Lower Junction Construction Update

West Towns – 20 Perth Avenue

Construction on the West Towns has been steady through the winter so far. Framing work for the townhouses has reached the third floor across the entire site. Window installation is underway in the northern half of the site. As with previous construction phases, window installation will move north to south as the work progresses.

Work on the interiors of the town-homes will also be the focus of the coming weeks as window glazing is installed and the units are weather-sealed.

Municipal servicing work is expected to commence in the latter part of the winter. 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

Work on the Auto Building’s adaptive reuse continues this month with a focus on finishing the interior spaces on the first 5 floors, which will serve as the new home for the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto. Drywall and interior glass installation has been completed on the fifth floor, which will house the Museum’s administrative offices and meeting room space.

The installation of the second set of interior window glazing has been completed on the 2nd and 3rd floors. This second set of windows will ensure museum-standard climate control on the floors of the gallery where artwork will be displayed.

The steel structure, that serves as the roof for two new glass additions along the west side of the building has been installed. These glass additions will connect to MOCA’s ground floor café and building lobby.

On the main floor the original wooden doors are being reinstalled at the main Sterling Road entrance.

We look forward to providing more information on this exciting element of the exterior work in our next construction update.
