What we are doing and why

Beginning on Monday, June 22, contractors hired by CreateTO will be undertaking geotechnical testing, including borehole drilling, in the south-east corner of the TTC Danforth Garage Yard located at 1627 Danforth Avenue. The work is part of the Housing Now Phase 2 redevelopment project approved by Toronto City Council.

Work hours and timeline

  • Work is expected to take place Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. from June 22 to July 3, weather permitting.
  • Subsequent phases of investigation on the property will take place later in the year.

What to expect

  • Nearby residents may hear noise and feel vibrations related to the borehole drilling and the use of hydro-vacuum trucks and other equipment. Efforts will be taken to keep noise to a minimum.
  • Equipment, work trucks and contractors will be present in the south-east corner of the lot.

Thank you for your understanding as CreateTO undertakes these tests.
