The newest residential addition to Toronto's Dupont and Lansdowne area is looking much closer to completion. It has been roughly a month since we last checked in on the progress of Neudorfer Corporation's Fuse and Fuse2 Condos, covering the ongoing installation of exterior cladding for the 23-storey second phase of the Barrett Architect and Burka Architects-designed two-tower development.

In the weeks since our last visit, the main exterior expression of dark-tinted window wall cladding, back-painted spandrel glass, and dark grey mullion caps has risen to the final residential level of the tower. On the tower's lower levels, the first panels of clear balcony glazing with a bird-friendly ceramic frit were recently installed. During the same stretch of time, installation of balcony glazing has all but wrapped up for the development's neighbouring 27-storey first phase, Fuse Condos.

With just the penthouse level left to clad at Fuse2, the project will be sealed off from the harsh winter elements within the coming weeks, creating a comfortable construction environment that will allow construction trades to install fixtures and finishes in the suites.

The two-tower development's addition of residential density to the neighbourhood will be complemented by a 4,885 square metre commercial space in a restored heritage warehouse, anchoring the base of the development to the Dupont and Lansdowne intersection. Once complete, this retail base will include a Metro grocery store, a Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacy, and more.

We will continue to follow the development here, but in the meantime, you can find additional information and renderings in our dataBase file for Fuse and Fuse2, linked below.
