Tridel recorded a significant milestone at the close of 2017 when structural forming wrapped up for Ten York Street Condos, their new Wallman Architects-designed tower in Toronto's South Core area. Since then, installation has begun on the steel frame for the glass crown that will top the tower. Its western tip brings the project to its final 224-metre height, forming a continuation of the concrete sections of the building's pitched roofline .

The first photos of the steel frame were posted on UrbanToronto this past weekend. This lattice of steel at the tower's west peak now marks the architectural top of the 65-storey tower, forming a distinctive point that—along with concrete-built sections to the east—will be encased with glazing in the coming weeks.

This element of the tower is now just visible in distant views from the west, bringing the building's skyline presence in the South Core closer to the design shown in marketing renderings.

Ten York will add 725 new condo units to Toronto's South Core neighbourhood, an area rapidly becoming one of the city's most densely built-up.
