The modern, glittering Toren tower is now 65 percent sold after selling a record 13 units in the last week. The iconic 240-unit residential building’s award-winning design by SOM architects, prime location, and pricing are listed as reasons for the development’s success in the tough real estate market. The eco-friendly building is currently attempting to get Gold LEED certification.
Developer BFC Partners suffered a blow early this season when a deal with supermarket retailer, the Goris Family, fell through. BFC hopes to find a new tenant for the 11,000-square-foot ground floor retail space soon. Brisk sales of the residential units should be an encouraging sign to any would-be retailer wary of investing in the new building.
