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!

Queen’s Landing Construction Update!

Thanks to this relatively mild winter the work onsite at Queen’s Landing has been proceeding quite well! If you’ve driven by the site lately, you’ve no doubt seen the excavation activity and the heavy earthmovers busy at work through the last few months!

Site servicing is advancing at a rapid pace. As you may remember from our post back in the fall, the site servicing team had cleared the site and started installing the sewers and watermains and prepared the site for road work. An now the sewer installation is expected to be complete within the next few weeks. Once the underground lines have been laid and the topsoil graded over, the team will start on the road construction process, which we expect will be finished by spring.

Once site servicing is complete, Minto’s construction team can come in and start building your homes! We can’t wait to see more of the Queen’s Landing community take shape in the coming months. Stay tuned for more construction updates!

Demolition in Yorkville

If you’ve been by the intersection of Cumberland and Bellair lately, you will have noticed that the old office building is coming down as we start to prepare for the construction of Minto Yorkville Park!

Demolition of a structure like this takes careful planning and execution and the demolition team is following a step-by-step engineered process to bring down the old building at 94 Cumberland.

Minto Yorkville Park

The first step of the process was considered largely non-structural & prepatory partial demolition. The demolition crew removed and disposed of any unnecessary equipment and materials including non-structural walls throughout the building.  An opening was cut through each floor to erect the tower crane that will assist in the demolition process such as removing the exterior precast panels of the building as well as bringing down debris.

Minto Yorkville Park

Next, the demolition contractor will begin to lower the building to the top of the third floor slab using small demolition equipment, which will be operated on the floors of the building. The remainder of the building will be demolished to ground level using demolition excavators equipped with shear, grapple and hammer attachments.

Minto Yorkville Park

Once the building has been leveled to grade, the crew will demolish and remove the existing foundation of the building, demolishing while backfilling to facilitate the start of excavation & shoring for Minto Yorkville Park.

We’re looking forward to seeing the progress on site at Minto Yorkville Park! We’ll continue to keep you in the loop on construction as the building starts to take off.

Construction is Hot at Minto30Roe!

This summer has been hot, just like construction at Minto30Roe! The tower is taking off, and is now rising above the Yonge and Eglinton neighbourhood. You’ve probably seen it if you’ve been by the area – it looks exactly like our rendering! Life mimicking art, isn’t it beautiful!

Minto 30Roe Construction

The construction team is now pouring concrete for the 25th floor. The pours are coming along quickly thanks to the fly forms being used to help pour concrete on each floor. The windows have been installed up to the 16th floor, making the exterior of the building look almost finished up to these floors!

Minto 30Roe Construction

Inside the building, lots of work is going on to creating the interiors of your future home at Minto30Roe. The corridors of each floor have been framed up to the 10th floor. The suites are also coming along quickly and have been framed up to the 6th floor, making the suites come to life with their individual rooms. The drywalling team is following up framing, now drywalling up to the 3rd floor suites.
