Take A Look At What’s Happening at Westside – Construction Update!

The Minto Westside team reached a very important construction milestone onsite this week – they erected the first tower crane! This is always an exciting time as it means that the concrete structure work will soon be getting underway! This crane is the first of 4 in total that will be required to construct the complete underground garage and the towers above, until September.

Building the final exit Ramp at the NE corner of the site

In early Fall, construction will be full steam ahead with the pouring of the first footings.  The team closely monitors and adjusts their process to ensure that they can get as much of the slab-on-grade poured before the winter arrives. It’s hard to imagine that winter is just around the corner with this beautiful warm weather outside, but the Minto team is always looking ahead to optimize activity onsite to expedite work!

Hoisting the Operators Cab

In the meantime, the start of foundation work has begun. The excavation and shoring trades are working on the North end of the site. Their work includes the installation of the last few tiebacks that act to retain the shoring system, as well as building the final exit ramp at the north end of the site.

Crane Tower Mast Erected and Prepped for Turntable & Boom Sections

This should be in place by mid next week, at which time removal of the ramp currently positioned at the middle of the site off Bathurst Street will commence. This will really open up the site and allow us maximum opportunity to continue the efficient pace of work that we have been able to take advantage of to date.

Sounds exciting, the site is sure busy with activity! A very special thank you to Keri Washer, Senior Project Manager for Minto Westside, for keeping us in the loop and always providing us with much anticipated construction updates!

Things To Do In The T.O This Summer: Toronto Centre Island

We love to make the MOST of what the city has to offer during these hot sunny days!

Toronto-Sunset-by-Loozrboy

Toronto has the best of city living and  when we’re looking for a retreat we don’t have to go too far, the islands are just a short ride away! Some of us have childhood memories of riding the ferry over to the island and seeing a new part of our amazing city. And for those of you yet to discover the gem across the harbor here is what you need to know!

ride-from-centreville

With over 30 rides and more than a dozen fabulous food options, the iconic Centreville Theme Park is a fantastic family getaway. Bumper boats, bumper cars, an antique carousel, and a farm where you can interact with mini- potbelly pigs, horses, mini ponies, sheep more! There is plenty to do for the whole family which makes it a great one stop destination for summer fun.

The island itself has over 600 acres of parkland with stunning views of the Toronto harbor, great for a picnic lunch, play mini golf around or give frisbee golf a try! You can even hit up one of the many beaches around the island and take a dip if you can brave the cold Lake Ontario waters!
