Construction is on schedule at Cloud9, with occupancy slated for October of this year. When we were last on site in early March, the condominium had just reached the mechanical penthouse level. Today, it stands at full height and the interior work on the lower level suites is nearly complete.

With sweeping views of the Humber River and Toronto skyline, it’s the ideal venue for working out, relaxing or entertaining guests.

Adjacent to the pool is the fitness centre, which will soon feature cardio machines, weight-training equipment and changing rooms. The rooftop terrace will be outfitted with a fireplace, kitchen, barbecues and al fresco dining areas. There’s also a rooftop lounge, with a water feature, additional seating and greenery.

Units on the ground level, which will be the first to occupy, boast lofty ceilings and walkout patios.
