Spandrel is minimal once you get past the podium.
Columns are set back from the edge of the structure. All base building partitions are in centre of floor plate.

Awesome - keep it coming.
With all the hype about The One lately I had actually forgotten CIBC.

It's a little less than "half built" - 16 floors out of 66

Yes, but digging down and getting to ground level takes time, so even at 16 floors up, they are basically halfway through.

I walked by 88 Scott tonight, (204 m) probably wont be on the list much longer. Harbourplaza (238 m) is starting to look filled up with residents. We will have a few more sub 200 meter towers join the list at this rate.

A video for The One that looks like it was a rush job. Hopefully a more refined less cheesey one is made for the sales office opening. So much is wrong with it but there are a few nice skyline shots when the tracking holds up.

Doesn't seem to work here for some reason. try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_j7E2Zc6Fx8&t=47s

For Etobicoke that tower is amazing.

A little bit of Mississauga in the 416.

Hopefully that won't be as I keep calling it by mistake since it's French......"Ew-du Soliel"

It's looking like it's getting there, halfway sounds fairly accurate considering how fat the podium is. I wish they added some office space to that podium...though the design would've been a bit more awkward possibly. I gotta wonder how well they'll do that crown, it could look pretty sweet if done well.

It's a shame it wasn't curtain wall but the balcony treatment is really turing this project around. It may end up looking pretty sharp.

Only way to turn the project around would be to rip it down and start again
