Aqualuna presented by Tridel and Hines at 263 Queens Quay East, is the fourth and last market condominium development proposed for Toronto's nascent Bayside neighbourhood, replacing a former port industrial area south of Queens Quay and between Sherbourne Common and the Parliament Street Slip.
The building with peaks of 16 and 19 storeys is designed by Denmark's 3XN architects. 3XN proposes various public functions (such as a rowing club) at the podium to activate the waterfront along with different restaurants and cafes. The activation of the waterside edge has been a central part of the design process, Aqualuna should be beneficial for the residents and contribute to the betterment of the City of Toronto itself.
Anchoring the Eastern edge of the Bayside Development on Toronto’s Revitalized Waterfront, ’Aqualuna' is born out of its spectacular lakeside location. The podium of the building will have a continuous double height façade facing towards the promenade, with a through-block connection as an extension of Edgewater Drive. Its playful façade is a reflection of the waves across Lake Ontario. The unique aspects of the site constraints have been the primary driver behind the building design, massing, and terraces strategy. The building is positioned to be a good neighbor to the surrounding, respecting its views and sightlines.
‘Aqualuna’ is located on the edge of Google’s parent company Alphabet’s newly announced smart community project named Quayside, driven by its subsidiary Sidewalk Labs. The community will span the entire 800-acre waterfront area once completed. Sidewalk Labs and Waterfront Toronto have imagined a neighborhood that would incorporate high-tech systems to help solve current city issues, like a lack of affordable housing, traffic congestion and safety, and environmental impact.
Toronto’s waterfront is undergoing tremendous change, and the Bayside development is a central role in its revitalization.
