Any more progress with window installation? If any one could take a pic of the new north section would be curious to see the progress.

I walked by yesterday, but didn't take any pictures unfortunately. It looked like the majority of the windows on the courtyard facing side of the old building had been installed, with some of the black frames in place on the outside along Johnson too.

No windows in the new south building yet, but there are steel frames that I believe the windows and black frames get attached to.

The annex to the old building looks to be the least finished from what I could tell. No steel frames for windows, no tarps to keep the interior dry, etc.

I'll see if I can take some pictures this weekend if no one else has posted any by then.

Whoops, I meant Cook not Johnson.

Nice to see some progress but they have a LOT of work to do still. Even if the windows are installed by the new year looking at at least 6 months to build out 100+ units

At the beginning of October the developers told me that occupancy would not be before March or April if they started getting regular delivery of framing and glazing (the glazing subcontractor was promising bi-weekly deliveries and installation of glazing) and given how little work has been done in the last month and a half, I would expect that estimation is already out the window. Half of the windows already installed on the courtyard side were installed in the first week of November. The remaining were installed in the last week. This corresponds to the bi-weekly deliveries that the developers spoke of. No work in installing the glazing appears to have been done in the intervening week. Looking at the percent of the glazing delivered and installed in these two bi-weekly deliveries (about one eighth of the total window surface was installed in each of these deliveries), and extrapolating the time required to install the glazing for the full building, there would be at least another 6 weeks of actual work to complete the rest if they have the framing and glazing readily available. If there is one week of idle time between deliveries, this means 11 weeks until the full glazing is completed. Then once the glazing fully encloses the building they can do the interiors which will likely require another month per floor.

I’ll be interesting to see how this all comes together. The Johnson Street side looks like a well built apartment building from the late 1970s... hopefully the ground floor adds some colour and life.

Final occupancy - could even be as late as January 2021?!

Here’s Black and White, much further ahead about 10.5 months ago:

Yeah hate to say it but could be a year away based on delays we’ve seen so far..

Wonder how long they will wait until they tell buyers cause April move in is a joke. My guess is they will keep renters on there toes and wait until February lol.

Went by the building site yesterday (December 6). They have installed almost all of the glazing on the Cook street side of the North building (old building) but still don't have the finish outside profiles. They were hard at work installing the profiles used to accept the glazing on the old portion on the Pandora side of the North building. The annex to the North building is however still a long way off, it looks like they only have the concrete structure and nothing more. On the courtyard side they still have less than half the glazing installed, all of it on the North building only and I was not able to discern the installation of profiles to accept any glazing on the South building, so it doesn't look like they have made any more progress in the glazing since the photos of November 17th posted by Scotto203.

Thanks for posting, getting hard to look at at this point.

I don’t understand why they didn’t start installing windows on the north section months (or years ago). Seems like their scheduling is non existent. multitasking trades doesn’t seem to be the developers/ gc competency.

Probably about 20% of windows installed in almost 2 months (and those installed aren’t 100% finished).. so they can start the interior build out by summer 2020? Lol

It’s up to the window supply firm to install the windows, as we were told earlier in this thread.

They couldn’t install the windows on the north slide as they had to cut the concrete and install the balconies first. You also don’t start with windows as there’s a high likelihood they’ll be damaged during construction.

And another note, window installation has to be done by a specialized crew, oftentimes the manufacturer. This is a key part of the facade and it has to be done right. We knew there was a delay manufacturing the windows and that pushed things back, but that’s just the market right now with manufacturers going all out supplying southwestern BC.
