Designed by architects Alliance, the building would essentially be arranged in three tiers with a 7-storey podium roughly equal in height to the Novotel to the west of it fronting on The Esplanade, an 11-storey podium roughly equal in height to the garage and residential building to the south of it fronting on Church Street, and a 34-storey tower rising behind both. A second floor outdoor amenity area including a pool and terrace deck is proposed for the southwest corner of the site beside the Novotel.
The skin for the project’s podium sections is proposed to be brick, while punched windows are arranged in an alternating pattern on every second floor. Canopies over the sidewalks are proposed at ground level with double-height retail space front The Esplanade. The retail space would include a mezzanine.
The St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood is a bustling area steeped in history and anchored by two world famous markets that date back to the early 1800’s. The South Market is food heaven with over 120 vendors and the North Market is known for its weekly farmers’ market and antiques. The North market is currently undergoing a major redevelopment that will transform the neighbourhood for the better.
