It's basically a giant truss.

While true, I'm sure we can agree that this is a completely different market than the typical condo/apt market. Student housing basically is paying a premium for lesser housing but hey, you're on campus.

Interesting photo this morning on the west camera. The regular feed must be down, or maybe someone bumped the camera and the angle is off.

That is a pretty tiny parapet on the roof of the Bell/MTS Building. I always envision parapets on the tops of taller buildings to be larger...

No because the window washing equipment has to hang over the edge of the roof and the little trucks that the equipment is attached to are squat and low to the roof for stability purposes. At least that’s how it is in Toronto. The old buildings that don’t have the track system for the window-washing units often have higher walls.

notices were taped to the doors on the skywalk level of the Cargill Bldg that the 6 month closure of the skywalk was to start on Aug 16. As they were still open today at lunch I am guessing the closure will start at 00:30 when the link closes for the night.

Access according to the notice will still be available thru ground level but you have to go down the stairs at the building at Fort and Graham and cross the street.

There are some steel pieces on the closed sidewalk. If you can carry it, you can take it.

I'm enjoying watching his thing go up. Pretty interesting steel work at the Graham Ave corner. Will try to snap a few photos on the bus tomorrow.

@MarwestGroup
Interior at #330main coming along nicely, and a forest of steel so thick you can’t see through it. Lots of progress these days!

^On the contrary, seems like they're getting a lot done on the inside. Clearly that's the focus now. IIRC GoodLife's lease is up May 31, 2019 – so they're probably rushing to make sure the space is ready in time for the move.

^^^I agree, also I would suspect they want to close in and button up the complete podium of the tower before winter sets in to keep all of the elements out. This way only the tower is exposed to the elements.

You think!

At this rate it should be ready for occupancy in 2026!

Anything with a lease is of utmost importance. Followed by weather related items. It would make sense to assume as you guys do.

I've been walking by daily and there's tons of work inside and out, just not "up", currently. That scaffolding midrise (lol) at Fort and graham went up fast too.

That's a big beam on the shear wall slab. Looks to be four storey's in height.

The BellMTS location also looks like it gets water in it too as I have seen a leak diverter ceiling tile running into a plastic push cart.
