UrbanToronto was at Fly Condos on Tuesday May 11 for the ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony of the 24 storey condo.
The event, attended by Empire Communities representatives as well as purchasers of the units in Fly, celebrated the decision to relaunch the building after the worst of the recent recession had passed. Empire were the first to test the waters to see if the market had turned for the better again, and this event attested that they were right.
Stephanie Lane, head of Empire's high rise sales led off the festivities:
Empire Communities President Daniel Guizzetti said a few words:
This is Fly's future site, a parking lot just west of Element condo's blank wall on Front Street. UrbanToronto far prefers buildings over surface parking lots and blank walls!
A tent was set up to protect the ceremonial groundbreaking from the rain.
On hand with shovels were Empire executives Rick Wolfe, Stanley Neinstein, Andrew Guizzetti, Paul Golini Sr., Daniel Guizzetti, Paul Golini Jr. and Enrico Leva.
