Avalon Urban Towns
I'm wondering how sales are going for this. The developer has gone on quite an unusually aggressive marketing campaign. From my experience, stacked towns when priced right sell fairly quickly as they are an affordable option for home ownership, and desirable with the millennial demographic. 

It's an interesting location. In one sense it's fairly suburban which might not appeal to some millennials, but on the other hand the housing type would.
This project is apparently 70% sold out.
Construction has begun on the first block with the foundation being prepared for a second. A small crane is also up on site.
This site seems to be one of the first spots in the area where I've seen a folding crane. Not sure of the technical details, but it looks like something that was transported to the site and then unfolded rather than constructed.

Edit: the term is self-erecting crane.
I particularly like the rooftop access this place will have. It should offer a pretty nice view of the city, that will get better over time.
