Hamilton, Ont. is experiencing a surge in construction, and that means a lot more cranes are dotting the skyline.

The surge began as COVID restrictions were lifted, with now 21 large cranes actively engaged in various building projects across the city.

Hamilton’s skyline continues to evolve as new structures take shape, ranging from residential buildings to commercial complexes, and contributing to the city’s urban revitalization. With 4,656 permits issued, the city ranks fourth in permits volume, according to a recent report by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).
