TORONTO | Crystal Blu | 120m | 34 fl | Com










All photos courtesy of casaguy except the first.

Crystal Blu is a condo tower in Yorkville. It is being built at the same time as Uptown as they share the same lot. Here's a depiction of both of them as they will appear done to scale. Crystal Blu is the shorter of the two towers.

Good to see a thread for this. There are so many projects on the go at the moment here.

I was going through the list on the Toronto site and noticed a great number that didn't have threads here. Is 300 Front approved? I'll do one for that tower too, but will wait till I get confirmation.

No problem. There are actually 27 Toronto developments in this 'Highrise' section, with about 5 more to be added shortly. I put some nice shots of Toronto in the 'Toronto Density' thread in Cityscapes and Skylines too. Check it out.

I don't like the blue colour of the model, but the picture looks better IMO.
