Tridel and Bazis are working together to bring a 57-storey tower designed by Rosario Varacalli to the northeast corner of Queen and Church streets in the Garden District of Downtown Toronto. Dubbed QueenChurch, the glass-clad tower will rise above a heritage base, with its entrance located off of Queen Street.

Upon entering, residents will be met with a fresh lobby appointed by II BY IV DESIGN that will feature a marble concierge desk, a uniquely swirling light fixture and artwork, and a lounge area fitted with comfortable seating. The ground level will also feature a mail room, and parcel storage.

The tower will hold a grand total of 445 suites that will range from 415 ft² studios to 811 ft² three-bedroom suites. While the majority of the suites will not have balconies, the suites of QueenChurch have been designed to have no wasted space, the thoughtful layouts making use of every square inch of each unit.

Suites will also feature high quality durable finishes, and oversized glass windows that offer views of the surrounding city, with all one bedroom units facing south over Queen Street.

Outside of its suites, QueenChurch will offer 16,000 ft² of amenities that will include a media room, chef's kitchen and private dining area, a collection of meeting and work spaces dedicated to those who work from home, a fitness centre, yoga studio and outdoor yoga deck, and an outdoor lounge. There will also be amenities for children, including a kid's zone and an outdoor playground on the fourth level, plus an outdoor dog run for the fur-babies on the seventh level.

The building also has its eclectic neighbourhood to offer, which features a park just west across Church street, and countless nearby as shops and restaurants. In addition, QueenChurch is served by the 501 Queen streetcar, or is a short walk to Queen subway station, making connection to the rest of the city easy. Soon enough, the Ontario Line will serve Queen station as well as Line 1.
