Located in downtown Toronto, this 445-unit condominium community will anchor a new comprehensively planned community on the former Wellesley Hospital site. Exploring a hi-tech architectural design expression, Verve has made a powerful visual statement, in both the local neighbourhood and on the Toronto Skyline. Its 39-storey point tower of glass and concrete elements, and its seven-storey loft building are linked by a central lobby. The tower facade has been shaped to take advantage of the unique elements of the surrounding landscape, thus it follows the curving path of Wellesley Street. This building will also be “healthy” and “energy efficient”, as one of the first truly “green” condominium apartments in the city.
