These are great pics. From the camera's birds-eye-view makes it look so far from cresting ground level. Your's are much clearer and proves this is further along than I thought!

Seems to me like this project has been lagging a little…can't wait to see it rise on the skyline!

Id say its been pretty massive progress to be almost at street level. The site is enormous coupled with demo and a very deep subgrade.

I agree. I rode by this morning and was shocked by how quickly it's coming along. Now that it's at street level, I think it will really take off.

It might not actually appear to 'take off' until they finish with the massive podium. Once it's only the tower it will speed up. Regardless, once it's above ground we'll be able to see the progress easier than we can when its underground.

Not sure I recall a steel-framed highrise hotel in this city, not that I always pay attention.

Floor-to-floor heights and sound transmission tend to mean concrete for hotels and apartments.

This project has a massive team (or so it appears at the moment). I think we'll all be surprised.

Steel highrise hotels are just not an industry norm.

I know it's an afterthought, but the SLS hotel in The Mark is steel framed.
