This will most certainly change people's lives, hopefully for the better, but it's going to change and enhance the neighbourhood as well; the complex that was torn down was downright depressing...

Construction set to begin on Centre for Addiction and Mental Health redevelopment
Excavation is scheduled to get under way shortly at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) site in downtown Toronto in advance of construction of three new buildings on the 27-acre campus.
This phase of the redevelopment project will see construction of the seven-storey Gateway Building, the six-storey Intergenerational Wellness Centre and the eight-storey Utiliities and Parking Building.
Carillion Health Services has signed a contract with CAMH to design, build, finance and maintain this phase, 1B, of the project, which also includes construction of internal roads, site services, tunnels and landscaping.
Demolition of the existing Administration Building is nearing completion, said Ralph Tulipano, vice-president of infrastructure construction at Carillion.
The team includes Carillion’s fully integrated construction and facility management divisions as well as Stantec and Scotia Capital Inc.
The project will be the province’s first LEED Gold healthcare facility.
Carillion said key construction challenges include incorporating a two-storey-high gymnasium structure within the reinforced concrete Gateway Building, constructing the parking garage and other facilities adjacent to an existing operating healthcare facility, linking the buildings via an underground tunnel network and controlling dust, noise and vibration on a downtown site.
Subtrade contracts have been awarded to Sprint Insight, Vipond Fire Protection and Guild Electric and Siemens. Award of the excavation contract is pending, said Tulipano, who is overseeing the project at Carillion.
Construction of the new buildings is expected to be completed in 2012.
CAMH has been planning the redevelopment for almost a decade. It is intended to transform the site into a modern and welcoming “urban village” in the heart of Queen Street West.
“The buildings are designed to be transparent, to bring natural light on to all floors, bedrooms and treatment rooms, to afford clients a variety of choice over their surroundings, from access to private courtyards and terraces to new public parks,” said Alice Liang, a principal in Montgomery Sisam Architects, part of the Community Care consortium responsible for preparation of the campus master plan.
“The new design creates an environment that focuses on wellness and recovery, that is welcoming and home-like, calming and therapeutic. What is most exciting about this project is that the healing environment is truly integrated within a vibrant neighbourhood in the city.”
Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with CAMH to redevelop the hospital. Carillion achieved financial close in December.
