It has been a few months since demolition started clearing away the future site of Gairloch Developments and Centrestone Urban Developments' 383 Sorauren Avenue, and in the short time since, shoring piles have been driven into the ground, and excavation of the site is now moving along quickly.

Much of the site has now been excavated to a depth of one storey below grade, half way to the bottom of the building's two-level underground parking garage.

Once the excavation is complete, the next steps will be to install the concrete footings for a tower crane, and form work to get the garage foundation in.

The architectsAlliance-designed 10-storey condominium development will be clad in a red brick finish, meant to blend contextually with the historic warehouses and light industrial properties found in the surrounding neighbourhood. The development will offer 142 condominium units, ranging in size from 456 square-feet, up to 1,266 square-feet, with occupancy set to begin in the Fall of 2016.
