We’re finally seeing signs of spring at Minto Southshore. We made steady progress during the winter, but now that the weather is warmer, we’re looking forward to putting a little spring in our step and seeing even more progress at the site. Here’s an update on what we’ve been up to lately.
We’re continuing the concrete work for the front entry porches at blocks 6 and 7 and this will continue for the next couple of weeks.
Underground Garage Work
Enbridge is currently connecting the main gas line connections to block 5, 6, and 7. We’re also continuing the mechanical and electrical equipment finishing and painting the garages in block 6 and 7.
In the upcoming weeks, ceiling insulation will start in block 1 and 2 and we’ll start the installation of the garage signage, sprinkler system and garage lockers.
Excavation, site servicing and landscaping
The site servicing work is 95% complete and we’ve also completed the stone retaining wall at the garage entrance. In the next few weeks we’ll start the hardscape work along 24th street at block 1 and 2.
We’re making great progress with the townhouses. On block 1, we’ve finished installing the hardware and have moved on to the appliance delivery and installation. Over at block 2, we’re installing the kitchen countertops, mirrors and glass shower.
Meanwhile on block 3, the tile installation is 90% complete, the kitchen installation is 75% complete and the trim carpentry is in progress along with the painting and installation of the mechanical equipment and electrical and HVAC finishing.
On block 4 the drywall installation is 60% complete while over on block 5, the drywall installation is just starting. On block 6, the drywall fire separation installation is in progress and is also almost complete on block 7.
