The Yonge-Eglinton skyline is looking a fair bit denser as work progresses on Madison HomesThe Madison, a Kirkor Architects-designed development consisting of 33 and 36-storey towers rising on Eglinton Avenue a couple blocks east of Yonge Street.

In our last update on the project back in May, the towers had hit the half-way point in their ascent, and in the time since, both towers have grown significantly, with the larger west tower now standing at 25 storeys, just 11 floors shy of its final height. The east tower is following closely behind, and will soon top off at a height of 32 storeys.

In the past several weeks, crews have begun painting the undersides of The Madison's balconies white, giving the unfinished concrete a brighter, cleaner look. The image below shows the difference between the painted and unpainted balconies, highlighting the impact they have on the development's exterior.

The podium of the development will include a 40,000 square-foot Loblaws supermarket on the second floor and additional ground level retail space. The new retail here, especially the Loblaws, will create a lot of new pedestrian activity on this stretch of Eglinton, as the store will add much needed grocery store space in this increasingly dense area between Yonge and Mount Pleasant.

As the towers grow taller, they are beginning to make their impact known from various vantage points around the city. In the image below, we can see The Madison's two towers making their mark on the Yonge-Eglinton skyline, as viewed from far away in Leslieville.

Once the development is complete and occupied, residents of The Madison will have access to a wide range of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, including a zen inspired outdoor garden located atop the podium on the 8th floor, a two-storey gym with views looking over Eglinton Avenue, and many more features some of which include a movie theatre, a yoga room, and a computer/meeting room.
