Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

I think from McDonalds (ish). It took me a min bc Breithaupt St looks like a circular driveway for the building, and there's no room for that!

Yup, you're right.  I totally misremembered the massing of the addition for a second.

With the glazing now going up on the top floors, you can see the beginnings of the "creases" in the glass curtain wall. Should be interesting when it's all up.

Found a cool older picture from what looks like mid-renovations over at Ontario Heritage Trust, thought I'd share it:

I really like that crease in the glass that you can see in the photo. It looks even better in real life.

The angle/crease in the glass is starting to look very good now that more of the glass has been installed.

The frame for the overhead passage between the "new" building and the rest of the complex is now in place.

Just realizing, they're getting this done just in time to be able to put the new Google logo on the building.

Looking good.  I like the two-tone dark brick with the glass.
