Time to demo the last building on the site.

Indeed - and here it goes - taken this morning (Saturday, September 23). It turns out the delay resulted from the time required to negotiate a temporary encroachment agreement with the adjoining property, and then to notify the tenants of the planned work. I presume the alternative would have been to demolish the remaining structure by hand, with hand held jack hammers, etc.

Also, demolition and removal of the rest of the concrete base slab remaining at the north end of the site is expected to take another two to three weeks.

Apologies for the quality of the photo - sun was in the wrong spot, and hard to get a combination of close enough to show detail of the ramp being demolished, without losing overall perspective.

Much activity at the Well site going on today, Wednesday, September 27. The shoring rig now looks to be fully, or almost fully assembled, ready to start work. The first delivery of steel 'I' beams for the retention wall shoring holes arrived this morning, the steel beams can be seen to the left of the shoring rig. Meanwhile, the amount of activity to dig out, sort, and remove the remaining buildings and parking area ground slabs appears to have increased materially - all the equipment on site appears to be almost continuously active.

Photo from 2:30 this afternoon:

are they digging all projects simultaneously or office component will go first ?
The entire site will be excavated and the office and retail portion will be built as a single phase before turning the residential component over to Tridel, IIRC. This site is going to produce a massive amount of fill.

Demolition is again underway today, as it was last Saturday, of the remaining parts of the Globe & Mail structure which are immediately adjacent to the Stantec building at 401 Wellington. Hopefully demolition the of last remnants of the building may be completed this weekend, leaving only the rest of the parking area ground slab to be removed.

From today, Saturday, September 30:
