It's been a while since we last followed up in Opus' mixed use Inglewood project, South Bank. Six months ago we reported on the cladding installation being well underway at South Bank, but things have been relatively quiet since then. There have been small advances here and there while the project progresses, but nothing major - until just now.

Recent photos show the installation of the highly anticipated Corten Steel panels are well underway on the South Bank's western facade. The project's renderings have shown Corten Steel on that side of the building and had looked promising, but until now there was way of knowing how it would look until it was installed.

So far the feedback in the forum discussion thread has been positive, and with only a few more panels left to install we already have a good idea of how it will look when finished. Designed, but Kasian Architecture, the 5 storey building has been under construction for just over two years and is i the final stretch. With new residential units and office space in the upper floors and 12,000 Square feet of retail at grade, the project is sure to be a welcome addition to Inglewood and the 9th ave corridor.
