Construction of Tridel's Form Condos has been underway for just over a year now, and forming is now heating up for the new residential development just south of OCAD U's iconic Sharp Centre for Design on Toronto's McCaul Street. We last checked in on the 14-storey, architectsAlliance-designed project roughly five months ago, when crews were forming the building's underground garage. The latest photos of the site reveal plenty of progress in the months since.
A significant milestone was achieved in July with the pouring of the building's ground floor slab, and since then the columns and walls have risen to the third level.
The forming process is set to get interesting in the coming months, as the building's rise reveals the signature stepped cantilevers along its south facade. A reverse of this effect will be present on the north elevation's upper levels, creating a trio of stepped terraces mirroring the southern cantilevers.
Form Condos will add 189 new homes to the Grange Park area, sheathed in a unique skin of alternating brise soleils bringing a syncopated rhythm to its face.
