Final touches? Major construction concluded a few months ago, residents have been moving into the building ever since, and now it appears that Lumiere Condominiums on Bay Street is finally getting finishing touches to its exterior. Or is it? In my first post about Lumiere on January 5, I noted that aluminum panels were missing from large, long sections of the building podium. About two weeks later, as I reported in a January 21 update post, I saw crews working on some of the unfinished areas. But they didn’t do much, and the podium’s exterior remained incomplete throughout the winter. However, aluminum panel installation has resumed, so it’s possible the podium cladding project could literally wrap up this spring.  Crews are concentrating on the west side of Lumiere, along Laplante Avenue, but still have some small areas to attend to on the south side as well. Below are some pics I snapped Sunday afternoon of the podium work underway at Lumiere.
