Last week we caught up with recent progress on the skybridges at Waterlink at Pier 27, the Cityzen and Fernbrook Homes project on Toronto Harbour at the base of Yonge Street. The three-storey steel structures span the gaps between pairs of 11-storey concrete buildings in the architectsAlliance-designed project, and will be home to unique units when the project is complete.

Today we bring you right up to date with the completion on the ironwork on the bridges, and we also go back in time to September 2012 when the first skybridge was still pretty new. The photos will mostly run without text other than captions; this is a case where the pictures pretty much tell you what you're looking at. Enjoy contemplating the the volumes and what's to come as the glazing goes up!

First up, SkyJacked, UrbanToronto's eyes in the sky positioned atop the L Tower, catches us up with the last of the ironwork on the skybridges at the end of last week.

UrbanToronto member Jasonzed took to the waters of Toronto Harbour last weekend, and brought back the following four views of the complex and the city's skyline from the south.

This is what we found, below, when we visited the site in September as work on the first of the two skybridges progressed.

We will be back soon to look at more aspects of this emerging Toronto waterfront landmark.
