I believe that is the plan for the hotel section, whereas the residential has an opening date past whichever quarter it is 2012.

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
Phased opening is perfectly possible. As the bottom floors are completed, that section can be unveiled even as workers work on the floors above. As long as that sector of elevators can function properly, I don't see any problems with this approach.

Definitely not Trump Tower Chicago quality. I figured with it's annoying corner crown feature it wouldn't make any top 10 lists for architecture, but it seems really small compared to the other skyscrapers around it. It may have some height but has no real presence. I always loved that classic look of the First Canada Place, Scotia Bank and the TD Center towers; now this there, I don't know. I think when this is finished it's going to lessen the classic Toronto downtown grouping for me.

You realize that it will be as taller (to tip of spire) than Scotia Plaza when finished? It's a very skinny building, but I wouldn't classify it as small.

Marvelous and out class. How people get these ideas and these kind of thinking that ordinary man remain silent and astonished. Great piece of art.

I don't count spires either. At 257 m to the roof, this will only be 18 m shorter than Scotia Plaza and 39 m taller than Bay-Adelaide.

It's tucked behind the giants next door so it's actually quite hard to see from many vantage points.
