That sucks. I wonder how long until they get that sorted out? Does anyone know the details of the issue?

From when I asked people who worked there, their originally was one design to fuse the tiles together, but they ended up having trouble actually doing the work - the materials, temperature changes and manufacturing techniques were mentioned as the culprit. This all took place very late in construction and they had to go back to the drawing board for a solution.

If that was indeed the case, I am sure there were some construction and legal blame wrangling that also delayed the tiles, because some corners are complete while others haven't been installed in over a year.

Thats what I heard anways, take it with a grain of salt :)

This is why I still have this building marked as under construction on the East Village and National Music Centre wikipedia pages.

Looks like they have started putting the corner tile pieces up.

A few more pics, not much different from the ones from DazzlingDave, but a little more progress.
