Charlie Condos climbs closer to completion

A project of Great Gulf Homes, Charlie Condos was designed by Toronto’s Diamond Schmitt Architects. The building’s interiors are being designed by Cecconi Simone Inc., while landscape architects Janet Rosenberg + Associates rounds out the project team.

The complex includes a 6-storey section clad in black brick at the southwest corner of the property, with a 36-floor glass tower rising from the east side at the corner of King Street West and Charlotte Street. The roof (7th floor) of the low-rise section is where recreational amenities for condo residents will be located. These facilities will include a fitness centre, aerobic & yoga studio, dining room, lounge, billiard room and media room, along with a fully-landscaped terrace and outdoor pool.

Below are several artistic illustrations of the building that appear on the Charlie Condos project website, followed by a series of construction photos I have shot since the beginning of this year.
