Glass is starting to rise at 260 Kent Avenue, and there’s something strangely pleasing about the new façade. The clean pre-cast concrete panels are shockingly white, and have deeply set back windows.

Waterline Square’s trio of towers are finally looking like their renderings. Aside from the construction hoist and a few odd windows, each building has its façade fully installed from the ground up.

GID Development Group is responsible for the project.
