A project of The Conservatory Group, The Milan Condominium complex was designed by E.I. Richmond Architects Ltd. of Toronto.
The project website shows that suites with a variety of different sizes and floorplans are still available. There are two 1-bedroom layouts, including the 577-square-foot Bergamo and the 626-square-foot LaScala; three 1-bedroom + den, including the 643-square-foot Naples, the 652-square-foot Bellini, and the 682-square foot Torino; five 2-bedrooms, ranging from the 777-square -foot Venice to the 907-square-foot Verona; five 2-bedroom + den that vary in size from the 802-square-foot Capri to the spacious 1,319-square-foot Donatello; and only one 3-bedroom configuration, the 1,192-square-foot Pavarotti.
