Red face TORONTO | Beyond the Sea (& Star Tower) | 44 FL | 37 FL | 26 FL

Located in south Etobicoke, an inner suburb bordering Lake Ontario in the southwestern-most part of metro Toronto

The towers' designs are very generic but Empire Communities are known across the GTA for excellent unit finishes, layouts and residential amenities. Lots of nice interior pics!
_ ___________ _ ___________ _ ___________ _ ___________ _






The interiors look very well thought out.




Lobby



Atrium



Pool area



Bar/Restaurant




Main deck

So is it only the 44 floor phase to go up? Overall it looks pretty cool, and adds some density to that part of the city and lakeshore...

The last tower, the one that is about 4 floors up right now will be 152 meters or just over 500 feet.

That site is coming along nicely! It's really cool to see more stuff going skywards in Etobicoke and by the lakeshore, outside of downtown...
