Construction continues to make new progress at the site of BazisMetropia, and RioCan's E Condos, a two-tower residential development at the corner of the bustling Yonge and Eglinton intersection in Midtown Toronto. Designed by Rosario "Roy" Varacalli, the development will consist of a 58-storey south tower occupying the corner of the aforementioned intersection, and a 38-storey tower fronting onto a residential street to the north.

The south tower — which will contain retail uses at grade and condominium units above — will rise to a height of 642 feet (196 metres), to become the tallest structure in Toronto north of Cumberland Street. The south tower's ground floor was poured earlier this Spring, and in the time since, columns and walls for the ground floor have taken shape. Currently, crews are in the process of placing formwork and rebar in advance of the second level concrete pour.

To the northeast, the footprint of the 38-storey rental tower has been fully excavated, and upward construction on the tower's below-grade levels is now in progress.

The completed development will enrich Midtown Toronto's most important intersection with the addition of new residents, retail, and an enhanced public realm that includes wider pedestrian spaces and a rebuilt entrance to Eglinton subway station on the TTC's Line 1.
