After watching the Calgary crane thread for a few years, I thought we could expand on the idea from coast to coast. Im looking forwards to seeing the different locations and I know I will be surprised with the actual count on cranes in specific cities, or suburbs and even Neighborhoods to that as well.


I live in West Surrey ( 10 blocks from Delta ), so for this location I can think of 4, I believe. I will confirm & add pics to that effect later today, & yes I know the cranes Im showing above are not from the GVRD, no need to point that out.

I was in Montreal last weekend and was surprised to see the skyline full of cranes. They don't get enough of a showing around here. I didn't bring my camera and I was only there over night so no pics sorry.

Question for any Montreal forumer. You have some great stuff going up in the core but I noticed most of the residential u/c aren't constructed with poured concrete walls. Is it customary to just build condos without any permanent barrier between units? It seems like a fire hazard as well as a sound barrier problem.

you mean concrete highrise condos or lowrise wood condos? In Vancouver, wood condos except the foundations are mostly made of woods even the walls between the units.

Concrete highrises. I should have snapped some pictures. It seems all of the condos I saw u/c were being built without concrete barrier walls between units.

:bash:

It's hard to tell from this image I found but all the condos by my hotel in Griffontown just had the floor slabs and elevator/stair shafts in poured concrete. Interior walls were just metal frames and insulation.
