    Cool video. You should try and get Mckimmie tower and the Cancer centre also. I’d like to see what the atrium at the Cancer Centre looks like from above.

    I think the building’s general design and articulation is okay. It it really could use a restaurant and patio as mentioned, but at the same time it’s easily doable if it comes down to it in the future. Renovating entrance windows and doors is fairly minor. Thoughts on Eau Claire are dead on...

    I don't know if snobbery is the right word, but much like any forum, there is always a bit of group think. I agree with you that not everything has to be perfect, bit at the same time sometimes you see a project and wonder what the architect was thinking. For me personally the towers are fine...

    Can't say I'm surprised about the NBA or NHL postponing. Putting 20,000 in one building for 3 hours is the perfect way to spread the virus. As for people working from home, the more people companies can get working from home, the better. Not everyone can of course, but the jobs where it's...

    From what I've heard BMP's issues were that they over extended themselves and had too many jobs on the go, and they lost some of the jobs, but are in better shape now that they don't have so much on their plate. I hope that's the case.

    Given how long it took the Windsor, you might be right. I have seen other sites where things move at snails pace, and then it really gets going.

    A week or so ago I thought the situation was something blown out of proportion by the media, and that it would be a repeat of the H1N1 situation, but this seems different. This feels like new territory.
