I Can't be too sure, but I think this building is currently upto it's 3rd or 4th floor above grade, as I can see it from my office now, level with some of the other buildings around it, and looking like it's going to be half the height of Galleria Ph1 in a couple of weeks...
I live just south of here and can just see the top of the new building over my neighbour to the north. It's good to see some density in the area.
I'm disappointed to see the semi-hijacking of this thread to talk about teh center 454 debate. But now that it's here I want to throw my vote on the pro 454 side. I've lived in the area for six years and not once have I had an issue. Maybe the people who live there should make the effort to get to know the "locals" rather than pick a public fight.
Looks like it's up to the 14th floor now, with only mechanical left to go... I can say, from where I can can see it during the day, I kinda wish they had built this thing 2-6 floors taller, as it would still blend nicely with the neighbourhood, and block sight lines of some not-so great buildings in Sandy Hill and Rideau...
Just drove by this for the first time in a few weeks. I know the bottom few floors were probably snapped up by investors, but wow, I can't imagine the noise and uninspiring views the north and east facing lower units must have. Those on the lower north side would perpetually have dismal natural light.
