The Beach Motel, an icon of Etobicoke’s lakeshore motel strip, was demolished last week to make way for the new Empire high-rise, Eau Du Soleil.

Local media descended onto the site at Lakeshore and Park Lawn to witness the demolition of the landmark that was once a staple for families visiting the city.

City Councillor Mark Grimes spoke to the crowd about the transformation of the neighbourhood into a residential hotspot while Paul Golini, the president of Empire Communities, extolled on the virtues of the area.

Once complete, Eau Du Soleil will be one of Canada’s tallest waterfront condominium communities sporting great access to transportation and top notch design.

The demolition excavator made short work of this section of the building. It didn’t stand a chance.


This shot makes the excavator oddly majestic.
