1Thousand Bay Condos
U/C | 32 st | 101 m | Downtown

Skyscrapercity forum thread

From talkcondo.com


QUOTE=Taller, Better;129008727]Playing with balconies on an otherwise simple box seems to be an increasingly common way of trying to come up with something "iconic" without spending a lot of money. In this case, it seems to be another triumph of form over function, as some people get piddly balconies, and others get spacious ones. Riding my bike north on Bay I couldn't help thinking it looked random and even a bit messy/disorganised. :

Anyway, now we have new and better renders to enjoy.

I can't believe how much it towers above Nautilus, which looks monstrously tall every time I bike by it.

Forgive my ignorance but why are they building so many highrises at Humber Bay Shores? Is it meant to become somewhat of a new Mississauga-style area?

when I look at all the glass clad condos going up, it gives me goosebumps. can just imagine the views, but at the same time I am starting to worry about the sustainability and energy efficiency of these condos - heating and cooling. when the skin of these towers starts to deteriorate, there are going to be some hefty bills to replace them.

My room in a glass condo tower holds heat pretty decently. Although it's about 10 years old and insulating technology has surely improved since then.

Okay, I've whittled down the Exhibit Brokers' Opening to these pics, most focusing on the model:




Roy Varacalli, architect of Exhibit and partner at Bazis, Barbara Lawlor, president of Baker Real Estate, and Michael Gold, president of Bazis






The Bloor Street frontage




Terraces where the cubes shift are quite large








A laneway will be maintained between Exhibit and MuseumHouse




The 9th storey rooftop garden sits above the integrated parking garage












The sales centre features touch screens which feature floor plans and full info about the project.




It was a big opening. Sales to the public still to come...

Toronto turned its back on the lake for most of its history. It was a place for industry, roads, and rail. The lake shore is being transformed and lake views are becoming highly desirable.

All glass is the current trend and the younger generation who are demanding it tend not to be sophisticated shoppers when it comes to real estate because it's new to them. They see a shiny object and they want it. Only later are they realizing that all glass makes little sense in our climate.

They're sweltering like green houses in the summer and expensive to heat in the winter. Developers are putting them up as fast as they can with little to no attention paid to quality and durability. The life span of most of it is 10-12 years. Some of it will last 20 years while some starts to fail as soon as it's installed. We're already seeing it. Some condo owners get pools of water on their living room floors every time it rains.

In 15 years these people are going to be in for a massive shock when these glass facades fail completely and they need to be replaced. Their condo fees are going to shoot through the roof. Toronto is finally seeing a move away from all glass condo towers but it will be too late for tens of thousands of people.

Consider yourself fortunate. Some of the new all glass condo towers should fair ok, but the bulk of them will be quite problematic over the long term.

33 Avenue Road to be Toronto's First 'Vertical Forest'

Quote:
Toronto's Yorkville neighbourhood could become the site of the city's first 'vertical forest.' New renderings for the long-awaited 33 Avenue Road project bring to light a new design aesthetic for the project, with plantings along the east and west elevations of the tower. The latest renderings of the Zeidler Partnership Architects and Richmond Architects design also reveal a more sensitive treatment of the ground level, with greater nuance applied to preserving the area's intimate character.
