Do my eyes deceive me or can you see these cranes from Begbie Street? The next time you're zipping by in your car try craning your neck in that direction (but just briefly enough so as not to be a road menace, because safety comes first). The cranes seem too close and too large. They appear to be right behind Hillside Mall. It's not quite three miles distance from there (from Begbie to University Heights), but I guess it's just very flat going up Shelbourne way.


edit: upon further review, I suppose the tallest crane must be about as tall as a ~20-story residential building?

Upon further further review, is there a crane anywhere else out Shelbourne way? Is there a crane at the McRae Ave project?

I haven't driven down there since July, will again when baseball season starts up in April.  Will be interesting to see the changes over the 8 months...  These pictures are spoilers ;).
