Construction is well underway on phase one at Daniels Waterfront - City of the Arts, a 280,000 ft² office component front onto Queen's Quay, and the stage is now set for the residential elements of the mixed-use project in Toronto's East Bayfront district. Earlier this year, marketing commenced for the Giannone Petriconne-designed 45-storey Lighthouse Tower, which along with the soon-to-launch 36-storey Lighthouse East Tower will bring the critical mass necessary to support the retail components of the community. The two towers will rise from a podium boasting an arts-oriented college campus, along with shops, cafés, and restaurants.

Gearing up for the launch of the 36-storey Lighthouse East Tower, marketing agency Montana Steele has released a 3D flyby video showcasing various components of the new community, beginning with an overview of Daniels Waterfront's position on the city skyline. The video highlights Daniels Waterfront's connection with the area's premiere public space, Sugar Beach, through Sugar Beach North, a new northerly extension of the public space that will extend onto the site. Finally, the video shows us where residential amenities offered at the Lighthouse Tower will be located, including rooftop pool and lounge, before ending with "The Yard", the shop-lined pedestrian mews which will tie the development together.

Sales are open for the Lighthouse Tower, where a range of suites start in price from the low-$300,000s. Expected to launch later this Fall, the Lighthouse East Tower is currently accepting registrations, with more details to emerge soon.
