We have been profiling new projects by The Daniels Corporation in Regent Park over the last two days. Today we make a big leap west to look at one of Daniels' projects at Mississauga's City Centre, namely Limelight Condominiums. Limelight consists of two towers, 22-storeys to the south, 32 to the north, joined at the base by a four and five-storey podium. There are also townhomes to the west side of the site. Limelight is designed by Kirkor Architects, with interiors by HOK.
You may remember the original rendering of the project, issued when the south tower was released. That rendering, below, features a stained-glass style lantern at the top. Compare that with the more flamboyantly-designed lanterns now pictured above.
Here are some closer views of the new rooflines.
You will notice from these model shots by UrbanToronto member Jasonzed that the flamboyant lanterns will feature on the south and east sides predominantly: from the north and west the rooftops will be more subdued.
While the lantern has gotten snazzier, so has how Limelight will meet the street. The original plan can be seen in the rendering below: all lines simple, and at right angles.
The new plan brings the diagonals from the roof down to street level, making for a far more distinctive treatment. The buff coloured bricks above have also been replaced with a darker and more dramatic look.
We have three views of common areas within Limelight; first the lobby, then the gym (with the parallelogram ball courts), and finally the sunset-facing terraces atop the podium.
Limelight, as mentioned above, includes townhomes as well. First, the site plan, then a rendering of the townhomes.
To finish up, a couple of recent construction photos by Jasonzed again, first from March 25, then from the 27th.
