The Portland Commons construction team has developed a community information website for the project: https://www.constructioninfoellisdonportlandcommons.com

Some renderings from the site:

That domain is, uh, quite a mouthful. (Also, most of those renders are of the old design and don't represent what's being built.)

What's that American flag and "we stand united" mural?

It's the old Nygard building at the corner of Niagara and Portland. It sold this year to NY Brand Studio, CEO is Joe Mimran.
They've recently painted over the flag mural - it's all black now.

The building is the former Toronto satellite head office / home away from home for Peter Nygard's Nygard corporation (the main head office was in Winnipeg). The building had been in Nygard's hands for around 30 years of so - could have been a bit less, not sure of the exact date Nygard acquired it.

Nygard had material business in the United States - the mural was done as a show of unity with the Americans in the aftermath of the Osama Bin Laden organized 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001.

As mentioned above, the wall has been repainted in the past few days - as can be seen in the more panoramic view of the Portland Commons project below.

For posterity sake - Peter Nygard is accused of sex trafficking and rape
