Really? I thought you're a Canadian native. Are you? Just living in Holland or are you just Dutch like us.

Sorry for offtopic btw, just curious.

I am not a Canadian native, but has become native to Dutch. I was living in Canada for a short while and carry a Canadian permanent residency status.

I carry Dutch citizenship. Not bad eh?

And honestly,I am proud to be Dutch but also a Canadian wherever I am and regardless. The good of both countries is represented in me and I try to be a godo ambassador of both nations.

Funny I say this, because although I was born in Iran, I don't feel in line with them at all. Total strangers to me!

Due to certain circumstances, I can apply for residency in any country and I 'll be given that too. Taller Better and my best friends know why!

Yes, we went off topic.

Hopefully, by the time I come back, I 'd be able to stay at Trump.

I sure shall not choose for Ritz Carlton Inn Toronto.

Taller than KPMG by roof height, taller than the Scotia Plaza (reddish tower) by spire, but shorter than First Canadian Place all around.

The pic is in the middle of the winter. Not smog, but likely light snow or ice crystals in the air.
Some pics I took last week:

How can this be opened this spring ?????

Please -- can someone who knows please tell us how this building can be opened this spring/summer as has been talked about in the papers - when the building has not even been topped out, or fully cladded etc. There's still a crane on top.

I thought there would be no occupancy till the cranes are gone.

Also, who can tell us why the construction appears to be so slow for the past while. The floor count is only in the 40's last time I saw it this month - nowhere near top-out.

If Fury sees these questions- he would know the answers - he's usually on the Supertall section - but if he sees this, I'd like to see his knowledge on this, but any knowledgeable Toronto engineer or architect could advise us.

Thank you
