While in the lower left of this image by UrbanToronto Forum contributor mburrrrr a pair of window washers hang from above while cleaning windows at Backstage on the Esplanade condos, something similar is happening about a half kilometre further west in Downtown Toronto at 160 Front West. At the top of that building, identified by the TD logo, the arm of the Building Maintenance Unit, extends down and to the right from its perch within the top of the tower. From it, a small platform hangs, likely with another pair of workers in it. Whether they are cleaning windows or repairing LEDs embedded on the panelling we don't know, but it's rather extraordinary to catch such similar work several hundred metres apart at the same time! In between the two, the north tower of CIBC SQUARE is under construction.
