Through snow, wind, freezing rain, sleet and slush TORONTO’s enormous project, ‘The Well’, is going non-stop on Front Street at Spadina Avenue.
Several development companies and architects are involved in the project, which will contain a 36-storey office tower, six residential buildings, and 432,000 ft² of retail space. Spread over seven and a half acres, the development occupies space vacated by the Globe and Mail and car parks.

It’s a big one alright. 500 truck loads of rocks and mud are coming out of this giant pit every day. When finished in November, 690,000 cubic metres will have been trucked away. Nine excavators, three bulldozers and one loader are doing the job. <PHOTO by UT Forum contributor Keyz>
The excavation will reach a depth of 23 metres (75 feet) in the middle of the site – making room for loading docks and parking space for 1,732 vehicles. <PHOTO by UT Forum contributor AHK>

So here’s what’s going into that giant hole. THE WELL will be a mix of shops, premium office space, entertainment facilities and condos. Hariri Pontarini Architects, architectsAlliance, Wallman Architects, Adamson Associates.
