This shared space will also include a publically-accessible “social courtyard,” overlooking the Don Valley.
The condo’s ground floor will include a selection of two-storey work/live units with access from street level as well as 2,658 square feet of outdoor amenity space attached to 3,153 square feet of indoor amenity space. Tree-lined sidewalks will help animate the street and encourage a lively, pedestrian atmosphere.

An additional 1,377 square feet of indoor amenity space will be featured on this floor, with another 1,474 square feet on the thirteenth.
Suites in this condo will include 47 percent allocated as two bedrooms and another 12 percent allocated as three bedrooms, for a total of 560 dwelling units in total. In the tower portion, a typical floor will span 9,633 square feet with 12 units per floor. Designed as sleek and rectangular, the tower element is expected to be sculpted with an angled balcony design.
Three levels of underground parking will house 226 vehicle spaces and 570 bicycle storage spaces. This is a thoughtfully-designed development that brings together the best of contemporary living space and some of the city’s best natural resources.
