GROUNDBREAKING CELEBRATION AT REUNION CROSSING
Construction is Now Underway at St. Clair and Old Weston Rd.
After being postponed this spring, The Diamond Kilmer Team was excited to officially commemorate the construction (re)start at Reunion Crossing with a Groundbreaking Ceremony. Although the gathering was smaller than we originally planned, our excitement about this major milestone was as big as ever.

SITE PREPARATION & MOBILIZATION TO COMMENCE THE WEEK OF JUNE 1ST, 2020
Further to the Notice of commencement of works dated March 10, 2020 and Construction Mitigation Report, and due to the global pandemic that has affected lives and workplaces over the last 8 weeks, this letter is to advise you that site preparation and mobilization for the purposes of shoring and excavation for environmental remediation will now commence the week of June 1, 2020 at the site at 1808 St. Clair Avenue West.
Tucker HiRise, the Construction Manager for the site, has established a COVID-19 Prevention Health & Safety Plan which includes diligent prevention, detection and response measures and complies with the Canadian Construction Association’s COVID-19 Standardized Protocols for all Canadian Construction Sites, as well as the Province’s Guidance. Please note that all workers on site will maintain a safe distance from neighbouring properties and that any work on shared property lines will be communicated to individual homeowners ahead of scheduled works.
Diamond Kilmer Developments will work closely with the City of Toronto, Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks, and Ministry of Labour to ensure that all construction procedures are undertaken in compliance with applicable laws and by-laws. We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this excavation stage of works, and invite you to reach out to the Construction Hotline at 416-774-2650 should you have any questions or comments regarding the contents of this letter.

FIRST NOTICE OF UNAVOIDABLE DELAY
It is with great disappointment that we must advise that due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus that was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020, and as a result of the more recent emergency order implemented by the Province further restricting construction activities, our project has experienced and will continue to experience an unavoidable delay. We therefore had to postpone our Groundbreaking Ceremony on March 24th, 2020 and any further work on the site.
Your Purchase Agreement and the Tarion Addendum provide a protocol in the event of an unavoidable delay and we direct you to these. We have determined that while we are still in uncertain times, in an ever-changing environment and evolving reality, this pandemic has already and will likely continue to affect construction completion deadlines and the occupancy timing of your new home at Reunion Crossing.
At this stage, we know that we already have or will experience the following delays, which affect the construction and/or delivery of your new home:
March 17th, 2020
Please be advised that as a result of current Public Health recommendations regarding Covid-19, our Groundbreaking Ceremony on Tuesday, March 24th has been postponed until further notice.
Safeguarding the health of our homebuyers, staff, partners and community is of paramount importance to us. Please note that construction will proceed as appropriate, and we look forward to celebrating our progress with you as soon as possible.
Take care and be well.
