That glass- and aluminium-clad tower is Peter Street Condominiums, a project of CentreCourt Developments in Toronto. Designed by Toronto’s architectsAlliance, Peter Street Condominiums will contain 330 residential units in a sleek 29-storey tower rising above an 11-storey podium at 328 – 340 Adelaide Street West. A 5-level underground parking garage will have 118 parking spaces.
CentreCourt filed its development application with the City on August 13 2010, and city planners issued a preliminary report on the rezoning application on November 4, 2010, outlining the project in full detail. Toronto City Council approved the development on February 7 2011.
Podium and tower suites
Tthe building features a variety of suites in studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom configurations. Suites in the podium include a 303 square foot studio with an 88 square foot balcony and a 357 square foot studio with no balcony. The podium also has four different 1-bedroom layouts. The smallest (483 square feet) and the largest (693 square feet) don’t have balconies but two in between-sized units do, including a 582 square foot 1-bedroom + den with a 70 square foot balcony, and a 607 square foot 1-bedroom + study with a roomier 105 square foot balcony.
In the tower, the smallest unit is a 329 square foot studio with a 72 square foot balcony. A variety of 1-bedrooms in the tower range from 475 to 609 square feet; some have balconies, while others don’t. 2-bedrooms range from 610 square feet with a 133 square foot balcony, to a 772 square foot unit with a 158 square foot balcony. And there are two styles of 3-bedroom suites: a 741 square foot unit with 169 square foot balcony, and a a 772 square foot suite with 158 square foot balcony.
The podium will offer street-level retail along with office space on the second and third floors. The building’s recreational amenities will occupy the fourth and fifth levels. The fourth floor will feature a Totum PS Club with fitness equipment, a Spin room and a yoga/aerobics room, all planned by Totum LifeScience. The fifth floor will boast a lounge with a bar and dining area, a billiards room, a theatre lounge, and a guest suite.

Below are two artistic illustrations of how the Peter Street Condominiums will look, followed by a series of photos I have taken at the condo site since November 2010. I previously described the project in March 7 2011 post.
This artistic illustration of the 40-storey aluminum and glass tower appears on the Peter Street Condominiums website. The condo building was designed by architectsAlliance of Toronto.
This artistic rendering of the tower’s 11-storey podium also appears on the Peter Street Condominiums website. The podium will have street-level retail, along with office space on the second and third floors.
