Exactly. How to clean windows on a building with a weird shape is something that takes a bit of work and can even be forgotten about. The architects of Fountain Place in Dallas forgot to include window washing equipment in the design, and the oversight wasn't discovered until the building was already under construction.

A pile of thumbnails for those who have some time to kill.

Telus Sky has a pretty straight forward up/down design when you think of it. It's not Vancouver House or L Tower.

Telescopic boom crane is how it will work. This needs to be solved at the time of BP application as the city needs to know how it will be maintained, so I'm sure the building maintenance unit (BMU) is already well under construction.

Are there any plans to re-clad the building next door?

Hi,
Interesting Question? As the Tower Narrows near the Top, will It just B a Row of Ap/Condos on Each Side etc. Just Wondering.

Tnx,

The tower has stopped narrowing for a couple floors now, its just straight up to 60 now, thats part of the illusion.
I'm really excited for that part, it's going to look so cool!
