This week's Throwback Thursday turns the clocks back to December 2016 for a view of a mid-rise development under construction on St Clair Avenue West in Toronto's Russell Hill area. 28 months ago, forming was underway on Madison Homes and Fieldgate Urban'ZIGG Condos, a Kirkor Architects-designed development just west of Avenue Road. The building was on its way to its 11-storey final height, with work then at the sixth level.

Catching up the present, an April 2019 view shows the completed condo with its contrasting black and white cladding above a base with wood-hued finishes. Work on the project wrapped up in mid-2018, and residents have since moved into the building's 166 units.

We will return next week with another look at the changing face of Toronto!
