Okay, here we go, back in to the tower...
There was a fair bit of water on the floor - rain had just ended.
Here are Joe, Goran, and Ed, taking in the view from the 14th floor. No windows this high up yet.
Ed grabs a shot...
...something like this, looking down at the site of Tower 2:
Over on the south side, there's this - the loading platform - hanging out over the edge.
You see these at most highrise construction sites. For those with any amount of acrophobia (me, Ed) the idea of stepping out on to one is somewhat daunting.
The platforms are held down by all these posts that press against the floor above.
Feeling safer, it was time to venture out:
Not a bad view, huh? Back inside, and down on the 11th floor, we got a look at the shaft where the crane had once been:
Look up, and you can see the bottom of the crane attached to the 14th floor slab:
Look down, and you can see down as far as the 4th foor where rebar has gone in prior to the hole being filled with concrete:
You might have noticed that on the 11th floor, the windows are in:
Close up, you can see the fins that are attached to the south side.
Here's a fin, waiting for its day in the sun. The fins will also be installed on the tower's north facade.
If that was a fin, this is a wing:
... and still focused on the windows, here is one of the operable ones. They're pretty big actually, over a foot high.
This view is to the northwest, past the Regency across Bay Street:
And this view will someday feature tower 2:
To finish our tour, we head down here tomorrow, into the podium:
