In our last update of Musée Condos—a new development by Plaza located near the corner of Bathurst and Adelaide West—the footprint of the future park was revealed as the structure began to rise above ground level. Work has continued to progress on the 17-storey condo building designed by Quadrangle Architects, and interesting features of the podium are beginning to appear as the concrete structure rises from the ground.

A notable aspect of the building is the outdoor galleria that cuts through the ground level, connecting the newly-created park in the inner courtyard to Adelaide Street West, which will be used to host changing art exhibits. The park, formed by the L-shape of the building, will provide a relaxing space for residents and will bring a fresh new green space to the King West neighbourhood.

Photographs of the construction site reveal the tapered cylindrical columns, currently wrapped in protective plywood, that will feature prominently on the exterior of the ground level, and will also mark the entrance to the galleria.

As the concrete structure is poured, the dividing walls of the units and rooms in the podium can be seen, giving a sense of the suites to come. Musée Condos will feature a seven-storey base clad in dark masonry, which will contain a host of amenities for residents, including a lap pool, a huge gym, steam rooms, a large event space, and a media room, among others.

As the fly forms are transferred up to the next storey at Musée Condos, Harhay's oneeleven Condominiums continues to rise at an equal pace just next door. The 17-storey, Core Architects-designed building will add more trendy condo units to the already bustling King West neighbourhood, completing the transformation of this busy corner.
