More Construction

Yet another condo is under construction just off Queen St West but this one looks as if it is going to be quite interesting when finished. This shot was taken mid evening so the gates were closed and no work was going on but the structure seems to have gone up really quickly. I'll be back for a few progress pics, I think!

Heck, it's quite interesting now. The architect must have had fun with wooden blocks as a kid. Pretty neat design.

What a neat design. It reminds me of building blocks put on top of each other by a child. I wonder if this allows each one to have a balcony? Great shot, enjoy your day!

Now this is a different way of building. I like how the patio varies for each condo, and the patio above makes a slight overhang for the condo below it! Clever, and very eye catching!

What an interesting design. It's like stacked boxes.

Lea said...

Very interesting!
Be sure to show us photos of the finished building

it doesn't look dangerous

Taken For Granted said...

Know this is a trend in modern architecture, but the building looks like the builders got the blueprints wrong. Or the workers were just careless. Perhaps it will be an interesting building? Makes for an interesting photo.

Boy, someone needs a straight-edge ruler! This is so funny and strange it's cute. Not sure I'd want to live in it but it would be easy for both of my friends to find if they wanted to find me. Which is unlikely. Still...

Gates are very good around construction projects!

Wooden blocks come to mind with this one!

I saw a notification this morning about Buskerfest coming into Toronto around Trinity Square this weekend and looked around- Kate Mior's part of the festival.

Uh-oh! Someone didn't put their blocks back right after they got through playing. :-)

neat, neat, neat design!

An unusual and very interesting building!

Margaret Adamson said...

This is an interesting way they have staggered the floors.

Ida said...

The construction fence is necessary but I must say the unusual way that building is stacked is quite fascinating.

I like it but would not want to live there! Way too much window cleaning. :)

That's Toronto.

Bigger and taller. Way to much glass windows.

I will pass to live down town.

Reminds me of a stack of books.

Jack said...

Even someone as traditional as I thinks this has the potential to be a most interesting building.

Stephanie said...

Looks like a stack of boxes placed in a messy way.

I like all the different angles!

NC Sue said...

Interesting architecture. I bet it presents some challenges for the construction crew though!
I hope to see you at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/08/bennett-place-bit-of-history.html, and please join us each week for Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday)!

EG CameraGirl said...

I don't think I could ever live in a condo but I do agree that this one at least looks interesting. ;)

Karl Demetz said...

A very different design :)

Halcyon said...

I hope they remembered to use glass that can withstand extreme cold!
