Another milestone is approaching at the St. Clair Avenue West site of Madison Homes and Fieldgate Urban's ZIGG Condos. Since our last update on the project in June, the last month of work has seen the 11-storey, Kirkor Architects-designed condominium development's below-grade levels rise closer to street level, with the pouring of the ground floor now imminent for the eastern arm of the L-shaped site.

At the west end of the site, crews are currently in the process of forming the final below-grade floor, with supporting columns now in place for much of the level's western half. In the coming weeks, a scaffold will be erected for the installation of floor forms for the west side of the building's ground level, mirroring the current activity at the east side of the site.

The southern arm of the site follows closely behind the northwest third of the footprint, with rebar cages in place in preparation for the pouring of this portion of the P2 level.

Other changes since our last update include the recent installation of a covered pedestrian canopy along the site's St. Clair frontage, necessary to protect pedestrians from falling debris once the building rises above street level.

Once the project is above grade, the next milestone is anticipated to take place towards the end of the Fall, when work on the building's exterior envelope is slated to begin. Precast concrete panels will be the first cladding to be installed, to be followed by glazing. Once the lower levels are sealed off from the elements, trades will begin work on the building's interior spaces.
