    Toronto Bathurst Quay Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | Kearns Mancini

    Gratitude to the UT’ers who were able to join one of our Doors Open tours this weekend, and also for saying hello. Special thanks to @rdaner for dropping off pastries! If anyone is interested in a hard hat tour behind the scenes, the TSA is organizing a Corleck/Bathurst Quay Common/silo tour on...

    Toronto Spadina Pier Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto

    It’s not a perfect analogy, but consider the differences in monitoring/maintaining/repairing the foundation of a house with a finished versus unfinished basement. Similarly, absent public access and/or commercial uses inside the existing structure, there are simpler methods available to maintain...

    Toronto Spadina Pier Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto

    The intent below grade is that it become a restricted access space solely for routing and maintaining the utilities that service the new park and the existing marina. We will also explore the feasibility of re-purposing part of the space for park maintenance/storage uses. So the structure will...

    Toronto Spadina Pier Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto

    Yes! The PFR consultation team is hosting a ‘pop-up’ consultation booth both Saturday and Sunday this weekend, generally (weather permitting/contingent) between 11am and 4pm. Intent is to take advantage of foot traffic from Doors Open, much as we did for an identical ‘pop-up’ event during last...

    Toronto Bathurst Quay Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | Kearns Mancini

    For anyone interested: I’ll be leading several walking tours in May of the City’s various Bathurst Quay revitalization projects. First one is the evening of May 7 as part of a recurring Speaker Series hosted by Waterfront for All. We’ll be discussing and visiting both the silo property and...

    I found that bridge a little ‘stuck up’. I’ll see myself out.

    Toronto Bathurst Quay Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | Kearns Mancini

    @70Challenger is right on. There’s a number of reasons for the uneven texture in certain places. First of which is the original construction method, since the silos were formed and poured in layers. So there have always been distinct horizontal bands of varying tones and textures which you can...

    Toronto Bathurst Quay Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | Kearns Mancini

    Big concrete pour on Wednesday for Bathurst Quay Common’s water’s edge terrace. We’ll start to strip the formwork on Monday, followed by structural steel and Silva cells (for the trees to be planted in/through the deck) installation. All leading up to start of carpentry work in May.

    Thank you. Our whole silo team (City of Toronto; Moon-Matz Engineering; Brook Restoration; ERA Architects; Best Painting) is really proud of these results. And we’re just getting started! 😄 New architectural lighting is being installed and commissioned with the adjoining new park, Bathurst Quay...

    Right on schedule, on Thursday the last of the scaffolding was removed from the east elevation, thus fully revealing the completed repairs.

    Including the Federal GIBC funding announcement this was nearly $7M in new funding for the Corleck, which the Canada Ireland Foundation has been working to secure over the last 2 years. A huge milestone for this project which is sure to become a busy four-season anchor in the heart of the new...

    A quick and sincere thanks for the recent and much too generous feedback. This has been a passion project for several years, and to know the work is appreciated by the UT community means a tremendous amount. Sharing a few update photos. Another big concrete pour for the park coming up after...

    We’re actually replicating the silo font for the park’s gateway signage and site furniture branding. Mock ups coming soon!

    Correct! When Moment Factory did our silo projection feasibility study (with thanks to the Waterfront BIA for funding that work), they reviewed and signed off on the new tint colour.

    Take a bow, @bgobgo . After a feasibility review, we've just issued a change order to include one additional spotlight on this north elevation of the north silo. This was a great suggestion and we thank you for it. So now when you see the north silo illuminated from Queen and Portland, you...

    Scaffolding removal in progress on the east side of the north silo. The new sign is looking great. And form work underway in the new park.

    Toronto Bathurst Quay Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | Kearns Mancini

    Thanks, our team is really pleased with the sign results. Yes, we’ve already installed a short catwalk up top to connect the two rooftops, since the north silo’s ‘head house’ relies on the south silo’s interior stair for access. See attached photo. You’ll start to see this new connection from...

    Toronto Bathurst Quay Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | Kearns Mancini

    From yesterday. The final “NG” on “MALTING” will be completed in the Spring. Reason is that this last section overlaps with and requires use of the mast climber, which is presently tied up supporting roof and tower repairs. The pile of concrete you see beside the Corleck are the last...
