A Room with a Forever View

exhibit view toronto

The hosts of a popular network talk shows always close off by reminding the audience to take a moment and enjoy the view. Residents of Exhibit are fortunate to be able to take in unobstructed views that are forever protected.

Exhibit offers panoramic views of Toronto’s city skyline. That view includes Canada’s largest museum, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) with its Deconstructivist crystalline form structure known as the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, juxtaposed against historic, Italianate Neo-Romanesque features of rounded and segmented arched windows and decorative moldings and cornices.

The prestigious architecture and beautiful green spaces that make up the University of Toronto campus are also part of the incomparable view from Exhibit. The picturesque walkways and ivy covered buildings have been part of the landscape for over a hundred years and will undoubtedly remain for hundreds more.

Situated in surroundings like these, it can definitely be said that Exhibit offers a room with a forever view.

A perfect day in the neighbourhood: Yorkville Edition

Screen Shot 2016-06-10 at 3.09.47 PMIt’s an area of Toronto that has a rich history. In the 1960s it was notably a big part of the Toronto bohemian cultural scene. Since then it’s established itself as one of the most luxurious areas of the city and a hot spot for celebrities when they’re visiting the city. The area features world class shopping and dining, but also feels like a small village within a city. We’re so excited to have two projects coming to the area – Exhibit and 1 Yorkville. With so much around them, residents won’t need to go far to spend a perfect day right within their own neighbourhood. Continue reading
