...I guess somebody went for economies of scale and volume discount big time!!

What is up with the ugly ghetto kitchens? They make even the cheapest models in Toronto condo's look like high end.

And again Elite Residence has made a jump and has clearly surpassed Ocean Heights, the height looks like around 320m.

Apparently the core has already got all 8 tall floors that Imre's pic of the tower model at cityscape'07 shows, there's only the hollow crown above. If they stick to this design, the core should've topped out now! What do you think?

Yes, still the progress is visable almost weekly here, at least for Elite Residence:
cladding at lev 62 (2+ in 13 days), slab at lev 76 (+3) and core at lev 85 (+1... so there're more tall floors near the top than I'd expected).

Actually ET got three different main colors: concrete grey at the top,
paper white in the middle, and the final kind of orange-brown (that sometimes appears yellow in the sun) at the bottom.

That's because it's actually golden! Hard to tell on the pictures, but clear when you stand in front of it.

I see this sight everyday and it never ceases to amaize me how ridiculously small the ''older'' towers that we used to consider biggies, appears now next to the giants.

So there's plenty of time for the building the top and finishing the interior. I think they could do faster, if they'd have to. Probably there'll also be a visble slowdown after reaching the top floor like for their "classmates" Marina 101 and Infinity Tower (though the latter is special and even doesn't finish the final slabs).

In December, Elite Residences is still on the rise... slab could be at the transition to the taller upper floors now. And the core has gone up once again, more than I'd expected from the model.

Btw. here the outer walls look light golden... indeed better than the flashy orange, that it seemes to be sometimes.
