Wonder if my view of the CN Tower will be blocked. It's going to be close, may have an obstructed view.

Ok, I'd better get mine up before they stale date, LOL; photos taken August 9th, 2022:

First, just a shot of phase 1 from the corner of York and Front (then construction)

Not quite..........but the result.......is here.........the arm came all the way back up:

City:
Toronto
Silly question: Will those weirdly angled iron beam thingies directly link the bridge park to the north cores as a form of support?
No, those are there just to hold the tower up. I know, boring! Engineers… always with the "this building has to be able to stand up!"

I am a bit surprised as I looked into the pit yesterday and what looked like the new crane pit was filled with water and no sign of the crane support structure but.....
Saw two crane parts in the pit this morning when I came in and the big crane was there. Maybe I mistook this and they are just putting in the crane parts for now.

The waterman on Yonge from King to Queens Quay is scheduled for replacment this fall. Clearly, not a moment too soon!

You're slightly understating the scope of work....

There's also total Sanitary Sewer Replacement.

I'm assuming this will involve open cut and cover work, it's scheduled Fall this year to Fall 2023.

Not showing yet, but I'll assume this means total reconstruction for this part of Yonge in 2024.
