77 Charles West
The prestigious Bay-Bloor area of Yorkville will take on a new character in the near future when 77 Charles West begins to rise. Aspen Ridge has started construction on the highly successful, ultra-luxury condominium designed by celebrated architect Yann Weymouth, who is best known for the pyramid entrance to the Louvre Museum in Paris. His design expertise brings a European flavour to the condominium, which will be completely at home with the other architectural landmarks in the area such as the adjacent Royal Ontario Museum, which features the new Lee-Chin Crystal, and the Gardiner Museum. Located at Charles and Thomas Streets, 77 Charles West is in Toronto's cultural heart, only minutes from the Frank Gehry-designed Art Gallery of Ontario and the trendy galleries, shops and cuisine of Yorkville. Views from the condominium will encompass the lush campuses of the University of Toronto.
Powell & Bonnell created the incredible interiors, which appeal to the wide range of purchasers at 77 Charles West, and complement the building's gorgeous exterior. This condominium will feature a glass curtain wall cladding system, which is rare in residential buildings. This technology offers a more energy-efficient building envelope, resulting in the ability to accommodate larger and more flexible suite configurations. The generous sizes of the light-filled suites are a major draw for the discriminating purchasers here, who expect sophisticated surroundings. ""The major theme for this contemporary condominium is understated opulence,"" says Christene De Gasperis of Aspen Ridge. ""For the whole building, the feeling is welcoming and calming. The glass exterior makes the views from within the suites an important part of the everyday experience, along with 24-hour valet parking and concierge service. Residents of this building will feel pampered and catered to.""
77 Charles West is an intimate and exclusive 16-storey building that encompasses 47 spectacular suites, each with at least one balcony or terrace and an outdoor gas barbecue hookup. Amenities will include well-equipped exercise facilities and an attractive boardroom, and the suites are highlighted by sumptuous appointments. Evoking an essence of graciousness and timelessness, ceiling heights will soar 10 to 12 feet, and flooring choices include pre-engineered plank solid hardwood; marble, limestone, porcelain or granite tiles; and plush wool carpet. Downsview Kitchens feature Viking Professional Series appliances, and the bathrooms offer Downsview cabinetry and Kohler fixtures to provide the ultimate in quality and luxury.
