Pharrell Williams' Toronto Condo Is Finally Happening (PHOTOS)

Work on Pharrell Williams' highly-anticipated Toronto residential development has officially begun, and judging by its mock-up images, it's going to be jaw-dropping.

The launch of the project, called Untitled Toronto, was celebrated on Tuesday with a small ceremony on-site.

"We knew we wanted to collaborate with a cultural icon, who would lend a vision that originated from outside the realm of residential real estate." Shane Fenton, chief operating officer of Reserve Properties, said in a press release.

The project is Pharrell's first foray into multi-residential development. The artist signed on after being approached by Toronto-based Reserve and Westdale Properties.

"Early on in the design process we settled on the mantra, space was only a backdrop and that ended up really driving the process," Fenton said.

Lead architect Mansoor Kazerouni tried to create a "visual abstraction of music" within the architecture of the building, according to the release.
