Fall photo update: One Bloor condo construction

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

Although the iconic tower won’t begin climbing skyward for many more months, it’s not too late to buy a suite in the building — if you can afford a starting price over $500,000. According to the One Bloor website, 32 different floorplans are still available, ranging from 530-square-foot studios to roomy 1,727-square-foot 2-bedroom + den residences. If you want “Adventure,” “Bliss,” “Fame,” or “Eternity,” condos with those names can be yours if you’re ready to plunk down a deposit. If it’s “Peace,” “Joy,” “Hope” or “Romance” you seek, you can find all that at One Bloor, too. And if you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live in “Utopia,” well, it’s a spacious 2-bedroom + den with views to the west — and it’s available, too. (Although the building is “temporarily sold out” of “Passion” and “Serenity,” a 2-level “Imagination Five” residence with nearly 1,800 square feet of living space and a western exposure is “coming soon.” Just imagine … )

One Bloor was designed by Toronto’s Hariri Pontarini Architects, with interiors by Cecconi Simone Inc. and landscaping by Janet Rosenberg + Associates. The development is a project of Great Gulf Homes.

Below is a series of construction photos I’ve shot since late October. They are included, along with additional photos, in the One Bloor album on thetorontoblog.com’s new Flickr page. Also below are some building illustrations and floor plans that appear on the One Bloor website.
