We've crossed the 10% milestone to final height! 😯

Before anyone says anything, getting to 10% height is probably 50% or more of the effort required for this building. With the super-column structure, grand first floor, multiple high floor event spaces, couple of high-floor lobbies for the hotel and condo. All the while, they've been doing complicated interconnections between the super-columns.

So don't anyone go multiplying the time taken to get to 10% and say it's gonna take 10 times that to get to 100%. We've already had enough discussion on this subject!

Admittedly a small data sample, but the best they've done since reaching the hotel floors is a week to setup and pour walls, and a week to setup and pour a floor slab. At that rate we are looking at around three years to top out. And not accounting for any future strikes or global events . . .

I would guess they top out in 3 years... 2 weeks per floor x 74 floors = 3 years.

I say topped out summer 2025.

lower floors will be occupied by this time.

completion in 2026.

guessing that interior framing is first pieces of self climbing form work system for elevators... it will constantly climb and pour then they back fill the floor after?

It was exciting to watch them unload more steel this morning and how quickly they started installing them for the columns

So given that it's taken x number of years to get to this point, we should only have to wait 10x longer for...

The builder told me they are targeting an average of 14 days slab to slab... so 7 days would be a miracle

Too bad we don't have any progress pics for the doughnut hole. Seems a lot of blue framework has been installed and then covered up with two floors of plywood and the opening in the floor in last pic seems to be between the two elevator cores?

Could just be temporary so the workers have something to stand on while installing the lift for the elevator core.
