This is the highest number of cranes I have seen on a local project. I guess they mean business.

I'm glad this is finally starting. However, I'm still disappointed in the updated designs. It looks like a hospital now, where the original renders would have added an incredibly unique, neo-modern architectural project to the cities.

I agree the initial design was far better in my opinion

The forest of cranes have been reduced to a singe one.
There's quite the progress on this, and it's looking rather good, all things considered.

Thanks for the updates! can't wait to see this one finished and used... really curious about the commercial units. If I recall correctly it has some interior retail in the promenade right?

Student move-ins delayed again, this time for TheHub in Waterloo

Quote:Residents of ICON, Columbia One and the K2 buildings all experienced move-in delays, and now so will tenants scheduled to move on Sept. 3 into Towers 7, 8 and 9 at TheHub on 130 Columbia St.


I've made a thread to talk about (more generically) the problem of missed September occupancy targets:
