Situated at the edge of the East Don Parkland in North York, Amexon Development Corporation's 12-acre master-planned community The Residences at Central Park, designed by Core Architects, continues to evolve in the early stages of construction. Our last visit to the site was with drone footage in September, and today we return at ground level.

A wide view reveals the depth of the excavation for phase one, the west side closer to the camera being deeper and further into excavation. Orange tarp on the shoring walls catch any loose material and helps keep the pit dry. In the background, red excavators play a key role in these earthmoving activities.

Below, looking south from in front of the south building seen in the image above, this view better showcases how far into excavation the work is proceeding, while a shoring rig in the distance at the south end of the pit shows where shoring walls are still to be created.

As The Residences at Central Park continues its sub-grade work, we will continue to provide updates in the coming months. With 1,478 residential units set to rise amidst the East Don Parkland, Amexon's vision is becoming a reality. The development's proximity Toronto's vaunted ravine parklands and its quick access to Leslie subway station and the GO train, positions it between the natural and urban worlds.

UrbanToronto will continue to follow progress on this development, but in the meantime, you can learn more about it from our Database file, linked below. If you'd like, you can join in on the conversation in the associated Project Forum thread or leave a comment in the space provided on this page.
