A decade into The Daniels Corporation's and Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC)'s multi-phased Regent Park revitalization, cranes continue to pop up in the increasingly inviting neighbourhood. The latest crane to rise over the streets of Regent Park is that of The Bartholomew, a new 13-storey condominium development, featuring a design by Quadrangle Architects

The installation of the crane, which commenced Tuesday morning, was captured by UrbanToronto Forum contributors in the south tower of One Park Place to the east. Sections of the tower crane were individually hoisted into place by a portable hydraulic crane and then secured. The selection of images below highlights the process from start to finish. Viewed clockwise from the top left, the images pick up where the first image in the article left off; showing the installation of the cab atop the crane mast, the hoisting of the crane's jib arm, and the final installation of the jib arm.

The tower crane installation marks an important milestone in the construction of the project, which will add 159 condominium units and 30 townhomes to the Regent Park neighbourhood. Residents at The Bartholomew will enjoy a long list of amenities, including a party room with a kitchen/bar, a 24/7 lounge, pet spa, a landscaped courtyard, a fitness centre, among others.
