Livmore High Park

The Livmore High Park is a purpose-built luxury rental residential redevelopment which adds two 25-storey towers with 528 rental units, 16 townhomes, and 2 amenity pavilions to the site’s existing 1960s-era concrete apartment buildings. The development is replacing existing apartments and will include studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Located north of Bloor Street in the High Park area and immediately adjacent to a TTC subway station, this infill project responds to the demand for affordable homes for individuals and families seeking rental housing.

The design strategy integrates the desired level of density with an attractive pedestrian-friendly street condition. The towers are clad in light precast concrete with a warm tone and contrasted by strategic areas of charcoal colour brick. The façade is comprised of a base pattern of which a set of pattern variations establish a rhythm of volumetric and material distinctions. These recessed and extruded patterns provide visual interest at the human scale.
