It's been roughly a year and a half since Menkes Developments broke ground on their 4.6 million square foot mixed-use Sugar Wharf community on Toronto's waterfront, between Yonge and Jarvis. The initial phases of the project currently under construction will bring a pair of condominium towers and an office tower to the site, the three of which should start to make their mark on the skyline around the start of 2020.

The project's initial residential phase, known as Sugar Wharf Condos Phase 1, features a pair of architectsAlliance-designed towers set to reach heights of 64 and 70 storeys. We last checked in on this component of the project back at the start of May, when a fourth crane had been installed and the first underground level was taking shape.

In the just over 5 weeks that have passed, forming has made significant progress on the next underground levels. A view from the start of June reveals massive support columns and the first visible signs of the east tower's elevator core.

The same angle captured in mid-June shows that the third underground level is now being formed, leaving two more levels to form before the garage is complete and work begins on the complex's podium levels.

Meanwhile, the project's office component recently surpassed an important milestone with the first signs of the ground floor. The 25-storey, B+H Architects-designed office tower at 100 Queens Quay East will be anchored by a new headquarters for the LCBO, as well as space for The Toronto Region Board of Trade and its trade services arm, the World Trade Centre Toronto (WTC-T).
