    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I think you are referring to the floor just below the one being formed now? (See the red annotation below.) It is there and you can identify it by the dark square fixtures that will be used to attach the glass wall. The current forms are obviously extended beyond the area that will be poured...

    Toronto | M1 & M2 at M City | 197.81m | 60s | Rogers Real Estate | Core Architects

    A good indication would be if they setup a smaller temporary crane at the top but it might not be easy to observe from ground level.

    I think they are currently working on the floor slab that will be the floor for the 16th storey. The first mechanical storey is the 17th.

    I think the same holds for the 1st, 11th, etc. On those floors the corner sections are supported by the diagonal beams from above.

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I think they are hoist elevators to be used during the early stages of construction. This was discussed on pages 856-857.

    I think there is, or at least there was, a concrete mix supply issue around the GTA.

    I would think so. That would be Wed to Friday so a 7 (work) day cycle.

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Perhaps but you can notice that the internal core wall forms and column forms are much taller/higher than the current floor heights so they might have taken that into account and the only difference would be the height of the rebar cages they need.

    Edge Towers (Solmar) - Real Estate -

    It has been topped out for more than a month and it seems they need more than a year to be ready for occupancy? Moving in will be staggered and can start even before common elements are finished as long they pass all safety checks and get the right permissions. I wouldn’t be surprised if lower...

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I am no expert, or even work in any field related to construction but from common observations, it seems that even with sites with wide staging areas, it takes crews some time to establish a repeating pattern and find an optimal workflow. In this case it seems they found that point around the...

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    That is correct. Floors 8-10 took a long time but during that span lots of time and effort was spent on infrastructure work like setting up the climbing core system, moving the concrete pump and I suppose optimizing the process.

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Yes that is too far back and before they installed the climbing forms. It took more than a month just to install that. Since then the pace has drastically sped up.

    Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    I am not sure how far you got back to arrive at that average but I think over the last 4 floors or so they have been doing a floor in less than 2 weeks and as fast as in 7 working days..

    Toronto | Forma | 308m | 84s | Great Gulf | Gehry Partners

    This is obviously off-topic, but the more recent dry fryers are almost as good as deep fryers with less hassle, smell and possibly produce healthier foods.

    Toronto | Voya | ?m | 42s | Amacon | Turner Fleischer

    That is a different block which will hold two or three towers. So except for a small sliver to connect the new park with the one east of Confederation, the canyon will be complete. See the below image courtesy of the developer where Voya is the block in green:
