City of Toronto - 2009 Toronto Urban Design Awards Submission:
Composed of modern glass with pre-cast concrete elements, EQ1 and EQ2 at the successful Equinox condominium community form a sleek landmark that is well integrated in the Scarborough City Centre. Fronting onto Albert Campbell Square, these two towers join the first two phases, Equinox I and II, to complement this vibrant location, which encompasses a critical traffic node for the City of Toronto. Residents live steps from the Town Centre and SRT, which promote the use of public transportation through immediate access to the Kennedy subway station.
The buildings feature a wraparound podium with grade-related retail that face the park and frame the pedestrian realm of the square. An expanded walkway under the arcade enhances the use of this area, creates a sense of place and security, and provides an “eyes on the square” atmosphere that encourage pedestrian and activity use. The varying height of the towers complement the city’s skyline, and add an exciting dimension to the area’s residential appeal.
