Glass Makes All the Difference at Ice

Well, some highly anticipated glass has gone up in the last few days on three high profile projects, it’s only green in one case (not the cheap stuff), and it has all been caught by a couple UrbanToronto photographers… and we are happy to share the progress with you.

Amongst the photos uploaded over the long weekend by UT member Atlantis are two below of Ïce, the York Street condo/office complex from Lanterra and Cadillac Fairview now under construction just north of the Gardiner. This complex will feature two slender towers, of 57 and 67 storeys, with all four faces of each bulging outwards, in a Scandi-modernist design by architectsAlliance.

Above is what we’ve been promised in the renderings, and now we’re getting an idea of how that will be realized. The glass – as promised in the renderings  – has a blue hue, but more interesting than that is the questions remaining about the balconies: the towers will have alternating full and juliet balcony sections on them which can be clearly seen below.

Below we get a closer-up look at the clips that will be holding the juliet balcony glazing. You’ll see that the clips are arranged in an alternating pattern, angling left – right – left – right above the floorplate. The closest set of clips (on the right) where the juliet glazing ends reveals only two clips there, not four. Nothing like this has appeared on the exterior of any other Toronto condo we know of, so we have to ask: what will the balcony glazing look like here? We’re dying to know!
