It has been about two months since we last checked in on the construction progress of Lifetime DevelopmentsThe Bond, a 42-storey Core Architects-designed condominium development taking shape in Toronto's Entertainment District. At the time of our last update, construction crews were in the process of forming the tower's 19th level, and in the weeks since, work has progressed an additional 7 storeys, with work now in progress on the 26th floor, now giving the building a significant presence on the area skyline.

As The Bond grows taller into the Entertainment District skyline, installation of the tower's exterior cladding is well under way on the building's lower half. The Bond's podium is being clad in a reflective curtain wall glazing framed with black mullions, while the tower portion is being finished in a window wall system with similar aesthetic properties. The addition of balcony glazing and ornamental banding will further add to the building's exterior in the coming months.

The tower is rising to the immediate north of the recently completed Pinnacle on Adelaide and Cinema Tower condominium developments, which rise to 46 and 43 storeys respectively. A short distance to the west of The Bond's construction site, the recently completed Peter Street Condominiums stands at 40 storeys. Together with these developments, The Bond is helping to turn this stretch of Adelaide Street West into one of Toronto's densest corridors.

Upon completion, residents of The Bond's 369 condominium units will have access to a selection of amenity spaces featuring Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting Inc-designed interiors, including a 7th floor "Urban Retreat" and 8th floor "Fitness Retreat.
