Toronto's Financial District is home to Canada's biggest economic players, most based out of massive office towers that clear out by sundown. Condominium development is a relatively new thing in the Financial District, and projects like One King West and the Trump International Hotel and Tower were some of the first trend-setters to bring additional residents to what has historically been a business district. Just north of First Canadian Place, Canada's tallest building, work is progressing on INDX Condos, a new 54-storey condominium tower by Lifetime Developments and CentreCourt Developments.

Designed by Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, INDX features a podium that replicates the scale and massing of the neighbouring Graphic Arts Building abutting the north end of the site. The four-storey podium is now at its final height, flush with its historic neighbour, and in the coming months we should see the tower floors above begin to take shape.

Formwork is now in place for the fifth floor slab, as well as the roof parapet that will replicate the roofline of the neighbouring structure.

With the four-storey podium now in place, work is expected to pick up the pace considerably as crews move on to the repetitive tower floor plates above. Once completed, INDX will contribute its 586-foot profile to the skyline, while also adding 798 condominium units to the Financial District.
