I shared a project underway last September by Toronto's own Ciconne Simone.  This award-winning design group teamed with Netkin Architects to create Lippincot Living.  Located at 56 Lippincott Street, these 2000 sq ft multi-level residential dwellings are designed for the urban buyer. 

These design based units are built using an advanced structural system that employs prefabricated components—wood frames and precast concrete—which speed up construction times, reduce waste and provide greater quality control. Each home is a high-performance building designed to withstand the elements and maximize local climate conditions—retaining warmth in winter and cool air in summer—to reduce energy consumption.

Since my last post, they've enjoyed peer accolades, and the delight of a project that is one unit away from being fully sold.  Construction is also well on its way, with the structures now in place and roof on as of last week.
