      some windows that found a home:



      an elevator cab floor at home in the shaft and some rails to keep it in line while the rest gets built in place:

          • Only thing though is this was supposed to be finished by mid-September - kinda doubt that is gonna happen.

              let's just say that this 107 year old beauty queen still has the occasional surprise in store for her courtiers that needs to be dealt with...

              and that after 107 years a few weeks to get things done right isn't the end of the world.

                • Love the updates. How is the leasing front going, are there any confirmed tenants?

                    we have a conditional agreement in place for 1 floor that looks like it will expand to a second and continue to see increased interest as construction moves forward and we're almost closed in. main floor stone and storefront will be the next big visual from the exterior, having a finished lobby and an elevator the next big step for the interior.

                    how much space would you like us to hold for you?

                        Naturally a DIVA should be catered too and shouldn't be expected any less as far as my perspective can see it. This was never intended as a cookie cutter, and I'm happily willing to wait.

                        She is looking dynamite so far. I didnt realize the north had such a decent view as shown with Stantec in the background; I'm not quite sure if the additions helped but...

                        • Ken - if the construction is not going to wrap up by mid-September then when will it happen? Not looking for a hard date, but an estimated timeline.

                            we should have substantial completion for the base building late this month or early next. depending on weather, there may be the odd seasonal deficiency that will have to wait until next spring but nothing that will preclude tenant work or tenant occupancy following completion of that work. main floor storefront should start to go in by the end if this week and then we can finish off the lobby...

                                if the devil is in the details, this is going to be very devilish building when we're done.
