High above downtown's core, construction crews are keeping up with the rigorous schedule of pouring one floor each and every week.  By the end of the month the tower will stand 47 storeys high.

At the base of the tower, Bed Bath & Beyond welcomed its first customers last week to their 50,000 square foot flagship store located on the 2nd floor of Aura.  This popular North American retailer has already attracted thousands of shoppers and daily commuters.
