A forlorn parking lot currently sits at the southeast corner of Bay and Gerrard, surrounded by a mix of older hotel, office and residential buildings. This last remaining prime downtown site in the area is poised for redevelopment. The proposed 50 storey building is conceived as four shifting boxes stacked on top of one another, each defined by its own material palette, fenestration pattern and balcony type. The design allows for different responses to the hierarchy of streets, mitigates the environmental conditions such as solar gain and heat loss at each building façade, and maximizes opportunities for views at various levels, 43 Gerrard Condos will be a dream.
The lowest box will be a 5 storeys podium housing residential units and grade related retail spaces while the other three boxes are strictly dedicated to residential uses. Common amenity areas are provided at the sixth floor spilling out onto a large rooftop terrace. On the ground level, overhangs and green walls are proposed for pedestrian comfort and streetscape enhancement. A shared lane also forms part of the design as a mid-block connection to improve vehicular and pedestrian transportation flow in the area.
43 Gerrard Condos is a new preconstruction condo development located at 43 Gerrard Street West in Downtown Toronto (Gerrard & Bay).
43 Gerrard St Condos will be 50 storeys high hosting a total of 600 condo suites.
43 Gerrard Condos development site is the parking lot at the south east corner of Bay & Gerrard, right beside the Delta Chelsea Hotel. The Condo is designed as 4 shifting boxes stacked on top of each other.
