Three months since we last checked in at the Infiniti mid-rise development by Brian Allsopp Architect, and the 6-storey timber frame block has made significant progress. Exterior cladding is now well underway, the arrival of grey spandrel and red accent panels now bringing the project that much closer to completion.
Located at 117 St NW and 105 Ave NW in Queen Mary Park, Infiniti's 109 units will soon represent an influx of up to 200 new residents to the area, the development to be a boon to local businesses and the 104 Ave NW corridor. Close to the Oliver Square mall, Infiniti will place residents within easy walking distance to a number of shops and restaurants, as well as transit and the downtown core.
Viewed above, Infiniti's cladding installation is coming along nicely, the framing and insulation work now in the process of being covered over by the exterior spandrel paneling. Infiniti will eventually sport four different colours of spandrel (grey, black, white, and red), which will be blocked in such a way as to create an overall dramatic but not overstated effect.
The completed project (as viewed above) will likely be a welcome addition to the area, Queen Mary Park and many other of Edmonton's older inner city neighbourhoods currently in the midst of a building boom.
SkyriseEdmonton will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
