Scaffolding comes down on 120 Adelaide Street West, Toronto
Now that some of the mast climbers have come down, the full effect of this amazing two-tower re-cladding project is on display! Amazing teamwork by Oxford Properties Group, WZMH Architects, and Flynn Construction, all glass for 120 Adelaide Street West by CareyGlass.
The re-skinning of buildings is a recent trend that is picking up steam as Downtown Toronto is increasingly shedding its mid-century aesthetic for a contemporary blue-tinted look. Oxford Properties commissioned WZMH Architects to design the new skin for 120 Adelaide Street West. 120 Adelaide is a 26 storey tower built in the mid-1960s to late-1970s, the Modernist tower will be stripped of its black cladding and refinished with a new glazed curtain wall system. The new curtain wall skin will make use of clear vision glass with capless mullions throughout. Spandrel glass will cover the areas where the floor slabs and columns are located.
