With its 220 condominium units sold out within its first three weeks on the market, CentreCourt Developments' Core Condos has been able to draw buyers to the east side of Downtown, where sales traditionally had been known to be slower than other parts of the city. Designed by Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, Core Condos will rise 24 storeys on the northeast corner of Shuter and Dalhousie Streets. 

Construction work began for Core Condos last September, with the demolition of two row houses and the retention of two others, at 68 and 70 Shuter Street, Georgian-style 19th century row houses, which will be incorporated into the building's three storey podium.

Excavation of the site followed, and with that now completed, a crane has been installed at the site's northwest corner. In the image below we get a view of construction workers loading the crane's cab onto the portable crane. This block of Shuter Street had to be closed over the weekend in order to facilitate the installation.

When the construction phase is completed and units are ready for occupancy, Core Condos will offer its residents units that range from 390 square feet to 775 square feet. The condomnuim will also feature many amenities including The CoreFit fitness center and CoreLounge, a 30,000 square foot space of open-concept lounge which includes a cafe/bar.
