Immediately east of Toronto’s iconic Maple Leaf Gardens, construction is well underway at Axis and at Stanley Condominiums on Church Street, between Wood and Carlton. Both condos are being built on a former low-rise sites, previously occupied by a parking lot and low-rise commercial building respectively. Seen below, Axis Condos’ deeper excavation pit has taken shape at the north end of the block, while work on Stanley Condominiums’ is underway on a narrower site to the south.
Since our last report, construction has progressed fairly rapidly at Axis Condos, where excavation work is already nearing completion. Pile-and-lagging shoring wooden walls have been installed as the pit grows deeper.
A project by CentreCourt Developments, Axis Condominiums is set to rise 38 storeys at 400 feet (122 metres) with 541 residential units. The mixed-use condo is designed by Page+Steele/IBI Group Architects and will feature a six storey-storey podium with retail at grade.
