Today's Photo Of The Day takes us to the construction of the new Aura at College Park condos. Taken by UrbanToronto forum member steveve, the photo shows the four storey retail podium as it takes shape.
This photo actually depicts three and a half floors as the ceiling for the fourth has yet to be constructed. And while it looks like there are more than four floors the photo is deceiving. The floors are actually double height. Look to the right side of the building above the construction gate and you'll see the double high second floor. Here's what the base will look like when completed.
The 75 storey Canderel Stoneridge developed condo, with significant amounts of retail in the podium, is located at 388 Yonge Street. Designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects, with interiors by GCB Inside, the condo will contain 931 units.
