West Towns – 20 Perth Avenue
The West Towns are taking shape as significant progress has been made this month with the townhouses’ framing work. The exterior walls and interior spaces are becoming clearly visible. Work began earlier this month at the north end of the site and has now reached the halfway mark. Second-storey framing is well underway at the north end, with first-storey work in progress midblock. Framing work on the southern half of the site will begin in December and continue through the month, weather permitting.
Municipal servicing work is expected to commence in the coming months. As soon as the schedule for this municipal servicing work is finalized, both a printed and digital notice will be circulated to the community prior to work commencing.
Auto Building – 158 Sterling Road
Over the past month, work on the Auto Building’s adaptive reuse has continued to make significant progress. The roof is now fully sealed. Restoration work on the north face of the mechanical penthouse is complete, while work on the south face is progressing well.
Drywall installation continues on the lower five floors that will be the new home of the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto.
A set of new windows has been installed on the west face of the Auto Building, which match the window treatments already installed throughout the building.
Installation work for the exterior museum-standard freight elevator, along the northwest corner of the building will continue through December, weather permitting. This elevator will serve the first three floors of the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto in the Auto Building. The climate controlled exterior freight elevator will permit exhibits to be easily loaded into the building.
Also of note, the mural by Jarus, located on the west face of the exterior of the Auto Building, has been restored by the artist. Please note that the wooden structure pictured here is temporary and will be removed prior to the Museum’s opening.
