I count 5 concrete levels in that pic. Would the Harbour Drive ground level count as the sixth?

The top of the precast structure which is already built should be the sixth parking level.
The renderings show the 6th level structure as being a bit different.
The office building should start one level above that.

Some photos and a video of the construction can be found here:

Also, an interesting article here:

The precast parking structure and the office building are being performed by two different contractors - the precast contractor is finished and now the office building contractor has begun the steel work. The sixth level of the parking garage appears in fact to be steel construction and I presume would be part of the second contractor's scope. The sixth parking level has actually started along the western edge of the structure (didn't stop for a picture of that... sorry).

A bit more of the vertical steel completed today actually (a couple of levels above the garage) - hope to see it move quickly from here.

Here's a recent photo of the 351 site; you can also see the Fortis site in the background between the two churches, for now. This is fairly recent but before the structure was completed and the steel work started for the office building.

Thanks for the update.
This is one of the most photogenic buildings I've seen while under construction, mainly because of the precast, but the steel looks good too.

Someone should make a new future rendering of the St. John's skyline.

A future rendering was created a little while back on the main projects thread, courtesy of Architype. Here is a link to the page (it's post #2349):

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...45930&page=118

This rendering also contains some proposed developments that have not been approved (and may never be), but it gives a good indication of the future skyline.

Alot of these are in the works still, Although I think a new rendering could be called for, Including Deacon Building, The new Steel hotel, All the developments on duckworth street too, might need to be zoomed in a bit in two different renderings on both sides of DT.

Here are the renderings that have been already done:


Also:


I think it would be nice if someone could do a renderinf of the west end of DT including 351 waterstreet and convention centre etc, but looing west instead of east.. this is way out of my photoshoping abilities

Here is the view from Water Street:







Here is the view from Harbour Drive, facing the East End:





And here if the view from Harbour Drive, facing the West End. The men on the roof called out, "Hey buddy! Make sure you gets a picture of the guys who's building it!"





And this will be the view many tenants of this building will enjoy - but, of course, much higher up and not impeded in any way:

Great photos, they are making good progress.
Only now (7th/8th floor) does it seem taller than the post office.

Exactly there, yes. That first look-out area above the switch-back road, just before you head into the neighbourhood.
