A new mixed-use development will soon rise at Main Street and Danforth Avenue in Toronto's East End, as the early stages of construction move along for Tribute Communities and Greybrook Realty PartnersLinx Condominiums. The project's moniker is fitting, as the 27-storey, Turner Fleischer Architects-designed tower will place its residents, office, and retail workers with easy "links" to the surrounding city and wider region… via Main Street subway station just steps to the north, or Danforth GO station just to the south.

Construction on the project commenced in late 2020 with the start of shoring work, along with heritage abatement work on an onsite 1887-built house that was recently included on the City of Toronto's Heritage register. The house was lifted on hydraulic jacks and moved to a different location on the project site early this year, and now awaits incorporation into the north end of Linx Condominium's podium.

Excavation wrapped up this past Spring, and a tower crane was installed at the base of the pit back in June to begin the project's forming stage. Crews are forming two underground levels set to provide 129 parking spaces, with 111 of those for residents and 18 for visitors. Another 4 visitor spaces will be built at grade. The walls and columns of the P2 level are now taking shape at the base of the pit, and work on the P1 slab will begin in the coming weeks.

Upon completion, Linx will put 371 new condominium units steps within the two rail transit stations, as well as the 506 Carlton streetcar and several bus routes with stops just steps from the building.
