When we last checked in on the construction progress of The Daniels Corporation's The Bartholomew in Regent Park, the first above grade levels were taking shape for the Quadrangle Architects-designed condominium and townhome development's 13-storey tower component. In the several weeks since our late-January update, the project has made considerable progress, with concrete forming work now just a couple levels shy of topping off.

The tower's stepbacks above the 7th storey are now apparent, and the reduced floorplate has allowed for rapid construction progress on subsequent floors. Now standing at a height of 11 storeys, there are just two residential floors and the mechanical penthouse level remaining before the structure tops off.

Images captured from street level reveal that the installation of bright white precast cladding has begun for the building's exterior, soon to be complemented by the addition of window wall glazing and a combination of clear and pattern-fritted balcony glass.

The tower's 159 condominium units will be joined by 30 townhomes located to the immediate west. The townhomes, construction of which is now progressing above grade, will rise in two blocks fronting onto St. Bartholomew Street to the north and St. David Street to the south. Together, the two townhome blocks and adjacent tower will frame a large central courtyard that will serve as a community hub for residents of the development.
