The open-able windows look really small!

gotta assume the openable windows, will only be features on the lower floors. As the building gets to the higher floors, they will be bye-bye. Just like on RBC.

Luxury Living: Sweet suites await you -- but not for long
1 October 2010
Canwest News Service

Toronto's prospective condo buyers are perched in the proverbial lap of luxury. Whether they're downsizing from a large home and seeking an equally extravagant dwelling or moving up to a bigger and better space, luxurious abodes are available in high-end developments throughout the city. "The condo market is fantastic. We've seen near-record highs in the market overall during the past year and there's great opportunity in the luxury market," says Ben Myers, executive vice-president of Urbanation, which tracks Toronto's high-rise condo market. Barry Lyon, president of N. Barry Lyon Consultants, a Toronto real estate consulting firm, also gives a nod to luxury developments. "Choice is abundant, and quality and design standards are excellent," Mr. Lyon says. "Luxury condos are all about ease of lifestyle and the ultimate in convenience." Impressive developments are under construction around the city and, while many units have sold, many lavish suites and penthouses are still available.

FOUR SEASONS

By Menkes Developments

Bay Street and Yorkville Avenue

The first urban private residence project by Four Seasons is attracting local and international buyers, lured by the renowned luxury hotel brand. The project, which comprises 204 suites in two towers, is 80% sold, with completion targeted for early 2012.

"Our buyers have complete trust in the Four Seasons brand. The Residences are the cream of the crop in Toronto's luxury market," says Menkes's vice-president of marketing, Mimi Ng.

The spectacular 9,038-square-foot, $30-million penthouse in the west tower is still available and offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for the right buyer. The suite will be tailored to the owner's specifications and will include separate quarters for live-in assistants. Two 3,843-sq.-ft. terrace suites starting at $10.3-million are also available in the west tower, as are smaller units starting at 1,265 sq. ft. and $1.9-million. All residents will enjoy luxurious private amenities plus the advantages of living above a five-star hotel.

Some pics from Saturday... Oct 2

My view towards the CN Tower...



Lifting up RCS panels. These are the first angled debris shields that ULMA has used...



A little closer to the building so you can see the actual size. They were about 40' tall and I picked it up from horizontal all by camera...



Coming down into position...



The view on my monitor. I'm so glad I came up with this camera on the boom idea...



This will be used to move material out from finished floors...



Finished view from the ground. Can you believe that took 11 hours for 8 panels?!?!?

Looks so different when you view it from here:



vs here:







The million dollar view vs the cheap seats, I guess we'll call it.

Doesn't seem to be much progress here.

These were taken by me today :

What's the projected height of the second building that seems to be connected to the Four Seasons?
