crane shot of the day

Ya Want A Crane Shot? Ya Got A Crane Shot!

Quantum Crane, Yonge south of Eglinton, Dec 2/05

For over a year now, my department has alternately been entertained, fascinated and shaken as the Minto condo towers rise from the rubble of the old OHIP building. Controversy has surrounded this project, due to its size (up to 54 stories) and neighbourhood fears about traffic and blockage of the sun. Personally, with Eglinton station across the street and most residents likely working in the city, I think the area should be able to handle the influx.

Here's a closeup of the crane working on the south tower. More pics soon here and on Flickr. - JB
