If you haven’t been by King and Shaw recently, then you may be shocked to see two towers taking shape where a car dealership once stood. Construction on DNA3 is booming as purchasers are getting closer to being a part of the hottest condo project to hit the King West area.

We recently completed the 14th floor of both towers and the mechanical rooftop. Both cranes were removed just yesterday revealing the full exterior structure of the towers.

The lighting and painting of the garage areas are completed and installation of windows is well underway progressing to the 8th floor. With the two building structures finished, interior walls have begun which will continue throughout December and the New Year.

We’re excited to announce the addition of Loblaws to DNA3! As the largest food retailer in Canada, Loblaws will be opening an urban format grocery store on the building’s ground floor. Occupying approximately 10,000 square feet, this new location will provide the ultimate in convenience to DNA3 residents and the King West neighbourhood.
