Fashion House Condominium
Client: Freed Developments
Location: Toronto, Ontario
These two stunning glass and steel staircase towers include luxury condominium units, work lofts and exclusive penthouse lofts. The detailed platform design allows for large terraces and balconies and the floor plates vary with height resulting in many separate floor plans and designs. A 16 meter truss was used between the ninth and tenth floors to allow for more open space on the upper levels.
The building features a ninth floor green skypark oasis with an infinity pool, offering stunning views of the city.
This project combines new contemporary design with heritage restoration. The two towers were built immediately adjacent to a heritage three-storey brick building. The heritage building is being restructured by Stephenson Engineering to accommodate a new restaurant. All existing columns were replaced to provide increased strengthening to the second floor beams. All work is being completed from the inside to preserve the historic façade. In addition, the roof is being reframed to support a cupola suitable to the period.
Fashion House was awarded a 2015 Award of Excellence at the Toronto Urban Design Awards.
