With development proposals regularly submitted to the City for approval, and new cranes popping up or old ones being lowered, construction never seems to stop in Toronto. While we track all of this information on a daily basis with UrbanToronto Pro, with this monthly front page feature we present a roundup of projects where construction has started, and those that we marked as completed, now that occupancy has begun.
