The Toronto branch of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) will be holding a panel discussion this week on Thursday, September 23 at 12 noon, with panelists sharing their thoughts on and outlook for the residential and commercial real estate markets, and to share key insights from the latest Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) Crane Report that was released earlier this month.

Cranes have been going up like crazy in the city, and Toronto's crane index has set a new RLB record with 225 active cranes–an 8.2% growth from earlier this year in March 2021 and doubling the pre-pandemic count in just 18 months.
