On the north side of Adelaide Street just west of John in Toronto's Entertainment District, construction is progressing on Lifetime DevelopmentsThe Bond, a 42-storey Core Architects-designed condominium tower that will add 369 residential units to the area. The building's podium is taking shape, with work now under way on the fifth and sixth levels.

Once construction progresses past the sixth floor, work will begin on the more slender tower floors above. The repetitive layouts of these tower floors will allow workers to get into a rhythm and build the subsequent levels at a much faster rate than the podium floors, which often require the use of one-off concrete forms to shape the irregular floor and wall layouts.

The new condominium tower is rising across the street from recently completed projects Pinnacle on Adelaide and Cinema Tower, in what is quickly becoming the densest corridor in the Entertainment District. The podium levels, which will mostly contain office space, currently present blank concrete walls to the east and west. At the end of construction they will be clad in a dark matte aluminum panel. The windowless side walls will allow for future development on the abutting properties.

Once construction of the building is complete, residents of the development will enjoy a selection of amenity areas outfitted by Tomas Pearce Interior Design, including a gym, party room, a sauna, a swimming pool, and a roof terrace atop the podium.
