The skyline is filling in quite nicely!

By interchange42 from urbantoronto.ca :


Welcome to the patio behind the SkyLobby, and under the canopy. It looks surprisingly closed-in for a two-floor high space 22 storeys in the air... but then you notice that there is a line of skylights along the edge of the building, covered up for the time being until construction is finished above.

Back inside, we've climbed to the mezzanine level of the SkyLobby... but not on the sweeping staircase which, as you can see, is not there yet.

Look, back patio again, now from above...

and if we tilt up, we get a better look at the skylight which is to be uncovered upon completion.

image hosted on flickr



Here's a better idea of the local context for the back patio.

Aw heck, let's give you an actual view this time (what are we, monsters?), so, looking south from here, Ritz-Carltonians will have an excellent vista of the new Roundhouse Heritage Railway Museum.

Of course, you may also elect to look up from the balcony for this everyday view.

Very good! The skyline definitely looking a bit heftier as of late. MLS and Success seem to be making the biggest contribution, but Ritz definitely helps as well.

Prior posted by interchange from urbantoronto.ca :

Time for another photo update of the Ritz's upper reaches, with new details seen below:



Note that opaque panels are now being put in place on the slanted roof of the north fin. Also note the vertically ribbed cladding at the top of the zipper. I am not certain that it is as high now as it will eventually go, but I believe so as it hides the mechanical floor, and provides a parapet wall for the window washing equipment level... and I hope it stays that way as I think it looks quite good. I also hope the see-through portion of the north fin will remain too - it looks very cool from below!
