Drove up Johnson yesterday and saw they have begun installing some sharp looking glass walls (panels?) on the second storey....

I noticed this a few days ago myself and was pleasantly surprised. Although it's a "widescraper", this project looks like it is going to blow Hudson Place 2 out of the water.

At first it seemed like an abundance of glazing on those podium levels, which would make sense since it's north-facing on a shaded block (thanks to this building itself). But a lot of the glass is frosted. And what's all that wood framing behind the clear glass? Is that temporary during construction only? It would be insane to block the clear glass.

The day this message board starts relying on me for pics is the day I stop wasting my time on this message board. Unless we like lo-res & out-of-focus photos, upside down, with more than one artistic effect applied. I know some of you like that stuff a lot, but it's not my thing.

Too bad Mike K. can't find the time to get off his duff and snap a few pics around town.

A few pics from today.

For some reason this project seems a lot taller than 12 storeys.

For aastra: there seems to be no pattern to the clear vs. opaque glass on the podium.

If you have the enigma machine you can break the code.

I'm just saying the amount of clear glass is actually less than it might seem to a casual* observer. And I'm wondering what the deal is with the wood framing behind some of the clear glass. If shelving or other obstructions go up behind the clear glass then I'll classify that as some hardcore Victoria-style craziness.
