The rebuild of Toronto's Alexandra Park community into a mixed-income neighbourhood is well underway just northwest of the Spadina and Queen intersection. Part of Alexandra Park's transformation will come in the form of new market housing, and the first new market condominium development in the community, SQ, now stands seven storeys tall, halfway towards its final height of 14 storeys. As construction continues on it, sales are in progress for the second phase, SQ2 At Alexandra Park, which will add 169 market condominium units to the community.
Like the first phase, SQ2 will rise 14 storeys and feature an avant-garde design by Teeple Architects. Recently released renderings are now giving us a look at the U31-appointed amenity spaces that awaits future residents of the development.
Residents and visitors will be greeted by a lofty lobby space with a concierge desk, as well as lounge seating adjacent to a fireplace. The lobby's design fuses a modern, high contrast and angular aesthetic with traditional finishes like marble and hardwood.
Beyond the lobby and concierge desk, the ground floor and one basement level will be the site of several amenity spaces, the layout of which can be seen in the diagram included below.
A party room with a kitchen and an attached fireplace lounge will provide residents with a generous space to entertain guests, host dinner parties, or simply unwind.
For larger dinner parties, a private dining room will also be available.
Immediately adjacent to the private dining area, health-minded residents of SQ2 will have access to a well-equipped fitness centre and an attached yoga room.
Some of SQ2's roof area at the north end of the building will be an outdoor amenity terrace, with a sun deck, hot tub, a barbecue and dining area.
SQ2's 169 units represent just a small portion of the 1,540 market condo units coming to the Alexandra Park neighbourhood. The community redevelopment also includes the construction of 333 Toronto Community Housing rental replacement units, and the refurbishing of an additional 473 units of the Atkinson Housing Co-op.
