It's a welcome change!!! Next on the agenda should be that ugly concrete block next to it.

I can imagine. It's an amazing spot. Just an odd spot for apartments. Some glass on the facade would be ok already.

The owners probably don't want to sell because the meagre compensation they get won't give them any ability to buy a newer unit at a nearby location.

Looks like a good investment on CR's behalf. The cladding is a great improvement!

This project is a recladding, so T/O isn't so relevant. The entire facade is being replaced much like Toronto's First Canadian Place.

This is not a new tower, but just a recladding of the exterior. Emporis lists it at 178m (48 floors) : http://www.emporis.com/building/120959?lng=3
