Totem is unlike anything Toronto has ever seen. Dynamic, irreverent and bold, it reaches for the sky in a series of stacked boxes – contemporary cubist architecture executed to perfection. This isn’t just another generic glass tower, it’s a rich, thoughtful addition to the architectural texture of the city.
A series of illuminated boxes, carefully stacked. Spaces shifted gently left and right, geometry that draws the eye
skyward. A building that’s poised to be iconic, the shape of things to come.
It’s city living that’s a shift from what’s come before. A place designed to meet the needs of urbanites looking for their own little slice of downtown. It’s not about fitting your life to a cookie cutter shape, Totem is about living your life in the perfect location that’s designed to fit
you to a T.
Jutting boldly over the street, this dark, dramatic shape draws the eye
and engages the senses. Bold stone cladding that provides a rich textural counterpoint to the sleek glass and steel of the rest of the building.
architecture is a
nod to Manhattan’s award-winning New Museum, a showcase for contemporary
art, and an icon of urban modernism. Totem combines elegance and urbanism, movement and modern lines, creating a dynamic structure that brings a fresh presence to
a quaint downtown street, lined with Victorian homes, Dundonald.
Bold blue “fins” add interest and dimension to the south elevation of the building, reflecting light in unique ways, creating angled sightlines from the inside and exciting visuals from the street.
This quiet mall and high-rise residence was home to Eaton’s elegant art deco flagship store. The original showpiece has been broken up to house smaller shops and services, but the beautiful deco details remain. From the lovely brass revolving doors to the marble finishes throughout, it’s a gracious space steeped in history. And upstairs you’ll find one of Toronto’s most celebrated event spaces, the Carlu. Recently restored to its original Art Moderne splendour, the venue features a hand-painted mural by Natacha Carlu and a stunning Lalique fountain.
Filled with historic buildings and gracious green spaces, the lovely University of Toronto campus is a walk or a quick subway ride away. Bordering the campus is the Annex neighbourhood, a community that’s host to a dynamic mix of students and affluent families. Elegant mansions are juxtaposed with cheap and cheerful sushi places and student watering holes, giving the area a fun, energetic vibe you won’t find anywhere else in the city.
Head west along Wellesley, and a quick ten-minute walk will take you to the Ontario Legislature, a sprawling historic structure set in serene parkland. Opened in 1860 in honour of Queen Victoria, Queen’s Park is surrounded by ministry buildings and the gracious structures of University of Toronto, and is just steps away from the Royal Ontario Museum and the Gardiner Museum at Bloor and Avenue Road. The park is a perfect workday respite for students, government workers and university employees – one a nice day, you’ll find it busy with people enjoying their lunch break or taking a quick walk between meetings.
Chic and sophisticated, Bloor/Yorkville is known for its well-heeled residents, but it has shopping and dining options to suit every budget. If money is no object, it’s a great place to get a dose of haute couture at Chanel or Hermès, shop for high-end eats at Pusateri’s or get your hair done at one of Toronto’s top salons. If you’re on a bit of a budget, there’s always Winners and Pottery Barn to make it look like you’ve spent lots, without breaking the bank.
At the northernmost part of University Avenue where it meets College is an area Torontonians like to call “Hospital Row” for its high concentration of medical facilities. The enclave includes Toronto General Hospital, Mount Sinai, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, the Toronto Rehabilitation Centre and Sick Kids. It’s also home to Canada’s largest research hub and one of the ten largest biomedical clusters in the world. For doctors, health care workers, researchers, technicians and biomedical entrepreneurs, Totem offers incredible proximity to the best facilities Canada has to offer.
A thriving neighbourhood of bars, restaurants, cafes and more are just around the corner in Toronto’s best-known gay neighbourhood. The Village is the epicenter of Pride Week, one of the largest pride fests in the world (and definitely one of Toronto’s favourite parties). This ten-day celebration draws massive crowds from all over the world to concerts, galas and cultural events, culminating in the famous Pride Parade.
Head south along Yonge or Church, and you’ll find another set of hallowed educational halls; the ever-expanding Ryerson campus is tucked in around the Eaton Centre. Stop by on a sunny summer day – Gould Street between Yonge and Church is permanently closed to traffic, and is the perfect place to sit down at a patio table and enjoy lunch of a coffee al fresco.
There’s always something happening at Yonge Dundas Square, located right across the street from the Eaton Centre. Public concerts, events, movies and more happen every day during the summer and are mostly free. It’s a fun, dynamic spot that’s always busy. And if you get too hot, cool off in the “urban beach” (a favourite with overheated joggers), a dynamic art installation made up of fountains that run 24 hours a day from mid-April to early October.
Totem is close to everything. You’re steps from Wellesley station (there’s actually a private entrance into the subway for Totem residents), and a short walk to whatever you need – from the LGBT-friendly restaurants and businesses in the Village to the sleek shops on Yorkville’s mink mile, from Ryerson and U of T campuses to the government offices and hospitals at Queen’s Park. You’ve got the city at your feet.
