Looking Ahead

The week of February 3 will the first hoist–external construction elevator–installed on the western frontage the building, facing Front Street East. The plan is to load in the material for the hoist via the eastern Front Street East gate. Unloading and set-up of the hoist will happen on-site. This will minimize impacts on pedestrian and vehicular traffic. However, while the truck bringing the hoist equipment to the site is entering and exiting, there may be short disruptions to pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

It is anticipated that the second hoist will be installed in the late winter or early spring. We will provide information on this well in advance.
