With registrations underway for Aragon's Eighty One Wellesley, work is continuing at the project's presentation centre in Toronto's Church-Wellesley Village. We had the opportunity to preview the pavilion this week to learn more of the project's details, including the finishes to be offered for suites in the 28-storey, Core Architects-designed condominium tower.

Stepping inside, visitors will be greeted at a reception area and main room filled with an abundance of natural light, streaming in from overhead skylights. The large central space is lined with colourful graphics, maps, and information about the surrounding Church-Wellesley Village and the nearby Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood to the northwest.

During our visit, the room's centrepiece—a scale model of Eighty One Wellesley—was being assembled by a technician from Myles Burke Architectural Models. Below, a closer look reveals sections of the scale model's interior lighting system midway up the tower and on the unfinished upper levels, with the exterior shell of the upper floors visible on the adjacent table in the image above.

Two model suites are presented, each featuring interiors and staging by Aragon's in-house design team. Each suite displays a different range of tones, with one unit utilizing lighter finishes and furnishings, and the other unit featuring warmer tones.

The suites—which we will explore in greater detail in a future article—give visitors a look at the finishes and design possibilities for the project's 179 units. A room connecting the model suites displays the three finish packages on offer. The "light" and "warm" finish packages from above are joined by a third "dark" package, not featured in the model suites.

Suites will range in size from 439 ft² to 1,107 ft², and start in the low $300,000s. We will return soon to get a fuller picture of what is on offer here, but in the meantime, make sure to check out our dataBase file, linked below for plenty of renderings and other information.
