75 St. Nicholas Street, Toronto,
Urban Capital Property Group
GFA 209,079 sq.ft.
This 29-storey building eloquently reflects its surroundings. The tower transitions down to the scale of the homes via a brick turn of the century warehouse that was torn down. Bricks reclaimed and rebuilt a facade carefully incorporating the Planing Mill Building into the three-storey brick building at 65-67 St. Nicholas Street.
By incorporating the Planing Mill Building as a design element at the building’s base, it stays true to the street’s heritage. Here, the past comes together with modern luxuries and amenities to create this classic address. The remainder of the three-storey podium will be comprised of the lobby, townhouse units, and indoor amenity space.
The warehouse contains units, and its roof houses the outdoor amenity space. The warehouse also compliments the brick podium of the tower. The entrance is marked by a large precast and glass opening accentuated by a Brazilian walnut clad canopy.
The tower is a state-of-the-art glass enclosure that commands beautiful views of downtown Toronto. Balconies are staggered in a creative pattern to lighten the structure and provide private outdoor space to the majority of the units.
