here's a different kind of construction project. Grouse mountain is installing a 65m high wind turbine at the top. it will generate 2million KW of power (20% of the resorts needs).

each blade is 37.5m wide and weighs 12,000lbs. more info here; http://www.grousemountain.com/Summer...nd-turbine.asp

Very nice stuff happening in Victoria. I like!

The Montreal Concert Hall will also be a gem.

Look soon for a major expansion and renovation of Calgary's Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts designed by Bing Thom in the very near future.

AGA looks like a giant alien robot took a haggard shit, and by that I mean it looks pretty cool.

Some photos of Peninsular Halifax's fourth crane this year. According to sources on the Trillium's thread it will grow another 100 feet when its about half built to complete the 19 storey building. Its currently around 200 feet tall (photos by me);

If you look carefully, there's one balcony ceiling (South East corner; unit 2604) that looks "raw" compared to the others.


North East view.


North view. Working on the last 2 balcony ceilings.

enjoy... let me know if there's any special request on specific view.
