Earlier this summer, we introduced 159SW Condos, a new project from Alterra Group of Companies coming to the southwest corner of Sherbourne and Wellesley. Named for its address and its corner at the intersection, the Richmond Architects-designed building will rise 36 storeys. In our introductory story about the development, we provided an overview of the project covering its exterior design, condominium units, and amenity spaces.

Now, a rendering of 159SW provides a first glimpse at the interior design of the building with a look at the U31-appointed contemporary lobby space. Hosting a concierge desk outfitted with marble finishes, the polygonal form of the tower is referenced in a number of different geometric forms, including an under-lit ceiling feature with warm wood tones, a hexagonal ceiling coffer, with punches of yellow adding a vibrant shot of colour to the black-and-white mix.

Beyond the lobby space, residents of 159SW's 360 condominium suites will have access to amenities on three floors, including an indoor fitness studio with a yoga room and a sauna, a ground-floor pet washing station, an on-site car-share program, and a bike parking and repair station. Residents will also enjoy two party rooms, a games room with billiards, foosball and table tennis areas, a student zone with study rooms, a library, and a wi-fi enabled lounge and conference area. Outdoor amenities will include an outdoor barbecue/dining/lounging area, and a 360 degree outdoor running track and fresh-air fitness equipment park on the podium roof.  

159SW is offering units sized from 470 ft² to 872 ft² and priced ranging from the low $300,000s up to $599,000. Occupancy for the project is tentatively scheduled for October, 2019.

We will return with additional information as marketing for the project unveils further details.
