When we last checked in on The Daniels Corporation’s NY2 in North York, work was ongoing on the 7-storey condominium’s complicated ground floor. In the month since our last visit, the project has made dramatic progress, now rising four storeys above Sheppard Avenue, just east of Bayview.

Considering the large size of NY2’s floorplate, the amount of progress since the end of June is quite impressive.  Concrete work on the ground floor, amongst other things to include 5,000 square-feet of retail space, was a very complicated operation. The unique layout of the first floor called for several one-off concrete forms, unlike the typical floorplates now rising.

Now reaching about halfway towards its modest final height of 82 feet, the Core Architects-designed building is being built as the final phase of Daniels’ extremely successful NY Towers community. Like many of Daniels’ residential developments, NY2 offers an innovative rent-to-own program designed to attract and cater to end-user first time home-buyers.
