Situated between the fresh produce of St. Lawrence Market and the freshly scrubbed faces of Bay Street is 88 Scott by Concert Properties. Set to rise 58 storeys and accommodate 480 units, along with a bevy of distinctive amenities, 88 Scott will definitely attract a lot of attention in this historic neighbourhood.

Before the opulent glass tower rises the old seven-storey Royal and Sun Alliance's interior must go. Demolition is already underway with a new crane installed within the last week on the site of 88 Scott. Once the site is fully cleared, construction will go into full swing and make this sleek development a reality.

The planning and interior work has been ongoing for many months already. Much like Concert's other project, The Berczy, located minutes south of 88 Scott, they have decided to preserve some of the neighbourhood's original vernacular. The existing limestone facade of the first five storeys will be removed, restored and then reused to create a unique podium for 88 Scott, retaining the building's Art Deco elegance.
