Construction is well underway on JAC Condos on Jarvis Street just south of Carlton Street in downtown Toronto. The crane, jointly developed by Graywood Developments and Phantom Developments, was installed last month and the pit for the two-story underground car park is now 90% excavated, with the support structure already complete. There will be 99 parking spaces in the basement, divided into 77 for residents and 22 for visitors.

The current construction site order is the formwork for the enclosing walls and columns of the second level. Walls and columns currently being shuttered are located on the west side of the second basement level of the building. Once all the walls and columns of this level have been completed, the slab of the first parking level can be shuttered and work continues with the shuttering of the walls and columns for the upper level.

While formwork is being carried out on the lowest level, waterproofing and underground drainage are also being worked on.
Above-ground formwork is scheduled to begin on site sometime next month as the tower works towards its final height of 34 stories. Designed by Turner Fleischer Architects, the condominium will feature a 10-story podium and will house a total of 489 residential units, including five townhouse units, which will be located on Mutual Street.

Another important part of the development is the heritage restoration component, which will see the existing historic facade of the 1865 historic Beaux-Arts style home on site – known as the Sheard Mansion – integrated into the base of the condominium that will become the will be home to the building’s recreational facility.

A mix of materials is planned for the podium, which is intended to complement the listed building. These include dark red bricks, white precast concrete and windows framed in a white aluminum material.
Above, the tower portion of the building will feature window walls accented by a similar white aluminum material, as well as metal panels and sections of purple and dark red parapets.
