Some updates from the Toronto forum:

The tower is gradually filling up! It looks like Heenan Blaikie will take 4 1/2 floors, and Fasken seems to now be taking up the full 18th floor, as opposed to just half of it as on the last stacking plan. Also, there seems to be a "mystery tenant" taking up half of the 12th floor.

Good update M.Schwerdtner. I wonder if the installed glass there still has any plastic covering? Or is the final colour we will be seeing? If it is, it looks a lot darker than the renderings. Although I think it's a great colour for instilling a sense of calm.

Just wanted to show how massive this beast is. And we've still got a good 21 floors to go!

I hope it's the final colour and not a plastic covering. The smokey grey has a very rich lustre.

Wide shot:
Trump is going in between that small gap beside Scotia Plaza. It's going to be very crowded.

More glass. I have to say that it's quite sleek. Very decent.

I'm loving the glass, and the shape of this building is simple yet sexy.

The glass is sure going up quickly!!!
