Huh, I biked past some people with a quad-copter recently. I guess this was what they were doing.

Very sad, when I biked past the site tonight I seen a police van and a ctv van I knew something was wrong. This is the second death at this construction site and there was also a serious injury here.

I'm actually quite excited for the streetscape along Father David Bauer. I think having mixed use in the office building followed by the walkups in the apartment building will provide some decent street life.

Are the walkups still supposed to be live/work lofts, or are they just apartments now?

Last I was in to the sales centre, they were still being marketed as live/work spaces.

The staff was also insistent that there would be no condominium units for purchase in any of the buildings, everything was going to be rentals. This surprised me given what we saw with the original site plan.

I will also add that even though I have been critical of the development in the past, it really is growing on me now that we are seeing some completed buildings.
