At the 2009 Toronto Urban Design Awards, Mayor Miller described this project as “a skyscraper put on its side over a subway system.” Twenty Gothic is an eight-storey, L- shaped condominium that spans over the west end of High Park subway station. The design and development team was able to resolve complex urban design and techni- cal challenges to bring this infill opportunity to life, offering new public green space, increased density along the Bloor/Danforth transit line, and direct subway access
for its residents. Nestled in the middle of a city block, Twenty Gothic is hidden by a canopy of mature trees. Intimate and understated, the brick façade and quality fin- ishes compliment the surrounding homes. With 175 units offering a mix of unit types and sizes in a desirable neighbourhood, it has attracted a variety of owners includ- ing young families. One of the first condominium buildings in decades to straddle the subway line, Twenty Gothic set precedents for acoustical and vibration engineering solutions enabling it to span the subway while reducing sound and vibration in the building.


The purple lavender trim will be annoying in about - wait - it's annoying right now.

What's with the off-the-shelf, suburban garage doors?

Could they not have hidden the bat cave doors? Nobody wants to look or hear garage doors.

The building is tiresome. Also: they need a new photographer. These photos kill what chance the project had of looking good. Look at the colours in, well, all of the photos actually. Tom Arban is THE MAN for architectural photography in Toronto (or anywhere, probably).

Twenty Gothic? Nah.. just rename it to the " bat cave " and look at it at night when the sun is down and no one can see. In the words of my friend from Compton in LA... this place is fugly ya'll
