Just saying hello to the construction hoist driver at Tiffani II.

Had the chance to do a walk through in the very early stages of finishing and over all it's looking good. There have been some changes on "how" things are done and a few specification changes but overall I think it will end up being a better build than Tiffani I (as is usually the case with multi-towers). The big thing with this building is the views are great. Unlike downtown-core buildings you have an unobstructed view in all directions except toward Phase I. As long as you can choke down the Vanier address you have surprisingly easy access to downtown and reasonable access to the Queensway.

Why would one need to choke down or stomach a "Vanier address"?

Now, now Uhuniau. You obviously don't share his perception of Vanier as a residential area (neither do I), but we both know where he is coming from and that many people in Ottawa share his bias. Let it go and move on already.

What I would love to see are some photos of the view looking west from the upper floors of one of the towers - it has to be terrific.

No. I don't think it's right that Vanier and other "historically" (i.e., past three or four decades) down-at-the-heels areas get a bum rap.

And I'll admit to being guilty myself; I was flabbergasted at the changes that happened, almost overnight, it seemed, in the area just west of the O-Train tracks, between Carling and Gladstone.

The same sort of thing is happening in other "bad parts of town" like Hintonburg, Vanier, and Overbrook. It's just that Westboro sucked up all the press.

Well, Westboro sucks in so many ways, but that's the subject for a different thread!
