Work has begun on the 6-storey Canadian Westinghouse Building at the southeast corner of King Street and Blue Jays Way, crews have begun the delicate task of disassembling the building's south and east facades. The Westinghouse building's other two facades will be incorporated into the podium of Greenland Group's King Blue, but these particular walls will disappear into the new development.
The heritage north and west facades will be preserved in-situ—a task to be overseen by heritage specialists ERA Architects—becoming a distinctive element in the Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects-designed development which will include 48 and 44-storey towers in two of the corners.
Using work platforms installed along the south and east facades in November, workers are in the process of peeling away the outermost layer of bricks on the heritage structure, revealing the underlying brick and steel structural elements of the building for the first time since it was constructed in 1927.
