Typically we see a floor a week, but here we've seen a floor a month.

For a small footprint this project has been taking forever. I wouldn't be surprised if Hudson Walk II is actually ready for occupancy before this.

Is there a shortage of construction workers in Victoria?

In some regards, but I'm not sure if that's the case at this site.

Know it all.

I bet those workers think they have some privacy at the Big John on the top floor.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this project is moving quicker than Legato?

No underground parking, smaller footprint, better soil conditions...sure Legato has been slow coming, but it's still not really a fair comparison to make.

It really should have been. I guess the $$$ just weren't available for that. It's not like additional housing is not needed or that increased density at this site would have been an issue.

They removed the crane on Friday. Looks like it still has a long way to go though.

Except it's taking them so long to build it if it was twice as tall it would be 2020 for completion.

Plus they would need to switch out the toy crane.

Probably more like 2030.
