Yeah, the nice thing about Uptown Saint John being built on a steep hill is that it exaggerates the buildings, creating an illusion that they're taller than they really are. Especially the new Irving HQ which is only a little over half as tall as the Brunswick Square tower but it's on the peak of the hill and that makes it look nearly as high from a lot of angles.

The reverse is true in some cases too, there are a few 6 to 8 storey-tall buildings on Water Street that look like they are the same height as two storey brownstones the next block up

The tower crane is coming down this weekend. Here's a neat photo I found on the CHSJ Twitter feed:

Update?

This is one of the most significant developments in Saint John in a long time - so I'm curious why no photo updates in the past 1.5 months? It must be nearly done by now.

Best I can do at the moment is a blurry far-away potato photo from the west side.
