Not too long ago didnt we have three cranes with the cannaught, 150 main and the rentals at cannon and wellington?

I get your point though. Very exciting. Lets try to make it 4 or 5.

Yep we've had 3 before. Even still, there are more cranes probably due to go up soon. Might have 4 or 5 up at the same time if construction at the Kresge site happens soon.

I believe for the past couple years Toronto has been outpacing New York And Chicago in terms of skyscrapers being built.

Chicago yes, New York, No. Toronto was on top in the early 2010's, but New York has caught up.

Also that map was laughed at as ridiculously bad on the full forum for being so wildly inaccurate. There are far, far, far more than 28 cranes in NYC right now.

Very excited to watch this grow, even though the design is kind of putrid.

Love those exposed walls - probably will be covered up but neat to see some history of billboard advertising
