Filling in: The underground parking level for the new The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) headquarters is filling in fast as construction of the 4-storey office building at Huntley & Isabella Streets moves along. Construction reached grade on the west half of the building in October, and is gradually catching up on the east side. When finished, the garage will have room for 50 vehicles.
KPMB Architects designed the ETFO building to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification. It will feature a green roof and storm water management, and will have several exterior deck terrace areas. Construction commenced during the summer and is expected to conclude in May 2013.
