Gotta. keep building massive towers over the gated SFH in the area.

Toronto should rezone the yellow belt and build low/mid rises instead of ugly skyscrapers.

These are high quality towers going up in Vaughn city center one what was formerly parking lots, big box stores and strip malls. Not sure how this is building over gated SFH.

If you've wondered how Menkes' Festival Condos fits into QuadReal's 83-acre Assembly Park site (and just what it all entails on the south side of Highway 7 near Vaughan Metropolitan Centre subway station), we've tried to lay it all out in a front page story here!

What are all those concrete piles around the north crane base? Are those completed so excavation can proceed in the small area where the crane base is going in?

We recently received this image from Menkes…

…so we now have two cranes onsite plus the base for a third (while the yellow one is a mobile unit).

Thats an old photo taken before the new year. There are 3 cranes up currently!

The piles buried are concrete caissons drilled/poured down to the bedrock. The pile to the right are overpours that get cut off as it is contaminated with dirt.
