Ritz has, as a matter of fact, reached ground level.

Nice crisp pics, M.Schwerdtner. Are you visiting Toronto for vacation?


The CN Tower is a great vantage point for construction updates.

according to yesterday's paper the podium should be finished soon and they expect to be working on the 22nd floor by November.

The podium is the trickiest and most complicated part of the entire tower. It houses a large open hall which requires very specific engineering requirements because of the tower which rests above it.

Once the podium is completed, the tower will begin to rise at a quicker pace.

Possibly the best podium going up. It's going to look very swanky.
