Since ground was broken in Toronto's Hillcrest Village area for 900 Saint Clair West a year and a half ago, the Canderel Residential and KingSett Capital condo development has risen to the fourth of its eventual 12 storeys above grade, with several forms up on the fifth floor too.

Our last story covered the February, 2020 ground breaking event, where the developers also announced that a 55-foot mural titled ‘The Spirit of St Clair' will span across the St Clair Avenue frontage of the development. The mural by artists working with Toronto-based Akin Collective and the Museum of Contemporary Art is inspired by a photo from the Toronto Archives, taken at the nearby St Clair subway station in 1961. A preview section of the artwork appears on the hoarding at the site.

More recently though, crews have been busy with concrete forming as the mostly residential building continues to rise. Work now underway on the fifth floor represents the last level of the 'base-building' that will front onto St Clair. Above it the building will step back and provide a rooftop patio area for residents. Residential balconies of the south-facing facade will also begin on this level.

Located on the northeast corner of St Clair Avenue West and Alberta Avenue, the southwest corner of the BDP Quadrangle-designed building will be enclosed with large panels of glass, while the rest of the building's exterior will be clad with red-brick. Along the Alberta Avenue frontage, retail units will bring character to the building's street interaction.
