Has anything taken place at the site since the apartment building was moved?

This development will now have a municipal address of 200 Cook Street.

 

It was previously designated as 212-220 Cook Street.

It should be a high demand project I would expect.  They have a sales center already?

Anyone know what they're doing on the site now?  They seem to be hammering in tall v-shaped metal pieces all around the perimeter.  To hold back the edges when they excavate for the underground parking??

Last I heard they were hammering in tall v-shaped metal pieces all around the perimeter.

Any idea why?

Because it's easier than pushing them in by hand.  A hammer is basically a force amplifier that works by converting mechanical work into kinetic energy and back.

 
In the swing that precedes each blow, the hammer head stores a certain amount of kinetic energy—equal to the length D of the swing times the force f produced by the muscles of the arm and by gravity. When the hammer strikes, the head is stopped by an opposite force coming from the target, equal and opposite to the force applied by the head to the target. If the target is a hard and heavy object, or if it is resting on some sort of anvil, the head can travel only a very short distance d before stopping. Since the stopping force F times that distance must be equal to the head's kinetic energy, it follows that F is much greater than the original driving force f—roughly, by a factor D/d. In this way, great strength is not needed to produce a force strong enough to bend steel, or crack the hardest stone.

And much quicker than waiting for them to fall in under their own weight.

Why he heard the hammering?

 

Sound is considered a wave, but it is not a form of electromagnetic radiation like light. Instead, sound is a pressure wave that forms when the media it is traveling in is disrupted in some way. Because it needs a medium to form and propagate, sound cannot travel in a vacuum; there is no sound in space.

 

 
So the hammering caused a sound wave to travel to me, and then to be detected by my ears, and interpreted by my brain.  And because my ears and brain have been working in tandem for many years now, and have received a myriad of sound wave inputs over that time, I immediately interpreted it as a "hammering" sound.  As opposed to, say, anti-aircraft gun fire, which sounds a bit different in my experience, and is relatively rare in Cook Street Village this time of year.  My brain then called upon my eyes to confirm the initial analysis.  And they did.  
 
I hope we've answered all your questions about this project.  Remember, as Alan Perry of CFAX would say, there are no stupid questions.  However, here at VV, you may encounter stupid answers.

Because they are stronger and more durable than plastic ones.  But they cost a bit more.

Probably some sort of stabilization measure, I'd guess (i.e. so the pit doesn't fall in on itself when they begin digging the hole).
