RE:  30 Charles / 730 Yonge Residential and Retail Improvements – Update 1

Work continues to progress on the 30 Charles/730 Yonge Residential and Retail improvement project. The first phase which consisted of the abatement of retail corridors and floors within the loading dock mezzanine room is complete.

The General Contractor for the main phase of construction mobilized on April 19 and are currently working on selected demolition such as removal of finishes and mechanical and electrical demolition. This work produces low to moderate noise.  As mentioned previously, there will be periods of noisy work which must take place within the former Burg’s Restaurant and KFC spaces. The first work of this type will occur the week of May 10 and should take approximately 3-4 days and is restricted to the hours of 9am-noon. We are still waiting for the General Contractor to provide a main schedule in order to provide an overall outline of the project. An updated communication with a better understanding of dates will be issued as soon as this is provided. Main contract work is expected to be substantially complete by the end of September 2021.

Updates will continue to be posted throughout the building and messaged to the Residence team and the Tenant’s Association Executive for distribution. Electronic updates will be communicated via email and on our website as well.

We ask for your continued patience and understanding as we make these necessary improvements to our facilities. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at charles.street@utoronto.ca
