In the heart of Toronto’s downtown, a new 70-story condominium project is beginning to take shape.

Steps away from the city’s waterfront, the upcoming Ten York condo development will soar up from a very unique triangular-shaped wedge alongside Toronto’s major city artery. 

“It is wedged between a major highway and a triangle of roads … and it’s in the shape of a triangle,” says Vince Mirarchi, senior project manager.

The iconic skyline-altering addition to Toronto’s existing architectural marvels is the brainchild of Tridel, a major real estate developer based in Toronto. The $200 million project features high-end condos that will range in price from $350,000 to $4 million per unit. Though the project won’t be compete until 2018, roughly 97 percent of the condos have already sold, Mirarchi notes.

The University of California, Berkeley is considered one of the finest public learning institutions in the United States. But like many universities it is facing a housing crunch. To help combat that shortage construction of the Bancroft Residence Hall, a new student housing facility just off its main campus, is underway.

Bancroft Residence Hall will be directly across from the newly renovated student union and a short walk to most university facilities. Designed by SCB, the eight-story dormitory is expected to house first-year students and will encompass 186,000 square feet. When completed, the dorm will offer beds for 783 students, plus study and activity space.

Additionally 7,000 square feet of retail space will be offered on the ground floor. An 11,000-square-foot community center will include a study area and meeting rooms, state-of-the-art fitness center, and student lounges.

Plaza Construction ensures the construction of One Thousand Museum in Miami goes according to plan.

By Janice Hoppe-Spiers

Plaza Construction is overseeing the construction of One Thousand Museum, a Zaha Hadid Architects-designed luxury condominium skyscraper in Miami that has become one of the most high-profile projects in the United States. “It’s the tallest project designed by architect Zaha Hadid who about a year ago passed away,” says Brad Meltzer, president of the southeast. “She is the first female Pritzker Prize-winning architect, which puts a spotlight on the project.”

The 63-story, 709-foot-tall skyscraper will feature 83 condo units. Onlookers will be awestruck by One Thousand Museum’s complex structure, which appears as a continuous piece of contemporary sculpture from the podium to the crown. “The sensuous curves of its white exoskeleton create a dynamic contrast with the crystalline façade and define the unique shapes of magnificent private terraces,” Zaha Hadid Architects says.

The Opus Group is a Minneapolis-based design/build firm. Operating in nine cities across the United states, the privately held firm builds in various sectors, including industrial, office, multifamily, retail and institutional.

As a design/build developer, a unique characteristic of The Opus Group is that it is an integrated business with in-house architectural and engineering services, as well as in-house construction and development. Ultimately, after 64-years in the industry, the company’s reputation for building high-quality projects sets it apart from its competitors.

“We work hand-in-glove with each of those business units,” Senior Vice President Larry Pobuda says. “The output of that effort is high-quality and well-conceived buildings that become solid acquisitions for the institutional investment community. So when Opus is looking to sell a building after it is developed, our customers know that it is a well-located, quality project, with a solid design.”

Casey DevelopmentCasey Development’s latest project serves up luxury amenities and a healthy lifestyle.

The Interstate 35 corridor in Texas is considered one of the busiest stretches of highway in the entire interstate system. And while part of that can be attributed to heavy truck traffic to and from Mexico, it can also be credited to tremendous growth in two major cities along the corridor: Austin and San Antonio.

It is those two markets, along with San Marcos, Texas, that Casey Development chooses to focus on, and it couldn’t have chosen better. San Antonio and Austin remain two of the fastest-growing cities in the United States, and the towns in between such as San Marcos continue to explode as well. The growth has led to outsized demand for all types of construction, including luxury apartment rentals, such as Casey Development’s latest project, Tacara at Steiner Ranch.
