No they’re not drilling for a great untapped oil well under Toronto, that giant drill is part of the Post House construction team!

Construction is well under way at the Alterra condo’s future home on George Street, near Queen and Jarvis.

Post House, named for its proximity to Toronto’s first post office, will soon soar 21 storeys into the sky. The 278 unit project is set for completion in 2013.

Its aesthetic has been characterized as chic and ultra-modern while still seamlessly fitting in with its heritage surroundings. It also happens to be only steps away from the St. Lawrence Market and a short walk from the Distillery District.

Check out more pics from the construction site below and check back soon to stay in the loop on Post House‘s progress.

A bit of an intimidating sight don't you think?

How big is the drill bit on this thing anyway?

This shot gives you a great view of the historic architecture that will surround Post House.

This guy is hanging out a little too close to the massive drill for our liking. We guess he's a professional though...
