Very striking. I wish the black did not bother me as much as it does.

That is exactly what they will be doing. Resuming work in March I believe.

^ Interesting that they're keeping their main branch at Portage and Main as opposed to moving it to TNS.

They seem to indicate that they want to maintain a retail presence at a prominent intersection - and what could become more prominent soon!

I wonder why the white bands stop for three floors near the top, along the small part facing south. Looks odd. Can see it in one of the photos on previous page. But looking real nice overall!

Looks finished. You can see it quite clearly in these photos.

The top floor (31) is mechanical and storage. No windows. Thus a different exterior look.

They are not talking about the top... about two thirds the way up the building on the south facing side there are three floors that have different panels... it looks like somebody screwed up...

Ya, it's about 8-10 floors from the top. The bottom picture shows it very well. And it's only on the narrow side facing south. And potentially on the even narrower side facing east where it abuts the other half of the building that is offset. Since they put the mullion caps(?) on, I would say it's permanent.

It's like the black bits to urban. I look at it everytime I drive by haha.

I'm not sure why they'd have a skinny piece of spandrel in that colour. I bet the glass maker sent them the wrong stuff. It won't take much to swap it out when they go around finishing the mullion cap.
