As development continues to boom in Toronto's core, the land in the city's encircling neighbourhoods is also becoming more and more valuable, and we see dozens of residential projects underway in those areas too. Today we are peer into the pit at One Old Mill, the first of a pair of mid-rise towers under construction on the edge of Bloor West Village near the Humber River.

Tridel's One and Two Old Mill, designed by Kirkor Architects, will rise to 10 and 12 storeys to complement the low and mid-rise nature of this west end neghbourhood. Construction has been underway for several months now, and we have recent photos to check out below, courtesy of UT Forum member TOCondoGarden.

As you can see, a crane is up and the lower levels are rising steadily from the evcavation, soon to reach street level on Bloor.

While modest in size, the renderings of both phases indicate that no expense will be spared in making these interiors quite elegant. One Old Mill will feaure amenities like a Fitness Cenre, Swimming and Whirlpool, 24 Concierge and Multipurpose Party Room. With its close proximity to Bloor West Village, and easy access to the Humber River park system and the nearby Jane Subway Station, it is no surprise these projects have sold extremely well, and is a good indication that we will continue to see strong interest in this quiet neighbourhood. One Old Mill is set to complete construction in mid-2014, with Two Old Mill following soon thereafter.
