Four months since our last update, and progress at the all-but-complete The Concord has been moving along well as finishing touches are now underway. Balcony glass is now being installed on the top floors of the structure, the roofline already well-populated by a crop of saplings and wooden lattice work as crews hurry to get this project ready for spring.

Located along the Bow River in Eau Claire, Concord Pacific's Arthur Erikson- and Nick Milkovich Architects-designed 14-storey, 218-unit, residential high-rise is well-positioned to capture the imaginations of urban professionals looking for a prime mix of urban vibrancy and natural open vistas. Situated along the newly landscaped riverfront path system, and just steps to the core, The Concord truly offers the best of both worlds.

Thus adding to its outdoorsy vibe, the inclusion of more than a dozen trees to the top of the structure ought to go a long way towards signalling the architects' vision of an urban space that blends seamlessly into its surroundings. From a more practical standpoint, the summertime shade to be provided by The Concord's natural canopy will offer some welcome relief to residents seeking to enjoy the development's large outdoor space.

Soon to be home to hundreds of new residents, The Concord will bring a great deal of pedestrian traffic to Eau Claire and the downtown riverfront.
