What percentage of cranes in the GTA do we think has been captured? I think fairly high, but even if it is 90%, another 10% would be 31 or 32 cranes, for a grand total that approaches 350...

I bet that within the 416 we have 98% of the cranes counted, if not 99%. I'm hoping someone will drive by sometime to see if there's a crane there (7 on the Park on Lawrence west of Keele), and I'm curious about the Woodbine Casino resort project, not certain of the number of cranes there… plus there have got to be a couple others which are not top-of-mind for me right now in parts of the city that don't normally get visited. As the weather improves though, and as people get tired of their usual exercise runs and they begin to visit parts of the city they're not normally in, I'm hoping that we get up to 100% soon.

In the 905, I'm not sure what percentage I'd put us at, other than to say that while we have some excellent coverage in certain areas, it's out of date for others, and I just don't feel that we're comprehensive out there yet.

Interesting. I would have bet 102%, with some remaining on the list which have since been removed from the work-site.
I'm trying to be vigilant about that too! I'd be surprised if there are 4 or 5 gone already from the list that we haven't caught.

What are the outer limits that you're considering for cranes on this list?

Edit: geographically speaking

If you look back on page 1, you'll see each of the municipalities we're following so far, but if you have a reasonable list for one further out, eg. Milton beyond Mississauga and Oakville, I'd be interested in adding it. Not sure that K-W Cambridge or Guelph would be worthwhile at this point, not until we have more threads for those places.

Thanks! Down from 5? Are 3 of the buildings now done? I wish we had up-to-date photography of the site! (@slickpete83: around there with a camera at all? others?)

Change log: dropped 3 from Woodbine Casino Resort, Massey Hall dropped, added 1 for 7 on the Park, added 1 for 8 Haus, Toronto. Moved M City: M3 up to 2, Mississauga, added 2 for LiUNA and moved Mobilio from 2 to 4 in Vaughan.

Grand Total: 319

Back in K-W and bored for Victoria day, so went out and biked around the universities area and all the way down King until the density stops past Downtown Kitchener, and can count 21 cranes. I doubt I'm missing any more within half a kilometer of King St., but there may be more cranes out in the suburbs or towards Cambridge. Probably a few more scattered around the region in suburban projects, so @Pinski 's number of 27 seems pretty correct.

Student/universities area
250 Phillip St. (Elora House I believe) - 1
145 Columbia St. W (ICON145, towers C and D) - 2
199-205 Albert St. - 1
155 King St. N - 1
128 King St. N (One28) - 1

Rest of Waterloo
Barrel Yards V (road not built yet, tower name Royal Oak?) - 1

DTK
749 King St. W (The Bright) - 1
607 King St. W (Station Park) - 2
20 Breithaupt St. - 1
114/120 Victoria St. S - 2
55 Duke St. W (Young Condos) - 1
78 Frederick St. (Duke Tower Kitchener) - 1
51-53 David St. (Otis in the Park) - 1
120 Benton St. (Arrow Lofts II) - 1
242 Queen St. S (Ophelia) - 1
475 King St. E - 2
66 Weber St. E (Civic66) - 1

The problem with a comprehensive crane count of KW is that most building discussion happens over at WRConnected, so I doubt there will ever be thorough coverage of KW projects on this forum. Though we should have at least the major projects.

EDIT: (I can count at least three more in the region from the top floor of my building, one in the southwest of Waterloo or maybe in Kitchener, and two more in the west, so that makes 24)

Thanks for that! Impressive amount of activity there. I won't add these to the GTA list yet, will see if the K-W-Cambridge threads continue to pick up here. Amazing start though!
