Overall:

The building is substantially occupied though move-ins continue at L Tower. Suite and interior work continues on the few remaining unfinished units.

The tower crane remains in-place as the final work to install the rooftop maintenance unit is underway but has not yet been completed. We expect to have an update in the latter part of the month on timelines for the lowering and removal of the tower crane.  Please check back for updates.

Tower Crane:

The exterior tower crane will remain up for the first part of the month. Work to complete the the permanent maintenance platform for the building is underway. Completed delivery of the derrick which will be used to move the final sections of  the maintenance platform into into place is expected soon. Once it is ready it will be  lifted to the top of building by the tower crane. 

Once the tower crane’s final major job is completed the process of lowering it and taking it away will begin. 

We expect to have a more precise update on progress and timelines by mid-month.

Sony Centre NW Plaza

Work on the northwest plaza of the Sony Centre, immediately north of the L Tower should commence this spring, as soon as consistent weather permits. Once again we’ll post updates here once they become available.

NOTE for L Tower Residents

We get enquires from L Tower residents about the progress of internal work in the building. While we are happy to direct these enquiries to the appropriate people, please note that the purpose of this site is to provide construction information to external neighbourhood stakeholders, particularly in the immediate St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood.
