The Village by High Park, Site prep for foundation – photo update

Photo Microsoft Live maps

The site this past summer.

They continue to introduce I beams into the ground to provide structure for a bearing wall which will hold back the surrounding earth when they dig the ground out for the foundation. To do this they took down more of the subway wall, hopefully they will not need to take down any more.

This machine was used quite a lot at the railroad side of the lot, it will be interesting to see how it’s used (if at all) on the Keele St side and the Gas station side of the lot.

for those who would like a current view of the progress.
