Project description

4 The Kingsway Condominium is a new luxurious apartment complex located at 2800 Bloor Street West, Toronto. The 34 unit condo will stand 8 storeys high, and are surrounded by historic homes, parkland and shopping facilities.

As the northern part of the building sits adjacent to the underground TTC rail line, vibration isolation was a main criteria and issue for the structure. Hence, mageba supplied a complete solution for the building’s isolation to support the foundation walls, slab walls and columns.
