What is shaping up as a real landmark in North York's increasingly urban city centre is pushing closer to completion as crews continue working away on MetropiaBazisPlaza's Emerald Park Condos. Designed by architect Rosario Varacalli, Emerald Park's 42 and 33-storey towers with their trademark flaring upper floors have become a signature feature on the North York skyline, and will soon be topped-off.

The shorter west tower is closest to topping off, with work currently under way on the tower's mechanical penthouse section. The taller east tower is also nearing its structural peak, with just a few floors left to build. In the image below, taken from a high-rise located nearby to the south, we can see the mechanical penthouse level of the west tower clearly taking shape.

The flared upper sections of the building are certainly the development's claim to fame, but it is the emerald green glazing and spandrel combination rising up the exterior of the twin towers that is generating the most discussion among our Forum readers.

When the development is complete, Emerald Park will have added 564 condominium units one of Toronto's most rapidly urbanizing development nodes, within walking distance of two subway lines, plenty of office space, and many retailers and restaurants, including those in the complex's own podium.
