Yorkville Village (formerly Hazelton Lanes Mall) lies in the tony neighbourhood of Yorkville in Toronto. The mall features high-end fashion boutiques and grocery stores, as well as a luxury fitness centre.
We were involved in a complete renovation of the mall, upgrading all mechanical systems in the mall and retail spaces while maintaining functionality of the mall and the condominiums attached to it. Our exceptional project management skills came into play during this challenging multi-phase project, including the provision of temporary services to avoid service interruptions.
We also provided a building automation system for the mall. Over a two-year construction schedule, we installed Distech Controls systems for the base building and its tenants. To align with the drawn-out construction timeline, we created an “as-we-go” implementation plan. Once overall construction was completed, we connected these systems into an integrated network – this is in contrast to the more typical method of configuring the entire system from a central server. The system is viewable from mobile devices to make it even easier for tenants and mall management to operate.
On an ongoing basis, we provide ongoing HVAC maintenance to the mall, as well as installing and providing training on stand-alone systems on a tenant-by-tenant basis.
Yorkville Village is targeting LEED certification for Core and Shell Development. The project reached substantial completion in December 2017.
