Excavation at Westrich Pacific's The View project appears to be close to reaching the bottom, five months since we reported crews had begun digging at the site on 111 Street between 99 and 100 Avenues.

Photos by Forum contributor positive1 show a deep and narrow excavation pit. Equipment and materials in the photos seem to suggest crews still have a bit further to go before they reach the bottom, and before we will start to see a structure rising up.

The first of a collection of tower proposals in the area collectively known as Grandin City, the Chris Dikeakos-designed building will rise to a height of 76 metres and 23 storeys above ground when complete, bringing 178 residential units to the Oliver neighbourhood near Grandin LRT station.

Future residents will also find themselves close to downtown and numerous amenities including a grocery store and the river valley parks, on top of private amenities such as a fitness centre, rooftop lounge and sundeck, a car share service, and secure bicycle parking.
