Rising from a three-storey stone clad podium is a slender tower defined by the undulating balconies of its northern and southern façades. Inspired by the adjacent lake, the visual waves of the glass balconies will draw energy vertically upwards, making Jade Waterfront a distinctive address on Etobicoke’s former motel strip. Its simple, contemporary design is highlighted by glass balconies, tinted a distinct aqua blue, creating a synergy between the building, Lake Ontario, and the sky. The balconies will also be unusually generous, with many averaging up to 400 square feet. According to Quadrangle Principal Ted Shore, “The balconies are more than simply aesthetic, they will extend the living space to the outdoors, inviting residents to enjoy the natural environment within reach. Also, their varying depths will provide passive sun shading to the extensively glazed building.”
Ideal Development for Community and Leisure Activities
The three podium levels of the building will feature yoga and fitness studios, a pet grooming area, a generous, tall lobby, and a lounge and entertainment area connected directly with an outdoor patio facing Lake Ontario. A third floor terrace with an outdoor putting green, a communal garden area, and a swimming pool overlooking Lake Ontario will surround indoor dining and other amenities. To enhance Jade Waterfront’s leisurely atmosphere and its presence within the neighbourhood, the design also includes a sensitively-‐designed public park over its underground garage which connects Jade Waterfront residents to the water, the Martin Goodman and Humber Valley trails, waterfront cafes and marinas. Only minutes from downtown Toronto by bicycle or auto, the site is close to the highways, the streetcar and the GO Train, providing easy access to Downtown and the airport. A retreat from the fast pace of the bustling city, Jade Waterfront will offer residents a resort-like atmosphere ideal for a holistic lifestyle.
