Yorkville Village is an existing mixed-use building consisting of an upscale, two-storey shopping mall, multi-level condos, and commercial office spaces, with associated below-grade parking over three levels.
Entuitive completed a revitalization of the existing Hazelton Lanes shopping mall, updating its facilities to re-establish the centre as a premier shopping destination. The shopping mall incorporates an extension to the upper levels, a new façade along Avenue Road, and reconfiguration of the interior atrium area to include a new feature skylight overhead.
In addition to the structural scope of work, Entuitive provided Building Restoration consulting services. Our team completed a condition assessment of the three-level parking structure and reported deteriorating concrete, expansion joints, traffic toppings, and foundation wall leaks and delamination.
Challenge: To address the behavioural changes to the structure resulting from both alterations to the existing framework and new-construction elements.
Solution: The existing building was modelled in Revit to enable efficient coordination of the structural design elements, including identification of areas that could be repurposed to allow for savings to project costs.
