I believe it's granite. Probably looks much better in person. A shame that sunlight can't hit more of it. The shadows do dull the look a bit.

yes, I 've noticed that too and from lakeside either, you almost don't see it.

perhaps once it is topped off, the little spike will be visible.

As much as I'd love to be able to see this building in the "postcard views" - the fact that it won't be seen really says something about the height and density present in Toronto (Both current, and what's yet to come). Toronto can only move forward and is doing so in great leaps and bounds. Such a building is proof.

I wonder what that post is...some sort of a spam or joke?

Shall we tolerate AltinB's ridiculous posts here?

If you log a complaint properly to the Mods,
then maybe something could be done.

Nice pictures! I can't decide if I'd like it better had they put the green glass symmetrically on each of those sides.
