Im just comparing this to Harbour Plaza Residences going up across my balcony and that seems to be going up a floor a week at times lol.

Podium floors take much longer, as every floor is different. Every wood form for the walls have to be built specially for these lower floors, and it's not until you get higher in the building into the repetitive floors where you can use fly forms, which after being used for one floor, can be hauled out by the crane and flown up a level to do the whole thing again. That's pretty much how it happens for all the concrete projects we watch go up.

People in the neighbourhood fought tooth and nail to change the design and reduce the height of the original proposed point tower, to get this bulk, .....yikes:eek:

That area is high in demand and under-developed. NIMBYs won't be able to hold off developments for too long as university students are sort of the majority there already.
