Construction is in full swing at the side-by-side construction sites of Plaza's Musée Condos and Harhay's oneeleven Condos in Toronto's vibrant King West neighbourhood. The two developers took advantage of their side-by-side projects to proceed with a simultaneous excavation, and now several months into the job, upwards construction is progressing smoothly, with work now under way on Musée's P2 level, and oneeleven's ground floor.

Musée, designed by Quadrangle Architects will stand 17 storeys above Adelaide Street West, just east of Bathurst. The building will be outfitted in a masonry cladding on the lower seven floors, while the stepped-back upper 10 floors, will feature a light-toned precast cladding that contrasts the podium below.

To be programmed with art, the standout feature of Musée will be its ground level open-air galleria, carving a new mid-block connection through the building to an 8,000 square foot park which will be constructed on the site's southeast corner.

Over at oneeleven to the immediate west, construction has moved up above street level, with work under way on the ground floor's walls and columns. The project will add to the growing streetwall along Bathurst Street just north of King with a 17-storey tower by Core Architects. It will boast flourishes like projecting volumes, recesses and multiple green-edged terraces.

When complete, Musée will add 440 condominium units to the neighbourhood while oneeleven will add another 255 to the bustling King West neighbourhood.
