About the Project

Charlie condominium anchors a new urban corner in downtown Toronto. The sleek 36-storey building with a six-storey podium addresses a new public square that extends the sidewalk café culture of the King Street warehouse district and features Ballast, a bronze sculpture by acclaimed Toronto-born artist Jed Lind. Activated by retail at grade on both King St. and Charlotte St., Charlie connects with its neighbourhood. The black brick masonry is a modern nod to the historic roots of this one-time industrial loft district. Unexpected details such as the warm yellow soffits at grade are repeated above the double-height 7th floor terrace to distinguish and unify the building’s two shifting tower volumes. Slim panels of fritted glass extend the height of the building, framed by narrow mullions that add additional texture to the façade and create dramatic shadow effects in certain light.
