Construction: Toronto: Yonge and Spring Garden - August 2021

There is some interesting construction going on at Yonge St & Spring Garden Ave in Toronto, ON, Canada. Interesting site plans and explanations of the construction can be found here:

Toronto is a densely populated city with many condos and cranes. All non-essential construction projects will be halted to help slow the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19. The list of exceptions under this category, however, is long and complicated. Allowed projects are "infrastructure projects such as new hospitals, roads and bridges" and "residential construction that is near completion." The rules also allow many of the condo projects and residential home renovations that have already started.

On April 16, 2021, in response to alarming new COVID-19 case growth and a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ontario government announced a return to shut down of certain non-essential construction projects, with effect at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, April 17, 2021. There is now the possibility of a 4th virus wave.
