Construction of Aragon PropertiesEnigma on the Park has reached a milestone in Toronto's Bloor and Lansdowne area. The last time we checked in on the progress of the 9-storey condominium development back in February, excavation of the site was in mid-progress. With excavation now largely complete, the recent installation of a tower crane at the base of the excavated pit marks the start of construction back up to the surface at Enigma's site on St. Helens Avenue.

With a tower crane now in place, the forming for the L-shaped building's 94-space below-grade parking garage can start.

Featuring a bold design from Quadrangle Architects, the mid-rise condominium will look like no other building in the city. The exterior envelope—a geometric pattern of chevrons and polygons—will set Enigma apart from its surroundings, while brick elements at ground level will serve as a contextual bridge between the development and surrounding housing and industrial properties.

Enigma on the Park will add 86 condominium and townhome units to the Bloor and Lansdowne area, featuring 50 different layouts ranging in size from 420 square feet up to 1,567 square feet, and prices starting from $231,900 up to $999,900. The project will rise immediately north of MacGregor Park, preserving the views of south-facing residents in the future—a major draw in a city where skyline vistas are often considered temporary.
