March 17 2013: Construction is underway on the top floor of the rental apartment building at 132 Berkeley Street. Windows have been installed on 4 levels so far.
Topping off: The project website and signs at the building site say summer move-ins are expected for the new One32 Berkeley rental apartment midrise in Corktown. But with construction still underway on the top floor, that might be a bit optimistic — unless Toronto’s dreary winter lingers longer than it’s supposed to.
Work was underway on the top level of the 10-storey building when I passed by on St Patrick’s Day, while window and cladding installation had reached the fifth floor.
The midrise building will offer 177 rental apartments in 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom configurations. Amenities will include a party room with outdoor terrace, a fitness studio and a library/meeting room. A 2-level underground garage will have parking for 72 vehicles as well as parking facilities for 180 bicycles.
A project of Concert Properties, One32 Berkeley was designed by Page+ Steele / IBI Group Architects.

Just rented a one bedroom at One32. Very quiet well run, nice sized building in an interesting neighbourhood. Does not overwhelm and fits in well with the surroundings and existing buildings. Liked your blog and photos. Loved that they saved the trees.
You must be crazy renting from concert properties, there complete rip offs and you will notice it when you go to move out and have a huge bill with your move out inspection, saying that they pay out side cleaners to clean your suite and they pocket the money and get the building staff to do it… Seen it done at another location in north York. and the office people sleep around with each other and will not help you out with anything in nature… It’s all about them and taking your money.
