Out of the many condo developments rising in Toronto's Entertainment District, few will offer a street level experience as visually engaging as the Wallman Architects-designed Tableau Condominiums by UrbanCapital Property GroupMalibu Investments and ALIT Developments.

Tableau's tower portion rises from a four-storey "tabletop" podium with a nine-column colonnade bordering a piazza. The sheltered area will be accessible to pedestrians as a Privately-Owned Publicly-accessible Space (or 'POPS' for short). The podium will house office space on its first three floors, with its west end featuring a replication of the facade of the building that occupied the site prior to redevelopment. The fourth floor of the podium will feature Cecconi Simone-designed condo amenity spaces, while a public art installation by Shayne Dark titled 'Nova' will pierce the tabletop through an opening in the northeast corner of the development.

Cladding installation has begun on the podium levels below the tabletop. A reflective glazing framed by slender black mullions now covers much of the podium's north wall. The rows of cladding will be separated by horizontal spandrels to hide the slab edge of the concrete floors.

Now rising 26-storeys, there are only ten remaining levels left to build of the condominium tower before the development reaches its final height of 384 feet late this spring.
