According to the Rider Levett Bucknall’s Crane Index for North America, which tracks the number of operating tower cranes in 14 major cities across the U.S. and Canada, Toronto has seen a 21 per cent increase from this time last year.

Toronto has lead the crane count in North America since 2015.

“The commercial sector leads the change in the numbers, with an increase of 18 cranes. Residential and mixed-use projects also experienced growth, with a combined increase of seven cranes,” states the report.
