Lower Junction Construction Update

West Towns – 20 Perth Avenue

Work on the exterior of the West Towns has progressed significantly. Installation of brick masonry is now complete on the west side of three of the four blocks of townhouses. Work continues on the west side of the southern block and is progressing to the east facades, facing Perth Avenue.

Construction of the garages, located on the west side of the townhouses, is underway. Future residents will access the private garages via a paved private laneway that connects to Perth Avenue.

Interior work continues in the townhouses with the installation of drywall within the individual units.  

NOTE: Municipal servicing work is expected this summer. Once we have a firm schedule for the servicing work, we will circulate a printed notice and post the information on the project website.


Auto Building – 158 Sterling Road

The new service lane around the Auto Building in now in place, with paving completed on the south and west side of the building. Paving work on the northern section of the lane is in progress. The service lane is accessed solely from Sterling Road and is designed to accommodate garbage trucks and other service vehicles for the heritage building only.

As work on the Auto Building moves closer to completion, some of the restored exterior details are becoming visible, such as the north and south stairwell exits that face Sterling Road.

Interior finishing is nearing completion for the two glass additions on the west side of the building. These will provide access to the lobby area on the ground floor, as well as to the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto Canada (MOCA)’s ground floor café.

Work continues on the main floor to complete the final interior finishes. The Auto Building’s original ground floor bi-folded doorways along Sterling Road have been preserved and restored. The heritage doorways have been installed along with the new exterior glass doors.

MOCA will have its international grand opening on September 22, 2018.
