The April groundbreaking ceremony at the site of Great Gulf Homes' Monde Condominiums marked the official start for the long-awaited waterfront residential development. The 44-storey, 492-foot tall condominium tower, designed by Israeli-Canadian architect Moshe Safdie in partnership with Quadrangle Architects, marks the sixth major commission in Canada for Safdie since his envelope-pushing brutalist landmark Habitat '67 was constructed in Montreal almost a half century ago.
The Postmodern exterior of Monde will be complemented by modern interiors by innovative Toronto-based design firm Cecconi Simone, the same company responsible for the creative interiors currently soon to take shape at another major Great Gulf project, One Bloor East at the corner of Yonge and Bloor. Renderings of the interior of Monde's suites depict a clean, airiness that speaks to the simply stunning lake views beyond the suites' windows.
