For the first time since 1967, Stanley is returning to the storied Church and Carlton intersection, but this time around, it'll be Tribute Communities—not the Toronto Maple Leafs—raising him up. Directly across the street from Maple Leaf Gardens, Stanley Condominiums is set to rise at the northeast corner of Church and Carlton, replacing yesterday's hockey glory with today's fast-paced condominium development. (Oh, how the city is changing).

Designed by Core Architects, the tower will join a growing high-rise cluster along the Church Street corridor north of Ryerson University. The development's 470 suites will range in size from 369 ft² to 1,070 ft², with one to three-bedroom configurations. Rising from a sleek street wall podium that integrates the building into the surrounding context—referencing the scale of Maple Leaf Gardens to the west—the tower will bring a distinctively sculpted presence to the local skyline.

The tower's massing, characterized by extruding conical volumes, gives many living spaces an almost wrap-around window wall, making for sun-filled suite interiors throughout the day. The configuration of the tower means that no unit faces just one direction, opening up more expansive views from many of the suites.

16,000 ft² of "hotel-inspired" amenities will be available to residents, with a collection of indoor and outdoor spaces—including the 8,000 ft² terrace seen above—situated atop the podium. Alongside the standard condominium amenities, including a fitness centre, a dining/party room, and an outdoor lounge, the building will feature a study hall catering to students. Given the project's close proximity to Ryerson University—as well as U of T—the development is expected to appeal to students, as well as older condominium buyers.

Meanwhile, a first look at the suite interiors shows off the panoramic views from Stanley's curving windows, with a more in-depth overview of the interior design coming soon. Appointed by Bryon Patton and Associates, the interiors will feature stainless steel appliances and clean, minimalist modern finishes.

The project's landscaping is set to be appointed by Ferris + Associates Inc., with fairly extensive plantings planned for the rooftop podium. Targeting a 2019 completion, the development is likely to have a big impact on the local streetscape, replacing the existing low-rise buildings with a distinct high-rise presence, which will include new retail at ground level.
