2016 has been a busy year for the entire BAZIS team with a number of projects taking shape. We kicked off the year with the finishing touches on Emerald Park, our iconic green glass towers located at Yonge and Sheppard. This striking and luminous architectural concept, dramatically punctuates the monochromatic skyline of North York.
The holiday season is peppered with all kinds of seasonal events, but none are quite as significant as New Year’s Eve. NYE is a complicated occasion that is often faced with varied opinions. For some, they absolutely can’t wait until the end of the year arrives and they can toast the previous and next 365 days (with a glass of bubbly in hand of course). For others, December 31st is the worst night of the year due to all the hype and often expectations fall short. The key to having a great New Year’s Eve is picking a cool, fun party, and making sure you’re surrounded by people you care about. The ROM’s NYE party may be just the ticket! Continue reading
Old vs. new, modern vs. classic, Lady Gaga vs. Billie Holiday. Juxtaposition is everywhere, whether it’s in music, film, food, or architecture. When you visit a city for the first time it’s common to see a shiny modern building next to a century-old church, or a decades-old monument next to a brand new landmark.
Take probably the most famous example of juxtaposed architecture, The Louvre in Paris. The most famous museum in the world dates back to the 17th century, and the baroque architecture of the original building juxtaposes sharply against the modern aesthetic of I.M. Pei’s glass pyramids. Attendance at the museum has doubled since the pyramid’s completion in 2002, which got us wondering about other examples of juxtaposition in architecture, and its impact on those buildings. Here are our top picks – two are in Toronto: Continue reading
It’s been a while since we checked in with the progress at Exhibit so we went down to Yorkville to check out what’s going on at our Bloor Street project! The crew is working hard to get it off the ground and they’re doing a great job.
The framing of the ground floor is complete and we’ve started working our way up to the second floor. These floors will both be retail space as the suites levels don’t start until floor 4.
The framework and rebar is almost ready for us to begin pouring concrete. As you can see in the below photos, the structural columns have been framed and are waiting for concrete.
As we continue working, all of these piles of building materials will diminish to nothing before we move on to the next floor.
See! We told you our crew was hard at work.
We’ll have such a great view of the ROM from the second floor retail space.
2014 is shaping up to be a great one for Exhibit. Based on our current pace, we’re planning to have the windows come in the new year and construction of the suites by the end of the year.
Make sure you stay tuned to our Twitter and blog for more news on Exhibit and all of our other projects.
What’s not to love about Exhibit Residences? It’s located in one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in Toronto and is close to some of the best shops and restaurants in the city. But probably one of the greatest things about Exhibit, is that it’s right across the street from the Royal Ontario Museum. Read on to find out how you can win two tickets to the ROM!
