It has been several months since we last checked in on the construction progress of Lifetime DevelopmentsThe Yorkville Condominiums, a 31-storey, Wallman Architects-designed condominium tower under construction at Davenport and McMurrich in the trendy Yorkville neighbourhood. Since our last update, the tower has been topped off, the tower crane disassembled and removed from the site, and cladding has been applied to all but the last few storeys of the building.

The 234-unit development stands out from some of its more conservative neighbours with a striking combination of black-mullioned transparent glazing and spandrel panels framed with copper-hued fins which travel vertically up the building, contrasted by eye-catching extrusions clad in reflective gold glazing.

With the tower topped off and the crane disassembled, the ground-level construction staging area isn't anywhere near as busy as it once was, allowing work to proceed on the cladding of the building's ground floor. In the image below, we can see a dark glazing/spandrel combination sealing off the building's two-storey townhomes on McMurrich Street.
