We are happy to inform you that the residential towers were deemed essential and all construction has continued over the last two months. We are out of the ground with servicing and foundations well underway and the former parking lot has been dramatically transformed for our future podium parking garage. The foundation walls, podiums and elevator shaft continue to build height and we feel very fortunate that the affects of COVID-19 remain minimal as we are still on schedule for late summer installation of the tower crane and delivery of precast. The onsite construction team has adapted well to the changes and put many safety measures in place to protect the health of the workers while we move forward without delay.
In addition to the residential condominiums proceeding, our neighbours at Tapestry Hall and Foundry Brewing have continued to adapt to the current restaurant and hospitality restrictions. Both have come together to launch their Food & Beverage Delivery Service.
If you could use a night off from cooking and would like to support local, head to their website tapestryhall.ca to scroll through their delicious meal options. Not only are they offering chef-prepared, low-cost, healthy dishes but you can also add beer and wine to your order for the same price as the LCBO.
Beer and wine aren’t your thing? Foundry Brewing has the perfect product for you. On Thursday, May 15th Gaslight District will be taken over by the launch of Foundry’s newest product Hard Water – a low-calorie, gluten-free alcoholic beverage for easy-drinking. All you need to do is jump in your car, head down to Galt and come through our drive-through to receive a free 6-pack to sample. We’re dedicated to safely providing you with a great-tasting, exciting new drink just in time for the long weekend!
Beesley Art Installation
We are excited to announce that the highly anticipated “Meander” art installation by Philip Beesley is complete! Meander is a one-of-a-kind living architecture sculpture that continually moves in relation to the space in Tapestry Hall. The constant shifting and flowing is made to resemble the currents of the Grand River, which runs directly alongside Gaslight District. We are incredibly proud to display this jaw-dropping work from a former University of Waterloo School of Architecture faculty member and we will keep the residents updated with when you can come appreciate the installation in person.
