At the corner of Church and Richmond streets in downtown Toronto, Madison Group is preparing to launch ALiAS. The design of the 45-story development – by Teeple Architects and Turner Fleischer Architects – will stand out from the rest of the city skyline with its textured and scattered gold-colored window frames, bursting against a neutral background like bubbles rising in a champagne flute, capturing the light with their metallic finish.
While the upper floors are clad in aluminum framed windows and accented by the geometric golden ‘bubbles’, the medium of choice for the ALiAS podium is brick, mixing a black glazed brick – which will bring the glow to the building. at street level – with charcoal bricks. The bricks will also form fins along the sides of the podium that will act as sunshades around the windows, providing shade against direct sunlight on parts of the glass panes as the sun makes its daily way across the sky.
On the ground floor, the development will include shops, including a space that will open onto a new park to the immediate west of ALiAS. (198m² of space will be dedicated to the City for the green spaces of the Alias site.)
The development will house 497 residential suites available in a range of one to three bedroom configurations. Residents will also enjoy over 18,000 sq. Ft. Of indoor and outdoor amenities, including a rooftop terrace and lounge area. The interiors will be custom designed by Studio Munge. The building will also accommodate pets.
In addition to the recently released images of the condo, Madison Group has shared a short video that gives us an idea of the characteristic look of the building.
