After seeing Telus Sky in person for the first time yesterday I now have a new appreciation for it.

Nice shots from different than usual angles. The view from just off Stephen Ave is probably my favourite.

Telus Sky is such a cool building. Calgary is lucky to be getting it.

4. Eau du Soleil - Sky Tower (Toronto): 228.2m / 749ft
Snagged an Instagram photo from the user dhayden55, this photo is 4-7 days old....the right tower is the taller one as you can see:

Rebar work on first section of ground floor nearing completion. We could see concrete very soon, possibly by the weekend. It looks like it will be done in about 5-6 sections.

This video posted on urbantoronto explains this method. It explains it around 6:15 into the video.

SSP Insiders have it right. It's not top down construction. As for this cranky old troll, commonsense wins again. They are building a staging platform.

but a staging platform could also be top down construction. Because the "stage" will be a permanent part of the building, and they will continue to excavate under it even as they use it for porting materials and equipment.

That makes sense...or am i crazy?

SSP trolls (namely WhipperSnapper) also said this building would never be built and it's developer could only pull off mid rises. But hey, looks like he was wrong again. Even with facts provided you are in denial. You seem to know a lot about a building you said would never happen. Again, I will listen to UT insiders over an SSP troll any day.


LOL Jokes! Let's not let facts get in the way of your views WS.


Caltrane, the amount of rebar going into that section is proof it's not just for staging and that it's not a temporary piece of the puzzle. The first floor of this tower is going to be the ground floor. Again my troll WS is only saying the opposite of whatever I post. Had I said this is no longer top down construction, he be pointing out footprint of an Apple Store in the rebars layout. If I end up being wrong I will admit to it, it's just a fucking forum. Something WS has never done though numerous times he should have.

It does make sense. I don't think it's correct. My brief understanding of top down is the suspended floors serve as the bracing. They will still need to install tiebacks, rakers, etc. to keep the 6 storey high retaining wall beneath the staging platform from buckling.

I think it's safe to now say that I was referring to FrankieFlowerpot as our insider.

I also provided a UT link as confirmation if he hasn't proven himself as an insider.

An indirect update......but it'll really make this area more of a canyon…definitely more big city feeling

So I will admit I was wrong about that not being a temp foundation for a staging platform, however nobody is correct who says it's not top down, nor 100% standard pit construction. Both sides are correct here.

People can choose to be told by others on here what to think, or like me they can go directly to the source as I did.

Hi Andrew,

We have elements being built at grade along with simultaneous works being completed at the full excavation elevation. As a result, it is a form of hybrid top down construction, as we are working on multiple elevations of construction simultaneously. Its ground level form work for construction staging and site logistics on top of an active excavation pit. But, its not 100% top down construction. I trust this answers your question.

Sincerely,

Sam Mizrahi

And there it is, straight from the horses mouth, this will be a hybrid form of top down construction. That is unless people on here know something more then Sam does.

Why do you always do this? Mizrahi is a businessman who made his fortunes in dry cleaning. How is his resume definitive proof? I'm a real estate speculator/developer too. The obviously choice would have been to contact GFL. Regardless, Mizrahi made it abundantly clear this is not top down construction.

Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care what they're going to say
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway


Just to be abundantly clear once again ... this is not me ... this is what others in the know have posted on SSP
