The top third really saved this building. Looks great.

Awesome building, really good lightning on top. Fits perfectly in the skyline.

Toronto: Canada's Chicago (or vice versa).

This one is really a "game changer" in terms of the overall Toronto skyline

I've always liked this photo of AURA taken from Yorkville. That's 5ive Condo under construction on the left.

Toronto is so amazing, the only big 3 skyline of North America I haven't seen.

I remember passing by this condo back in 2012 and I took the picture below.
there was a sign showing back then "Canada's tallest residential condominium, SOLD OUT!"
I don't know if this is still true.

It's still true. There are 3 Toronto proposals that would bump AURA to 4th tallest residential if they get built as intended. Mirvish-Gehry West is 304m, One Yonge is 293m, and Mirvish-Gehry East is 274m.

It looks like (judging from the lights) that some of the apartments are already occupied? Is this building fully in service and completed?

The retail in the podium opened when they still had 30-40 floors still to build. That seems to be a common scenario with the taller buildings, especially if there's retail at the base. They're likely still working on upper floor interiors.
