I've lurked on this site for a few years but never contributed or commented so today I thought I would change that and post some photos of this site. Let me know if of interest or not as they were not specifically taken for this site. I have quite a few taken between May 23 and August 2nd. I'll update exact date of photos in future having some technial issues currently. I have older ones and will take some new ones if others are interested.

Just took these photo's today, August 17th. If of little value/interest let me know and I won't post the photos. They move pretty quickly with it looks like 3 story pillars on the vertical install, then come the cross beams and floors ... and quickly onto another 3 stories. Cheers all.

Thanks! You have an excellent vantage point of the site - would be great if you can keep us updated as construction progresses!

A couple of new photos... one shows the work completed between first photo Aug 17th at around 13:00 and the second on Aug 20th around 16:00. In the second photo they workers are in the corner and the crane is lowering down a steel beam. Likely they will finish the front street portion of this East level tomorrow.

I wish they scrapped the UFO landings, those add no utility and look awful. I would love if this had inset balconies with green space and seating for people’s general enjoyment. Overall not my favourite office project built in the last 10 years, CIBC is the real gem. The height of this takes away CN tower views from Bay & King as well.

Dang. The UFO landings were supposed to be a secret. Now you've done it.

The UFO landings are very weird and they don't seem congruous with the shape of the building to me — there's something even borderline like disconcerting and weird about them like they're strange mouths or angry eyes. They're very odd. I do partially wish they weren't happening and that space/architectural expression was done in a different and more harmonious way, but they're also just so so weird that in some way I respect them and maybe will grow to like them over time haha. I kinda of don't even understand how strange shaped UFO alien docking bays got out of the design labs, let alone onto a major bank tower lol. It's certainly unique, and gives the building a strange personality that it might not have otherwise.
