TYPE Mixed use
PHASE Complete
YEAR 2014
LOCATION Toronto, Canada

 

This collection of properties along Howard Park between Roncesvalles Avenue and Dundas Street West have been combined to create an eclectic site for a new mixed use building with retail at grade and up to ten stories of residential above. The building takes advantage of the slope of the site to create efficient and easily accessible parking area and a striking entry court bordered on one side by a glazed bridge linking the two principle building volumes.

Informed by the angled property lines, the distinctive building footprint seeks to maximise floor area and selected views, while the proposed green roof seeks to minimise impact on the neighbouring properties. Gently sloping up towards the centre of the site, the roof creates a welcome swathe of green on the horizon and aids in reducing unwanted shadows on the surroundings. Terraces cut into the slope of the building will enjoy a view of the city as the landscape drops away. The building incorporates a range of units from street related town homes to smaller apartments and large penthouses with expansive terraces.
