it looks like they've painted the trusses white on-site. Compare with shots from:

this is sea-facing (next to main entrance) and used to be quite messy a while ago. they're also done with those red paving stones all around the building. it's starting to become accessible. ramp for car park decks is open and looks operational.

podium is getting tidier each week.

brand new footballs!!
and by the way, this pool is not always dirty, they clean it from to time, but not as frequently as they would after handover.

I've lived in Toronto for a while. Now that you say it's the best I start to realize it's so much better than I ever imagined. Thank you so much, pal!! And no, you don't disgrace yourself at all with such posts. Way to go.

One thing though, what does this have to do with The Torch?

It's made on borrowed time and dirty oil money. Don't be fooled. I came across some pictures... and felt the need to comment. Got a problem?

Get your head out of your hipster arse.
