The Lash Group and The Goldman Group will soon be adding a new 18-storey, Richmond Architects-designed boutique condominium development on the southwest edge of Toronto's prestigious Forest Hill neighbourhood. The Barrington Condominium Flats will bring 93 new homes to Bathurst Street, north of St. Clair. To get a better understanding of what will be built here, we turn to the scale model currently on display inside of The Barrington's presentation centre.
The building's Bathurst Street ground floor frontage will offer retail sheltered from the elements by a canopy, and street trees to soften the public realm. Blank podium walls to the north and south sides are where the Barrington will be built up against adjacent properties, creating a continuous urban street wall along Bathurst.
As seen above, the he second through sixth floors will feature a vertical expanse of copper-hued cladding, adding a bold shot of colour to the building's street presence. Atop the podium on the quieter west side of the building, residents will have an outdoor terrace with barbecues, offering lounging and seating areas. Just inside are amenity spaces for cooking, dining, and entertaining, or relaxing with a game of pool, or just enjoying programs from the multi-media wall.
The tower's main exterior expression comes from vertical fins on the building's east and west facades, emphasizing the building's height, and adding visual interest to the exterior. Suites inside range in size from 555 to 2,177 square feet, and start in the mid $300,000s.
