Located at Richmond and Sherbourne, The Modern is a head-turning condominium development by Empire Communities
(Beyond the Sea, Fly) in conjunction with DTAH
(The Berczy, Yonge & Rich Condominiums) and previous project partners Richmond Architects
The building, completed in 2012, is a contemporary 17-storey glass building with dark concrete accents. The building's robust design is further enhanced by an interaction of planes, one running parallel to the street, the other running at an angle. The impressive glass-clad lobby features a fireplace, opulent recessed seating area, original artwork, and wood and metal details befitting of the building's refined style.
The Modern's building amenities leave nothing to be desired. Recreation comes in the form of gym and exercise room, dry sauna, billiards room, and party and meeting room with media capabilities and grand dining table. The pièce de résistance is the amazing rooftop terrace with breathtaking views of downtown Toronto. Landscaped, this large area houses a barbecue and dining area, outdoor lounge, and hot tub.
Sitting at the corner of Richmond Street East and Sherbourne Street, The Modern is surrounded by some of the city's best attractions, including trendy bars, cafes, and restaurants. Once a marginalized neighbourhood, the area has been transformed into a destination for foodies. Its proximity to Allan Gardens, and Moss and St. James Parks offers residents plenty of green space, while 24-hour transit on Queen Street makes 320 Richmond Street East easily accessible. The St. Lawrence Market, Distillery District, and cinemas and theatres near Yonge Street ensure that there is never a dull moment. Ryerson University and the Eaton Centre are also just a short walk away.
