Aquabella will be the third condominium project to be developed at Bayside and will join Aqualina and Aquavista, which are under construction and scheduled for initial occupancy in August 2017 and June 2018 respectively, in the Bayside Toronto mixed-use waterfront community. Construction on the 174-condominium Aquabella is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2017 with a projected occupancy date in the second quarter of 2020.
The architecture of the 323,257-square-foot Aquabella is defined by its unique L-shape design which ensures views out across the water for residents and provides ample, natural light to the public areas at ground level. Featuring a dynamic and distinctive architectural form, the building steps down from its highest point at the north-west where it meets the city edge, to an amenity before rising back up towards its eastern façade. Aquabella’s roof, or fifth façade, is a series of stepped garden terraces that activate the façade with a variety of plant species.
The Bayside Toronto community will be Toronto’s first LEED-ND Gold neighborhood and Aquabella, like Aqualina and Aquavista, will pursue LEED Platinum certification. Aquabella will also include approximately 8,661 square feet of retail space and a City of Toronto child-care facility for 72 children.
