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.
