Its been a long time coming but it certainly looks like One Bloor East condos is about to start construction. As we see in this picture by Urban Toronto forum member dt_toronto_geek, shoring equipment has started to arrive on site. That means excavation should be starting sooner rather than later.

Back in February of 2010 we took a look at the long history of One Bloor, a history that goes back more than 10 years. That history includes three separate developers and at least that many designs.

Well it looks like this time we'll finally get what we've been waiting for all these years.

Coming in at an expected 70 storeys, the Great Gulf Homes developed condo is being designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects. Yonge and Bloor will never be the same.
