Wow, it's out of the ground! Fantastic.

Thanks for the update pics guys.

The Olympic pause will push their schedule tighter. Kimike over at The Georgia said they would have to stop construction truck deliveries also. Not much room on this site to stock pile materials either, construction will be halted.

Can't believe they're already working on the 6th floor.

Taken over the fence around front.


A few from the alley behind.








And a few of the facades of the old buildings


Anyone know when that part of the old facade was broken?


Sorry for grainy pics, my camera and low light do not get along well.

Doesn't look like much has changed in the last week, but nicer weather for photos today:

Talisker, thanks for the photos.

Glad to see the progress and the Bosa logo out front.

Thanks YF!
Work seems to have taken over my life here lately, but I still follow all of you guy's postings. Will be in Toronto this week for a visit, so won't be posting much.

Hey, the developer must have bought the air rights over that small heritage building next to Jameson House. They are building right OVER it!

You mean the two buildings at the bottom right? they're just the facades now, nothing behind but JH itself.

Really? Then what was suspended in that steel cage all those months? (/s)

Actually you're only partially right. It looks like the building furthest from the base of Jameson was completely saved and only the facade was saved on the other building.

Yeah the second one there is at least partially complete still though it looks fairly hollowed out overall, while the one closest is almost gone. Pretty awesome job keeping the second one suspended over that pit for the last year.

This is fairly flying up now, with more floors than the georgia. The shape of the building is now really starting to show:

They should start the semicircular shaped floor edges now above this height.

I prefer curves!

Great update Talisker, thanks!
