The King of demolition on Charlotte Street?

image

It took just one week to demolish the elderly building at 11 Charlotte Street Toronto. Now the hard work begins: cleanup, shoring, digging out the pit, pouring concrete and setting rebar, installing window wall and finishing your suite. Surely the fiery redhead will turn us on in the process!?

Just a tiny bit remained as we left the site Saturday afternoon. Brad Lamb and architectsAlliance’s Glas Condominiums is in the background.

King Charlotte has begun!

Let the rule of this architectsAlliance-designed beauty begin! Looking West from Peter Street Toronto with Charlie & Glas Condominiums behind the demolition site.

Clearly the old regime is coming to an end….

Peter Street Condos your crane has arrived!

Jolly good show. Time to feed the pit buckets and buckets of tasty cement with a side of crispy rebar. Looking North up Peter Street. Cool fact: Peter Street Condos’ architect architectsAlliance created this building out of their studios in the yellow brick building on the right. Perhaps they have front row seats to the show?!

Did you know that Casa II

Replaces an existing office building on Charles Street East Toronto?

And did you know demolition has begun?

Now you know! All we know is CASA II was 2 April 2012 RenderPornStar* and that fact makes us very very happy.

Construction, or rather demolition of the old Bistro 990 restaurant and neighbouring office block begins soon! The A List crowd may have to go elsewhere to dine and be seen, but the good news is Cresford Developments 1Thousand Bay Street is an aA List project. We walked around the site of the 31 October 2011 RenderPornStar* to get a better sense of what you’ve got to look forward to over the coming years.

Trick or Treat?

Sixty Colborne sales centre looks hot!

image

We visited the Sixty Colborne site yesterday at the corner of King Street East and Church Street and left impressed by the chic minimal glass sales pavilion. If the sales centre is this hot imagine how sexy this 19 March 2012 RenderPornStar* will look upon completion!

Would you sleep here?

It’s time to show your love for Sixty Colborne: check it out and do climb into that bed!

What’s the real star of TIFF 2012? Theatre Park!

image

It’s totally hot which is why we were busy staring at the site–now hitting grade on the South end. TIFF 2012 may be happening literally next door to this 30 May 2011 RenderPornStar* but the only star that interested us was right here:

Totally A List material, wouldn’t you agree?

King Charlotte Condos is preparing for construction!

Fencing is going up around the existing building in preparation for demolition with excavation and construction of this 2 May 2011 RenderPornStar* to follow. Looking South East from Adelaide and Charlotte Streets Toronto.

Peter Street Condos gets dirty…err deeper. That’s a pretty pit, eh?!

From dirty pit today to crisp clean modernist condo building in the future, this architectsAlliance design is going to excite us for years!
