4301 Kingston Road – Toronto Community Housing Corporation
Our office has been receiving many calls regarding the elevators at 4301 Kingston Road with concerns around the frequency of them being out of order.  We have contacted Toronto Community Housing and the Del Property Management Team with these concerns. We have been advised that, as a precaution site staff have emailed the contractor and cleaners to informing them that they are not allowed to use the elevators to free them up as much as possible for the tenants.  The elevators are scheduled to be replaced.
Project duration and scope:
• The project is set to begin January 2018, each elevator will be replaced one by one to ensure there are 3 elevators working.
• The materials are to be supplied in late 2017.
• This process will occur over a 43-52 week span depending on the difficulties that arise during their replacement.
• Things to be replaced are: Front return walls, Transom, Door posts, Kick Plates, Raise Reveals, Hand rails, Ceiling, Cab floor, Car Door Operators: Retain & refurbish existing Gal, MOVFR door operators Restricted Floor.
