Lower Junction Construction Update

REMINDER: Please join for a community update meeting re: Lower Junction and 72 Perth Avenue on Thursday, March 22nd, 6:30 pm at the Lower Junction Gallery, 213 Sterling Road, Ground Floor.

West Towns – 20 Perth Avenue

Construction on the West Towns has been steady through the winter. 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 over the next couple of 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 Rd.

Work on the Auto Building’s adaptive reuse made steady progress through February. The office and administrative spaces for the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto on the 4th and 5th floors are substantially complete; remaining work on these floors is expected to complete in the coming weeks.

Drywall installation on the exterior walls has been completed from the 2nd to the 10th floors of the building. Floors 6 to 10 (not occupied by the museum) are being finished to base condition, permitting the tenants to put their own touches on the spaces they will occupy.

As we reported in our last update, the steel structure, which 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. The curtain wall glass that will finish these spaces is expected to be installed soon. We look forward to sharing images of these exciting spaces in a future update.
