About the Project

Located on a narrow 1,926 m2 site on Charles Street East, CASA’s slender 42-storey point-block tower sits above a four-storey podium that houses a parking garage. Screening the garage is a dramatically compressed lobby with amenity space at grade, and on a mezzanine level accessed via a custom-designed glass and steel staircase. The fully glazed space is accented by a three-storey high hyacinth feature wall and oak veneer wall sculpture, creating animation and intensity at street level. Residential floors are laid out in arrangements of between eight and ten units per floor, single loaded around a central elevator core. Units have been planned using a system of sliding partitions that permits great flexibility for changes in spatial configuration and uses. A continuous perimeter balcony provides both a generous amount of exterior amenity, and passive sun shading for the interiors of the extensively glazed building. The roof of the podium and first floor of the tower make up a 1,865 m2 indoor-outdoor amenity space with a lap pool, barbecue pit, event space and billiards room with fireplace.
