This week's Throwback Thursday takes us back to January 2017 for a view of the Toronto skyline as seen from a residential tower in the Regent Park neighbourhood. From left to right, this view showed construction underway at the Sun Life Financial Tower and Harbour Plaza Residences complex, Backstage on The Esplanade, the L Tower and its long-lasting temporary work platform and derrick, and 88 Scott Street

Over two years later, all the buildings mentioned above have wrapped up construction, including the long-awaited removal of the L Tower's temporary derrick and work platform. In the meantime, more buildings have popped up: between Harbour Plaza Residences and L Tower, Ten York Street has added a 65-storey condo tower to the mix, while a pair of cranes and a sliver of the rising tower core can be seen for the 49-storey south tower of the CIBC SQUARE office complex near Union Station. In the lower right area of the image, a pair of tower cranes mark the location of the Yonge & Rich Condominiums development, set to ascend 46 storeys into this view.
