Just south of the rapidly intensifying Yonge and Eglinton area in Toronto's Midtown, Davisville is another hot development node gearing up for some big changes in 2015. There are a handful of new developments dotting the local landscape, the furthest along of which is Life Condos by Chestnut Hill Homes and A2A Capital Management. Under construction on Merton Street, just east of Yonge and south of Davisville, the 13-storey, Quadrangle Architects-designed development will soon be rising above grade.

Construction of the building's three-level underground parking structure has made a fair amount of progress since our last update, with the P3 level's structure now in place and concrete forming under way for the P2 and P1 levels above.

After concrete hits grade, the first seven storeys of Life Condos will rise in a T-shape, flanked by the building's vehicular entrance on the east side, and a light well on the west side. Step backs occur above the fifth, seventh, ninth, and all subsequent levels, providing south-facing terraces for suites facing Merton Street.

Once construction of Life Condos is completed, the development will add 149 residential units to the area, ranging in size from 463 to 1,342 square feet. Residents of the building will enjoy a range of amenities, including a catering kitchen, boardroom, party room and a fitness centre.
