On a grey, cold and blustery day earlier this week, the BuzzHomies headed north from the hive to check out the sales centre and construction site of Portrait [map] by Norstar Group of Companies.

First, a construction update: The project is on track and occupancy is still slated for spring 2012. The site of the west tower will, barring inclement weather, be above grade by the end of February.

Within weeks the present sales centre will be demolished to make way for the construction of the project’s east tower. But fear not, a new sales centre will pop up right across the street.

And a little birdie tells us to expect a sales event in the near future to celebrate all these happenings. Party on, Wayne!

As for the current sales centre, a great mural, complete with a painted smiling concierge, greets visitors. A large, open room showcases the sharp-looking model which is neatly lit from the inside, giving the structure a warm glow. The model suite is bright and modern but still welcoming.

Check out a handful of pics, including one of the work site:
