Thank you for all your updates SekishikiMeikaiHa. It will be nice to see this one topped out so that they can finish the exterior at street level and remove the barricades (maybe by summer it will be occupied?).

Yeah. And the green colour is not flattering. Maybe they did it to match the detailing on the old facade, but I dunno...

I was so happy, because initially it was looking blue/clear.

The green is gross.

I'm liking the green, bit of contrast with Purdy's and 1801's blue. Green goes well with the brick as well. Just sayin.

I agree. I think it suits the rest of the brick exterior.

I also don't mind the green. I didn't like the bright "seafoam green" spandrels on the Trillium very much but these are a bit different.

I don't mind the green either, but I find it odd that RBC will be moving into a building that looks like it is one of TD's offices.

The green is just fine. This project seems to be turning out quite well so far....



This picture though makes me miss the old Morse's Tea lettering even more. What a travesty.....

Hopefully the city grows a set and stands up to the owner of the Morse tea building. Not holding out much hope..

When viewed in person the glass looks much nicer than the photos suggest.

the last that I heard the city can demand that the owner restore the sign, and if need be the city will do the restoring and then bill the owner; similar to unsightly buildings that need to be painted.

That would be sweet. I really hope justice is served.

This picture is from back in October but I thought it was a cool vantage point anyway...

I'm pretty sure it's not all the glass that makes it look green, but part of it is the steel panels behind the glass in-between the floors. Because other than those floors the glass is pretty see-through.
