When you play opposites, certain aspects of an experience become more prominent and interesting thanks to the contrasting elements. When this principle of opposition is engaged in the design of housing, it can serve to create smart and intimate interior environments. If you position one such interior within the context of a vibrant urban life, brilliantly located in the heart of one of our city's most dynamic and adored neighbourhoods, you get this property:
Welcome to 783 Bathurst Street, Suite 427.
Located in the Annex, a neighbourhood long renowned in our city for its diversity and eclecticism, B Streets Condominiums is an intimate, contemporary structure that sits between the high-energy of Bathurst Street to the West and quiet residential streets to the East. Nine storeys rise confidently on Bathurst, before rolling out gradually to the East, in a series of stepped levels that create outdoor living spaces that are at once awesome and inviting.
This sense of contrast is carried out thematically inside and out, in the exterior architecture and in the interior design choices, where one finds a terrific interplay between light and dark and the textured and smooth. The rough texture of gunmetal brick meets the smooth façade of light precast concrete, punctuated by luminous architectural glazing. This nine-storey mid-rise boutique building features just under 200 units that range in size from 500 square feet to just over 1200 square feet. The creative team that brought this contemporary jewel to fruition includes Hariri Pontarini Architects and Cecconi Simone, who were responsible for executing the interior design. Amenities include a party room, dining room, outdoor patio with bar, exercise room and multi-purpose hobby room, which provides ample space for a myriad of possible creative activities and endeavours.
Suite 427 spreads out over 800 square feet of well-thought-out living space, which includes two graciously-sized bedrooms and two clean-lined, contemporary bathrooms. One is greeted with an appreciation for the contemporary immediately upon entry, with clean lines and beautifully detailed finishes clearly apparent. There is an interesting visual relationship between the smooth ceilings and the wide plank floors as the space opens towards large, eye-catching windows, and a west-facing balcony.
The chef’s kitchen is both dreamy and pragmatic, with a generously sized island featuring additional storage which is ideal for gathering around when entertaining friends and family. Rich and very modern backsplash tiling fired in a deep Japanese raku-style glazing sets apart the chic wood finish cabinetry, continuing the play between light and dark. The AEG European range and oven and stylish cabinetry-finished built-in Blomberg refrigerator and dishwasher elevate the visual. The living space is bright, with large windows and a flowing open space plan that integrates the living and the dining areas. We adore the primary bedroom sanctuary which invites an opportunity for private reflection and repose and extends seamlessly into the refreshing spa-like ensuite bath complete with brilliant chrome fittings and luxe rain showerhead with hand sprayer. The suite features a split bedroom plan, with the second bedroom offering its own privacy with a generous double closet and steps-away access to the second bathroom complete with a full tub and shower.
Of special note is the 30 square foot balcony that extends the living space with the opportunity for outdoor entertaining and relaxation possibilities, as well as the generous foyer that just invites arranging a bijou study or office space - how awesome is that?!
For the fortunate occupant, the Annex is brimming with opportunity and the effervescence of urban living, while neighbouring so many other awesome 'hoods! You can't beat the transportation offerings; Bathurst Subway station is at your doorstep, which can connect you to all points north, south, east, and west, as I the 300 Bloor-Danforth bus. For those who prefer to cycle the city, the Harbord street bike lanes are just a block to the south, running west toward Ossington or east towards the University of Toronto and Queen’s Park. Explore colourful Koreatown to the west, or take a short stroll south to experience the culinary coolness of Little Italy, or on to Kensington Market which is regarded as Toronto’s most dynamic multicultural fresh food market. Grab a bit at one of the great eateries in Harbord Village to the southeast, or follow Ossington to Dundas where 'The Strip' offers some of the hippest bars and cafes in the city!
Some of Urbaneer’s faves are a pleasant stroll away. On Bloor Street West, we love having brunch (or an excellent martini!) at Insomnia Café, or grabbing a solid cup of coffee at cool and cozy Mallo. If you're a game enthusiast, you'll love being close to game café Snakes and Lattes, and film buffs will enjoy the proximity to the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema! Yearn for green space? Expansive Christie Pits Park to the west has something for everyone: loads of wide-open green space, an artificial ice rink, tobogganing hills, baseball diamonds, a children’s playground, a splash pad, a wading pool, and a community garden. And if an e-reader just doesn't do it for you, the Palmerston Branch of the Toronto Public Library is less than a two-minute walk away.
