A few new photos from today. Second level (from the bottom) parking slab has been poured.

Workers are now at street level on the Besserer side of the building.

Forms are being set up for the second floor but it seems to be a long process. I'm guessing it's because this is the floor where the split-level slab disappears and all becomes one.

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...

They just started laying out the forms for the 6th floor slab today. Looks like they are finally high enough to clear all hydro wires and are switching to flying forms to speed things up.

looking at the progress for this building I must say that Richcraft is the fastest developer in Ottawa (specially comparing with Broccolini and its 22 Eddy )

It's now at the same height and floor count as Galleria 1, and the forms are going up for the next floor as of this afternoon...

The next floor is almost done...I think that leaves 1 more to go until it's almost topped out...

Good to see some density

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.

Agreed, though haven't heard much at all about the issue since that flurry of activity a while back. Not sure what the outcome was.

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.

To each his/her own!
