February 8 2018 Community Update

As you may have noticed, the Via Bloor site is currently enclosed with temporary fencing.

Our construction management plan was approved by the Toronto & East York Community Council on January 16, 2018, which allowed us to obtain our final hoarding permit. As such, the existing temporary fencing will now be repositioned to sit at the location where the permanent fencing will eventually be installed. Hoarding is necessary to ensure the site is secure and safe for you, your neighbourhood and us. The process of moving the temporary fencing will begin at the end of this week or early next, while the permanent hoarding structure is scheduled to be installed by early March.

You will further notice that the hoarding will close off the northern Howard Street sidewalk while also encroaching slightly onto Howard Street. This encroachment will not affect regular vehicular traffic.

In addition, with construction officially starting at the Via Bloor community, our Construction teams anticipate to begin shoring and excavation the week of February 19th. You may see a higher level of activity on the site, including the delivery of the equipment needed to complete this phase of the construction process.
