These two buildings are the rental replacement buildings. They are 6 or 8 storeys tall (I think, Solaris posted a clear site plan but his photos are not showing up). Construction has not started on the condos yet, which will be located closer to Don Mills.

I'm guessing 'Parkway Forest Buildings 3+4' refers to the next phase of rental replacements (bldg E1+E7) to be built :confused:

Thank you for the update, drum118!

I haven't been to the site for a few weeks, and look it that! It's going up fast.

Remember, they are still just building the replacement rental apartments. I wish they were the condo. :(

Will they continue building through the winter, or will they stop?

I don't know if cold weather will stop them from pouring, even if it does, I guess they can do some interior work :D
