There's one on Fallowfield Dr.  Since I don't drive by there I'm not positive.  But I see a crane from the expressway.

We always preferred to refer to it as "Needless Hell".

I was under the impression that the original Science Teaching crane went down and a new one went up for Needless Hall about 30 meters down the road, silly as it sounds.

The white one was always at STC.  It was a yellow one that went up (and down) at Needles Hall.
Tower crane now up at the ION storage and maintenance facility on Dutton Dr.
Crane going up today in the corner of University and Albert.

I drove by there on Saturday afternoon and there are two cranes going up ... unless my glasses were fooling me.
The other one went up last year...
There is a crane now in Sunview Court, north of University Av.
If the Sunview crane went up March 10th, then this is a new Lester St crane that went up yesterday, March 31st.   Quite the crane density happening now...
