“Lago” means lake in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. This 49-storey tower by Monarch Group will be as close to the lake as a 49 storey tower can be. The views will be spectacular and the wrap-around balconies will enhance them even more. Lago at the Waterfront will be located south of the Waterview Community. The 3 story podium will feature terraces with spectacular lake views. Designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects, Lago is the next Monarch development that will be in very high demand.

The main amenity spaces of Lago Condominiums are located to the west in an individual commercial building that fronts Lake Shore Boulevard. This building is 4 storeys in height and houses commercial uses at grade. A fitness area with full changerooms, swimming pool, and running track with yoga space are located above. The amenities can be accessed from the condominium either at grade, or via an enclosed walkway link in the p1 underground level, allowing residents to avoid venturing outdoors in the winter months should they choose. This amenity building will be shared between Lago and a future building to the east.
Architectural details verbatim, from Monarch's press release:The cladding materials used for this phase of Waterview are similar to the previous phases in order to maintain a visual and aesthetic link within the community. The Lago tower is composed of a sleek simple square tower form which rises without any steps or breaks. The signature feature of the building is the composition of the balcony slabs and glass handrails on the Tower facade. The balconies borrow their geometry from the tower mass and are offset in groups as to generate a dynamic and intriguing building facade. The balconies contrast the rectilinear shape of the Tower and this layer of detail is amplified through the cast of shadow and light. The balconies also introduce a sense of horizontal movement around the Tower, which further accentuate its square shape and its verticality. Finally, the continuous wrap around balconies maximize on panoramic views of Lake Ontario while introducing a distinct and signature geometric form to the Etobicoke waterfront skyline. It is this dialogue between the architecture and the site that adds a dynamic layer to the Lago development.
