You won't hear about specific retailers here for years as retailers do not typically secure spaces until shortly before buildings like this are about to open, unless a major grocery chain (and there won't be one here) has a multi-thousand square foot space designed into the building for them.Hello,
Does any one know what retailers will be renting there after the construction is done? Please share.

There is no "normal" as every site has different specs. This one is quite long and narrow, so they've determined that to cover the site properly, they need cranes near the north and south ends ,and one in the middle. You'll see tower cranes with fixed horizontal jibs, and hinged luffing jibs, like the three here. I'm not sure why they choose one style over another at any particular job site, it would be great if a UT member who works in the field could comment. @whatever - might you know?I saw them put up the third crane. Having three cranes on a site like this...is that normal? They operate with their arms near vertical because they're so close!
You can't hoist as much out near the end of the jib as you can closer to the mast, whether you're talking luffing crane or not, so even if cranes at the end of the long site might have reached to the centre of it, their hoisting capacity at the centre would be restricted.I kinda figure it's because there's numerous buildings nearby - so they need the crane arm to be at higher almost vertical angle; this means a smaller radius is covered by each crane - hence the need for more crane to cover the entire area. That said, they could have gotten away with 2 cranes; the third (middle one) is likely there to help speed things up since they have such a large floor base.
The Toronto Development Application submitted Architectural Plans would have been from 10 years ago! I recall seeing it and all the ground floor retail space was at that time one large chunk just under 30,000sqft - perfect for an urban grocer.Does anyone have a plan of the ground floor? I have a place in the area and would like to see how the retail is laid out. I looked on the Toronto Development application map and there is no documents for this building.
