After sitting half-finished for 15 years, the affectionately-nicknamed "Stump," aka the Bay Adelaide Centre, is finally one step closer to actual completion. The east tower of Brookfield Properties' Bay Adelaide Centre designed by KPMB Architects and Adamson Associates Architects is under steady construction. A rollercoaster history of new ownership and depleted funding proved that building a genuine skyscraper could be risky business. Now the Bay Adelaide Centre is looking majestic from all vantage points downtown. Currently in the office tower's second phase of construction, concrete floor slabs are being poured over the building's structural frame, setting the layout of a huge open space that wraps around. Once finished, these two towers promise to bring a glamourous look - and sense of closure - to the city's financial district.
