The Daniels Corporation's The Bartholomew reached a major milestone when work hit grade back at the end of October, and since then work has been progressing on the initial above-ground levels at a steady pace. At the east end of the condo and townhome development, the first two levels of the Quadrangle Architects-designed site's 13-storey condominium building are now in place, with work now underway on the third level.
The structure taking shape along Sackville Street will eventually contain 159 condominium units, as well as indoor amenity spaces which include a fitness centre, a party room with a kitchen and bar, a lounge, and a pet spa. The development will also offer the outdoor gardening plots that have become a familiar and popular offering at The Daniels Corp developments.
On the remaining two thirds of the site, crews are preparing to embark on the first above-grade construction on the project's 30 townhome units. To rise just west of the condominium building, the townhomes will be built in two blocks fronting onto St. Bartholomew Street to the north and St. David Street to the south, framing a large central courtyard together with the adjacent condominium building.
Among the final market condominium developments in Phase 2 of the Regent Park revitalization, The Bartholomew is being built across Sackville Street from a new rental housing development for Toronto Community Housing Corporation, while to the south of The Bartholomew site, construction recently wrapped up on a TCHC Giannone Petricone Associates-designed affordable housing development. To the southeast is the site of the new Regent Park Community Centre and Nelson Mandela Park Public School. The mix of uses and housing types in these few blocks reflects the vaunted revitalization that has been taking place all over Regent Park over the last several years.
