Six weeks since our last update, and progress at the site of Symphony Tower has been progressing nicely, with crews now applying the finishing touches ahead of the planned December, 2018 occupancy. With its shroud now removed, and virtually all cladding, glazing, and exterior finishing work now complete, it will only be a matter of weeks until the 27-storey, 143-unit, KENNEDY-designed, residential high-rise becomes the latest addition to Rossdale.

Symphony Tower is a multifaceted project, comprised of the main tower in addition to two heritage properties - the 1907 Foot House and 1913 Parkview Apartments - which have been restored and incorporated into the base of the structure. Viewed above, the heritage elements blend nicely into the overall milieu, transitioning to the modern glass tower via the interjection of a collection of redbrick townhouses.

The musically-inspired Symphony Tower has maintained the theme throughout, including the naming and layout of the suites and common areas within. Located at 106 St NW and 97 Ave NW, the project will deliver upwards of 250 new residents to the foot of the adjacent Legislature Grounds.

Truly an inspirational development on many fronts, including first and foremost its clever adaptive re-use and reintegration of heritage resources, Symphony Tower, as the name implies has managed to successfully blend together a mix of disparate elements into one well orchestrated production.
