Since development in our neighbourhood continues unabated and would have happened even if Midtown in Focus had been approved by the province, we are working with the city and individual developers to manage the construction. We are focusing on ensuring that:
Construction, including related vehicles, is contained on the building site rather than encroaching on our streets and sidewalks.
Parking laws are enforced to prevent congestion.
Signage is put up and enforced.
There is safe, efficient passage on sidewalks and roads for residents in the neighborhood, especially for those who use mobility vehicles or support animals.
Toronto has more cranes in the sky at present than any other city in North America according to a recent report from the surveying firm Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB).
With an estimated 97 active construction cranes as of July 2018, Toronto has more than double the number of cranes of Chicago, four times as many as San Francisco, and nearly five times as many cranes in the sky as New York City.
