We have paid close attention to the progress of The Daniels Corporation’s NY2 Condos, a 7-storey, Core Architects-designed condominium, now in its final stages of construction on Sheppard near Bayview in North York. While work is still being finished up on some of the building's interior spaces, the 140-unit residential development is structurally complete, fully clad and now home to its first residents.

With the building's architectural expression now essentially complete, NY2 adds a modern confidence to the corner of Sheppard and Rean that it occupies. At ground level, the large corner unit facing the intersection will soon open as the flagship branch of the Korean Exchange Bank of Canada.

A sleek blue glazing with white horizontal spandrel accents projects upwards from the inset corner retail unit. The horizontal banding provides continuity between the glazed corner and the opaque white balconies on the south and east façades.

On the east side of the ground floor, the residential entrance now bears the development's address, 8 Rean Drive.

We took a look inside the project earlier this year, and with the building now practically complete, we look forward to returning for a look at the completed amenity spaces, which include a café, exercise room, and a 1,200 square-foot party room.
