About the Project

eq2 at Equinox joins the successful first phase tower in the heart of Scarborough Town Centre. Fronting onto Albert Campbell Square, eq2 makes a unique architectural statement on Scarborough’s skyline. The Tower rises to 30 storeys and rests on an 8 storey podium. The proposal uses the horizontal nature of the podium to anchor the verticality of the tower and this relationship is further emphasized through the use of horizontal precast elements together with vertical expanses of glazing. The podium houses a mix of residential and amenity spaces while also integrating a 2 storey pedestrian arcade which serves grade-related retail. The podium provides a backdrop to the public park expansion across the site and frames the pedestrian realm of the square. The arcade also serves as a covered pedestrian thoroughfare which connects Town Centre Court and the Scarborough Civic Centre while providing the catalyst for programmatic integration onto the public square.
