Construction at Yonge and Eglinton’s newest landmark, eCondos, is well underway.

Soon, these towers will soar above midtown Toronto and we are seeing great
progress, thanks to improved weather conditions. We are now forming the 14th floor of the south tower; and window installations have begun on the 5th. On the north tower, the 6th floor has also started to take shape.

These two beautiful towers will be a coveted address at Yonge and Eglinton
as residents will be enveloped by the finest dining, shopping, and entertainment that Toronto has to offer, either in the neighborhood or across the city without even having to go outside, via underground access to transit.

eCondos boasts a host of incredible features and inspired design by renowned
architect Rosario Varicalli. The bustling community outside transitions into a tranquil living environment, as residents make their way through the sleek, contemporary lobby into the luxury of their breathtaking suites. They will also find a party lounge
and fitness facility located on the 4th floor; while the 31st will house a glass cantilevered pool lounge, the first of its kind in Toronto!

Stay tuned for more updates!

Construction Updates: Summer Edition

Summer has come to a close and it’s been awhile since we last updated you on the progress of our projects.

We’ve been busy working away on our active projects from 1 Yorkville to E Condos up at Yonge and Eglinton. Continue reading

E Condos: June Construction Update

It’s been a while since we last checked in on the progress at E Condos! The last time that we checked in with our site at Yonge and Eglinton was back in not-so-snowy December. Before that, you may recall the video of the raft pour for the crane. We’re excited that a lot has changed since then.

South Tower

Things are really coming together! You can see the the south tower has really come along since the last update. In December, we were just hitting ground level or “above grade” and working on vertical walls, columns, and slabs. We’re currently forming the Ground Floor Mezzanine and you can see how that’s shaping up in the photo below!

North Tower

Over in the north tower, we were working on the tiebacks the last time that we checked in on the project. Since then, we’ve moved on to working on the parking. The formwork is progressing at the P1 parking level at the north tower and we’re eager to keep on building. Things are looking great over on the site.

October Update From E Condos: Watch Our Raft Pouring

We have so many exciting updates coming out of our bustling E Condos site at Yonge and Eglinton! Now that the crane is in and the foundation is laid, we’re all ready for the next stage – the raft pour.

In the below video, you can see our bustling site after night falls, where we’re pouring concrete to create the raft slab. Make sure you hit HD so you don’t miss a thing!

 

 

A raft slab, or raft foundation, is a style of foundation that uses steel bars to reinforce cement for a super-strong and durable base. This is one in several steps we have to take to ensure that E Condos will be safe, strong, and standing for years to come. It won’t be long until we start to develop above ground, but for now we’re not cutting any corners in ensuring our foundation is as strong as we can make it.

October Construction Update: E Condos

Welcome to the October construction update for our Yonge and Eglinton project, E Condos! We’re so excited for this development to begin taking shape, and now that our crane is in, progress is coming faster than ever! You might remember about a month ago, we shared this mini construction update where we explained how to install a crane:

In the six weeks since then, we’ve been full steam ahead. Check it out!

Here’s another shot of our crane arm going up. We use a removable hydraulic crane to assemble our permanent one, which will be much stronger & suited for the big jobs we’ve got coming up.

In this photo, you can see the tieback drilling in progress. Tiebacks are rebar rods that are installed to add strength to the building’s foundations.

Above, you can see the elevator shafts being dug as well as raft slab excavation. Raft slabs are another key part of a buildings foundation, strengthened with concrete beams on either side. This is a huge undertaking, but extremely important!

Here, a few weeks later, you can see the raft slab has come along nicely! It has been completely laid, and reinforcing rebar is being placed on top for more strength.
