Garage Projects Start July 22

Parking Garage projects will commence on Monday July 22, 2019.

The scope of work will generally consists of roof slab expansion joint replacement, localized roof slab waterproofing repairs at four locations, and localized traffic topping repairs inside the garage.  Residents can expect vibrations, loud noises and dust from time to time.  Morguard will make every effort to minimize the impact on building residents.

The work will also require specific parking stalls be vacated and tenants relocated. Management will be reaching out to these tenants in the coming weeks once the locations have been determined.

Morguard will continue to update tenants as the project progresses with notices in the elevators, B1 and B2 levels.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the management office at 416-281-8109.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we continue to improve the building.

Passing of Zaldy Llorca Balde

zaldy

Zaldy Llorca Balde, our beloved neighbour, friend and building superintendent at 95, died Sunday May 19, 2019.

Zaldy leaves his beloved wife Diana, and their three children, Michael, 27, Jan Christine 24, and Zaldy Jr. 23.

Zaldy was a jovial, respectful, kind, thoughtful, and hardworking man, whose noble spirit has left an indelibly beautiful mark on us all.

We’re all going to miss him, his smile when greeting everyone, his gentle human touch in always asking how we were, listening and sharing his own life experience and perspective.

Wisdom shone through him, as did kindness, empathy, humor and a certain twinkle in his eye that intimated a conspiratorial infectious joy-fullness and love for people and of life.

Uncompromising in his insistence for respect of others and human dignity, Zaldy has earned not only our gratitude and respect, but also our genuine affection and earnest love.

The family has created a video to honour his memory.  You can view it here.

For those who would like to see Zaldy for the last time visitations are scheduled on Friday, May 24th from 2pm to 4 pm and 6pm to 8 pm. at the Trull Funeral Home at 1111 Danforth Avenue, On., M4J 1M5.

There will be a Catholic mass service on Saturday, May 25th at 2pm followed by a reception at 3pm to 5 pm.
