As construction progresses on SQ Condos—the first condominium development in Tridel's master-planned redevelopment of Toronto's Alexandra Park community—sales are well under way for the follow-up phase, dubbed SQ2. Like sibling development SQ, SQ2 will boast a cubist-inspired design by Teeple Architects, while SQ2 will can also claim an adjacent townhome block that shares its modern design with its taller siblings.

The project's five Teeple-designed townhome units will feature elements that build upon the clean lines of the LGA Architectural Partners-desgined Atkinson Co-Op townhouses being constructed alongside first phase SQ, while cranking the style up a major notch. Unlike the Co-op's rental replacement units—now nearing occupancy—the towns at SQ2 are market value condo units. Sized at over 2,000 square feet and in the price range of $1.4 million, the towns will rise just north of SQ2 and its 169 residential suites. A landscaped courtyard will sit between the towns and the tower.

Building upon on the design language established for the first buildings in the community rebuild, the townhomes at SQ2 will be clad in a combination of charcoal-hued brick and dark-brown anodized aluminum, punctuated by outsized beveled white window frames, adding some real verve to the exterior design.

The completed condominium and townhome development will include a number of amenity spaces for residents, like a yoga/pilates studio, steam rooms, a sauna, a fireside lounge, and a party room with kitchen.
