FIVE QUESTIONS FOR BRUCE ROGERS, SITE MANAGER FOR THE MASSEY TOWER In this issue, we had a chat with Tucker HiRise’s, Bruce Rogers. As Site Manager, Bruce’s responsibilities are vast. Some of these include scheduling and coordinating all trades and ensuring the building is built to the architect’s plans. He has to make dozens of crucial decisions every day and is, therefore, very nimble and creative. Bruce followed in his father’s footsteps when he attended the University of Toronto Architecture program. The lure of physical challenges and working outdoors led Bruce to work on some of the City’s most interesting and ambitious projects, including Casino Niagara, Aga Khan Museum, and most recently Pier 27. FAVOURITE PART OF MASSEY TOWER? I actually have a few favourite parts of the Massey Tower: I believe that the 10th floor amenity spaces will be truly extraordinary. FAVOURITE MASSEY HALL MOMENT : Maria Muldar “Midnight at the Oasis” concert, a long time ago, still memorable. GORDON LIGHTFOOT OR RUSH? Gordon Lightfoot. Like Aidan alluded to last issue, the song “Beautiful”; the chording is masterful. WINE & CHEESE OR BEER & PRETZELS? Neither, single malt scotch. MOTTO : If you are going through Hell, keep going!

You had the opportunity to visit The Massey Tower construction site. At this stage of construction, what stood out the most for you? I really enjoyed visiting the construction site. What really struck me is the proximity of the adjacent buildings. You can see that the construction process will be complex as the tower rises out of from between the neighbouring buildings. 3. What do you think Homeowners will enjoy about The Massey Tower? I think that Homeowners will love the look of the building and the central location [...]
