Seven months since the first tower floor was poured above the five-storey podium of Concert Properties' 88 Scott, the Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects-designed condominium development is now having a major impact on views of the Toronto skyline. Now standing approximately 35 storeys above the intersection of Scott and Wellington Streets, the development is well over halfway towards a final height of 58 storeys.

While the building has been adding to views from various high-rises for a few months now, its impact from several street level vantage points has become much more apparent in recent weeks. One of the most prominent skyline views of 88 Scott from street level can be found just east of the historic Gooderham Building, where it adds to the modern high-rise backdrop juxtaposed against the historic 1892-built Romanesque landmark.

The building is also making its presence known from popular skyline vantage points including the Toronto Islands and Polson Pier, where its precast concrete cladding stands out from the brick, glass, and steel cladding systems of neighbouring structures.

Cladding installation has also progressed significantly since our last update in April. Precast cladding now reaches as high as the 20th floor, while the installation of the dark-tinted punched window glazing follows a few levels below.

The image above shows that the installation of curtain wall cladding on the development's office component—to be known as 20 Wellington Street East—is practically complete. Below, another shot captured from Scott Street reveals the ongoing installation of historic details for the re-creation of the 1951-built Royal and Sun Alliance building's south and east facades.
