    A friend posted a video today of the atrium and said they're adding floor space on six floors between towers??

    Her exact words were: "Wow. This scaffolding in the Scotia Place foyer is an epic feat of engineering. It's supported from the lower level food court, the main floor, the second floor and the third floor. Apparently they're adding six more stories between the two towers."

    Any info on this?

    EDIT: Never mind. She followed up that her supposition was based on nothing but her trying to figure out what all the scaffolding was for. Dur dur dur.

    Better than expected. I liked the gold but this is a good refresh. Can't wait for it to be completed along with the podium reconfiguration.

    Is the exterior granite being replaced?

    ^ Although the image quality isn't very good, Greatest X's attachment in post #44 of this thread suggests to me that the granite is indeed being replaced.

    Edit: tried to imbed Graetest X's attachment in this post but couldn't get it to work, so deleted it.

    Only at the entrances. Everything else remains the same if I remember correctly from EDC.

    The reason I ask is the existing granite does not look particularly nice with the new glazing...and now it seems some stays and some goes. Yikes!!

    Edit: After a quick look at post 44 - I will withhold my criticism and hope for the best with the impact at the entrances.

    I will miss the gold cladding but that's looking good

    The new cladding looks much better than the gold. For some reason I've never liked gold on any office tower.

    Are they going to do anything with the mechanical blocks on top or will they stay the same?

    My problem with gold cladding as we saw it here in Edmonton was that it was never variegated; solid gold on both Scotia and more egregiously Energy Square. Scotia had the two towers that helped to break things up via reflected shadow and light, but that solid cube on 106? Blah.

    Makes one wonder why the effect isn't used? Even a random "crossword puzzle" style of pattern would be unusual and interesting, and can't be that much more expensive than a uniform finish, can it?

    - because that is aesthetically risky.

    I personally would love it; but look how people on this forum have welcomed the Chateau Lacombe reclad.

    I wouldn't want an entire downtown of striped or crossword gridded or other sorts of buildings. But one or two her and there adds variety. I'm thinking that Scotia Place is going to blend in a lot more than when it had the gold.

    Dark blue caps for Scotia. I like the look.

    Good question. I was wondering about that myself.

    I think those mechanical blocks form part of the building envelope and should match. I do recall when that there was a model of the original towers in gold and they were supposed also be in gold (at least based on the model). They ended up using those ugly gray panels and it looks like they do not plan to change them from what I can see. That is the most disappointing thing on this reclad so far.

    I'm pretty sure those things will be enveloped to match the rest of the building and appear to be extra storeys on top. If you know what I mean.

    One can hope that would happen but I still don't think it will. However, would be pleased to be proven wrong.

    Not a fan of the dark blue caps. It makes the building look “boxy” and shorter. If they don’t clad the mechanical PH it’s going to look even cheaper.

    Agreed. My main issue with this reclad is that the building just doesn't stand out anymore. Whether one liked the gold or not, it at least gave some separation and was distinct. Wish they'd put a spire or add a slanted top. That would make it much more noticeable. Won't happen though.

    Don't like the blue caps, at least from the picture.
