According to a client who's an EY partner, the move-in date for them is May. So lots of interior work still left to do.
 
It's strange that the public realm on the street fails to match the grandeur of the built form in the Financial District. Even Bay Street itself has a rather ugly public realm overall, with rusty utility poles, overhead wires, concrete sidewalks along many blocks and generic street lights. Some ornamental street lights and buried overhead wires would go a long way towards improving the public realm.
Yep. I'd say that, from a strictly aesthetic urbanist perspective, our public realm is Toronto's #1 weakness.

My number one annoyance is the rusting hydro poles. I hardly see them in other cities. In Toronto they are everywhere.
 
Not just you. That bit was a bit old. This, however, is from just ten minutes ago:
