Concrete and steel are now rising from the excavated pit, and the below grade structure currently sits about four storeys below street level.

The construction site is tucked away behind the Hermant and HNR buildings; nine and fifteen-storey heritage structures built in 1913 and 1929 respectively. As part of the redevelopment, the Hermant building's aging window frames have been replaced and now sport a fresh looking forest green hue. The restored buildings will continue to house office space, but with a renovated lobby and retail frontages at ground level.

One complete, HNR Dundas Square Tower will add 245 rental units to one of Toronto's most vibrant and lively locations.
