"Muffin Lady with her finger on the pulse of downtown construction"

we should definitely get her flawless record on board here

I wonder how tall the current plan for RAC 3 is with the Concourse looking less likely to be torn down

Hopefully, they do get a revised taller tower which would make it over 200m plus have better access to College Park.

No it's real.... from the Ellis Don website:

EllisDon has been awarded the prestigious Bay Adelaide Centre office tower in downtown Toronto. The building is designed as a landmark signature tower which, with its distinctive rooftop silhouette, makes a unique and lasting architectural imprint on the Toronto skyline. The impressive 50-storey office tower contains over 1,525,000 square feet of rentable, Class A office space.

Bay-Adelaide can't be good for Trump; buy, buy, buy, and get spectacular views of the curtain walls of neighbouring office towers!
