Lower Junction Construction Update

West Towns – 20 Perth Avenue

There has been significant progress at the West Towns site. Construction of the lower levels of the townhouses has filled approximately three-quarters of the site. Forming work for the final section of the lower levels is now occurring on the south end of the site. Once this is completed, work will commence on the upper levels of the townhouses.

Municipal servicing work is expected to commence in the coming months. As soon as the schedule for this work is finalized, both a printed and digital notice will be circulated to the community prior to work commencing.

As work progresses, care is continually being taken to ensure there are no significant traffic impacts in the neighbourhood. 


Auto Building – 158 Sterling Road

The Auto Building’s interior restoration continues to make significant progress.

Concrete polishing on the upper floors of the building has been completed except for the 10th floor. The installation of wall studs and insulation continues throughout the building. Drywall has begun being installed on the lower five floors that will be occupied by the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto.

New windows are being cut for the west face of the Auto Building, which reflect the industrial heritage character of the building.

Initial work to install the exterior museum standard freight elevator along the northwest corner of the building is expected to be underway in the second half of October. This elevator will serve three floors of the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto.

Work on the mechanical penthouse will continue through the balance of October, which includes restoration and sealing of the upper section of the building.
