High-rise development in and around Toronto's Yonge Street corridor is continuing at fever pitch, as yet another condominium tower has recently topped off in the area. Urban Capital Property Group and ALIT Developments' Nicholas Residences is now at its final height of 35 storeys, plus mechanical penthouse, and work continues on the tower's construction.

Designed by Core Architects and Goldsmith Borgal and Company Architects, the development is one of a growing collection of high-rise condominium towers bringing added density to the blocks surrounding Yonge Street, Toronto's main pedestrian and public transit thoroughfare.

At the south end of the development, bricks which once covered the former planing mill which stood on-site now cover the three-storey podium built to replicate the heritage building's footprint. Since our last look at the project, windows and framing have been installed on the historic rebuild.

Once construction is complete, residents of the development will be located in close proximity to some of Toronto's most vibrant neighbourhoods, including Bloor-Yorkville, Church-Wellesley, and of course Downtown Yonge.
