Four months since we last checked in at The Vermillion, and it would appear that progress has slowed somewhat over the last few weeks. For though the pre-fab nature of the project by Red Leaf Developments and Brian Allsopp Architects represents an opportunity to build at a relatively fast pace, the recent appearance of a vacant build site suggests that it may yet be some time before the structure tops off.

Without its roof, the castle-like structure has taken on the appearance of a medieval ruin, its unfinished roofline, turrets, and grey facade, working to complete the image. Viewed from the street, it is apparent that most of the main structural work is complete, however, as is much of the glazing work.

Located at the corner of 116 St NW and 106 Ave NW in Queen Mary Park, the 6-storey, 63-unit mid-rise residential complex will soon bring upwards of 100 new residents to the area. The Vermillion - no relation to The Silmarillion - will feature a mix of 1-3 bedroom flats, some of which will come in a 2-storey loft configuration.

10-foot ceilings and large windows (and some bays) will help provide ample natural light within the units, the boutique building to be a prime address for those looking for something a bit out of the ordinary. Well-situated close to a large city park, a shopping centre, and the shops of 124 St NW, The Vermillion will offer residents a healthy mix of urban living and a quiet residential setting.  

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.
