Totem Brochure

  1. 1. BROKER PACKAGE
  2. 2. shift your perspective 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. That’s Totem. 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.
  3. 3. MID-CENTURY MODERN, MEET THE NEW MILLENNIUM. The building design incorporates the existing structure at 17 Dundonald. Built in 1956, the Commercial Travellers’ Association of Canada Building is a culturally significant example of small-scale Modern architecture, and is included on the city’s inventory of heritage properties. Designed by Toronto architectural firm Weir Cripps and Associates, the low, sleek building features a distinctive grid of solids and voids with turquoise-hued glazed brick, travertine, aluminum and concrete cladding, highly representative of the Modern style popular in post-war Toronto. This original structure makes up the base of Totem, adding context, history and texture to the building’s thoughtful design. your own private subway entrance It’s the ultimate urban location. Right beside a subway station – with a private entrance that means you don’t even have to go outside to get around town. Step right from the Totem lobby into Wellesley station, through an exclusive entrance with secure fob access. Who needs a car when taking the TTC is so easy? Imagine it. A quick underground trip to shop the Eaton Centre, no coat required. Getting to work in a flash, without an exhausting commute. Accessing great cultural attractions – museums, theatre, music and more – without ever having to worry about where to park your car. When you live here, you can go anywhere.
  4. 4. Inspired Architecture 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.
  5. 5. ICONIC Totem’s 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. THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN TORONTO ! Using a secured fob entry, the residents have direct access to the Wellesley Subway station from the lobby at Totem.
  6. 6. THE CUBE 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.
  7. 7. a new angle 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.

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. 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. P TTC Charles St W Museum Lester B.
