We recently presented a two-part report (Part 1 here, Part 2 here) showcasing the recently topped-off L-Tower. Arguably the most unique design to grace our skyline in decades, the 58-storey Daniel Libeskind-designed condominium’s construction has been well documented by UrbanToronto Forum members, and most thoroughly by our very own celebrity crane operator, Rob MacFarlane.
Above is what it looked like when we visited, but photos captured earlier today by Rob (known on our Forum as SkyJacked) show the now fully exposed roof feature, devoid of RCS (rail climbing system) protection panels.
The revelation of the unmistakeable peaked roofline was a surprise to many of our readers, as it was not highly visible in any of the market renderings released to date. Now that all of the RCS panels have been removed, the pronounced slope gracing the top of the tower is sure to attract attention from outside of the development circle as it becomes a symbol of our skyline for years to come.
We are certainly glad we got to tour the L-Tower when we did: we may not have been able to scramble all the way to the top had it been a week later. Thanks again to the guys at Dominus Construction Group for touring us about!
