Construction continues on Post House Condos by Alterra Group of Companies; a 21-storey, Wallman Architects-designed condominium project rising behind the site of Toronto's first Post Office at Adelaide and George Streets. When we last visited the site about one month ago, the tower had recently been topped off, and cladding was only a half-dozen floors from the building's roof.

In the month since our last visit, the building's blue and gray-tinted cladding has climbed to just below the roofline, and it won't be long until the development is sealed off from the elements entirely. In the meantime, balcony glazing and trim is now being applied to the tower too.

Along with the recently-installed glass, the installation of another design feature is adding some style to the development. Pairs of vertical metal fins are being applied on the balcony edges, adding texture to the building's otherwise uniform façades.

When the development is completed towards the end of this year, residents of the 278-unit condominium will have access to amenities including a 24-hour concierge, game room, guest parking, guest suite, a gym, party room and sauna facilities.

We will return to Post House as the project's final details continue to be installed.
