How Do You Install a 328-tonne Bridge Between Two Condos?

Toronto skybridge

Very carefully.

Though condominium designs here in Halifax, Nova Scotia don’t yet resemble the ones above, (except maybe the soon-to-be “Iconic Tower” on the Dartmouth waterfront in the King’s Wharf Development), Toronto’s waterfront condo revolution continues to evolve in stunning ways.

And what an evolution it’s turning out to be. Awe-inspiring designs like the bridge at Concord CityPlace are dominating the city’s skyline and setting new precedents for condominium construction in Canada.

It isn’t just a walkway–it’s a “street in the sky”, complete with amenities and entertainment facilities. The real feat though is how the bridge was hoisted into place over the course of one night. See how they did it in this amazing video by Inkblot Media. You’ll see the idea behind the design, hear stories about challenges building the bridge, and jaw-dropping footage showing it being hoisted into place.
