UrbanToronto feels quite priviledged to be invited to take hard hat tours of projects in this city. We get to see a lot interesting things, and we have learned a lot about building construction over the past while touring these sites. Of course we see some pretty cool views of the city too, from perches that never existed before, but which will soon be appreciated by those waiting to move into their units. We have a few photos from two recent tours - Context Development's Market Wharf, and The Daniels Corporation's Cinema Tower - that didn't make the stories that have already run, but which we thought we'd share with you today: some odds and ends, and a few of the views.
We'll start with an assortment of views from Market Wharf.
That was quite the blue sky that day - not quite as sunny when we went up Cinema Tower more recently. Here are some more views of, and from, it.
That last one above, of the roof of the amenities pavilion at the Festival Tower/tiff Bell Lightbox, was a reminder for us of just how many things are thought out on a well-designed project in this city: even the stones on the roof here were arranged to refer to the patterning of the podium glazing at the project. Nice touch, KPMB!
There are many links below if you want to know more about any of the projects pictured above. That's all for now: enjoy your weekend!
