The Village by High Park putting back some historical elements?

During past few weeks the Options for Homes development on Keele St.  just north of Dundas St. West,  has seen alot of activity, just none of it lending itself to interesting  images the told a story of progress. They have been working on the foundation area of their  1st  tower, as can be seen in the concrete form work in the 1st picture below.

But the real great and interesting item of note and the reason for this post today is that they appear to be replacing some of the stone they removed from the historic wall that ran along the side their lot on Keele St.  In the picture they may be  returning the wall into their lot, that is –  where the original wall ran along Keele St., they are replacing a section at a right angle for maybe 20 feet.

New wall from old?

Many of the removed rocks sat in their lot for for some time this may be the reason.
