  1. 1. THE CARNABY THE BEST OF QUEEN WEST CARNABYLOFTS.COMC2 C3 A FAB NEW INTRO TO QUEEN STREET WEST: THE CARNABY Queen Street West’s Art and Design District continues its evolution with the launch of The Carnaby. Located down the lane from Streetcar’s sold out 2 Gladstone and 8 Gladstone lofts, The Carnaby is set to further transform this dynamic enclave at Queen Street West and Gladstone. Inspired by its iconic namesake – Carnaby Street – London’s west end mecca of boutique shopping, funky galleries, bars, cafés, art and music studios – this new addition to the block will take the form of a visionary mixed-use development incorporating a 20-storey tower with 200 loft residences. At street level an artfully landscaped pedestrian-centric animated laneway, where you can sip a coffee and mingle with neighbours, will add a Soho-esque street-level life to this legendary Queen West area.

  2. 2. THE CARNABY THE BEST OF QUEEN WEST CARNABYLOFTS.COMC4 C5 THE CARNABY LOFTS MODERN AND BOLD, WITH A VIBE AND COMMUNITY OF ITS OWN By including a laneway with a Soho-style buzz, The Carnaby goes beyond the norm to embrace the Queen West culture. THE BLOCK The first thing to love about The Carnaby is the location. On one side of the street sits the gracefully restored 19th century Gladstone Hotel, across from the 2 Gladstone and 8 Gladstone lofts, and then, just a few steps north is the future home of The Carnaby. Tailored to the location, this new and ultimately inspiring residence adds the next cornerstone piece to this re- invigorated block, filling it with a vibe all its own. THE RESIDENCE The Carnaby lofts enter the neighbourhood as a beacon to all that is new with tremendous character. Anchored by an elegant charcoal podium, punched with large double height windows, the 20-storey tower will read as two distinct yet connected volumes. The southern portion is wrapped in textured precast concrete, detailed with strong visual lines which also form the balconies. Rising out of the podium, a natural outdoor terrace is created, elevated above the surrounding streets. The northern tower is a clean and crisp glass volume full of light, which slides past the podium, extending its strong lines down into the transparent and open lobby. THE LANE Continuing Queen West’s avant-garde spirit while being sophisticated and stylish, The Carnaby will bring the Art and Design District’s atmosphere to life with an engaging laneway feature. Well groomed and pedestrian friendly, the new lane will wind its way from Gladstone Avenue through to Peel Avenue. In addition to the retail anchor on Gladstone, a Metro grocery store will open its doors to service the entire community, allowing this animated laneway to guide pedestrians and cyclists alike, to and from this convenient feature. A fabulous European-inspired compliment to the Queen West life, where a neighbourhood stroll and a coffee are a perfect way to start the day. A visionary contribution to the changing dynamics of the area, this pedestrian and bicycle friendly experience stands to become the heart of The Carnaby community. The local source for artisan Ace Bakery Bread and your first stop of the day for coffee. Late night, catch some off-the-wall spinners playing their favorites on vinyl.

