Homeowners across the GTA may be breathing a collective sigh of relief when it comes to condo shadows.

Many of the area’s existing towers lack groundbreaking architectural design, so when renowned architect Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang set her sights on a tower in midtown, much buzz ensued.

Slate Asset Management, which owns 10 properties in the area, brought Gang on to design a mixed-use tower at the southwest corner of Yonge and Delisle.

A unique piece of architecture, the 16-sided tower is designed to reduce shadows on the surrounding neighbourhood and focuses on increased outdoor living spaces for its inhabitants with large balconies or terraces for each unit.

The team says this tower is a new model for sustainable urban growth.
