Just a few steps from McGill street, on the corner of William and Queen, a new condo project is taking shape: 21e arrondissement.
Did you know that work began on this new Prével project on February 1st, 2014? Allow me to retrace for you the first steps of this new condo project.
February 1st marked the beginning of construction at 21e arrondissement, starting with the removal of asphalt covering the parking lot that previously occupied the premises.
By early May, support structures surrounding the excavation site were completed. This work is essential to holding the soil during excavation. It is during this phase that the three floors of underground parking were built.
Soon after, repair work had to be done on the underground of an adjacent building on William Street. Such work was necessary to maintain the foundations of the building during construction at our site.
In mid-May, the footings of the building were cast, laying the foundation of this great project!
On June 1st, the project reached an important milestone. It’s a moment that everyone likes to see: the construction crane being installed in the middle of the site. Soon enough, the structure of 21e arrondissement will take shape.
Since then, the concrete slab of the second parking level was cast in mid-June, followed by the ground floor during the past several weeks. As you can see in this photo, each slab corresponds to a new floor.
To be continued!
