Thanks for keeping us abreast of the construction progress. Given the large footprint of the site, how long does it take to complete each level (2-3 months for the underground level and a month for each floor in the main tower) ? Curious to see how the ramp is taking shape to the parking garage on the east side.
Underground and the first few levels above ground always take longest to build as they are normally not standard. Once they reach standard floors things usually move quite fast as they can reuse the formwork. Of course the speed will depend on how many workers they have and the size but the CIBC site is quite small and they seem keen to get it finished and bring in rent. I would suspect they will build a standard floor in a week or 10 days but I guess we will see. (Unlike residential construction, there are often quite major late penalties for commercial so ...)

The logo and word mark are way too small for me. I can barely read it even from a couple of blocks away. Same for Two Bloor West. I don't have this issue with any other corporate logo on the skyline.
I doubt it's viewable from St. Catharine's either!

Two new steel supports installed! How exciting.
New CIBC sign being installed on the east side of phase 1 this morning.
Pictures from last night and this morning.

Possible new crane base prep at the east edge under the stop light? One more crane going somewhere here.

The new logo is an improvement, but as others have mentioned, it's disproportionally small on this tower.

To me it reads more like CIBCO or CIB Co.
