I've been waiting for this project for ages, it seems. The commuters on the Gardiner will be in for a real treat watching this project rise.

Is it true that the 2nd tall tower will be getting a few more floors than originally planned?

Here's my post from Jan. 21 in the Toronto section.

Parade 2 Tower (bldg 'S') = 44s / 127.4 m (+ 2s mechanicals = 46s)
Parade 2 Midrise (bldg 'T') = 22s / 62.25 m

The planner further clarified that the height quoted in storeys excludes the 2 level mechanical penthouse, whereas the height in metres is measured to the the top of the mechanical roof
So Parade 2 bldg 'S' floor count has increased from 39 to 44 or 46, if mechanicals are included.

Thanks. I thought I remembered someone posted information on that, but couldn't find where. Hopefully, the mod can change the title.

What are those two art installations supposed to be? One looks like a bunch of resistors where as the other looks like a couch lol. Not exactly my cup of tea but it is good to see that an effort is being made to make the area a bit more engaging.

The first ones are fishing bobs that act as fountains, the second are just benches.

Nice. Good idea to make a bridge between the 2 towers.
