The HOK-designed public and amenity spaces inside this two-tower office and residential building serve as a welcome mat and passageway to the Daniels Waterfront – City of the Arts, a live-work-play-create development rising in Toronto’s East Bayfront district.
Inspired by the creatives who call Daniels Waterfront home, the building’s lobby evokes the feeling of a curated gallery with pieces of local artistry. Rippled wood paneling with blue accents runs the length of the lobby’s central stair, with the wall’s tone and texture mirroring the fluidity of nearby Lake Ontario. Tailored lobby furniture provides touchpoints for residents and business tenants to share an espresso or enjoy a serendipitous encounter.
An eclectic, multiuse lounge on the ninth floor provides residents with a chic space for entertaining and relaxing. Private and bookable boardrooms offer business tenants stylish quarters for meetings or client events. An elevated, richly landscaped terrace adds yet another social space—this one with breathtaking views of the lake.
