We last checked in on the construction progress at Cityzen and Fernbrook HomesWaterlink at Pier 27 in September when the first wave of residents had begun to move into the two eastern towers of the architectsAlliance-designed four-building complex on Queens Quay Boulevard, just east of Yonge Street.

Construction is still ongoing on the development, which is comprised of four 11-storey buildings joined in pairs by two three-storey skybridges. Occupancy on the two eastern building is well under way, while work on the western pair of buildings is pushing through its final stages.

With the hoarding removed and residents filling the buildings, pedestrians now have access to much of the development site. Though the west side is still fenced off to provide a safe zone for construction crews, all buildings are structurally complete and almost fully clad, with only the last finishes remaining to be completed. In the image below, a moving truck in front of the easternmost building at Pier 27 brings another new resident to the waterfront development.

Most of the landscaping work has been completed at the northeast side of the site, but there is still plenty of work to be done to the south and between the buildings though, including the public waterfront promenade which will wrap around the west and south sides of the development site, eventually offering both residents and the public access to this stretch of Toronto's waterfront.

On the western edge of the development site, the site of the promenade is clearly visible, as well as the recently installed ground level glazing for the units here.
