Excavation work begins at the site of the new Emerald Park Condos as seen in this photo by Urban Toronto forum member drum118.

Here's the site from across the street. 

Developed by Bazis International in partnership with Metropia and Plaza, the complex consists of 42 and 32 storey condos above a large retail base. Designed by Roy Varacalli, the condo is located at the southwest corner of Yonge and Bogert in the former North York. 

Here's the render that makes us salivate every time we see it.

And from high above. 

Glad to see work on Emerald Park Condos begin. We're going to love watching them rise from the 401.
