Galleria On The Park Condos – Design

Galleria Condos is so vast and so ambitious that it requires the efforts of 3 architectural firms.

Hariri Pontarini, CORE Architects and Perkins + Will are teaming up to design the master-planned community.

Their work spans 19-acres, 7 blocks and consists of a dozen structures ranging from 3 to 42-storeys.

The buildings themselves are very modern, using plenty of glass, dark steel and angular geometry.

Galleria is heavy on sharp lines and boxy balconies, as well as diamond, square and rectangular shapes.

While Galleria is both stylish and contemporary, it’s still rooted in the past.

For example, it’s being built on the site of the historic Galleria Shopping Centre (hence its name Galleria Condos).

The old shopping centre (around since the 1970’s) is being rebuilt for a modern age.

But that’s not all.

The design also incorporates many of the mall’s old stores, extends Wallace Emerson Park, and almost doubles the size of the existing community centre.

Rather than tear down the past, Galleria Condos expands and builds upon it.

Another crucial element of Galleria On the Park is the “park” part.

Besides Wallace Emerson Park, which is swelling to 8-acres, Galleria is also minutes from Dovercourt Park, Christie Pits and Pelham Park.

In fact, 25% of the development is devoted to green spaces!

Finally, there’s a strong emphasis on community and access, with pedestrian-friendly streets, bike lanes, open-spaces and several transit options.
