We've been following the progress of our Waterlilies project in Oakville for quite some time now and have seen it develop from a big wet hole in the ground to an almost finished brand new community.
The Dominus crew have completed all of their work on site and now the Fernbrook crew is in doing what they do best.
All six blocks are in the final few phases of exterior completion, with balconies being put in, brickwork well underway and roofing all but finished.
By the looks of things, we won't have too many more visits back to Waterlilies after this one!
Check out these latest images below.
We visited Brampton last week to check in on what's been happening and can report that progress on site is continuing at pace and we expect to remain on schedule.
The caisson wall, king piles and soldier piles are all completed and the process now is to dig as long and as deep as we can to start strutting in the next couple of weeks.
The aim at the moment is to mobilize the formwork this summer, with Verdi Alliance recently confirmed as the formworkers for the project.
Once underway, there will be two tower cranes on site, temporary power for the cranes, hoist and workers tools and a gas line will be installed soon for temporary heat for the winter months.
Check out our latest images from on site below.
It's business as usual down at Yonge and The Esplanade and our L Tower project.
With 58 storeys to build, the main work for the past few months has been adding all those floors and getting more vertical. When we visited the site last week the crew were busy pouring floor 47 so there's not too long to go before we reach the top.
Aside from that, work is continuing on closing off the building, with windows installed up to floor 12, and electrical, plumbing and water works ongoing both at L and the Sony Centre Back of House.
So, not too much to report at this time. The name of the game is getting up to the top and we're well on our way to getting there soon.
Check out our photos below and take a look at the birds eye view of the Union Station construction taken from L's 45th floor!

We've been visiting The Shores in Oakville for over a year now and have closely followed the construction progress of our Bronte Road and Ontario Street based project on the blog.
With many residents having already moved in and the majority of work being completed, there's not much left for us to show!
The rooftop amenity space is the last major area of the building that requires work, with the townhomes also nearing completion.
The majority of the landscaping work is complete and so any work that's left to be done on site is mostly aestehtic.

We found this timelapse video by Urban Toronto forum member, udo, and we thought it was so cool we had to share. The video shows ten months of L Tower construction in Toronto compressed into ten seconds (30 days/frames per second starting in July 2011).
"I tried my best to align the individual pictures which were not taken by a stationary camera, but from a tripod mounted camera that [was] repositioned every day," udo writes. "The video isn't perfect, but still interesting, I hope."
We're looking forward to the next timelapse video when the tower reaches its full height, windows installed and cranes disassembled.
Here's what the L Tower will look like upon completion:
At Waterlilies in Oakville, all slabs have been poured. Right now we're finishing the landscaping walls on the last couple of blocks. While Blocks 4 and 5 are waiting to be built, blocks 1, 2, 3, and 6 are under way.
The underground is almost all done. The sprinkler system has just been completed and the plumbers and electricians are in at the moment finishing up their work. Also, the pond is being drained at Phase 2 to prepare for work.

Things have picked up at The Shores in the last few weeks. The good news is that the first residents moved in, which must be pretty exciting. Brickwork on the through road is almost finished, the town homes are growing and the majority of the work on site is purely aesthetic.
We found some more pictures from March shot from across the water.
On April 25 and 26, residents from both Mississauga and Brampton were invited to an open house regarding plans for Light Rail Transit (LRT) on Hurontario and Main Street in both cities. Currently, the Hurontario-Main LRT Project is in its preliminary design and assessment phase.
This is just one example of how much the City of Brampton is expanding. And with that, here's the latest construction update from Brampton City Hall, where Dominus is working diligently on the Southwest Quadrant Renewal Plan. The mixed-use development will include new administrative, parking and retail space downtown.
Currently, Dominus is mainly working on shoring, with Caisson walls half-complete and taking up a large chunk of the schedule for the next few weeks.

In Phase 1, the 12th floor has been poured on building one. The 8th floor on building two will be poured by the end of the week.
In Phase 2, the fourth floor of building one is complete, and at building two the 2nd floor is complete.
For now, we have to finish Phase 1 and 2 before we move on to Phase 3 which will consist of two short buildings and one tall building in total.
