Just south of Queen West's shops, one of Toronto's newest residential developments has just topped off at Peter and Adelaide Streets. Now standing at its final height of 426 feet, the 40-storey Peter Street Condominiums is an architectsAlliance design, developed by CentreCourt as their first condominium project since their founding in 2010 by Andrew Hoffman.
Hoffman, now President at CentreCourt, was Chief Operating Officer of Menkes Developments Ltd from 1989 through 2010 before creating his the new company. CentreCourt has since undertaken three more high-rise condominium developments. "It's a very exciting time for our team at CentreCourt. In addition to topping off Peter Street, Karma and INDX are coming out of the ground and we will start construction at Core in the next few months. In all, we have nearly 2,000 units under construction and we feel like this is only the first chapter of the CentreCourt story" says Shamez Virani, Vice President of CentreCourt.
To celebrate the official topping-off of Peter Street Condominiums, UrbanToronto was invited for a ride up the building's construction hoist, to the very top of the tower for some of the breathtaking views visible from the top of the tower.
Those moving in to the higher floors of Peter Street Condominiums will be situated so they can see Lake Ontario and the Toronto Islands through the Entertainment District's growing cluster of high-rise towers.
From the top of Peter Street Condominiums, one can see stunning views in all directions. Starting at the tower's south end, the view is dominated by the CN Tower, Rogers Centre, and much of the Entertainment District down below.
The view from the west side of the building is completely unobstructed thanks to the pronounced decrease in density as Adelaide Street approaches Bathurst. Views looking west stretch for tens of kilometres, with the western terminus of Adelaide Street in the foreground and views spanning all the way to the growing Humber Bay skyline in Etobicoke.
Looking east from the top of Peter Street Condos, one can see the newly built Cinema Tower with neighbouring Pinnacle On Adelaide, now also topped-off next door to it, while our increasingly dense Financial District looms in the background.
Looking north-east from Peter Street Condos, the view of Downtown Toronto's rapidly growing north end grows larger by the day. In the centre of the image below, No. 210 Residences on Simcoe is easily recognized by its multi-toned blue cladding, while Aura at College Park, topped-off at 78 storeys, can be seen in the background towering above its neighbours.
Heading down through the building to a nearly-completed unit on the third floor, we get an idea at what residents of the building will soon be moving in to. Interiors at Peter Street Condominiums were designed by award-winning design firm Cecconi Simone. Units feel quite spacious, with features like high ceilings and integrated fixtures in the kitchen, which help to maximize usable space in the units.
Views from the lower floors of the building look out onto the historic historic brick and stone structures of Adelaide and Peter Streets below. Residents of these lower floors will feel connected to the sights, sounds, and overall charm of the neighbourhood.
Balconies are included with most units, large enough space for a bistro table set and planters.
