Back in January, we promised that shoring at Exhibit would begin in April and we’re happy to report that everything is going according to plan! All the buildings onsite have been demolished. The backfill and bulk excavation has started and the shoring will commence in about 2 weeks.

Late in January, we began the interior demolition work and Toronto had to say goodbye to their beloved Mc Donalds on Bloor and Avenue. Don’t worry though, the McDonalds will be back on the ground floor of Exhibit with a new sleek, European-style makeover.

A few weeks later, Toronto experienced one of its worst snowstorm in years. But that didn’t deter the TMG construction crew. They got up early and braved the icy conditions to continue the demolition work at Exhibit.
