It's certainly adding some much needed bravado to this part of the downtown.

Really, I thought that highest setback was about 170m.

Great image courtesy of the The Fusionist showing 11 cranes including that of 78 storey Aura (2nd tallest to your left - the 42 storey RCMI, in the foreground, looks taller).

Seems like a construction worker has fallen to his death at Aura in the last hour - according to reports on Twitter

http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2013...building.html#

Quote:
The Toronto fire department says a construction worker has died after plunging 55 floors off a downtown building.

Capt. Mike Strapko says the man was on the 70th floor of a building (at 388 Yonge Street) when he fell off it around noon, dropping 181 metres before landing on the 15th floor rooftop of an adjacent building.

Strapko says the man was found a distance of 24 metres away from the building he fell from.

Strapko says police and emergency officials are at the scene.

He says the Ministry of Labour has been called in to investigate.

I just heard on the news he was wearing a safety harness, but part of it broke, causing the fall.
