Located in a midtown Toronto neighbourhood, 83 Redpath resulted from intensification of an existing apartment building surface parking lot which allowed for a significant reinvestment in the existing rental building without necessitating rental increases. Townhouse units along the street and a landscaped courtyard seamlessly integrate the condominium into its surroundings. Amenity spaces include an indoor fitness pavilion, a theatre room, a yoga studio, half-court basketball and guest suites. The intersection of two soaring rectangular volumes create two dramatic spaces: an open air rooftop paradise on the 20th floor, and a powerful entrance, created by the expansive cantilever floating over a two-storey lobby. The façade is sleek and tight, animated by a playful pattern of shimmering glass panels as a counterpoint to the tailored architecture. This “Green Globes” project was completed in 2010.
