Two comments - first, agree that the holes being drilled look like footings - from their position in the site, it looks like they are for the Library building, a low rise structure, and not for the Library District Condominium building itself.

Secondly, my understanding is the dewatering system works on a venturi principle basis, with most of the water shown flowing into the blue container being recirculated -pumped back out through the two blue pipes on the right side. That is why there are two pipe runs on each side - a high pressure supply pipe (with small signs indicating that), and a return pipe. Only the relatively small amount of water that is actually extracted from the ground is shown going out the hole on the left of the box, and through the pipe to a sewer drain, close to Bathurst Street.

The crane base is now in place for the Library District condominiums - done in the past day or two.

From the position of the crane base, it looks like construction of the condominiums and of the library itself may be being handled as one overall project, as the shoring, retaining wall, excavation and de-watering activities to date have been.

City:
Toronto
Anybody hear when occupancy is? Last I heard was Nov 2013?

As they have not started actually building yet I would not start worrying about the exact opening date just yet. It's not a huge footprint and it will be 29 floors so construction will probably take about 2+ years. The King East (at King and Parliament) is now on floor 3 and has fairly new signs up saying "Occupancy May 2012" so never believe the developer!
