The Latest News From Aura Condos

Building a tower like Aura takes a lot of work, both upfront and behind the scenes. At this point, the building may look completely finished from the outside, but we still have some final steps to take to make sure that our vision is fulfilled and the building is complete from top to bottom. The next few weeks you'll see our construction team working on our amenities spaces, our swooping roof, and removal of the temporary canopy over the retail podium. 

We'll also be working on the glass installation for the swooping roof, which will be fully complete in the coming weeks. The hoist, which is the exterior construction elevator, will be coming down once the glass rooftop is completed, along with the safety canopy above the ground floor retail on Yonge St. This will go on throughout the month of October and into November, and will take about 4 weeks to be dismantled. The 5th floor indoor amenities are coming along and we're just getting to the finishing touches both inside and on our 5th floor outdoor terrace. We know many of you are looking forward to enjoying the terrace, and it will be completed in the next couple of weeks. It looks incredible! Check out some photos of how it looks now. 

We can't wait! This terrace will become one of the hottest spots in downtown Toronto! Will we run into you hanging out there?
