It's business as usual down at Yonge and The Esplanade and our L Tower project.
With 58 storeys to build, the main work for the past few months has been adding all those floors and getting more vertical. When we visited the site last week the crew were busy pouring floor 47 so there's not too long to go before we reach the top.
Aside from that, work is continuing on closing off the building, with windows installed up to floor 12, and electrical, plumbing and water works ongoing both at L and the Sony Centre Back of House.
So, not too much to report at this time. The name of the game is getting up to the top and we're well on our way to getting there soon.
Check out our photos below and take a look at the birds eye view of the Union Station construction taken from L's 45th floor!
Are you an L Tower purchaser? What are you most looking forward to about moving in? Let us know in the comments below.
Daniel Libeskind's building is elevating, accelerating and propelling forward steadily. At L Tower, we're pouring level 35 this week. Our crew is on a four-day cycle, so a floor is being carried out every four days. Of course, it helps that the weather has been pleasant.
L Tower's low-rise elevator door frames will be completed this week and will virtually wrap up by the end of next week. The cabs are currently being set up on the mid-rise elevators, and we're putting finishing touches to them this week. Sooner than later, the high-rise elevator construction work will start soon.

Our last L Tower construction update was in mid-November, and since then, we've shared tons about Daniel Libeskind but not enough about the progress of his latest Toronto building. So what's new at the L?
The highly anticipated building is currently built up to the 23rd floor and continuing at a pace of roughly one floor built per week.
Windows have been delivered with some initial installations on the 4th floor with more on the way.
Plumbing, electrical, and water work will be starting in the next few weeks so our already busy site is about to get a whole lot busier.
The Sony Centre Back of House work has also been coming along nicely.
For all of our latest construction photos for L Tower, see our Facebook album. Anything you'd like to see in the next construction update? Let us know!
The Daniel Libeskind designed L Tower is really starting to take shape at Yonge St. and Front St. at the western edge of The Esplanade, as these pictures can attest to.
Check out the below images for all the latest, and check out our Facebook album for more pics.
The concrete pour schedule is speeding up the higher we get up - this is due to the fact that the build is getting more typical with each floor added
The RCS system is almost 100% installed and the main work right now is to enclose the site and get it protected for Winter so that the trades can work effectively. (We love this shot by the way!)
We are well underway with the work on the Sony Centre's back of house also, with mechanical and electrical rouhg-ins ongoing, and work has begun on studding, winter protection and controlling water migration. No finishing work just yet - but that's coming
Heat pumps will be on site in December which will allow the studding work to commece on the Back of House
We're getting ready to pour the rehearsal floor floating slab. This is the view from the Sony Centre podium
Temporary services are coming to the building over the next couple of weeks (natrual gas, heat) and the water was turned on this week. Once the water protection is in place then we can begin drywalling
The underground forming work on L is all done!
We've been blessed with the weather so we are well on schedule to completing all necessary winter protection work which will mean that we'll be in great shape for the cold months ahead. Windows are being delivered on site starting in January which will help a great deal in the next phase of construction.
So, like our other sites, work is continuing at a healthy pace, and we are making progress daily.
If you were around the St. Lawrence Market area over the weekend you would have noticed a lot of craziness. The Scotiabank BuskerFest was in town for four days and Cityzen were once again involved for the fourth year. We set up a booth in front of the Sony Centre and had some interactive entertainment and amazing prize to lure passer-by's in.
We'd like to thank all who contributed to a great cause, and we are delighted to say that we helped raise over $100,000 for Epilepsy Toronto. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth and to everyone who contributed over the course of the weekend.
It was another fantastic year on all accounts, with perfomers from around the world dazzling the crowds on the streets of Toronto. Congratulations to all of our prize winners, and we'll be back next year for BuskerFest 2012!
Some interactive entertainment and prize draws helped bring people to our booth.
Marc and Hess, our fantastic entertainers!
Night-time acrobatics on Front Street
Congratulations to everyone involved for such a terrific four days! Roll on next year! What was your favourite act at BuskerFest this year?

The Third Annual BuskerBall was held in St. Lawrence Market last night and as a proud sponsor of this year's Scotiabank BuskerFest, the Cityzen crew were in attendance to get a sneak peek of what's in store over the next four days.
Some of the best street performers in the world were joined by more than 600 guests with the common goal of raising money for Epilepsy Toronto.
There was plenty of action over the course of the evening, with various performers entertaining the crowd amidst a live auction presided over by Zack Werner (including a special appearance by the Toronto Maple Leaf's Colby Armstrong), with MC Tom Hayes of CTV guiding us through the evening's events.
Here's what you can expect on the St. Lawrence Market streets this weekend:
Contortionist Bendy Em fits herself into a 16 square inch box, with a basketball!
This year, the North Market interior was designed by Jamie Alexander.
The Scotiabank BuskerFest Toronto does fantastic work to help raise awareness for the 1 in 10 people who live with epilepsy.
Zack Werner and Jamie Alexander conduct a bit of live auctioning.
Mexican act Pancho Libre helps wrap up festivities with some impressive acrobatics.
Pyromancer from The Netherlands got the fire show finale started...
The Scotiabank Buskerfest runs from Thursday August 25th to Sunday August 29th in the St. Lawrence Market area.
It's a great day out for all ages so if you're planning a trip to downtown Toronto this weekend we fully recommend that you drop by and check out the amazing street performers and help out a great cause in supporting Epilepsy Toronto.
Cityzen will have a booth and we'll be giving away some great prizes so be sure to drop by and say hello!

L Tower, the Daniel Libeskind-designed 58 storey building in the heart of downtown Toronto is underway in its construction, and we're pleased to announce a special Penthouse Package promotion.
We've brought some of the best the industry has to offer together to bring this exclusive package together, including Downsview Kitchens, Miele, and Appliances Canada.
One of the main talking points of our Penthouse Collection is the curved glass design of the windows. Sales Manager Scott Davie had this to say about how the unique design contributes to Toronto's landscape:
"Condo windows began as regular windows you might find in the bedroom of a house. Next they were designed larger, and then, over time they were designed as floor to ceiling wall to wall windows, creating a panoramic view.
The next generation of view is a curved glass view, glass that is bent back toward the sky or forward toward the street, creating not only a panoramic view from right to left but a vertical panoramic view of the stars or the street.
We are currently offering this exclusive deal to our VIP Brokers until the end of August, so if you want to find out more information please give them a call. Many upgrade options are available.
For all other inquiries please contact our sales office at 416-777-2533.
