Toronto has a lot of great neighbourhoods, but when it comes to easy access to our city's most prized cultural assests Queen West is hard to beat. One new project seeking to capitlaize on this coveted location is 12 Degrees.  Developed by Prince Bay Developments and the BSäR Group Of Companies, 12 Degrees is now under construction just north of Queen on Beverly. This future 11 storey boutique condo tower is still in the midst of excavation right now and we've got a couple photos worth checking out below.

Excavation at 12 Degrees has not been a quick process: the project is located atop one of Toronto's many underground rivers. Now buried beneath layers of city infastructure, Russell Creek has been the cause of a slower than normal excavation, as much time has been spent on the time consuming de-watering and anchoring process. The underground water here is not a unique problem to this site, as several projects in the city have been similarly slowed by buried creeks. Just a few of these include U Condos, Murano, Nicholas, and The Madison.

This Core Architects designed building has a few amenities of its own to throw into the mix when residents come home through this bustling neighbourhood. These include a fully equipped fitness centre, lounge, private dining room and catering kitchen, and a expansive rooftop terrace with swimming pool. 12 Degrees still has a ways to go and we will keep you updated as this interesting addition to the neighbourhood rises. Here is a rendering of what we can expect from the completed building.
