Since our last look at Scala, the on-site construction team has continued work on the forming of the building’s infrastructure. Forming is the process of laying out the structural components of each floor, including the walls and columns, before concrete is poured over-top, securing everything in place The teams on site are currently forming the 19th floor, and we are anticipating forming to be completed in summer 2021.
Inside, the interior finishing has begun. Suite finishing is currently taking place on the fifth floor, as well as within the common amenity spaces for the community.
Scala’s Evolving Exterior
Scala’s distinctive white exterior is coming to life as the building envelope is applied. The prefabricated precast components and windows have been installed up to the 8th floor, really defining the stepped terraces of the building’s architecture.
As the weather starts getting warmer and the lush green foliage surrounding Scala starts to bloom, the construction teams continue working on the exterior landscaping of the community. Scala’s team have recently completed the stairs and ramps connecting the park to the courtyard and are currently working on paving.
Building Stronger Communities
With work on the townhomes just north of the condominium recently completed, the community is beginning to welcome its first residents back into the Leslie Nymark community.
In tandem with this milestone, Tridel, Toronto Community Housing (TCHC) and The STEPS Initiative recently announced plans for the public art component of the neighbourhood. Toronto-based graffiti artist Jessey Pacho has been selected to create a new, large-scale public art piece that reflects the character, culture and history of the community. Working with Leslie Nymark residents in the design, this public art installation will create a sense of community, drawing Nymark residents in the design, this mark residents in the design, this mark residents in the design, this public art installation will create a sense of community, drawing on the past and shaping a vision for the future.
