B. Streets Condos takes design advantage of its situation in downtown Toronto to create a dynamic street experience that efficiently choreographs public, private and parking access. The mixed-use condominium and retail project fronting on Bathurst Street and Loretta Lane contains nine floors of residential space atop ground level retail. The typical downtown Toronto laneway provides entry to six additional townhouses. On Bathurst, the upper levels set back in a massing strategy derived as a creative response to zoning envelope restrictions.
Repeated bays articulate along the Bathurst façade, modulating the length of this primary urban street wall. Constructed of dark grey brick, the material palette of the lower floors takes its cue from the surrounding building fabric and provides a strong visual foundation for the white pre-cast panels used for the upper levels. The master plan optimizes the existence of the onsite laneway to organize circulation. Retail uses are accessed off of Bathurst, while Loretta Lane leads to a parking garage and a private drop-off and entry for residents
