Cladding Appears as Artworks Complex Rises Taller in Regent Park

The revitalization of Toronto’s Regent Park community has been ongoing for over a decade and a half. The first three phases of the revitalization include market condominium buildings from The Daniels Corporation, the latest of which is now rising from the northwest corner of Dundas Street East and River Street. The Artworks Tower and Artsy Boutique Condos complex has been under construction since the end of 2018, and the BDP Quadrangle and Kirkor Architects-designed development’s conjoined buildings are now quickly rising towards 33 and 11 storeys respectively.

Things have been heating up since forming of the complex’s three-storey podium wrapped up, and the first evidence of the 33-storey southeast tower’s smaller floors began to appear above. The main tower was 9 storeys high at the time of our last update about a month ago, with the 12th floor now being formed. When it tops out at 33 storeys and a mechanical penthouse, it will have a height of 105.76 metres.

At the base of the tower, the first brick-embedded precast cladding panels have been installed: the brick facing will continue up the full height of both the tower and the mid-rise. Currently, cladding installation has reached the base of the third floor. As more panels are installed in the coming weeks, we will have a better idea of the complex’s final look.

The 11-storey Artsy Boutique Condos is currently having its seventh floor formed, on its way to a final height of 42.37 metres.

Artworks Tower and Artsy Boutique Condos will bring a combined 440 residential units to the Regent Park community. The taller Artworks Tower will have 330 suites, with another 110  in Artsy Boutique Condominiums.
