A new residential development is adding to the community surrounding Davisville Station in Toronto's thriving Midtown area, as construction progresses at the site of Life Condos by Chestnut Hill Homes and A2A Capital Management. We last checked in on the progress of this development back at the start of 2015, when work was well under way on the building's below grade levels. In the time since, the 13-storey development has risen above street level, and now stands four storeys above Merton Street.

The Quadrangle Architects-designed development is rising in a T-shape, incorporating a vehicular entrance to the east of the building's main volume, and a light well to the west. Fly forms are now in place to create the building's fifth level slab. Above it will be the first of Life Condos' many step backs, to be followed by step backs on the eighth, tenth, and all remaining levels.

The completed development will bring 149 new residential units to the area, with sizes ranging from 463 square feet up to 1,342 square feet. Residents will have access to a number of amenities, including a catering kitchen, boardroom, party room and a fitness centre.
