241 Richmond West: a proposed 41-storey mixed-use condominium building designed by architects—Alliance for Tridel on the southeast corner of Richmond Street West and John Street in the Entertainment District neighbourhood.
The proposed tower would rise from the north to the south, with a smaller 36-storey story at the northern part of the site alongside a southern 41-storey building portion. Although there are two vertical components, the building would function as a single tower, the planning rationale explains.
Of the 470 units in the tower — tenured as condos, according to the application’s project data sheet — the breakdown would include 43 studio, 309 one-bedroom, 69 two-bedroom and 49 three-bedroom suites.
The two-tiered podium supporting the tower consists of two separate portions, characterized as Podium A at the north side of the lot and Podium B at the south side. Podium A would incorporate the existing two-storey heritage building into the contemporary tower, while Podium B would feature a modern architectural aesthetic. Retail uses would also be included in the podium, which ranges from two to seven storeys in height. The existing building at 133 John Street would also be removed.
“Through its substantial modification with various uses over the last few decades, the heritage value of the existing building at 133 John Street has diminished, and so, by removing the existing building at 133 John Street, Podium B can be complementary to the existing heritage building at the north end of the site, recognizing and giving prominence to its heritage value,” explains the planning rationale.
The building’s main lobby and entrance would be accessible from John Street, in addition to a semi-enclosed pedestrian walkway that provides access across the site and to a future public park slated immediately east of the tower.
Indoor and outdoor amenity space would be included in the tower, the majority of which would be incorporated on the third floor in the form of an outdoor amenity rooftop terrace and an adjacent indoor facility. Amenities would also be provided on the tower’s second and 37th levels.
