Steveve,any idea when emerald might start? that hoarding looks like ground breaking's around the corner.
some nice progress with the groundbreaking. the site looks much smaller now though (did they divide it or something with the trailers on the south-east corner?)
Assuming the latter part of your comment applies to the Tridel Hullmark centre site - two reasons why it may look smaller now. First, Anndale Drive is being extended through to Yonge Street, at the south end of the site, so the shoring and excavation activities are all taking place up from the original southern perimiter of the shopping centre property. Secondly, once the site was cleared, without any buildings on it there are no structures to provide visual reference and scale to the property. I am sure there are technical terms (which I do not know) to describe the effect, however it is one which I have noticed at other sites - that they do seem visually smaller once they have been cleared.
