The construction of eCondos isn’t the only new development along Yonge and Eglinton. Area residents have also been witness to the expansion of public transportation through The Crosstown, a light rail transit line that will run across Eglinton Avenue between Mount Dennis and Kennedy Station.
The project, conceived in 2007 is slated for completion in 2021 and will consist of a 19-kilometre corridor (including a 10-kilometre underground portion) composed of 25 stations and stops linking to 54 surface bus routes, three subway stations and GO Transit lines. The Crosstown project will also include the design of fully accessible stations, upgrades to streetscaping, trail and pedestrian connections as well as providing the largest single expansion of bicycle parking in Toronto.
Tunneling was completed in August of 2016 seeing LRT activity shift to the construction of future Crosstown stations, part of which includes the closure of the underground pedestrian tunnel at Yonge Street and Eglinton leading from the Eglinton TTC subway station to the Riocan Yonge-Eglinton Centre. Although it will mean an increase in pedestrian traffic both above and below ground, access to area businesses still will be maintained.
Patience has been a virtue for area residents during this new transit expansion, but it remains an exciting project which will connect urban dwellers (including those at eCondos) directly the best the City of Toronto has to offer from workplaces and educational institutions to fine dining and entertainment. The Eglinton Crosstown LRT will provide an even greater convenience to homeowners making condo living in the Greater Toronto Area even greater.
With several exciting projects underway there’s always incredible progress in construction to report on.
The canvas can now be unveiled with the completion of Exhibit. This unique residence designed as four architectural cubes is now fully complete and registered. All of Exhibits’ spaces are open and complementing its neighbour the Royal Ontario Museum.
At 1 Yorkville, the ground floor framing to the 2nd floor of the tower is being finalized. 1 Yorkville finds itself among several heritage properties in Toronto which are currently undergoing restoration. BAZIS is currently working on stabilizing the structures for the next stage in construction. Maintaining these historic properties adds to the beauty and charm of our neighbouring communities.
Incredible advancements are happening on the two towers of eCondos at Yonge and Eglinton. Window installation is taking place on the 22nd floor of E8 along with forming on the 26th floor and suite work on the 18th floor. E15 is also seeing the installation of windows on the 7th floor and steady progression on the forming of the 16th floor and suite work on the 5th floor.
Be sure to keep checking back for more exciting updates on the unique designs that continue to change the landscape of Toronto.
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!
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.
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
Summer has come to a close and it’s been awhile since we last updated you on the progress of our projects. The last time that we checked in it was in the spring and we’ve certainly seen some growth since then. We’ve been busy working away on our active projects from 1 Yorkville to E Condos up at Yonge and Eglinton. Continue reading
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.
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!
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.
Stay tuned for more updates to come!
There’s something about that hint of Spring in the air that just makes you want to be a better person. Now that the snow has melted, and your parka has been packed away until next winter, the opportunities to get outside and explore have arisen. Why not make a healthy living pledge this Spring – there’s really no excuse not to. Especially if you live in the Yonge and Eglinton area. With plenty of juice bars, healthy eats, and places to get active, your new healthy life is just a few steps away.
2015’s coming to a close, but we’re busy as ever at E Condos, our newest high-rise at Yonge & Eglinton! The last time we updated you, we’d just completed the raft pour of the crane:
Since the crane’s been up, we’ve gotten to work on the South and North Tower. We’re thrilled with the progress we’ve made so far – check it out!
Slab on grade is in progress! “On grade” essentially means above ground, meaning that we’re hitting ground level now and soon you’ll be able to see real vertical progress on this site. Vertical walls, columns and slabs are also near completion.
Tiebacks are still in progress on the north tower. Tiebacks are rebar, which is used for structural support when pouring the foundation. The upper tiebacks are complete, but the lower ones are still in progress.
That’s our last E Condos update of 2015! We’re looking forward to getting 2016 off to a swinging start at E Condos.
