Exterior work at Backstage is making more progress. One the west side of the tower balcony railings are being installed in the centre and north suites. Last week railings were installed up to the 21st floor, weather permitting, work will continue this week. 

On the east side crews have been installing the porcelain tiles at the very top of the tower and will return to the lower areas in about a week, again this work is weather dependent.

Work on the podium continues with an emphasis on the outdoor pool which is now covered to permit work during cold or inclement weather. 

In the interior amenity areas continue to get closer to being finished.  There has been a lot of progress in the steam rooms and finishing in the 6th floor movie room and poker room.

Remaining unoccupied suites continue to have inspections and new residents are moving in as the finished suites are approved for occupancy.
