I doubt this will be at street level till spring. Maybe by summer they'll have the podium done. I'm just thankful we've seen the last summer with this hole scarring the downtown.

Reported by Urban Toronto.

1 Bloor will be the first in North America to use the KONE Jumplift elevators.

"KONE has developed an advanced self-climbing elevator, the KONE JumpLift, which increases safety on the construction site, improves cost-efficiency and speeds up construction work."

A massive pour is expected in the coming weeks. Photos courtesy of UT.

You can have it if you like.... many of us keep wishing that it and the other '70's one across from it would disappear!

I've always liked it. The other tower in the picture is free for the taking though.
