Quadrangle Architects' panoramic view from the Cityplace development in Toronto 

Panorama is the latest in a series of developments by Concord Adex adjacent to the former railway lands collectively called Cityplace. Design architect Quadrangle utilized the constraints imposed by the Gardiner Expressway, Lakeshore Boulevard and a proposed big box food store to create a fluid living environment. Each constraint has been turned to advantage to create an original and engaging design element. The space under the Gardiner has been reinterpreted as large outdoor vestibule for the development, the line of Lakeshore has been reflected in a sinuous curve in the podium and the body of the tower billows out as a sail as it emerges above the Expressway and overlooks the harbour. Panorama is an example of the eye catching form of buildings being provided in the core of the city and construction will start this summer with completion scheduled for March 2009.
