Construction began in February 2021 and was completed in October 2021. Located in downtown Galt steps away from the Grand River, Gaslight is a merging of historical and modern architecture. The building features a five-storey parking garage providing ample parking, 30,000 square feet of exclusive amenity space and spectacular balcony site lines. 

Gaslight parking garage was the most challenging aspect of the project from a precast concrete perspective. The garage required massive four-foot-deep precast concrete beams over the drive lane to support sixteen-storeys of tower. Ten-and-twelve-inch precast hollowcore panels make up the slanted drives and parking spaces. 

The balconies are supported with the wing walls to create as much open space as possible and maximize Stubbe's Precast 10" hollowcore spans. In addition, the wing walls hide the vertical joints to accommodate architectural needs. 

This building is an elegant way to represent how Stubbe's Precast works alongside other amazing teams to produce an attractive merge between precast elements in the natural historic area of the downtown Galt in Cambridge. One of the challenges of this project was to maintain a similar feature style to the historic building surrounding it, all while giving it a newer, appealing, eye-catching look that adds chic to the downtown core.
