Duke Tower Kitchener | 39 fl | U/C

This issue has nothing to do with the developer.   It is as simple as the contractor rented a crane and the provided equipment had an issue.  Now they have to remedy it.  The crane is extremely integral to the build and safety has to be the number one priority over delays. This crew has worked faster than any other project I have seen in the region. I suspect once the crane is functional you will see a blistering pace of work.

That crane looks sketchy and old. I would question its ability to hoist fly forms 39fl up. Definitely staying away from that site.

Hmm.  Trying to fix the crane on a late Sunday afternoon...  22 Frederick is in the background.
