It is snowing quite lots here. I wonder if it might put a stall on the fast progress.

Great shots, Skymaster! Vancouver has a ton of buildings even though only a few rising over 140 metres.

^I'm pretty sure there is still at least the mechanical penthouse and the roof fins to add which could potentially add the equivalent of 2-3 storeys more in height. For example, look at the pic mr.x just posted. You can see what looks like rebar sticking out around the core that appears to extend up at least 2 storeys more and that picture was taken just last night.
