Delta is pleased to be working with The Tricar Group once again, this time at the spectacular Azure Condominium located at 505 Talbot Street in London, Ontario.

It has both a vibrant and sophisticated presence.

One of Tricar's preeminent projects to date, it continues their commitment to the rejuvenation of the downtown London core; drawing people in to enhance the economic vibrancy with an active pedestrian connection between Azure’s new street level storefronts, existing development and picturesque open spaces.