  3. 3. THE CARNABY THE BEST OF QUEEN WEST CARNABYLOFTS.COMC6 C7 Complete with illuminating wall sculptures this modern art gallery-inspired entrance makes a statement about The Carnaby’s dedication to high style and good design. The Carnaby’s lobby will be an extension of the northern tower’s glass volume. Vibrant and dynamic, the most exciting elements of the lobby are the illuminating cantilevered wall planes. Sculptural by day and alluring by night, the dramatic glass façade allows their colourful glow to spill out into the surrounding laneway and streetscape. Light and minimal, the clean finishes of the interior create a polished art gallery experience, showcasing the free-standing concierge desk and benches as art installations within that gallery. The modular cube formations of these custom pieces reference the geometrically inspired pop-art prints and fashions of the time when Carnaby Street’s ‘60s influence was at its peak. Sophisticated and rich in style, this double height lobby adds excitement and an artful flare to its private entranceway. Capturing the artisan and fastidious nature of Queen Streeters, Blacksmith Cycle looks homegrown but actually trades in deliciously expensive bicycles. No need to wear Lycra to love the look of these two-wheeled glories. Look for Blacksmith branded bikes coming in 2012. BLACKSMITH CYCLE VIBRANTLY CHARGED, AND ARTISTICALLY STYLED TO ENGAGE THE NEIGHBOURHOOD Rendering is artist’s impression. The Best of Queen West THE CARNABY KEEPS THE QUEEN STREET VIBE FABULOUS – AND GROWING With its innovative, neighbourhood-friendly vision The Carnaby and its laneway defies the monolithic to create a brand new district. Streetcar’s latest project takes its place as a unique development in which all parts – 2 Gladstone, 8 Gladstone and now The Carnaby, have their own signature. Circumventing the monolithic look-alike nature of many developments, here’s an innovative approach which allows the architecture of each building to tell its own story. Connecting all three buildings is a foot-friendly laneway, which runs between them to create, in essence, a new European-inspired block that’s creatively buzzing. As TACT Architecture senior designer Monika Jaroszonek says, “With its location on Peel Street, The Carnaby serves as a visual exclamation point at the end of the laneway.” The vision: cyclists, strollers, dogs, everyone sharing a well-designed space that encourages the existing character of the area, while adding more culture and art, and even studio spaces for the working artist/designer. It’s also a brand new urban block with an emphasis on keeping the area active and alive. Developing this laneway and creating a pocket of new buildings creates a neighbourhood that’s a perfect fit for the community around it. Organic in form, it builds out and expands Queen Street’s linear east-west nature to create a cool new district. Rendering is artist’s impression.
  4. 4. THE CARNABY THE BEST OF QUEEN WEST CARNABYLOFTS.COMC8 C9 The best hangout for QW’s literary crew, the written word is alive and well at Type Books, with an extensive selection of Art. It’s where you get those foreign fashion and art magazines the drugstore won’t stock. TYPE BOOKS Rendering is artist’s impression. Rendering is artist’s impression. The Best of Queen West LUXURIOUS AMENITIES ALLOW YOU TO GATHER, ENTERTAIN AND RELAX Flexible lounge spaces and boutique hotel finishes make it easy to entertain on a grand scale or wind down and relax. Work hard, live fast, lounge at your leisure. To meet your needs for solo relaxation outside the home, and to afford the chance of some neighbourly mingling, The Carnaby hosts two communal spaces where chilling and gathering is encouraged: an indoor party and media room and an outdoor terrace. Both located on the second storey, they share the same emphasis on creating spaces with cutting edge elegance that echo The Carnaby’s design sensibilities. The interior party and media room is a space full of textures, crisp detail and The Carnaby’s fabulous lighting fixtures and high end, boutique furnishings. A party and media room when required, a neutral zone to read a book, meet friends, surf the net and entertain guests. Comes with a bar, of course, and behind the scenes there’s a full kitchen equipped with stainless steel appliances and Caesarstone millwork. Rendering is artist’s impression. The terrace continues the style, combining it with a luxury resort-like chill out vibe. By day, a sun lounge complete with bed-size chaises. By night, the place you plan that al-fresco dinner party, take in the night sky, or enjoy pre-night out gathering of friends. The Carnaby also boasts a beautifully designed, state- of-the-art and fully equipped fitness centre to get your heart pumping.
  5. 5. THE CARNABY THE BEST OF QUEEN WEST CARNABYLOFTS.COMC10 C11 A port of call for everything you could want. From Pendleton blankets to obscure bits of locally made Canadiana, it translates the idea of general rather well, while evoking the dry goods stores of the past. Most loved thing about it: its emphasis on vintage brands that still exist making the same quality goods. For unexpected treasures and domestic paraphernalia visit The Drake’s thrifty-chic 50/50 store. THE DRAKE GENERAL STORE Rendering is artist’s impression. The Best of Queen West STUNNING VIEWS ON THE HIP SIDE OF TOWN. IT’S WHERE YOU BELONG A colourful, connected community offering a fun-filled lifestyle and work/play destinations. It’s the place you’ve spent your Saturday nights and Sunday brunches and now you want to live there. The Queen West strip is now Toronto’s most compellingly irresistible residential neighbourhood for the young and young-at-heart. Living up to its art and design heritage, this is a street where individualism and style will always be revered, and fun days and nights out will always be a given. A street that adds colour to everyday life. Welcoming and surrounded by beautifully treed and walkable residential streets, it’s a community joined together by its mutual love of the ‘hood and the culture it has created. If you’re into music, art, fashion and modern culture, it’s where you get connected to the scene. It’s also a place where connections are made – literally. Moving around becomes a breeze when you live at The Carnaby. The 24-hour streetcar will take you to points east and west. Heading north to the subway – or the art-centric basement bars of Dundas West, a bus up Ossington will take you there. Work downtown in the Financial District, King West’s booming fashion strip or the animation and high tech studios of Liberty Village? They’re all just a short jaunt away from your home at The Carnaby.

  8. 8. THE CARNABY THE BEST OF QUEEN WEST CARNABYLOFTS.COMC16 C17 If you’re giddy in love or just need to inhale a posy head to Demarco-Perpiche and buy yourself (or your honey) a bunch. Green thumbs may also want to pick up a verdigris metal urn for their Carnaby balcony. QUEEN WEST RULES!... AND HERE’S WHY Behind the shop fronts of inviting bars, antique shops with their retro finds, art galleries with their hip new artists, Queen West hosts the best in the city. See. Do. Enjoy it all! Toronto’s home of creative self-expression and a magnet for artists of all kinds, a place that’s the best because it’s so unlike any other Toronto street; it’s colourful, electric, and highly- flavored. A street where art isn’t just what hangs on the wall, but is a way of life. Where street style rules, and restos give you mouthwatering fare served up in every exotic dish you can imagine. ART Art galleries explore local and international talent. Start at MOCCA then head west, taking in the shop front galleries along the street. A small diversion up Ossington will take you to TWP, Angell Gallery and more. Heading further west there’s Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects, and the local artistry found at Gallery 1313. Had enough? We could go further… Because as you know, when it comes to Art, West is Best. CULTURE Queen West is a hive of creativity and with places like the Japanese Paper Shop and its workshops, the Knit Café and The Workroom’s sewing machine heaven you too can express yourself. Visit the Farmer’s Market in Liberty Village, and lounge in the sun at Trinity Bellwoods Park. Learn, share, do, meet Queen Street style! FARE From late night poutine, to the family brunches at the Gladstone Hotel, sushi at The Drake, oysters at Fishbar, DEMARCO-PERPICHE late night drinks at the Beaver, or a mid-week Pho on Ossington, this end of Queen West is a taste- test of the best with the only outcome being pure and utter delight. STYLE With indie boutiques setting up shop further and further west, here’s where you find everything from the trendy, to the cult, to the most original. Real mod boys will set their sights on Oliver Spencer and Ben Sherman, but others will thumbs-up the local boutiques like Relic and the Future of Frances Watson. For those who like retro the handbags and the vintage gems of Queen Street, your style can be found in the racks of the neighbourhood’s many vintage shops. The Best of Queen West
