Please be advised that DEXEL will be pouring and finishing concrete on site tomorrow Sept 3 2015. Delivery of concrete will begin after 9am to accommodate the first day of school and finish before 3pm. Work on site may continue after hours to facilitate finishing of concrete if required.
In response to traffic concerns on Russell St. Dexter will be staging trucks on Vincent St and adding extra personnel to help direct truck traffic. We hope that this change will help to reduce congestion
In response to concerns raised regarding increased traffic on Kaye st. as a safety concern for students of SJAM School, Dexter will be rerouting all trucks until the end of this school semester to avoid the block of Kaye St. between Gottingen and Vincent.
Please Note: St Joseph's Square Construction (excavation) is scheduled to commence on Monday, May 25th.
QA 1. If there is more information on this project (e.g. a Council approval) With regards to council approval, this project has been approved with the current massing of the building. We will look into posting a link on the page, I think that it is a good suggestion. At this point in the development of the project and with work slated to start in the next couple of weeks the public consultation and design phase of the project are complete so at this time there are no plans to alter the building massing or height. The current massing was a result of many previous public consultations by the previous owner of the property. To your point this will be a larger building than what is currently on the block, however it is in keeping in size with other development currently slated, such as new developments on Young, Stadacona and Robie St. 2. Glad that it is focused on a range of family sizes. I bet you could attract families with kids if the apartments were the right size and reasonably affordable. Great neighbourhood for kids. With regards to attracting families we always strive to produce products which translate the best value and quality to the resident. This can be seen in many of our past projects such as the Vic, Vertu, W-Suites, The Waterford, South St., Tower Apartments, Greenvale Lofts and most recently Avonhurst. We hope that our product attracts families in the neighbourhood and the 10 town houses designed into the ground level of the building speak to that desire. 3. There are a lot of people walking in this area. Anything that this project could offer in terms a bit more sidewalk space and attention to ped. friendly design would be an improvement (especially after years of the fence and pit). As for increased sidewalk space, there will be a significant increase to sidewalk width on Gottingen in front of the commercial portion of the building, Kaye and Russell will also experience increased walking space with the replacement of a portion of the grass median with pavers. 4. It is a bit odd that the primary address is not Gottingen Street. I assume that is for marketing reasons, but this will be a positive addition to the street and most of its mass faces Gottingen. Finally with regards to the address, we felt that Kaye St was a quieter and more neighbourhood oriented address for the residential portion of the building. The decision to put the main entrance on this street also allowed us to dedicate a larger portion of the Gottingen streetscape to commercial which is not only a more desirable commercial front but will help to animate the building and the neighbourhood. This approach is also in keeping with the Hydrostone neighbourhood design with commercial on the main street scape and residential addresses behind.
