The last time we visited Fabrik Condos by Menkes Developments Ltd. construction on the 17-storey condominium had just passed the second floor. BuzzBuzzHome News returned to the site earlier this week for a tour of the project, and we’re pleased to report that construction is well underway toward its spring 2016 completion.
After topping off last October, all form work and waterproofing has been completed, including the green roof. Outside, the lower facade of the structure is nearly done with cladding and glazing installed up to the 12th floor. Above that, the design — by Giannone Petricone Associates — transitions into a six-storey glass box accented with vertical mullions reminiscent of pinstripes. Magenta coloured bands add further pops of colour and help connect the top portion with the lower floors for a cohesive look.
On the 13th floor, the outdoor terrace is really starting to take shape with the interlock, patio slabs, and concrete planters now in place. This impressive amenity space will feature barbecue areas, a sundeck, and plenty of seating for residents and their guests. And since the terrace faces west, they’ll be able to enjoy beautiful sunsets with expansive city views.
Other building amenities include a welcoming lobby with concierge, multi-purpose room with catering kitchen, games room, screening room, pet spa and a fully-equipped gym. The development will also have ground level commercial spaces fronting Richmond Street, including an Italian fine dining restaurant.
Elsewhere in the building, 80 per cent of the underground garage has been painted, interior framing of the units has reached the sixth floor and drywall installation is up to the third. When complete, the residence will house 171 well-appointed units boasting nine foot ceilings, quartz countertops and a European-style appliance package with built-in, custom panelled refrigerator and dishwasher, slide-in stainless steel range with glass cooktop, stainless steel microwave oven and an integrated exhaust fan.
Remaining suites at Fabrik start from the mid-$300,000s. To learn more about the project, visit the Menkes Condo Centre at 770 Bay Street, open Monday to Thursday from 12pm to 6pm and weekends from 12pm to 5pm.
