As the King West district nears capacity with condominium projects, developers are beginning to make the move north, with a particular interest on Bathurst Street. Harhay Developments and Carttera Private Equities appear to have caught on early with an exciting new project, Oneeleven Condominiums, currently in the works at Bathurst and Adelaide. This weekend the sales centre will open to brokers, who will get the first glimpse of the highly anticipated project. An official Grand Opening to the public will be on April 28.

The modular design is playful, with flat rectangular volumes separated by protruding balconies and mounted by lush green terraces. The materiality on the lower portion provides a strong contrast to the extensive glass used above; corner balconies and rectilinear windows, oriented vertically to draw the eye upwards, pierce the brick façade, which references the neighbourhood's warehouse aesthetic.

The two-storey ground floor lobby, designed by II by IV Design Associates, is a sensuous space highlighted by contrasting dark and light tones; the dramatic wall of blue tiger's eye competes with the undulating wood wall next to the lobby lounge.

Designed by Toronto firm Core Architects, the building will reach 17 storeys and contain a total of 255 units, which range from one to two storeys, and start in the mid-200's. The brokers' event will be held tomorrow, April 14, at the project's sales centre at 111 Bathurst Street.
