We recently visited the corner of Yonge and The Esplanade in downtown Toronto to see the progress of Daniel Libeskind's L Tower, but we also stopped by the Backstage site to see what was new. Our previous trip to the site in November showed that it was truly at the early stages of preparation for excavation.
This time around, there was a bit more to see. Caisson drilling is roughly 80% complete and the first row of tie-backs on the south side of the site are 20% done. We're still in the early phase of excavation, but the main job for the next few months is to dig, dig, dig.
We hope to reach footing elevations in June. If everything goes as planned, we'll be back at street level early in 2013.
So, we're getting there! In one month, we'll provide you with another update. Check out our photos below, and visit Facebook for the full album.
