The Development and Timeline

One 11-storey rental building and one 12-storey condominium building, connected by an eight-story podium with one-level of underground parking is being constructed by EllisDon Corporation at 409 Front Street East. In addition, this site will also include a row of townhomes along Cooperage Street and a five-story building fronting Cherry Street. The site is bounded by Front Street East to the north, Cooperage Street to the east, Mill Street to the south and Cherry Street to the west. The development, in its completed form, will consist of two residential towers with a total of 400 dwelling units, a five-storey training and education centre and a row of townhomes along the Cooperage Street frontage. The development will include a one-level underground parking garage that will encompass the entire site. Three loading docks will also take access from Cooperage Street.

Major construction activities and associated timelines for the development are described below: 

Excavation and shoring: January 2021 to December 2021; 
Below grade formwork: September 2021 to October 2022; 
Above grade formwork: October 2022 to April 2023; 
Building envelope phase: April 2022 to April 2023; and 
Interior finishes stage: October 2022 to September 2024.

Based on the information provided by the developer, the entire site will be excavated lot line to lot line on all four sides to a depth of 6 metres from street level. The developer has advised that due to limited availability of space, all construction activities cannot be accommodated within the site. Therefore, occupation of the road right-of-way on Cooperage Street will be essential to set up construction staging operations for the development.

The construction staging area will be set up within the road right-of-way on the west side of Cooperage Street for a period of 41 months.
Looks like indigenous hub will be not excavated for parking garage...
More info on this project's groundbreaking today:

The official launch of the Hub, located on a 2.4-acre property on Cherry Street, took place June 21, National Indigenous Peoples Day.

The project is a partnership of Anishnawbe Health Toronto (AHT), Kilmer Group and Tricon Residential. At build-out the site will contain the four-storey Anishnawbe Community Health Centre; the Miziwe Biik Training, Education and Employment Centre; a heritage building to be developed for commercial use by Dream and Kilmer Group; and two residences, the 13-storey Canary House condominium structure launched by Dream and Kilmer Group in February, and an 11-storey residential rental building to be developed by Dream, Kilmer Group and Tricon Residential.

The new health centre is scheduled to open by the end of 2022 while the other projects are targeted for completion in 2024.
didn't manage to snap a photo yesterday, but was sad to see they removed all the trees along the east edge of the site, presumably because roots interfered with shoring. those were some well developed, healthy trees..
That's REALLY too bad - they were maturing very nicely. I had actually emailed the City tree folk about their lack of protection last week - I guess they did not need any if they were slated for removal.
