Neat facts on Trump Toronto

Read the Article Here

http://www.travelvideo.tv/news/canad...anuary-31-2012



• Lifting the spire of the building (now Canada’s tallest residential structure) was the single largest lift in North America – if not the world? Weighing in at over 90 tons, it took over 12 hours to lift the spire in place on the roof of the hotel.



• The wall mosaic in the porte-cochere consists of 500,000 handmade, hand-cut tiles, which took a crew of 20 artists three months to make? Up close, the work entitled “A Small Part of Something Larger” by Canadian artist Stephen Andrews will disclose a textural pattern of porcelain, glass, stone and gold. From afar, the mosaic reveals an image of a stadium filled with cheering people.

What exactly are these connectors supposed to be for?
And does anyone else get the sense that this glass is slightly darker the rest of the cladding we've seen so far?












Some updates from the north side.

Even on the floorplans at the ltower website, the layouts show different curtain/window wall configurations for the north (top of pic) and east (right of pic) walls:

Interesting observation on L Tower...

Regarding the Curtainwall cladding...

They're coming in 2012, they haven't been announced yet, and I am not at liberty to reveal these projects.

Patience grasshopper.

________________________________
Edit:

Using the skyscraperpage database I found 30 towers for Toronto over 200 meters - proposed/UC/ Built.

So we only need 10 more projects in 2012 to hit 40 200 meter towers

OK Shifu, I hope you know what you're talking about. Looking at the database, I'm finding 23 buildings, omitting two smokestacks and CN.
