HIGH PARK TER­RACES

Outdoor Lifestyle Magazine - - Award Winners -

This stun­ning condo was de­signed to blend in with the lush veg­e­ta­tion of its neigh­bour, Toronto’s High Park. The ter­races tier down the build­ing, and large built-in planters soften the green of its fa­cade. This de­sign is both uniquely chal­leng­ing and re­ward­ing from a main­te­nance per­spec­tive. Ac­cess to the terrace planters are through the pri­vate units lo­cated at the edge of the build­ing. A plush va­ri­ety of flow­er­ing peren­ni­als and shrubs, along with cas­cad­ing ev­er­greens give the res­i­dents their own oa­sis to en­joy year-round. Other ar­eas of the build­ing have their own eclec­tic main­te­nance style. From a for­mal garden of clipped yews on the north side, and nat­u­ral ravine like gar­dens on the south, the var­i­ous land­scape as­pects of this condo are a plea­sure to de­velop and main­tain.
