I always thought a restaurant would be perfect there too!

I'm just going by what the article stated "The first condo tower, which has 171 units, is nearly finished. When the condo board takes over the building, work will begin on the biggest tower in the development, which will have 319 units. It was sold out in less than 30 minutes when sales launched last May."   You could be right, maybe they will start both at once.

That was what stood out to me.  Garment street being the taller of what's left.

Well, Garment St. is proposed completion in 2021...whereas based on what was just said, 100 Victoria tower 2 for 2020. Logically, 100 Vic tower 2 will be finished first...not necessarily started first. Garment (tallest), from what I know, will break ground next month...

Interesting, thanks for the update.

With these timelines, they kind of have to be building tower two and garment street at the same time.

Spokes - it really does sound like that. So what was start month for building tower I (100 Vic) to month of crane removal and full erection (Oct2018?)?

Tower 2 (Tower 1 hasn't been built yet, unless I am mistaken) had the crane erected June 15, 2017 and the crane came down October 15, 2018 - so 16 months exactly. I am guessing both other tower cranes will be around a bit longer, but I could be wrong, but I think 20 months might be accurate.

How long does the work inside and other details now to be done typically take?
Reply
All the inside/unit work finishing up? wait what's occupancy?
Reply
As someone mentioned earlier, occupancy for the higher floors is May. I noticed today interior lights were in about halfway up the tower

I too saw those lights on around 4:45pm. Coming along at a good tilt still.

I didn't realize the common space at Garment Street was so significant:

Looks hype!

I'm confused at the render that includes the basketball court. The building that the court backs onto, would that not be the Huck Glove addition?
Reply
No, thats the as-of-yet unstarted tower on One Hundred. The Huck Glove addition is "south" of the drawing, across Garment St.

I like how the renders include downsizing seniors and young families using the amenity space.
