Kudos to RBC and Cadillac-Fairview for such a fine building! A wonderful addition to our skyline, both day and night!

[Revelstoke, BC] Revelstoke Dam Turbine 5 construction

BC HYDRO is installing a fifth turbine in the 1,700MW Revelstoke Dam in BC's Kootenay region. The dam was built to hold six turbines but was made operational with only four. Demand now warrants a fifth turbine and it is currently being installed. I don't know the exact capacity of the new turbine but I believe it is somewhere between 425MW and 500MW, which would bring the dam's total generating capacity up to somewhere between 2,125MW and 2,200MW. The sixth turbine would potentially bring the dam up to 2,700MW. BC Hydro's current generating capacity is 11,000 MW, more than 80% of which is produced by the utility's 30 hydoelectric power stations.

^Hmm, the site looks relatively flat. I expected construction on some sort of slope/hill based on the renderings.

The west side of London on the Esplanade is rather "meh"

I hate the glass & mullion design on the AGA. On the other hand, the ribbon is look pretty good and I love the zinc(ish ... could also be some stone) cladding

The south tip of the roof element has a new white frame. Hopefully this will become another lantern?

Here are some pictures of the screen in use earlier this evening during the Leafs v Bruins game. It seemed to be live. They even had some bleachers set up in the square for people to sit and watch!
