It was about a month ago that we last checked up on Eisenberg, which at the time had just finished topping off. Since then there has been progress on the site including the installation of glass on both the east and west sides of the building. Recent updates show large vision glass panels being installed on the second and third floor of both the front and rear of the building, and thus starting to give passersby a feel of how the building will look when completed.

Despite being a smaller boutique building of only three floors, the building has drawn a fair bit of attention due to it's funky, modern style. Designed by NORR Architects, the building's second and third floor are angled horizontally, standing out against the 90 Degree angles of nearby buildings. The large panes of floor to ceiling glass also add to the modern look which makes for a strong juxtaposition to some of the older buildings on the street.

Once complete, the building will house the retail at the main level and office space on the upper two floors. The retail tenant will be the Royal Bank, which is moving from it's nearby location two blocks away, to make way for The Theodore, a 114 unit residential project.
