In the several months since we last checked in on the construction progress of The Yorkville Condominiums, the 31-storey building's unique, copper-coloured cladding has now been almost fully installed, as work continues to progress on interior construction. The project by Lifetime Developments and designed by Wallman Architects rises into the Bloor-Yorkville skyline with an uncommon panache, its striking yet elegant cladding now a distinct highlight of the eponymous neighborhood.

The development, which brings 234 new units to the highly desirable neighborhood, stands out from some of its neighbours with an eye-catching combination of black-mullioned transparent glazing and spandrel panels, framed with copper-hued fins traveling vertically up the building. These striking features are tastefully complemented by extrusions clad in reflective gold glazing.

With the majority of exterior construction now finished, we can expect interior work to also be completed over the coming months. Below, drywalled interiors can be seen through the windows of the two-level townhome units which face McMurrich Street. The Yorkville Condominiums will feature amenity spaces and finishings by Tomas Pearce Interior Design.
