I can't figure out the orientation of the building, is the front on Bay (like the front in the render. If so the construction so far doesn't make sense. It looks like it fronts on the street along the north side of the site. Can someone clear this up for me please?

The front (of the render) is on the north side. Bay St. runs along the right side of the tower in the render.

It would be interesting to find out who purchases this place. 30 million is quite the price tag.

The funny thing about the four seasons is how Allen Menkes him self told me that he wouldent buy the pent him self but there he is selling it for 30 mill, he dident tell me who he sold it too but this guy is a shady character, he drives a Maserati has all the money in the world but treats his staff like shit, I heard people liked it allot better when his dad was around, not so stingy and cheap
