With its confident podium on Richmond Street complete, Studio on Richmond’s tower is growing by the floor. Aspen Ridge Homes is now working to complete the first of two towers in the development. Featuring expressive glass façades while fitting into the historic Richmond Street streetscape, Studio and Studio2 will prove distinctive and welcoming buildings to call home.
The architecture of the 31 and 41-storey towers will be distinguished by their stacked rhombus forms with diagonal mullions and asymmetrical balconies. While the glass towers are contemporary, the 9-storey podium was designed to complement the area’s historic warehouses and fit into the streetscape.
The buildings will meet the street with two-storey glazed sections, accented by colourful stripes. This creative motif is repeated along the glazed penthouses atop the towers. Beyond the concierge, the two-tower project includes many features such as therapeutic hot tubs, indoor and outdoor yoga facilities, indoor steam rooms, outdoor terraces for barbequing, a games and media lounge, and party rooms. Most uniquely, Studio will feature an 8,000 square foot space intended for OCAD University to use as a public art gallery and restaurant.
Studio on Richmond’s tower suites will have floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize views, open-concept layouts and contemporary kitchens with fine Miele appliances. Buyers will have a choice of granite or CaesarStone countertops. Units in the project range from 419 to 1,357 square feet.
Uniquely located, the buildings straddle the Financial and Entertainment districts. Studio on Richmond is within quick walking distance of Osgoode and St. Andrew subway stations, with easy access to the Theatre District on King Street and Queen West’s shopping district between University and Spadina avenues.
Residents will also have easy access to Nathan Phillips Square, the Eaton Centre and Grange Park on foot. The location is immensely practical, with many of the city’s best shopping, entertainment and employment options within comfortable walking distance.
With a great location, it doesn’t take much to build a winner; however, Aspen Ridge Homes is investing in the architecture and features for an outstanding development that’s more than just a unique location. Beyond an investment in a unique downtown location, Studio on Richmond will be a fine place to live.
