L Tower update April 29 2016

L Tower construction information 8 The Esplanade – L Tower  Update April 29/16

The derrick has been successfully installed at the top of the L Tower. The north sidewalk along The Esplanade has been taped for safety reasons in preparation for taking down the tower crane.  We expect that there will be a vehicular road closure between Scott Street and Yonge Street in the latter part of next week in order to facilitate the removal of the tower crane. 

We will have an update next week.  Please check back for updates.

The exterior tower crane will begin being removed this coming week. As noted above we expect there will be a vehicular road closure between Scott Street and Yonge Street to enable a mobile crane to put on site and to ensure a safe removal of the tower crane.  The mobile crane will be used to lift and remove sections of the tower crane.

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.
