Working with Medallion Capital Group, Finegold Alexander is currently recently designed new condominium units within a historic, neo-Gothic church building in High Park, one of Toronto’s most sought-after neighborhoods with Medallion Capital Group. In total, there will be 15 Church Loft Residences offering luxurious amenities in a one-of-a-kind setting. The units are designed to retain as much of the existing building fabric as possible by taking full advantage of the large windows—which feature original stained glass—and the soaring interior spaces. The tops of the church towers will be converted to private, outdoor balcony spaces. At the street level, the fully restored church looks relatively unchanged, although it will house some of Toronto’s finest residences.
The historic church, o is in one of Toronto’s sought-after and established neighborhoods. Originally built designed in 1908 by the renowned architectural firm Burke, Horwood & White, it became, and still is, an area that is landmarked for its unique neo-gothic design. Urban Toronto shares some of the important milestones throughout the construction process as the project inches makes its way towards opening.
“With Finegold Alexander Architects and ERA Architects presiding over the heritage component, and Turner Fleischer Architects responsible for the new-build structure, the design team has worked collaboratively to deliver a product that respects heritage elements while adding new volume that is complementary and not overwhelming, all while delivering new housing.”
