The former Celestica HQ Campus located on the northwest corner of Eglinton and Don Mills Road in Toronto is being transformed into the large scale redevelopment known as the Crosstown Community. This 60-acre master planned will include eight condominium buildings, 30 townhome buildings, 300,000 sq. ft. of office space, restaurant sand cafes, more than five acres of parks and playgrounds and a sports and recreational community centre — all within easy reach of the newCrosstown LRT.
We have been an active participant in this major redevelopment from its early planning stages. We initially prepared a noise and vibration study for the entire Crosstown lands when the site was still home to Celestica. Since those initial reports, we have also provided noise studies and construction vibration assessments for several individual blocks.
At present we are providing comprehensive acoustical services for a development on Block 12 of the site. This project consist of three residential towers. Building 1 (West, 32 storeys,308 suites) and Building 2 (Centre, 39 storeys, 379 suites) is known together as “ONE Crosstown”. Building 3 (East, 34storeys, 370 suites) is being marketed as “Tower III Crosstown”. All three towers will rise from a common heritage podium which preserves part of IBM’s original landmark mid-century modern headquarters, opened in 1967.
This Block 12 development also includes a mid-rise building known as “The Crest at Crosstown” (8 storeys, 185 suites) and townhomes (18suites). We are now monitoring construction vibration on the heritage podium facade.
We are also involved with a commercial development on Block 1 at the site being marketed as’”Crosstown Place” a 9-storey office building with a ground floor that will include a retail unit, and a daycare.
