The Yonge and Eglinton area is bursting at the seams with new development. In anticipation of the new Crosstown LRT line, several new construction projects are adding significant density to this Midtown Toronto community. One of the major players in this wave of new construction is The MadisonMadison Homes' eponymous project rising from Eglinton Avenue, a couple blocks east of Yonge Street.

Designed by Kirkor Architects, The Madison will be comprised of 33 and 36 storey towers rising from a shared eight-storey podium containing residential and retail, including a 40,000 square-foot Loblaws supermarket on the second level. When we last looked at the project's construction at the end of March, the first columns and wall forms for the east end of the development's ground floor were taking shape. In the time since, work on the east end of the site has progressed up to the fourth and fifth levels of the podium.

The west end of the site still lags a bit behind the east, and concrete columns are now in place for the large double-height section of the second floor which will eventually be home to the Loblaws.

When construction of The Madison is complete, residents of the development's 644 condominium units will have access to a selection of amenities, including 16,254 square-feet of indoor amenity space plus an adjoining 6,204 square-feet of outdoor amenity space.
