabs thus far.

    The thickness of slab is due with transferring load since columns are moving to different locations. You can see the various columns changing locations as it moves from 4th floor to the current 8th floor under construction as the floor slab area decrease in size.

    It's also not one of the square cookie cutter buildings and will require extra form work as you decease the floor area to the final area per floor above it. It add extra cost that can be easy pass onto the buyers in appearance itself.

    It's funny that I can shoot something for one thing only to have other things pop out later since I wasn't looking for it or even aware of it in the first place. Someone spotted something on 88 Scott I shot earlier that I never noticed or aware of in the first place even after posting it.

    The east side will remain as is, with the other 3 sides changing to X floor where it will become standard for the rest of the floors.

    Glad to hear there's going to be a park, something very needed in this area.

    Sucks that they couldn't reach an agreement with the building next door to remove half of the U parking aisle, would have made for a much more usable space.

    I do hope that they rethink the bench seating which appears to be the same as in the revitalized Grange Park. I generally spend at least an hour every day sitting in a park but I have been defeated by the uncomfortable and bottom numbing seating at the Grange so I avoid it. Also, the backrests seem to be more on an elbowrest. On the other hand, the bench seating in Berczy Park and on the promenade along the east harbour are incredibly comfy and user friendly.
