That condo tower is pretty sweet looking.:tup:

Gresto Sep 23, 2011 2:40 AM

I like the density these are adding to that area.

That would be a nice commute for anyone who lives/works in the same complex.

JuelzJones Sep 25, 2011 5:51 PM

looks nice and has pretty good height.

Signage for Patio being taken down, store closed up....

Excuse my ignorance, but in that massing model the CN Tower is just a few blocks to the right? And the Shangri-La is also real close by right, sort of behind the massing right?

Anyways, I love what I've seen so far of this. And another probably dumb question, given that it seems a lot of Toronto's new developments have been residential, would it be fair to predict a fair amount of office buildings in the near future?

LOL!. actually, the CN tower is a few blocks down (or, where you are looking at the shot from), and shangri-la is a few blocks up...

and yeah... Toronto is NORTH AMERICA's real-estate condo boom market by a mile.... basically everything currently being built (skyscraper wise in the downtown core) is condominium... a year or two ago, we had too much office space with the new additions (ex. Bay Adelaide and RBC Centre)... and now, we're seeing a few tall office proposals scheduled to start up within the next few years...

Aura, has a strong chance of being North America's tallest residential condo, even past Beekman/New York by Gehry in NY. thus, making Toronto's mark as condo capital! :D

18 York is the latest office tower, it's almost finished, say in another 3 months or so.

And Bremner Tower, is also just starting up - under-construction, its in the thread with the Delta Hotel.

Can't say the design looks too promising but I really like the scale of the project and the office/residential mix is pretty cool.

Travis007 Sep 27, 2011 4:32 PM

I'm going to miss Joe Badali's but definitely short term pain for long term gain. Maybe they can relocate north into the Entertainment Distict or to the St. Lawrence/Esplanade area.

Oddly, my former high school VP was also named Joe Badali. Pretty sure it's a different person though. lol

Here is the meeting report:

1100 square meters of retail isn't bad, though they plan on developing it in stages, meaning the office tower portion probably isn't the final design :(

Bremner might be capped at grade as they still have not secured a lead tenant. If Bremner is capped though it means 16 York will likely go so either way one of them is going forward.

caltrane74 Sep 28, 2011 6:31 PM

Well, yeah, 16 York is the big boy! I hope that one gets the go ahead.

Competition brewing in the Toronto Office Market.

Oxford properties updated its website for 100 Adelaide. Now 44 floor and a direct challenge to this project by Cadillac Fairview.

I've been told this project will go to the market in March.

Innsertnamehere Feb 11, 2012 5:40 PM

we will need some better renders then! (and hopefully that means they found a lead tenant for the office portion)
