It’s been used in tube stations in London and eco-friendly buildings at Berkeley University; and now Fibre C, a fibre reinforced cement panel system, will be used on parts of the exterior of The Nest.

Located on St. Clair West in Hillcrest Village, the new mid-rise residence by The Rockport Group will be partially clad with the exceptionally durable material: innovative concrete panels, which are reinforced with glass fibres. Fibre C shares the hardness of concrete, but it’s thin and covers buildings like a protective wrap.

Light-weight and fireproof, the panels can be formed in countless shapes, regardless of whether a wall or roof slants. Plus its modern appearance aligns perfectly with the contemporary design of The Nest, a project designed by forward-thinking architecture firm RAW Design, with interiors by II By IV.

Very few Toronto condos have used the extra-thin concrete slabs and The Nest is proving its commitment to the environment by choosing thematerial. A certifiably green product, Fibre C is largely made up of basic construction materials and is inert and durable.

That commitment to eco-friendly living carries over to other state-of-the-art features such as geothermal heating and cooling system as well as the project’s location. For residents who prefer to leave the car at home, the project’s home at St. Clair Avenue West and Hendrick Avenue, is considered a “Walker’s Paradise” according to walkscore.com.

The 92 walk score means that neighbourhood amenities such as restaurants, grocery stores and parks are all within strolling distance. And although it’s just outside the core, the neighbourhood is well-served by transit with the St. Clair streetcar, Bathurst bus and St. Clair West subway all easily accessible.

For those who want to experience city life but still have easy access to the outdoors, the expansive rooftop terrace with skyline views is sure to strike the ideal balance.

By using the innovative materials and stand-out design elements, it’s clear that the Rockport Group is committed to making sure all the details of The Nest are just right. After all, high standards never go out of style.

Suites start from the mid $200,000s.
