We hope you enjoyed the first edition of dataBase Project Of The Day, and that we got you all thinking about Lago at the Waterfront, as well as the Humber Bay Shore area.

Today we spotlight Tango, part of the Concord Park Place development at Sheppard and Leslie. Developed by Concord Adex, and designed by Page + Steele/IBI Group Architects, Tango is the first of two buildings of the same name to be developed on the site. Tango and Tango2, along with Discovery, are the current projects underway at Concord Park Place and future buildings will be announced in the future.

Tango's design is clean and simple, with dramatic interruptions, such as the vertical blue band of glass sandwiched between the east and west façades creating visual appeal. Gently curved balconies extend along the west facade, reaching toward the city's downtown core. While the architecture may not be breaking new ground, it certainly sparks conversation, and adds another element to the intensification occurring along Sheppard Avenue.

Residents of Tango will join the nearly 7,500 other residents who will eventually occupy Concord Park Place. The developer plans to include a central eight-acre park, elementary school, daycare, public art, and a variety of retail options that will operate along the existing big-box stores IKEA and Canadian Tire. All of it makes for the creation of what will be a real community.

To encourage potential purchasers, Tango and its sister building Tango2 will offer unique amenties such as shuttle bus services to the subway, as well as to Bayview Village and Fairview Mall. Judging by the popularity of Tango, Concord needn't be worried about having to sway interest towards the city's north end.

We'll leave you with a photo taken last week, showing us the current state of construction on site.
