Thanks for that Koops. I'm sure I read somewhere that there was a proposal to be around 83 floors to be taller than One Bloor when that was proposed to be around the same height. I could quite easily be mistaken, but it does ring a bell.

That's only going to be relevant to those that use British Imperial Units. To most of the world this is a 272 m building.

Coming in on the train tonight Aura was looking magnificent. It really is a great sight to be seen.

The curved portion on the top is a beautiful touch. I hope many other projects will look like Aura.

I'm absolutely floored by how tall this project appears. And with a little bit remaining to be built, too!

It certainly is quite dominating now. It's very prominent sticking up as you view the skyline coming in on the train. I'm liking the curve at the top now that the cladding is added. I think once finished the base will work very well with this top portion.
