Construction Management Plan for 1700 Avenue Road
Demolition at this site for a 100-unit condominium with street-level retail spaces was completed in mid-2016. The following is a link to a recent article in Urban Toronto: http://urbantoronto.ca/news/2017/05/excavation-progressing-brookdale-avenue-road
A development of this nature requires that a Construction Management Plan (CMP) be prepared to provide details on how the developer will manage the construction, impacts and safety to the neighbouring community to ensure disruptions are kept to a minimum and safety always maximized. An extract has been prepared of this document Construction Management Plan for the Brookdale at 1700 Avenue Road.
The developer has committed to try to minimize disruption as much as possible but with a large project of this nature, events are likely going to arise where we will have to exercise patience. However, major and on-going issues should be reported to 311. Reporting an issue to 311 creates a log. Repeat calls signal a recurring problem to the City.
