On Friday October 30th we celebrated as Minto30Roe reached its full height of thirty four floors!
Even though it was a cold and windy day, that didn’t stop an excited group of Minto employees who climbed to the top of Minto30Roe to view the spectacular sites from the rooftop!
To celebrate this exciting construction milestone the Minto team hosted over 200 trades staff for lunch in the soon-to-be Minto30Roe Party Room. On the menu? A hearty feast of a gourmet BBQ of course! (Click the link below to see the full event! )
Our Project Manager Michael Barber expressed his appreciation to the Trades for all their hard work on this Topping-Off occasion. After his speech he courageously volunteered to take a pie-in-the-face and invited all the trades, and some eager Minto employees to toss one at him for the Minto United Way charity campaign! Thanks for showing such great spirit Michael Barber; we absolutely share your enthusiasm for the fantastic progress at Minto30Roe!
Construction is well on its way and we’re just beginning to put the finishing touches on this beautiful building. Not only have we topped of but the windows are now installed up to the 29th floor, suites are being framed up to the 18th and the drywall is in up to the 9th floor! We’ve also begun, painting, tiling and installing. Metal panels around the podium are going in and the balcony railings are also well on their way!
On Thursday, July 5th minto775’s west tower reached its full height of twelve stories. The final concrete slab was poured and Minto topped off in style!
Reaching this exciting construction milestone is cause for celebration. The Minto team hosted over 200 trades staff for lunch on-site at the soon-to-be minto775 courtyard. On the menu – a gourmet BBQ, of course.
Keri Washer, minto775 project manager, spoke to all attendees saying, “It is a team effort and everyone involved played a big role in getting to this stage. The trades have been working non-stop in the blistering heat to ensure that construction is on target, and celebrating this accomplishment is one way for us to show our appreciation.”
The next big step in construction is topping off the east tower. Currently the upper level of the 2-storey penthouse units (the 17th floor) is being prepped for concrete to be poured. Window installation is already at the 9th floor and has played a big part in the overall exterior transformation of the building. Also, temporary waterproofing has been introduced up to the 7th floor to allow for interior suite finishing to begin on the lower levels. Look up the week of August 11th as the west tower crane comes down.
The progress at minto775 is really exciting and we can’t wait to see the changes over the next few months. Stay tuned for more construction updates!
