Cidex Group is adding another peak to the growing East Village skyline with The Hat, which after moving past its two-storey plinth, is now forming its tower floors. The NORR Architects-designed building is in the early stages of its ascension, with 28 levels eventually to be achieved.

The first residential rental project in East Village will offer 221 one-, two-, and three-bedroom units at the corner of 5th Street and 7th Avenue SE. A total of 32 three-bedroom units will be afforded, and a childcare centre on the main floor will be available for young families.

New photos from the snow-covered site show the podium formed and construction moving forward on the fourth floor of the tower. According to renderings, the roof of the podium will become an amenities deck for residents.

While The Hat continues construction, Cidex Group is also planning some big things where Macleod Trail SE crosses the Elbow River. An irregularly shaped lot hugging the water could soon host three towers ranging in height from 44 to 56 floors.
