Canderel's Aura at College Park is currently Canada's tallest condominium residence, and the 78-storey, Graziani + Corazza Architects-designed development is now nearing structural completion with the assembly of its steel-frame roof armature. The building's final concrete level, the mechanical penthouse, was poured earlier this year, and last month, work got underway on the construction of Aura's sloping roofline.

The completed roofline will feature two sloping peaks rising to the north and south, both of which can now be seen taking shape at the top of the tower. Currently, the steel skeleton of the roof feature is almost completely assembled, meaning that Aura has essentially reached its pinnacle height of 892 feet - the third tallest building in the city as measured by roof height.

In the image above, we can see the progress on the roof feature as of this just after noon today via the Aura Webcam. When compared with the image below, taken from the webcam on April 17th, we can see much progress on the roof's armature.

The tower's cladding now reaches to just below the penthouse level, and a similar, if not identical curtainwall cladding will be applied to the roof feature in the coming weeks.
