This week's Throwback Thursday takes us back almost exactly one year for a view of a rising condominium development eat of Toronto's Downtown Core. Back in May 2018, podium levels could be seen taking shape for East United Condos, a 24-storey Giannone Petricone Associates-designed development by SigNature Communities, Berkshire Axis Development, and Andiel Homes. An aerial view facing north from the nearby Distillery District also offered a glimpse of The Selby in the background and E Condos under construction in the distance.
A year later, the same vantage point shows East United Condos in the process of topping out at its final 83-metre height above the Parliament and Adelaide intersection. In the background, The Selby and E Condos have both wrapped up construction, while a new crane with its yellow boom marks the construction site for the new home: Power and Adelaide condominium development across Parliament Street from the East United site.
We will return next week with another look at the changing face of Toronto.
