Construction of The Carlaw, a new development that straddles Leslieville and Riverdale in Toronto's east end, is well underway, with the momentary completion of its excavation and current work on the subterranean parking levels.

UrbanToronto Forum member chriskayTO captured the Tact Architecture-designed development's progress as floors and columns were being readied for the next pour, and cranes are poised to coming for above-ground tower construction.
