First proposed back in 2013Great Gulf Homes and Hullmark's planned redevelopment of the former Sing Tao Daily News building site near Toronto's Parliament and Adelaide intersection has continued to evolve. The project resurfaced with an enlarged scope at the start of 2016 before appearing in front of the City of Toronto's Design Review Panel (DRP) in March. Now, an updated design for the project—branded as home: Power and Adelaide—has been unveiled, revealing a 21-storey, Core Architects-designed condominium development that's ready for marketing.

Named for its position at the intersection of Power and Adelaide Streets, the project would inject the Corktown area with a major boost of residential density, coming in the form of 550 1 to 3 bedroom units, with sizes ranging from 450 ft² up to 1,300 ft². Residents would have access to a wide selection of amenities appointed by the interior design division of TACT Architecture, including an artist workshop, a game room, a gym, a party room, a swimming pool and a steam room. Additional outdoor amenities will include an outdoor terrace with a fireplace, and a community garden.

A reimagined retail component will anchor the development to the Power and Adelaide intersection, creating an enhanced pedestrian experience on a block currently lacking much in the way of retail offerings. Though information about the specific retailers isn't expected to be confirmed for quite some time, the rendering depicts stores and cafes animating the project's street frontages.
