2016 proved to be another record setting year in the real estate market with particular sales growth being experienced for condominium apartments followed by detached homes. Continue reading
The mild winter weather so far has really helped the pace of construction at E Condos. Both towers are well underway to redefining the Yonge and Eglinton skyline.
2016 has been a busy year for the entire BAZIS team with a number of projects taking shape. We kicked off the year with the finishing touches on Emerald Park, our iconic green glass towers located at Yonge and Sheppard. This striking and luminous architectural concept, dramatically punctuates the monochromatic skyline of North York.
As the year draws to a close we realize what that nagging thing in the back of our mind was reminding us to do. No, it wasn’t to buy a gift for the neighbour (we already did that), or to get the turkey ahead of time (did that too and it’s organic!). It was setting New Year’s resolutions! While resolutions can be a bit of an annoying or daunting task, it doesn’t hurt to set out some goals before the new year begins, in the hopes of making the most of the next 365 days. In case you’re stumped, here are some ideas for making New Year’s resolutions, and how to stick to them! Continue reading
As we enter the month of December we’re struck with one overwhelming thought: where has the time gone?! 2016 has been a big year for our on-the-go projects. Lots of changes and progress has been made on both our E Condo and 1 Yorkville sites. If you’ve walked past either in the past 365 days you can attest to the activity and great work being done. Both sites have required extensive excavation, but lots has happened since breaking ground. Continue reading
They say you learn something new everyday. Today we learned that another nickname for Yonge and Eglinton, is Yonge and Eligible, due to the soaring numbers of hip (and single) young professionals flocking to the area. Perhaps this explains the ever-expanding list of cool new spots opening up in the area. Whether you’re on the hunt for an after work drink, a spot to share a bottle with the girls, or perhaps a hip bar to take your next Tinder date to, Yonge and Eg has tons of places to wet your whistle.

Fresh has been a popular spot for vegetarians and vegans in the city and we’re lucky to have a location nearby at Yonge and Eglinton! And you don’t have to be a vegetarian to appreciate the delicious flavours and healthy dishes that they have to offer. They make living well taste really, really good. You may have seen some snaps of their food on Instagram before because, let’s face it, their fresh bowls are also really pretty.
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.

It’s been a month since we last updated you on E Condos, our project going up at Yonge and Eglinton – to see our last construction update, head this way.
Things are coming along in the E8 Tower! Tiebacks have been completed and excavation of E8 is down to the dewatering elevation, meaning the dewatering process will start this week! That means we’ve hit groundwater, which we’ll have to drain before construction can continue at E8.
In our last update, we mentioned that the E8 shoring was getting started. That’s since been completed, and the shoring at E15 is about 75% completed as of this week. That means tieback drilling – the process of reinforcing our build with steel rods – will commence when we’re done!
We can’t wait until this building gets above ground, but the foundational progress is some of the most important and we’re thrilled with the progress our amazing construction crew is making so far.
