the lower you go the faster everything gets moving...My guess is yes with a maybe. Could reach probably in December if anything slows down. I believe they're ahead of schedule anyway.

Cladding on the podium is coming along quite well.

I walked by this place last week -- the recladding enclosure has finally "landed" on the top of the lobby setback (podium). I imagine they'll start dismantling it shortly, and are using traditional scaffolding from the street to finish off the remainder of the bottom parts.

I agree 100% I was in Toronto about a week ago and I must say, this is a HUGE improvement! It's a much cleaner look!

I'm not sure if they met any LEEDS requirements in order to get a badge, but I'm sure it's a bit better. The windows are still the same that being said. Across the street the TD Towers are current under reno to receive a LEEDS: Gold certification.

The podium paleness does reminds me a lot of Costco store.

I agree that the podium looks rather tacky now while the tower is much better than before.
