Anyone know if the plan for these buildings is to build both above and below the rails?
You can see the plans on City website - Development Applications - and higher up in this thread but in answer to your question, no there is no significant building (except improving the teamway, under the tracks. The park area is above them.

Yet they are the smallest of the 5 major Canadian banks. Go figure.

TD was the smallest back in the 1960's when they decided they needed something impressive for a headquarters. Hence the TD Centre. Today they are firmly number two in Canada.

Interesting that CIBC has its name on two developments. Here at CIBC Square and the possible other one at Commerce Court 3.

They are only a tenant in this and have nothing to do with QuadReal's CC3 proposal. The latter has also been around for close to two years now so the bank would have been briefed to see if they wanted to occupy the space.

Looking down Bremer east of York Street will likely end up being be my favourite spot to view this when complete. This will also look great from Maple Leaf Square / ‘Jurassic Park’, looming behind the Air Canada Centre. A sight to behold.

Happy Frigid Friday. (both pics are through a dirty kitchen window today)

As you can see one crane has been named 'Crane 2' the other one is still nameless. A reactivation of work began on Tuesday. A jackhammer attached to a digger has been busy creating trenches between the two cranes 12hrs/day. The trenches are the same depth as one worker standing up, which includes the hard hat so my guess is 2m/2.5m deep. There is also some trench digging under the platform that was constructed along the east side of Bay St. The ramp that ran down the middle of the site is being removed and a new ramp has been installed along the east side of 18 Yonge St.

The tieback machine next 18 Yonge is just parked, it is not drilling into the existing building. All the equipment between 18 Yonge and the tracks has been moved so I assume, perhaps wrongly, that they will be lowering the excavation in this area in the next week.

It's very interesting to watch the engineering of the excavation, every time a new ramp is constructed the entire old ramp is totally removed from the site, they have never used the same materials twice when constructing a new exit ramp. The planning required to manage this efficiently is remarkable. There is no wasted movement of materials from one place to another.
