UrbanToronto recently got a chance to see the progress at X The Condominium, Great Gulf's homage to Miesian modernism touched by some Mondrianesque whimsey at Jarvis and Charles Streets in Toronto. Our tour concentrated on the Lobby, the Pool, and the views from up top of the architectsAlliance-designed building. X's stunning lobby, designed by Cecconi Simone, similarly tips its hat to Mies van der Rohe by bringing the feel of the travertine-clad Toronto-Dominion Centre lobby to this 44-storey residential tower.

X's pool extends perpendicularly from the tower across the back of the podium.

Up top, the views from X are, unsurprisingly, some of the most stunning in Toronto. Owners on the top floor will enjoy 12-foot ceilings. This unit sits in the southwest corner of the building.
