Canderel Stoneridge held their official groundbreaking ceremony today for Aura [map] and BBH was invited along.
Once completed, Aura will be the tallest condo building in Canada with an equivalent of 84 floors totaling just shy of 1.3million sq. ft.
Located at Yonge and Gerrard, the speakers on the day, including Mayor David Miller, Councillor Kyle Rae and Canderel Stoneridge Equity Group President Michael La Brier, all spoke about their excitement at the new energy that the project will infuse into the area.
Complete with a 200,000 sq. ft. retail podium and underground access to the subway and PATH system, Aura is sure to be a welcome addition to Yonge Street.
Check out the video below of what Mayor Miller and others had to say on the project.
