According to the latest Rider Levett Bucknall’s Crane Index for North America, which tracks the number of operating tower cranes in 14 major cities across the US and Canada, Toronto has seen a 21% increase over last year.
Toronto maintained its top spot, even though project completions took away 18 cranes from the previous survey. 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.
Toronto has lead the crane count in North America since 2015.
