Awaiting a crane: Looks like a construction crane will be installed on the Fly Condos building site on Front Street West near Spadina Avenue any day now. The excavation for the 24-storey glass, stone and precast tower is four levels deep on the east half of the site, and a concrete pad for the crane base has been prepared in the middle of the pit. A project of Empire Communities, Fly Condos was designed by Graziani & Corazza Architects Inc. Below is a billboard with a rendering of the Fly condo tower, followed by photos taken March 29 2011 of the excavation site.
