A few wealthy Torontonians will soon be able to live in a bridge in the sky

Given the ubiquity of condo construction in Toronto, a new development is generally nothing to gawk at. That is, unless it involves two luxury suites suspended in mid-air. In a 14-hour feat that took place late last month, Concord Adex hoisted a 40-foot-long, two-storey steel, glass and aluminum structure up 28 floors to connect the two Parade towers in CityPlace. By next February, the first floor of the SkyBridge will serve as a bar and lounge area for tower residents, complete with adrenaline-inducing glass floor cut-outs that offer views of cars and pedestrians below (like a glass-bottom boat, only with more visions of plunging to your death). The second floor of the bridge will be split into two residences of around 4,000 square feet each, overlooking the Toronto skyline and Lake Ontario. [Globe and  Mail]
