It's a shame that Bay Adelaide isn't visible from the CN Tower.

Off topic but is that facade work being done on FCP?

Bay-Adelaide may not be, but Trump, Shangri-La, the Ritz, RBC, AURA, 1 Bloor East, and the L Tower, will be.

I assumed that was a window washing crew on FCP.

This building looks so much fatter in the renders. The building does taper out, so perhaps, it will get fatter, the taller it gets.

Wonderful shots!

This area is going to look so much better in a few years with the Ritz popping up beside RBC, then the Ice Condo's with their office building and the York office building + Trump should be peeking in and will Shangri-La be seen in the photo as well? And of course the completed MLS and Telus towers.

Somehow I think it has very little impact on the skyline. It's not really noticeable. A large portion of it is hidden by Simcoe Place and it's a distance from the financial district.

It will provide for a some in-fill between the traditional CBD and the CN Tower when viewed from the lake. Beyond that, it's visual impact will mainly be from King Street looking south.
