Aura tower, Canadas tallest residential tower nearing completion!


Thats right folks, the tallest residential tower is here in T dot, beautiful soaring Aura tower, 75 magnificent stories above grade, with world class amenities such as the world reknown Hard Candy fitness centre. A huge addition to the PATH connecting this building to College Park, Atrium on the Bay, Eaton Centre, and direct access to the Toronto Transit subway system. The original design proposed two towers. The building would have featured a ten-storey podium, with two towers on top. The taller tower would have been (including podium) 60 storeys and 196.5 m tall. The shorter tower (including podium) would have been 20 storeys and 74.5 m tall.

 
In February 2012, Toronto city council approved a three-storey increase to 78 floors, meaning that Aura will remain Canada's tallest residential building (as it will be taller than Tridel's 75-storey Ten York condo project.

The lower floors of the building were occupied while the upper floors were still being constructed. Floors 1-31 were opened for occupancy in Fall 2013, while floors 32-80 were still bare concrete. The second set of floors, 32 to 57, were occupied in spring 2014. The final phase, floors 58-80, are set to be completed in December 2014, pending unanticipated delays.
