“Toronto condo design is set to take a major leap forward” via”BlogTO”
There’s something exciting happening to Toronto condo design. You won’t notice the change on the skyline just yet, but after decades of glass box designs, the city is poised to embrace far more daring architecture.
There are a handful of projects in the works right now that are set to redefine the conventional condo tower in Toronto. The interventions are various — from super tall towers to vertical forests — but each shows a willingness to embrace bold designs rarely seen in the city today.
Of this brave new crop of buildings, Bjarke-Ingels’ ziggurat-style condo planned for King West has probably received the most hype. While it’s design has undergone some tweaks since it was first released, if anything, the valley and peak motif has actually become more clear.
