Food court tenants start moving into Aura as it nears completion

The nation’s tallest condo is slowly filling out.

Madonna’s gym, Hard Candy, was the big news in November, and the woman herself will be showing up in February to give it her four minutes or so. In the meantime, the first two restaurants opened in the food court underground, Sushi BBbop and Kaiju, with several more in the offing, joining the 50 or so vendors that have moved into the 130-shop space downstairs from Bed, Bath and Beyond and Marshalls, and the 300 residents who have already moved into the lower levels of the 78-storey tower while work continues up above.

"We have poured the top residential floor, and now we're working on the mechanical rooftop, which is going to take a little while because there's about four or five floors of that," says Riz Dhanji, vice president of sales and marketing for developer Canderel Residential.

That top residential floor is going for $18.3 million for the, five-bedroom, 11,370 square foot unit.

According to Dhanji, work is just starting on the park Canderel is collaborating with the city on, and giving $3.5 million towards the development of under the city’s Section 37 stipulations.

Dhanji expects the building, with its 985 condos and 180,000 square feet of retail, will be completed by June or July.
