Lower Junction Construction Update

West Towns – 20 Perth Avenue

Construction on the West Towns continues at a steady pace. Window installation across the site is now complete.

Preparation for the construction of the private garages and access lane that will be located to the rear of the site has commenced. This lane will provide vehicular access for residents and will connect from Perth Avenue. Prior to occupancy, all grading and paving will be fully completed for this area.   

Work on the interior of the town houses is currently underway.

The next phases of work will include the installation of masonry exterior, which will move from north to south across the site.

Municipal servicing work is now expected to commence late spring or early summer. As soon as the schedule for this municipal servicing work is finalized, a printed and digital notice will be circulated to the community prior to work commencing.

Auto Building – 158 Sterling Road

Work on the exterior of the Auto Building reached a milestone this past week with the removal of the external elevator (hoist). This is a major step forward as construction crews will now focus on completing the final elements in preparation for the official opening of the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto on May 26th.

Framing for the two glass additions, serving the ground floor café and lobby areas, along the western building face has been completed. The external glass curtain wall for the addition connecting to the lobby area has been installed. The glass addition connecting to the café space is scheduled to be installed in the coming week.

The final stage of installation and testing for the Auto Building’s west elevators is underway. It is expected that these elevators will be operational within the next two weeks if not sooner.

The upper floors of the Auto Building from 6 to 10 have been completed to a base condition. Final restoration work on a portion of the 9th floor slab is close to completion. Tenants of floors 6 to 10 are now able to fit out their spaces to suit their needs.
