Today Toronto’s historic waterfront District generates intense interest on the part of many talented city planners, architects and designers. This vibrant urban center will soon celebrate another iconic modern condominium development: Daniels Waterfront Condos, a multi-story “City of the Arts.” The new project envisions 516 luxurious condominium units in close proximity with a five story educational institution housed on the lower levels of the building. It boasts many innovative amenities, including outdoor features that include a landscaped terrace near a barbecue area and cocktail pool on the Fourteenth Floor, and full-sized tennis courts and community gardening plots on the Ninth Floor.
The seminal development represents the culmination of a creative collaboration between the Daniels Corporation, Giannone Petricone Associates, Inc., and Cecconi Simone, Inc.; their latest project, Daniels Waterfront Condominiums, at 132 Queens Quay East promises to transform the Toronto skyline.
The Daniels Corporation
Daniels Waterfront Toronto owes much to the creative vision of John H. Daniels, the founder of the Daniels Corporation. His firm has constructed more than 25,000 residential units and garnered accolades that include Ontario High Rise Builder of the Year (presented by Tarion Warranty Corporation) and EnerQuality’s Green Home Builder of the Year. One of Canada’s leading builders, Mr. Daniels formerly served as the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Cadillac Fairview Development Corporation. He possesses great insight into Toronto real estate.
Daniels Corporation has been building luxurious apartments, condominiums, and homes for over two decades. You may have heard the name ‘The Daniels Corporation’ before – they are an award-winning developer, and have planned and developed the TIFF Bell Lightbox (The Toronto International Film Festival Group), and the Festival Tower, an exquisite residential tower above the Bell Lightbox.
The Daniels Corporation has developed over 24,000 exquisite homes and apartments all through the Greater Toronto Area. They are also collaborating with the Toronto Community Housing to revitalize Regent Park – a 69 acre community in East Downtown Toronto.
“The Daniels Corporation brings integrity, creativity and vision to every community we build. You see our commitment to excellence in every exquisite detail.”
Currently in its pre-construction stage is a multi-use condo development. The Daniels Waterfront Condos will be on the Toronto waterfront, by Queens Quay and Jarvis Street. This condo will be a 48 story tower, with office space, a creative industries hub, and post-secondary space.
Giannone Petricone Associates, Inc.
An outstanding Toronto-based design firm, Giannone Petricone Associates Inc., will design the tower. Giannone Petricone Associates Inc. was founded by Ralph Giannoe and Pina Petricone.
The Daniels Waterfront floor plans owe much to the contributions of Architects Ralph Giannone and Pina Petricone. Their large architectural firm has worked extensively drafting some of the best condos in Toronto. Ralph Giannone, who graduated from the University of Toronto, worked on some significant structures, including the Hotel Torre Fiore in Basilicata, Italy and the beautiful Toronto Parkdale Library. His colleague, Pina Petricone, earned a Masters in Architecture in 1995 from Princeton University and recently authored Concrete Ideas: Materials to Shape a City (2012).
“The firm’s award-winning portfolio ranges from furniture design to master planning, and everything in between, with expertise in hospitality and retail design, commercial and institutional projects, feasibility studies and urban development.”
Cecconi Simone, Inc.
Cecconi Simone Inc., is based in Toronto and was founded in 1982. This firm has designed retail and residential projects, as well as hotel-hospitality and corporate interior projects. They have designed about 75 condo communities in Toronto. The project at the Lighthouse Tower location in Toronto joins an impressive list of other condominium projects within the city crafted by the firm, which has also worked on projects in other parts North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Construction on Queen’s Quay represents another stunning addition to the Cecconi Simone, Inc. interior design portfolio. They will be doing the interior design for The Daniels Waterfront Condos.
The Daniels Corporation, working alongside Giannone Petricone Associates Inc. and Cecconi Simone Inc. will undoubtdely design and build a magnificent waterfront condo that overlooks Lake Ontario. Daniels Waterfront Condos will be located on an iconic landmark that has been once known as the Guvernment Complex near Sugar Beach.
A Remarkable Condominium Development
The new Daniels Waterfront Condos will transform Toronto’s historic waterfront district this autumn. With an array of affordable unit sizes, ranging from efficiency bachelor pads of 347 square feet to larger penthouse suites on the two upper levels of the building, these latest Toronto real estate listings already generate enthusiasm on the part of many people. Few structures will afford the panoramic views of this incredible waterfront condominium community.
