What work is Taking Place?

  • Pending TTC approval and City of Toronto permits, two properties along the Eglinton Avenue East corridor will be demolished to make way for construction at Kennedy Station to accommodate the new Eglinton Crosstown LRT Project.
  • The properties are located at 2433 (Tikka House property) and 2439 Eglinton Avenue East (Former Canada Post Building) on the south side of Eglinton Avenue East.
  • Both buildings will be demolished and the area will be backfilled to grade with soil that meets applicable standards.

Timing

  • Demolition works will last for approximately twelve weeks and are expected to start as early as mid-November, subject to approval.
  • Demolition work will occur Monday to Friday.
  • Work is permitted between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. The majority of the work will occur between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
  • Work could be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Every effort will be made to minimize any disruption to those in the area.
  • All work will be contained within the Former Canada Post Building and Tikka House property boundaries.
  • Demolition will be done by conventional methods, using machines with various attachments operating from the exterior of the building. 
  • Residents and businesses near the work site can expect to hear noise caused by trucks, machines, hand tools, mini-excavators, mini-loaders, and/or large excavators with specialized demolition attachments, such as shears, pulverisers, grapples and hydraulic hammers as required.

Traffic and Pedestrian Details

  • No traffic impacts are expected to complete this work.
  • Sidewalk and property access will be maintained. 
  • Please take care when travelling near construction areas. Watch for additional signs directing pedestrians as detours may be required.
