This week's Throwback Thursday takes us Toronto's King and Portland intersection, where construction is underway for Allied Properties REIT and RioCan's King Portland Centre. The 13-storey, Hariri Pontarini Architects-designed office building has been steadily taking shape since reaching grade in early 2017. A view from back in July 2017 shows that forming was ongoing for the project's first above-ground levels.

Fast forward just shy of a year, and a June 2018 view from the same angle shows much change. The King Portland Centre is now structurally complete, with a curving exterior of curtainwall glazing almost fully installed. Brick panels and glazing installation are well underway on the building's five-storey base along King Street, and crews have recently begun laying bricks for the sculptural ground floor finishes.
