This building is very nice, but it is not completely symmetrical, so I am afraid it does not do it for me.

A transfer floor occurs at the transition from one set of typical floors to another different set of typical floors. If columns don't line up directly above one another, very deep girders need to be incorporated to transfer the loads above to nearby columns below. Transfer floors slow down the cycle of the concrete operations, and that slows down every other trade that is following in sequence. It's like someone slamming on their brakes in the fast lane of the expressway.

I appreciate your honesty. There are some buildings in TO that we would love to have too. I think you will feel better once your Trump Tower gets underway, sometime this summer. That's a nice building too.
