Are those glass panels at the bottom-left corner: http://www.nspower.ca/en/home/commun...rthcamera.aspx ?

I was out enjoying the lovely sun today and was pleasantly surprised to see cladding up! They have a good two floor section up. It's still pretty dirty since its been laying around on the site for a while now. But from what I can judge it looks really good. Although there was one panel that has been mounted, but is now smashed. I hope it was a construction accident and not some sort of vandalism.

This is a really fantastic project. Something interesting for the city. Looking forward to seeing the finished project, including how it really fits and connects this part of the boardwalk with new market/nscad area.

There is a webcam at this link: http://www.nspower.ca/en/home/commun...rthcamera.aspx

One thing that surprises me, is just how transparent the glass is; you can see right through the corner of the building where the glass is installed. Won't the building structure be very apparent with such transparent glass? I don't intend for this to sound critical of the building, it is just a question. It is less apparent in the photo above than on the webcam.

I think that is just because of the open wall on the harbour side letting all the light transmit through the pane. Once the building gets completely closed in i think the glass will appear more opaque, as the glass walls opposite will be reflecting much of the light.

Great find worldlyhaligonian! This must have been taken in the past couple of days.

I am looking forward to when all of the glass is installed. What a difference it will make.

Awesome! Thanks. I saw the referral come from here and wasn't sure what to expect when I looked.

I took that pictured on the 22nd (with a few more from downtown) and have a few more I can share.

Nice picture. So far it looks a little nicer than anticipated.

The whole seawall area is coming along. I kind of like how it has a different, more open feel compared to the downtown. It will really come together with 2-3 new buildings.

Hey tribeachpunk, nice photos...the cladding looks very sharp. I think there are a couple other folks from UER on here.

Thanks guys.

And I do recognize some users in common with UER. I can understand why
