can they dig when the ground is frozen in winter?
Question 1&2: Apart from having to advance the permit approvals, shoring and excavating the other two buildings on a site this large would probably cost a bit north of 10 million dollars. This cost has to be carried with interest until end of project. From a financial perspective cost put into a site without corporate commitment to fully build is a liability. Excavated sites also require maintenance, ie de-watering, inspection and security. Question 3: Tie backing is not required when another foundation borders the worksite. There should not be any lateral pressure or force if foundations are the same depth.I am a little confused. Why didn't they dig a single foundation for all the buildings?
Why are they digging piece meal foundations?
And they dig the foundations, wont the tie back interfere with other foundations?
Am I missing something here?
This is Pinnacle‘s atonement for the glass they put up across the street at The Pinnacle Centre. This is also is what 1 Yorkville should’ve been!Do you see the mirrored reflection coming off those windows in the photos up above! This building doesn't have that cheap blue green look like those condos around it. It's more like the LBCO and CIBC Tower and will stand out from a distance just the same ! COOL ! !
Not sure about the sky tower but this will never stand out as much as the CIBC twins. I do agree with you that it's not a cheap ugly tower.
