Lower Junction Construction Update

West Towns – 20 Perth Avenue

Construction of the townhouses is progressing steadily at the West Towns site. At the north end of the site, crews continue to work on the lower levels of the townhomes. Forming work continues - moving north to south on the site.

Municipal servicing work is expected to commence within the next two months. A printed 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 work made significant progress in August. Electrical work and piping for plumbing services and sprinkler systems are being installed throughout the building. Piping for washrooms is largely completed. Air handling units, hot water units and associated piping has been installed on several floors and the rest of the floors will have these units installed within a few weeks. Installation of ceiling lighting fixtures and the concrete sealing and polishing of the floors is taking place throughout the heritage building.

The roofing for the skylights (north lights) that will cover the northern section of the 10th floor has been installed. Glass installation and further work on the mechanical penthouse is set to get underway in early September.

On the north exterior of the Auto Building, the storm water management tank has been completed. Preparation work is set to begin this month for the installation of the exterior freight elevator along the north elevation, which will serve three floors of the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto.

Cut outs on the west face of the building on the main floor have been completed. The cut outs will support two new glass additions, which will mimic the saw tooth lines currently seen on the west face of the building. One of the glass additions will connect to the enclosed café area that the Museum will operate and the other will provide access to the lobby area that will serve the entire building. The glass additions will be adjacent to the new outdoor publicly accessible plaza area immediately west of the Auto Building.
