Almost exactly one year ago, we ran an article covering the numerous construction webcams keeping tabs on some of the many projects being built around the city. We returned with an update this past October on many of the same projects while noting new webcams. There are still more to add though on Toronto's construction projects, many of which will be familiar to our readers.
One of the more popular projects with a webcam pointing at it, Oxford's EY Tower at 100 Adelaide West has just recently met a major milestone, with construction reaching ground level. With the complicated below-grade work now complete, it won't be too much longer before the 40-storey office tower starts to make an impact on the surrounding Financial District skyline. You can check out the webcam by visiting this link.
Another project you can track online is the University of Toronto's John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, currently under construction at 1 Spadina Crescent. This complicated project involves the modernization and expansion of a beautiful example of 19th century Gothic Revival. You can check out the webcam by visiting this link.
Another U of T project is the Jackman Law Expansion, under way at 78 Queens Park Crescent, just north of where Queens Park Crescent meets Hoskin Avenue. You can check out the webcam by following this link.
The University of Toronto is also building new facilities elsewhere in the GTA, including the new UTSC Environmental Science and Chemistry building under construction at the Scarborough Campus. You can follow the construction webcam, which is updated every 15 minutes, by visiting this link.
There is plenty of construction going on in the Yonge and Eglinton area of Toronto, including the 34-storey Minto30Roe Condos. This project's webcam also gives us a view of the E Condos site in the upper right corner, at least for the time being.
Also in the Yonge and Eglinton area, construction is progressing on the podium levels of The Madison, a pair of 36 and 33-storey towers on Eglinton just east of Yonge Street. You can keep tabs The Madison's webcam at this link.
In the Yonge and Sheppard area, construction is progressing along on Minto's 88 Condos (Ei8hty8 Condos). The 35-storey condominium tower is approaching structural completion, and you can check out the webcam for this project by visiting this link.
Just north of the city limits, construction is progressing at the site of Cortel Group's Expo City, a pair of 37-storey towers being built on Highway 7, east of 400 in Vaughan. You can visit the webcam by following this link.
At Kennedy and Sheppard, construction is under way on Avani, part of developer Tridel's master-planned Metrogate community. Tridel has been known for having webcams installed around their construction sites, and their projects were extensively featured in our first two webcam articles. You can track Avani's webcam by following this link.
It is clear that webcams have proven to be a popular resource for construction updates, albeit without the commentary that spells out the details. To help make sense of it all, our dataBase files linked below provide background information on all the projects mentioned and lots of renderings. In addition, each project's related Forum threads provide valuable commentary.
