Hines, and Tridel, Canada’s leading condominium developer, yesterday announced the selection of 3XN as the Design Architect of the developers’ latest residential project at Bayside Toronto. The project is a key part of Waterfront Toronto’s $1.1 billion dollar master planned development of this 13-acre site, featuring two million square feet of residential, commercial and cultural uses. Its distinctive L-shaped design will define the new condominium.
This shape ensures not only views out across the water for residents, but allows ample natural light to reach the public areas at ground level. Featuring a dynamic architectural form, the building steps down from its highest point at its north-western point where it meets the city edge, to an amenity space on the 7th floor, before rising back up towards its eastern façade. Selected as the building’s Design Architects, following a design competition, 3XN will be working with Toronto-based architecture firm, Kirkor Architects, who will serve as the project’s Architect of Record.
