Featuring striking architecture and one of the city's most transformative waterfront pockets, it's also immediately next door to the site of an innovative new "smart city" that has just been proposed by Google's Sidewalk Labs.
Most recently, it’s been revealed that hariri pontarini architects will be designing the project, a visionary, Toronto-based architectural firm, responsible for some of the most high-end condominiums, houses and cultural institutions across the globe.
Lakeside Residences rise 49 storeys and will occupy the eastern portion of the site. The design is set to compliment its sister building Lakeside Lake Suites which will rise 39-storeys. The buildings will be connected by a shared podium which will form one sculptural element.
The Lake Residences include building A and B which include city suites in tower A from floors 2 to 14, tower B include park suites: floors 2 to 15, sky suites: floors 16 to 39 and upper sky suites: floors 40 to 49.
Lake Suites are in the second tower which is 39 storey tall.
As David Pontarini explained, these towers draw inspiration from two sails on a sailboat with a design that appears to catch the wind and features gently curved exteriors. The western portion of the site will involve a mix of townhomes and mid-rise buildings, with possible retail or commercial space.
The lobby's timeless design combines high grade natural elements to create an intimate space that resembles that of a boutique hotel. Sleek marble tiles and crafted wood panels provide a sophisticated conceive desk. The attractive contemporary appeal of the residences begins from the the lobby and extends all the way to your suite.
Lakeside Residences suite interiors will be designed by one of Toronto's best interior decor firms, Cecconi-Simone. Featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, designer kitchens, expansive bathrooms and dazzling views of the lake, these units will be as functional as they are gorgeous.
Amenities include an outdoor pool and sun deck that overlook the harbour and feature private cabanas. A fully-equipped gym, a party room with kitchen and dining facilities, and a children's playroom are just some of the amenities designed to make this a complete community.
The entire site will be designed to compliment the burgeoning pedestrian environment of the East Bayfront, with an arching pedestrian walkway that will connect 215 Lake Shore Boulevard East to a new arts and cultural development to the west, and to Sherbourne Commons to the east.
Location & Neighbourhood
Condos in the East Bayfront neighbourhood present a great investment opportunity. The pocket is part of what we call the “Lower Yonge Precinct Plan,” an ongoing planning project spearheaded by Waterfront Toronto and the city to address the substantial growth expected for the area.
A picturesque location right on the shore of Lake Ontario, it’s an area that is ideally located, but has been underutilized until recently. One of the most recent transformations the neighbourhood has seen is the Queen’s Quay revitalization.
Lakeside Residences saw the introduction of a tree-lined, multi-use promenade created along the waterfront, now popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists. In addition, a new streetcar service was added, which now connects Union Station to the East Bayfront area. It scores a 84 on its Walk Score and a near-perfect 99 on its Transit Score.
There are several developments along this corridor either in the construction or pre-construction phase, including a large arts-and-culture-inspired project that will see new campuses for both OCAD and George Brown, as well as gallery space and a retail and restaurant galleria. Just to the west, another development will add significant office space, creating room for approximately 2,000 jobs.
The Lakeside Residences site is also immediately next to the new "Quayside" community, proposed by Google's Sidewalk Labs. This exciting project will see 12-acres of land turned into a technology and urbanism-inspired hub that includes residential, office space, new streets and a new headquarters for Google. It's primed to make Toronto a global technology destination.
The Financial District - where it’s estimated almost 200,000 people work - is only minutes away by streetcar, as is the historic St. Lawrence Market and the velvety shores of Cherry Beach, a popular entertainment and relaxation spot in the summer.
