Elevator Modernization Project

Find the latest information, schedules, and timelines on the Charles Street elevator modernization project. 

project overview

Elevator Modernization

In 2019, building condition assessments were conducted for Charles Street to inform how we prioritize major capital work, including upgrades to the elevators in both 30 and 35 Charles.  

To conduct this work, one elevator will be taken out of service at a time, and it is expected that it will take 10-12 weeks to modernize each elevator. As a result, the building will only have 2 operating elevators during this modernization period. Once an elevator is modernized and 100% complete, they will start work on another elevator.

Review the weekly schedule

Please note that elevator bookings can take place between 10am-4pm and 6pm to 10pm.

Upgrades

Elevator Features to be Implemented 

We understand that having one of our elevators out of service for a prolonged period is not welcoming news, but these repairs and upgrades are necessary as major components of the existing elevators are nearing the end of their lifecycle. We want to proactively improve the reliability and performance of this crucial equipment, and introduce modern features including: 

  • New cabin interiors, including new lighting, fans, and flooring 
  • New digital display screens in each elevator to communicate building events and maintenance alerts 
  • New LED button stations in each elevator and hall call buttons 
  • New controllers, motors, hoist ropes, door rollers, door operators, and travel cables 

 


wayfinding

Looking for the Stairs?

To assist with elevator traffic levels, we advise to take the stairs when/if possible. Below are two wayfinding maps to make accessing the stairs at 30 Charles easier.


Elevator Bookings

Weekly Schedule

With one elevator unavailable at 30 Charles for the foreseeable future, residents are advised to expect longer wait times. There may also be times when the service elevator is booked temporarily, leaving only two elevators available. Whenever possible, we advise residents to allocate additional time when leaving or returning to the building, avoid busy travel times, and if able to, use the stairs. 

Increased elevator bookings take place during the first and last week of every month to accommodate move-ins and move outs.

We will be posting an up-to-date elevator booking schedule every Monday which outlines the next week’s elevator bookings. Please note that this schedule is subject to last minute changes.
