Situated on the eastern edge of Bayside Toronto, Aqualuna is a new luxury condominium with a wave-like silhouette. Its two towers peak at 16 storeys and 15 storeys, troughing in the middle to maximize views and accommodate an amenity terrace. Developed by Tridel and Hines, Aqualuna is characterized by generous terraces and balconies that face south-east or south-west, providing sweeping vistas across Lake Ontario.
Since launching sales in mid-May, Aqualuna has made quite a splash with prospective homebuyers. Conceived by renowned Danish architecture firm 3XN, the design is markedly different than the condominiums Torontonians have grown accustomed to seeing in the downtown core. The structure is considerate towards neighbouring buildings and streets, and yet is optimized for sun conditions and water views.
The amenities are centrally located, creating a natural gathering spot for Aqualuna residents. The sixth floor is home to a private catering kitchen, lounge and dining area. Cordoned off from the more intimate spaces is an open-concept party room, media lounge, billiards lounge and wet bar.
The outdoor pool terrace is also accessible from this level, and provides pristine views of Lake Ontario. The lower floor amenities include an additional lounge space, yoga studio, fitness centre, change rooms and a sauna. Meantime, two well-appointed lobbies greet residents and their guests with soft furnishings, stunning architectural details and a 24-hour concierge service.
The suites at Aqualuna are airy and spacious with open layouts. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to stream in, and the II BY IV-designed kitchens boast modern cabinetry and integrated appliances. The sprawling outdoor terraces and balconies are a true extension of the living space, allowing residents to unwind, entertain or dine al fresco.
Aqualuna provides unparalleled access to some of Toronto’s most popular attractions. Browse the many stalls of St. Lawrence Market, discover one-of-a-kind boutiques in the Distillery District, or rent stand-up paddle boards from Harbourfront Centre. Green spaces abound at East Bayfront — soak up the sun at Sugar Beach, enjoy a picnic at H20 Park or take the kids to the splash pad at Sherbourne Common. Union Station is only 10 minutes away by transit or 19 minutes on foot, allowing residents to easily connect to the subway or take the UP Express to Toronto Pearson.
The transformation of the nearby Port Lands is already underway. Lakefilling began in January in an effort to naturalize and reroute the mouth of the Don River. The $1.25 billion project will also see the creation of Villiers Island, an 88-acre site with smart city technology, residential development, office space and innovative urban parks.
