Wednesday June 15 Notice

The L Tower  Level 6 slab is now scheduled to be poured one Wednesday June 15 and it is anticipated working will go past 7:00 pm.

A note on concrete pours:

In relation to any concrete pour, after the trucks that have delivered the concrete leave, the construction crews must finish the freshly poured slab.  This process involves the concrete finishers waiting until the concrete hardens enough (1-3 hours sometimes more, depending on ambient temperature) to allow the finishing machines on top of the slab to provide a smooth level concrete surface.  If this were not done the concrete would harden creating a deficient structural component, jeopardizing the integrity of tower construction.

Concrete Pour, Tuesday June 7

The construction team wishes to apologize for any disruptions this may have caused last night, June 7, to residents in the area as there was an active concrete pour that went past 7 p.m. Efforts are underway to provide advance warning to local residents of concrete pours that may continue past 7 p.m.

All construction activities are to be carried out according City of Toronto by-laws and in particular the Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 591, Noise, respecting construction noise.

  • Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Saturday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Please note that these time restrictions do not apply to the continuous pouring of concrete or large crane work, however all reasonable efforts will be made to work with these standard hours whenever possible.

Drilling for shoring/caisson system expected to commence in 2 weeks

Metrolinx continues to work relocating fibre-optic cabling along the top of the 1 The Esplanade construction site on the railway embankment. Once this is completed it is expected that Domnius Construction will begin drilling for the shoring/caisson system in 2 weeks. The shoring/caisson system will reinforce the site to permit excavation prior to the construction of the foundation and the underground parking spaces for the L Tower.
