ONE Water Street Construction Starts
More than 75 per cent of the homes in the first tower of ONE Water Street have been sold – and with the removal of the the “dirt pile” at the corner of Water Street and Sunset Drive, formal construction activity is set to begin. Test piling is due to take place the week of December 4, lasting five to six days.
“Building a development this large has to take place in a number of phases of course, starting with site preparation and the very first job is test piling which we have scheduled to take place next week. The crawler crane will be set up on Monday, with piling to start Tuesday and be in full swing by Wednesday, and we expect to be wrapped up this initial stage by early the following week,” says Leonard Kerkhoff, vice-president of construction for Kerkhoff Construction, which is building the project in partnership with North American Development Group. “Once we complete that and analyze the results, we should be ready to begin piling in earnest for the 36 storey tower in the New Year, with completion of the pile driving by spring.”
Occupancy is slated for 2020.
