North American cities with the most construction cranes

Rider Levett Bucknall recently released its RLB Crane Index for Q3-2018. Here are the top 10 cities in North America (table via the New York Times):

For the third consecutive reporting period, Toronto has taken the number one spot at 97 cranes – 85 of which are being used on residential projects. 

I’m not at all sure how the study defines “mixed-use” projects. But given that Toronto only has 2 of them, it must not include projects with grade-related retail.

Across North America, residential and mixed-use projects (whatever they are) make up approximately 70% of the total crane count. 

I am surprised that Miami didn’t make the list.
