A project of Great Gulf and Lifetime Developments, X2 Condos was designed by Toronto’s Rudy Wallman Architects Ltd. The tower will have 470 suites.
This artistic rendering, which appears on the project website, depicts a view of the 49-storey tower from the northeast.
X2 Condos will be a sister to the X Condominium tower on the north side of Charles Street (seen here in a view from the southeast on August 30 2011). The 44-storey X Condos, which opened for occupancy two years ago, was designed by architectsAlliance. Together, the developers say, X and X2 will stand as an eastern “gateway to Yorkville/Bloor.”
