The east side of Downtown Toronto has seen a tremendous amount of new residential developments in recent years, and this up-and-coming area of the city continues to see new growth today. Back on April 25th of 2007, the former Goodwill site at Adelaide and George Streets was being cleared in preparation for the construction of Vü Condos. From this angle we can see our skyline missing a number of recent additions. Can you name them all in the comments section at the bottom of this page?

We will return next week with another look at the changing face of Toronto!
