Looks nice.

I think this one is topped out now. Still might be a mechanical penthouse but that would be it.

Visible in the skyline, poking up from behind the Citadel:

I've wondered how much some of these buildings outside of downtown will become part of the traditional skyline views. It depends on the camera and viewing location. From some angles, particularly with a telephoto lens, buildings in the North End or South End look like part of downtown.

This might become much more noticeable with new 30+ storey buildings like Richmond Yards or Robie and Carleton. Aside from just being taller they are higher in elevation.

Coming in down Woodland or the 102, Monaghan Square and Point North are the first thing you see. The area around Robie and Young is going to be looking like the 'new downtown' in a decade or two with lots of new high-rises.

Here's a great shot from Dexel's Twitter Account. Also notable is the excavator beginning to break down the old Armco HQ and the progress on the Atlantica.

This area is going to become much busier. There's not only The George and the one across the street but the new hospital and the St. Pat's site plus all the other stuff farther down Quinpool or Robie. These projects must represent a considerable increase in density over what was there before.

Saw a notice on Dexels Instagram that the crane is due to be taken down next week.

This one is more prominent than I had expected!

BTW, first I've seen of that huge new signage on Quinpool Tower.
