This existing downtown condominium built in the early 1980’s contains a combination of residential units with generous amenity spaces, and a large retail arcade with a large subterranean theatre. The complex required a complete refinishing of the exterior façade and all interior public spaces.

Ground level retail is to be retrofitted with expansive glazing, modern canopies and elegant signage which will contribute to a successful streetscape.  The retail arcade was upgraded with new finishes, lighting, signage and special feature walls, all designed to increase usage and enhance visitor experience.

The residential lobby, amenity spaces and residential corridors were all upgraded to a clean modern standard expressing the urban sophistication deserving of this downtown location. This was achieved with the use of bright, durable stone finish and wood feature panels.  Lighting was used to highlight feature walls and create special episodes in the building.
