Just one year ago, the mixed-use residential complex known as “101 York Road” was not much more than a hole in the ground. Today, Kinsley Construction welcomed Mosely Architects, Hope Furrer Associates, and many other design and construction team members for a topping out celebration. The post-tensioned concrete portion of the building stands nearly 133-ft and 13 stories above the street level, and extends 20-ft below ground. Approximately 500,000 square feet of structure has been built since the first shovel was put into the ground. The project, which will be dubbed “Aspen Heights” when it opens in fall 2020, features 11,000 square feet of retail space, four levels of structured parking, a 12,000 square foot courtyard, and 248 student apartments. The L-shaped concrete tower wraps around the raised courtyard and stands between two wood structures, measuring four-stories and a 5-stories respectively.
Today’s event was attended by all the many subcontractors and design team members that have come together to build this structure. The weather was a bit chilly, but there was plenty of shelter in the underground parking area, where barbeque was served. After a satisfying lunch, Nicole Baer and Tyler Graybill paused for a photo with their new tee shirts featuring a rendering of the building on the back.
