Amica Balmoral Club is a premium retirement community nestled between Forest Hill and Rosedale in midtown Toronto. The contemporary 15-story residence features 147 luxury units and offers seniors a continuum of care with independent living, assisted living and memory care options.
The building footprint is defined by a south facing courtyard, wrapped by ground floor amenities. The dining room, bistro and craft kitchen benefit from this indoor-outdoor connection with ample natural light and views. Three additional amenity floors offer a library, conservatory, outdoor deck for light planting, gym, juice bar, dental suite, physio room, salon and pool. A double-height, south-facing penthouse lounge allows residents to take full advantage of stunning city views.
The design takes inspiration from the Park Avenue residences of New York City, both in form and expression. Stepped terraces serve as a delicate transition between neighboring homes to the east and the apartment buildings to the west. An elegant grand porch encourages residents to animate the street frontage along Avenue Road while also creating a gentle buffer between the building and this busy thoroughfare.
This innovative redevelopment provides an important ‘aging-in-place’ solution to seniors in urban Toronto.
