July 2020 Construction Update
Forming at the Via Bloor community has progressed significantly, as the podium’s concrete structure is now complete and the building’s infrastructure is well underway as we pour concrete on the 14th floor in the East tower and on the 10th floor in the West tower.
Both towers are now progressing on typical floor, with the East on 14th floor and the West on 10th floor. Precast and window installation have begun as we work on the building envelope (exterior walls).
Soon, we will begin the interior finishes for the Via Bloor community, starting with mechanical and electrical rough-in work for future plumbing, ventilation and electricity services, followed by the finer finishing details.
We will continue to update you throughout this project and let you know if our schedules change. Please check this page regularly. We will also email you these updates, so keep an eye on your inbox.
