West Village, a massive new condo community by
, has launched its first and is about to launch its second of four phases in what will be a four-tower, single-podium development in Etobicoke.
The first tower will be 27 storeys with 267 suites. Though Tridel hopes all four towers will be roughly the same height, the city has currently zoned the fourth one at 15 storeys.
"We're really trying to push the community feel of the building," says Samson Fung, Tridel's spokesman. "It's four buildings in an area that doesn't really have that."
The buildings, designed by Sheppard Avenue West firm Rafael & Bigauskas Architects
, are to be built on The West Mall just north of Bloor Street West to LEED standards. Set between the Etobicoke Community Centre and Cloverdale Mall, West Village will be just west of Kipling station and Tridel's other development in the area, Parc Nuvo.
Construction is set to begin next year, with a fall or winter, 2013 occupancy.
