What's with the east front doors (@ Bay) being blocked off with orange tarps. I assumed this was put there (about 4-5 months ago) to allow them to repair/replace the older doors (as they did with the centre doors) but it seems to be VERY slow. Possibly they have taken them off and sent them somewhere to be refurbished? (I assume the west doors - to UPX - will be done next (and last).

I think that might be a question for the Union Station thread. But with most things Union, there’s always repairs that should take a couple weeks, turning into a few months.

Yes, quite right. I was obviously inspired by the photo!

They finally painted over the graffiti! Or most of it.
After months and months and months of my failed predictions, I think this corner will be done “soon”.

It looks like they are planning for a spring opening. No rush to open the park for the winter now. Is the rendered skating rink still in the plans or is that CBIC competing with TD Union Station for the temporary pop up skating market?

On to Phase 2
It’s official. The view of the CN Tower will be blocked from the nose cone units of 25 The Esplanade.

Cranes 3,4&5. Cranes 1&2 coming to a neighborhood near you soon.

The east side excavation has appeared to temporarily or permanently end from Yonge street. Maybe they couldn’t continue to block the traffic with the excavator and trucks impinging on the southbound lanes.

While on the west side, it will be interesting to watch the excavation or mining under the electrical lines passing through the property, which are now incased in concrete at grade. Sounds like the engineering/excavation of the remaining earth in this section could be on the taxpayer‘s dime or some sort of concession based on this article. Or my take on it.
