We recently covered the ground breaking ceremony for Sixty Colborne, a 25-storey, architectsAlliance-designed condominium development by Freed Developments and Carttera Private Equities. The project met another early milestone today with the demolition of the sales centre, located on the northern end of the site at the southwest corner of King and Church. The demolition got under way this morning, and Forum contributor Roundabout was on the scene to capture the beginning of the process.

In the image above, captured this morning, we can see that the southern half of the condominium sales centre had been taken down, with just the northern half of the one-storey structure remaining. The process continued and by mid-afternoon the remaining half of the sales centre was down. Crews are now in the process of sorting and clearing the construction debris, some of which will be recycled.

With the sales centre now sitting as a pile of rubble, we can expect to see the start of the project's shoring and excavation phases in the very near future.

Completion of the development is currently slated for Summer 2017. Sixty Colborne will add 255 condominium units to the St. Lawrence neighbourhood, ranging in size between 440 square-feet and 2,325 square-feet. Residents will be situated within easy walking distance of the Financial District, St. Lawrence Market, the Sony Centre and countless other destinations and attractions in the core of the city.
