Earlier this week, we mapped out 10 new exciting projects expected to be completed in 2014 including the anticipated 78-storey Aura Condos at College Park and the B.Streets Condos nearing completing across from Honest Ed's. As we look ahead to 2014, the Toronto skyline will be transformed once again by new high-rises, developments and renderings. Here's a peak at what's happening in and around the city.
River City Phase 3
↑ Last year, developer Urban Capital revealed a rendering of the new River City Phase 3 Condos, a project near Eastern Avenue and King Street along the Don River. The textured cube building is different from what we've seen before and either you love it or hate it.
Union Station Revitalization
↑ Union Station is currently undergoing an extensive billion dollar transformation. Initiatives include an update to the station's aged facade, a new pedestrian retail concourse, creation of a new PATH system, and increasing the number of station entrances, to name just a few. While the major undertaking may be worth it in the end, the construction and closures on Front Street is causing havoc for drivers and commuters.
2015 Pan Am Games
↑ While Toronto gets ready to host the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games, the city is busy getting the venues into shape. The venues for the summer games are currently under construction and check out our map for a list of venues and what's happening around the city.
↑ Another intriguing development on the radar for 2014. The Core Condos at Shuter and Dalhousie Streets is a 24-storey building with a yellow and blue coloured podium. The building is still under pre-construction but the design is getting people talking.
155 RedPath Condos
↑ There's plenty of new developments happening at Yonge and Eglinton including a 35-storey building at 155 RedPath. Also on the Eglinton radar are the E Condos with its fishbowl infinity pool, and the revitalization of RioCan's Yonge Eglinton Centre with 40,000 square feet of additional retail space and expansion of its office towers.
