    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.
