The Uptown Residences is a 48 storey residential condominium tower currently proposed in Toronto, Canada near the intersections of Yonge & Bloor at 35 Balmuto Street. During the proposal process, the building was initially referred to as 746 Yonge Street.
I produced this rendering with the assistance of the architectural elevations that were supplied by the developer to the City of Toronto, which become public documents. Artistic license was used in the colouring of the building and glass. The rendered condo is the tall thin building towards the left in this image.
This is an unofficial rendering as I model it in 3D and rendered it out of personal interest.
I was able to obtain the elevations in a document at the City which is in the public domain. Using the elevations and photographs of the first two phases, I was able to use artistic license and put together this rendering. It is an unofficial rendering; it was put together out of personal interest and I was not contracted to produce it on behalf of the developer.
The proposed condo has since changed in design and the developer is now looking to build up to 75 storeys or more. It’s also now known as “Aura”, it’s official name.
I’m not exactly sure since I did keep time records (it wasn’t a paid contract), but I believe it took about 40-60 hours to produce the 3D model, an additional 10 hours on texturing and lighting. The rendering process took about 6 hours and then photoshop touchups were about 2-3 hours. A number of test renders were performed throughout the process, and I decided to keep them so that I can post images of the 3D modelling I went through at some point. I will try to post it over the upcoming weeks.
