The collection of suites in the new release features 9’ ceilings and views to the adjacent historic Gibson House Museum and Park. Gibson Square will have convenient direct underground access to the North York Centre Subway Station and Empress Walk Shopping Centre, and it’s just a short walk to the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts, Mel Lastman Square, and the Douglas Snow Aquatic Centre. A multitude of shopping and dining opportunities are right in the neighbourhood.
Gibson Square, designed by Rafael Bigauskas Architects, will feature prominently on the North York City Centre skyline, with two 42-storey towers topped by architectural white roof caps that will be recognizable from miles away. The buildings will share a five-storey, mixed-use podium containing residential suites, retail shops and an extensive collection of amenities.
Among these are 24-hour concierge service provided from the two-storey lobby with its modern classic design. Making a grand statement, the lobby features a spectacular hand-blown glass chandelier and curving black granite staircase leading to the Gibson Club on the second-level. (Is that a Chihuly?)
Drove down the Yonge NYCC strip recently, and the amount of cranes and construction activity is impressive. For some reason these towers remind of something you'd find in Seoul (probably because of the odd roof element). Fitting because of the Korean retail presence.
I'll have to check it out the next time I am on a Kimchi run to the Galleria (Supermarket).
