A lot has changed on the east side of Downtown Toronto, with new residential developments popping up all over the area. Back in 2006, the Queen and Church neighbourhood was just starting to attract new residential growth, and at the start of the year, construction had begun at the site of Cresford Developments' 76 Shuter, on the north side of Shuter Street between Church and Jarvis.

Fast forward to July 16, 2015, and the completed 15-storey, 124-unit condo tower has long since been occupied, with residents having moved in back in 2007. Other projects are now in the process of adding even more residential density to the east side. We turn to a wider angle to reveal some of these changes. To the immediate left, the Georgian-style 19th century row houses visible in the "before" photo have been replaced by the crane for Core Condos. Behind it, the 78-storey Aura at College Park can be seen in the distance, marking the location of the Yonge-Gerrard intersection. To the right of 76 Shuter, the topping-off Pace Condos can be seen, marking the spot where it now towers over the Jarvis and Dundas intersection.
