Danish architects selected for phase 2 of Bayside Toronto

Toronto, April 22 (CINEWS): Real estate firm Hines and Tridel, Canada’s leading condominium developer, announced the selection of award-winning Danish firm 3XN as the Design Architect of the developers’ latest waterfront residential project at Bayside Toronto. Bayside2
Characterizing his approach to the waterfront site, architect Kim Herforth Nielsen described his firm’s intention to create a vertical neighbourhood, with the family home as its inspiration.
“The design puts people first, paying particular attention to the quality of views, space and lifestyle. The development will command extraordinary views of the water, neighbouring parks, and the city skyline,” says architect, Kim Herforth Nielsen.
Located along the water’s edge on Queens Quay East in the developing East Bayfront neighbourhood, the new condominium will be defined by its unique L-shape design which ensures not only views out across the water for residents, but also provides ample natural light to the public areas at ground level. Featuring a dynamic and distinctive architectural form, the building steps down from its highest point at its north-western edge where it faces the city, to an amenity space on the 7th floor, before rising back up towards its eastern façade.
Herforth Nielsen adds that “while the stepped L-shape form provides a sculptural quality to the building, the large garden terraces, are the hallmark of the design.” He says that the terraces will “activate the façade, enlivening it with texture, colour, depth and variety, while imbuing it with a human scale.”
Selected as the building’s Design Architects following a design competition, 3XN will be working with award-winning Toronto-based architecture firm, Kirkor Architects, which will serve as the project’s Architect of Record.
The proposed condominium design by 3XN will be the next residential phase developed by Hines and Tridel at Bayside Toronto, following the successful launch of Aqualina and Aquavista (in 2013 and 2014), which were designed by the Miami-based architecture firm, Arquitectonica.
“The overwhelming sales success of Aqualina and Aquavista at Bayside Toronto reinforced the partners’ shared vision that this is a site without parallel,” says Tridel executive, Andrew DelZotto. Together with Hines, Tridel is thrilled to welcome 3XN to Toronto, and excited by what the firm will mean to the City’s future.”
