I agree with the timeline from digging to now being reasonable. My suspicion is that the developers didn't have the city's OK to go ahead and build, hence the delay of 1.5 years. I was curious more to see if I should be expecting the same delay time frame on a Great Gulf purchase I made with Yonge + Rich.VIP sale started April 2011. I purchased in June 2011. Construction started 1.5 years later in December 2012, when they put up a "Sold Out" sign. It took about one year to dig the foundation (2013) and fill it up with basement levels (winter 2013-2014), now they're almost done with the podium, so overall the timeline is still reasonable.
