Of the many changes that new development has brought to Toronto in the last few years, few projects have had as great an impact as Aura at College Park, a 78-storey condominium tower on the northwest corner of Yonge and Gerrard. The development has been the focus of plenty of attention over the course of its construction, and the site of the tower has been well documented since day one. Back in February 2010, excavation for the massive development was just getting under way, as captured by Forum member dt_toronto_geek.

Four and a half years later, the condominium tower is topped off and residents have begun to move in to the building, while final exterior elements of the project continue to take shape in advance of its completion.
