Six weeks since its topping off ceremony, and progress at South Bank has continued to move forward. Glazing and cladding work has begun, the first few rows of window glass and insulation wrap indicating that the mid-rise residential development by Opus and Kasian has entered its next phase.

Located at the corner of 9 St SE and 9 Ave SE in Inglewood, the 5-storey, 69-unit South Bank will join a host of other projects now under construction in the neighbourhood. Thus part of Inglewood's rapid urban transformation, South Bank will serve to inject roughly 100 new residents into the area.

South Bank is being produced as a rental building - its 69 units to be split into 7 townhomes, 25 two-bedrooms, and 37 one-bedrooms - all of which will be placed atop a single level of retail comprising 12,632 square feet. The mixed-use approach will work well in the area, offering a good number of family-sized units, and several large, street-facing retail bays.

Zooming out, it is evident from the above street view that South Bank has gone partially under wraps as work continues across the structure. Soon to become a hive of activity, as the project will form a continuous chain of retail along 9 Ave SE abutting onto AVLI on Atlantic, South Bank will undoubtedly be a prime address within one of Calgary's most walkable neighbourhoods.

SkyriseCalgary will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
