The corner of Bathurst and Adelaide is changing fast, and an entire city block is being excavated as crews dig down to make way for both Plaza's Musée Condos and Harhay's adjacent oneeleven Condos. Though the two projects come from different developers, both Plaza and Harhay will be saving money and improving efficiency by having both developments excavated together. The dig is for oneeleven is practically complete on the west side of the site, and a crane has been erected, while Musée's dig continues on the east side of the site.
The image below faces south over the Musée portion of the construction site, which is currently about two storeys below grade. To the rear of the construction site, a handful of new and under-construction King West condominium developments can be seen, all of which are helping to transform this neighbourhood into a vibrant high-density community.
To the west, the oneleven site is bottomed out in most places, and a tower crane now stands over the site ready to construct the 225-unit project.
The Quadrangle Architects-designed Musée and it's Core Architects-designed neighbour will both rise 17 storeys. Musée will feature a stone masonry cladding on the lower 7 floors, before stepping back for the final 10 floors, clad in a light precast. The completed development's main feature will be a ground level galleria cutting through the building mid-block, displaying art and connecting Adelaide Street to a new, 8,000 square-foot park.
