Glass going up along the inclined facade on Lower Water St.

I caught a quick glimpse of it this morning while driving along Lower Water. The subtle slope to the glass is really nice.

I'm slightly confused because I thought that part was supposed to be copper. Looking back at the site plan approval the elevation drawings label it as "PERFORATED COPPER PANELS IN FRONT OF SSG CURTAIN WALL SYSTEM W/ CLEAR VISION GLASS TYP."

So does the copper go in later, over top of the glass?

It's hard to tell from this photo, but does the facade follow the curve of the street?

I would say so; if you look closely at Jono's image, there appear to be structural attachments along the mullions of the curtain wall installed thus far. While not necessarily a precise match, their placement more or less corresponds to the clear/uncovered portions shown in the image below:

I looked at it closer and there are large brackets protruding from the glass above the first floor. I've not yet had a chance to go out to the end of the pier to see if the first bits of glass also have the brackets attached.

The gentle slope of the glass is very nice and combined with the other 2 slightly smaller glass protrusions the street wall for this building is going to be much nicer than I thought.

Thanks for all the photos... can't wait to see this in person!

Looking forward to seeing the "copper" cladding installed. That should really bring it around.

Good project so far, it will make a huge difference on the waterfront, I think.

The slanted face looks great in this image... I'll have to get downtown to see in person soon.

Thanks for the shots Jono.

I wonder how they're going to clean the glass behind the copper.

I was thinking the same thing.

Some pics from the waterside. No sign of brackets for the copper cladding on the outermost part of the glass, but it could be that it will be hung from the top?

They have a lot of the blueskin on now and brackets are up to support masonry. Hopefully we see some sandstone soon!

We wait in anxious anticipation of the appearance by Muntz Metal. Sounds like a hard-core band. :thrasher:
