Construction is soon to reach a major milestone at the site of Concert Properties88 Scott, a 58-storey Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects-designed condominium tower under construction at the intersection of Scott and Wellington Streets in Downtown Toronto. When we last checked in on the project back in February, work was well under way on the lower half of the building's five-level underground parking garage. In the time since, construction has progressed up to the final below grade level, and work will soon begin on the building's ground floor.

Progress has been brisk at 88 Scott Street, taking just 13 months to go from the driving of the first ceremonial pile to its current status. Even just one month has made quite the difference, and the shot below, captured from the same angle on April 7th, shows just how much has been accomplished in a month.

The pouring of the ground floor will mark the start of work on 88 Scott's 5-storey podium, which will feature rebuilt sections of the Royal and Sun Alliance building, a seven-storey office building taken down to make way for the new high-rise. 

The completed development will add 525 condominium units to the neighbourhood. Residents of the building will have access to a range of amenities, including a large "SkyLounge" area that will give residents of all floors common access to the panoramic views found near the top of the tower.
