Autofocus wanted to highlight this apparently all-important pipe in the foreground...

Don't look down on the left...if you have vertigo.

This should be the last pour for phase 1. Maybe sometime in 2022.

Sorry to derail to the competition;
The new TD sign looks done as some testing occurred in late November.

Nothing too exciting yet. Just a static image and one missing light from yesterday.

There's something about this building that's just so, Toronto. I don't know if that makes any sense, it just fits into the city so immensely well while also being beautiful and unique
I guess that means it's good architecture. It creates and reaffirms a sense of identity. I have my criticisms but it fits in very well with the Financial District's iconic towers, such as the golden Royal Bank Plaza.

I think that it fits in BECAUSE it's beautiful and well designed and carefully built. Not totally sure it's "Toronto' but it is beautiful - and would be anywhere.

Why is there a single glass panel installed (?) in the staircase to the park? And why is it that panel space, of all the others you might think they would start with. Provided What I said was in any way true, the construction process often seems delightfully haphazard sometimes.

Purely a guess, but could it be related to the connection of the two sections of the bridge? I think the bridge came in two sections, and maybe as part of connecting them, they had to install the glass panels?

Or possibly because they are looking at a 'sample' and will order or accept the rest when it passes inspection?

Seem like their plan is to wait till the North tower is done (or at least past the park level) before opening the park. I thought there were plans for a partial opening. Maybe the lower foot traffic downtown changed that.
