The first few floors of the existing building have already been cleared out by the demolition crews. - In another 4 or 5 months it should be toast.

Demolition of the existing office building is underway as a condo with a similar floor plate waits to rise from it ashes.

Sorry to see the height increase didn't quite get it to 500 feet!

Demolition is speeding along, I see!

I haven't been to Toronto since 2007 or 2008 (though I'd like to go back sometime soon). I just have a good eye.

What is happening at the Chaz? No updates since April 2012. They should be above ground by now.

As of a couple weeks ago it looked as though they were about to install the crane.

Above grade? not even close.

They are just about to pour the slab on grade, or so it looked like on Saturday. I'll take a look tonight and update the page.

Just curious... where does the name Chaz come from? Reminds me of Chaz Bono.

Probably a play on Chas., common in the old days as a short-form for Charles. This condo is on Charles St.
