June 19 - Building 'F' Crane Replacement

A long day for the crane erection crew. The former luffer type crane at Building 'F' has been removed. Unlike the crane replacement that took place last year at Building 'C', in which the base components of the mast were retained, it appears that the entire mast was lifted out today - the only component not sure of is the whether the base frame component of the mast, containing the hydraulic jacks, was retained or replaced.

The new crane appears to be a standard hammer head type. At 10 PM, work is ongoing on attaching the main boom to the mast part of the crane. Counterweights still to come - at one point, it appears that the counterweights were lifted off the delivery truck, and staged on the ground between buildings 'E' and 'F' - presumably to allows the transport tucks and drivers to leave.

Some pictures from this afternoon / evening (please excuse the quality - taken with a cell phone with maximum zoom)

Those residential towers remind me of the Coast at Lakeshore East tower by bKL in Chicago, which was recognized for an AIA Chicago Design Excellence Award in 2014:

Perhaps Toronto receives it in its crystallized form, but I see this having potential given the proper glazing.

I thought originally I might've been overhyping the glazing potential but it looks like this one is on track!
