X2 Condos turning heads at Jarvis & Charles

Building is already making a big impression

I also heard people commenting about the construction — remarking, more specifically, on how big the finished building will be. “This thing’s huge! It already feels like it’s gonna look way bigger than X,” one man told me, referring to X2’s “sister” tower, the 44-storey X Condominium, on the opposite side of Charles Street. Another man told me he thinks X and X2 will establish a “really cool” entrance gateway at the east end of Charles, but two women walking down the street ahead of me were worried that the two towers might create a “canyon” and “wind tunnel.”

A project of Lifetime Developments and Great Gulf, X2 Condos was designed by Wallman Architects. Suites in the 470-unit building are still available. According to recent magazine advertisements, condos are priced from $302,990 and can be purchased for as low as a “5% total deposit.”

Below are two renderings of the building, from the project website, followed by a series of photos showing X2’s construction progress since late December 2012.
