caltrane74's shot there does show it in a good light. I do think that the closer to completion the building gets the more coherent it becomes--so long as we ignore the west view, which makes it look like a monstrosity.

describing Aura in terms that are more suitable to the male member in hardcore pornography is not going to help matters.

He can't help it. You'll find him on every high-rise thread, getting his pants wet and raving about the skyline.

huge, massive, giant, mediocre, glass, spandrel, eye sore of Toronto, etc.

Where the hell did that come from?

From a couple of days ago

those definitely look like 3 concrete columns going at the top in this pic. I'm curious as to what they'll do. Perhaps they're building up the mechanical bunker to it's highest point on the south side in concrete and sloping it down with steel columns on the way down?

From what I can remember most of the curved crown will just be acting as a screen/parapet.

I think there's mechanical and such yet to go, 4-6 levels?

I really appreciate your updates on this and all other projects, Caltrane. What'd be cool is if the all the pictures from this location were timelapsed once construction is complete!

I should be able to do that... some of the aspect ratios on my shots are portrait and some are landscape, but I think it's doable.

Judging by the photos posted just now, you may finally be wrong about something!!!
