Two-thirds of the way up: The Six50 King West condo project already has a strong presence in the King & Bathurst area — and construction of one of its two wings hasn’t even topped off yet.

A project of Freed Developments, six50 King West actually will be two buildings in one, an L-shaped complex wrapping around the back of two brick buildings on the northeast corner of King & Bathurst Streets. The east section of the complex, a 9-storey building with frontage on King Street, is going up first, and construction has reached the sixth floor. Foundation work is still underway for the west wing, which will be a 15-storey midrise tower overlooking Bathurst Street.

The project, which is 80% sold, was designed by Toronto’s Core Architects Inc.

Below are some pics I snapped yesterday at the six50 construction site. You can see the progress that has been made since January by comparing them to photos I published in my first post about six50 King West back on January 20  2011.

The CN Tower is still visible in this Bathurst Street view of the six50 King West construction activity. The condo building will soon block the tower from sight
