AoD

getting ready to roll

Development concept includes:

Street-wall Buildings

* Three-storey street-wall buildings along Bay Street and St. Mary Street, and a row of townhouses north of Cloverhill Wing. Use of roof for amenity space.
* St. Mary Street built form could be more of a domestic feel with raised landscape beds and a few steps up from street to residential units.
* Bay Street built form could include non-residential uses and with entrances flush with sidewalk. Materials include stone and wood trim.


Towers

* Proposed west tower (45 storeys) south of St. Mary Street.
* Proposed east tower (55 storeys) on the Bay Street frontage.
* Both towers have 750 square metre floor plates and are set behind street-wall buildings.
* East tower could have a high, transparent ground floor to permit views between the park to the south and the proposed courtyard area to the north of the tower as well as from Bay Street.
* Towers could be light via the use of glass.


Open Space

* Open space extended to the north of Cloverhill Wing. A green wall feature could be incorporated into the base of the east tower’s south elevation.
* Opportunity for a green feature along the base of the west tower’s west elevation facing St. Michael’s playing field.
* Pedestrian movements through new open spaces and an entrance along the Bay Street frontage.

Wow, they really take their graffiti removal seriously in Toronto. I mean, the image where "Warren Sucks Ass" could have just been removed by dragging your feet through the snow. I think bringing in the excavator is a little overkill.

U Condos is one of the most sought condo in the downtown core under development by Pemberton Group and designed by award winning Peter Clewes and Architects Alliance in association with The MBTW Group. This 2 building complex will be a landmark in Toronto after its completion in 2013.

The building is also close to Yorkville. So glad this one has finally started construction.

Hopefully those are actual metal beams, not curtainwall glazing

I think it's tricks in the glazing that makes it appear that way.

There may be steel beams at the base of the Tower though.

Construction however should speed up by spring when the weather improves. At least how it is at current.

Yeah, would be nice to live here. Compared to the other projects, it's rather affordable too!

They're been moving dirt around for more than three months.

Yeah, very right. This one seems to be taking a very long time in regards to the excavation.


Thank god, there are other projects on the go, otherwise we would be pulling our hair out right now, if this was the only game in town.
