Toronto construction is ramping up. The city has the most cranes not just in Canada, but in North America, according to a new report.
The July 2019 RLB Crane Index shows the 6ix has 120 active cranes, which is up from 104 in January. That’s a huge chunk of the 428 cranes that are currently in use across 13 major Canadian and American cities. Toronto’s cranes are being used for mixed-use and residential projects in both the downtown core and surrounding area.
“Currently, residential and mixed-use projects command the local construction market; in the future, increased infrastructure spending is anticipated to trigger additional activity,” the report reads.
