I've looked through some old maps of Toronto Harbour, but what I have is not detailed enough for me to feel fairly sure about what I'm looking at. There were most definitely wharves at the end of Yonge Street that have been long since surrounded by further landfill, but I am not certain that these are concrete cribs for one of the former wharves.So what was there? They picked out something weird from the other pit too before they build on it.
wow! they ran over all those goodies to build Toronto star building and all that crap in the neighborhood.
And if those maps are correct, as I certainly suspect they are, we'll be seeing more of this in Phase 3 of this project and Phase 2 of Sugar Wharf when they start digging, I gather.From WT - Archaeological Conservation and Management Strategy:

The map is definitely clear enough to show the foundation cribs are exactly where they are supposed to be.
