Another condominium tower is close to topping off amidst Toronto's growing Entertainment District, as concrete forming has begun on the uppermost levels of Lifetime DevelopmentsThe Bond. When we last checked in on progress at the 42-storey Core Architects-designed condominium development back in December, forming was underway for the tower's 26th level. In the months since, another 16 residential levels have been poured by crews from Skygrid Construction, and work has now moved on to the tower's mechanical penthouse levels above.

New images from Forum contributor drum118 provide a close-up view of the ongoing work at the top of the tower. In the image below, a long terrace as been poured (with its thicker slab showing), to be uncovered once forms are removed. It marks The Bond's uppermost residential level, containing penthouse units. Above it, the first mechanical level—marked by its significantly lower ceiling height—has been poured, while forming is in progress for the second mechanical floor above.

The installation of exterior details has also had a large impact since our last update, with roughly two thirds of the tower now sealed off by window wall cladding. Balcony glass installation follows several floors behind, with clear balcony glazing now covering the lower half of the tower's outdoor spaces.

Now just metres shy of its final height, The Bond is making an impact on the Entertainment District skyline from a number of vantage points, including the view below, where it fills in a gap between neighbouring condos as seen from the CityPlace-Fort York neighbourhood.

The Bond will add 369 new condominium units to the bustling Entertainment District, with residents being provided with a number of Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting Inc-appointed amenity spaces, including a landscaped terrace with outdoor barbecue, a private dining area and lounge, a fitness centre, a double-height yoga studio, a special event kitchen and private dining room, a games room with a golf simulator, and plenty more.
