Just over three years ago, Fieldgate Homes' 90 Niagara was announced as a new addition to the rapidly growing King West neighbourhood. A year later, the site's single-storey industrial building—used as the project's sales centre—was demolished, paving the way for the eventual start of construction.

Two years later, excavation has finally started on site, with shoring I-beams visible above grade as construction workers prepare to carve out the site's footprint. In advance of excavation, a pile and lagging earth retention system was installed, with the shoring process itself preceded by preliminary site activity in early 2017.

Designed by Giannone Petricone Associates, the five-storey boutique-condominium will feature 45 units with a mix of single-level condos and two-storey lofts. Appointed by Bryon Patton and Associates, the project's suites will range in size from 560 ft² to over 1,200 ft², with seven two-storey townhomes fronting Niagara Street.

Located just west of Bathurst on the north side of Niagara Street, 90 Niagara will introduce a measured dose of new density to a typologically diverse street characterized by a mix of Victorian homes and warehouses, and new-build condominiums. Reflecting both the low-rise scale and the brick character of the nearby row houses, the project's townhouse frontage attempts to preserve the intimacy of the area, while introducing relatively modest height above.
