Redevelopment of Toronto's waterfront LCBO lands continues on Queens Quay, between Yonge and Jarvis. Developed by Menkes Developments, the 4.6 million square foot, mixed-use Sugar Wharf community has been under construction since the end of 2017, and its initial phases of a pair of condominium towers and an office tower will soon begin to make their mark on the Toronto skyline.
At the north end of the site, Sugar Wharf Condos Phase 1 will feature a pair of architectsAlliance-designed towers rising 64 and 70 storeys, reaching respective heights of 218 and 230 metres above Lake Shore Boulevard. The project's below ground structure has been taking shape since the start of the year, when foundation work was seen at the base of the excavated pit.
Crews have since formed four levels of the garage, with work now in progress on the fifth and final parking level before the project reaches grade and work begins on the ground floor. Walls and columns are now being put in place for this final parking level, with concrete and rebar now just inches below grade in certain areas of the site. The first signs of the ground floor should materialize in the coming weeks.
Just south of the first residential phase, the 25-storey, B+H Architects-designed office tower at 100 Queens Quay East recently began its ascent above street level. The second floor of the office tower's podium is now being formed, and new photos provide a glimpse at the central elevator core taking shape at the interior of the site. Once complete, the office tower will be the new headquarters for the LCBO, as well as provide space for The Toronto Region Board of Trade and its trade services arm, the World Trade Centre Toronto.
