Looks like they are using steal wood construction....
They're probably making out like bandits because of it.
What, is it a crime now to make a clever play on words? Why are you acting like a baby? Go have some candy.

Like I said in the Blanshard Courts thread, the new construction in this Scott Building redevelopment seems almost comically small scale. The Scott Building itself is a substantial heritage repurposing project. Methinks the new construction should have been at least a junior highrise. (The housing crisis seems to be everywhere except where you want it to be.)
That intersection is still an urban "no man's land" for the pedestrian. It's a gaping wide intersection and for reasons unknown the buildings diminish as you get near it. When you're walking around there you feel like you've been transported into Pixar's "cars" world. Methinks this Scott Building project represents a tremendous missed opportunity.
