Inspired by the 13th century Italian art form and aesthetic originating on the islands of Murano, the glass-encased Murano Condos soar 35 stories and 45 stories at the corners of Bay Street and Grenville Street (Murano North) and Grosvenor Street (Murano South). Designed by renowned architect Peter Clewes of architectsAlliance
, the intricate design portrays the artistry of Murano
and the sheer brilliance of Venetian glass. The project was completed in 2009 by award-winning Lanterra Developments, who was recently named the fourth top builder in Canada
by RealNet Canada.
Rising from a 2-storey podium structure, the two towers are linked by Club Murano, the buildings' exclusive resident amenities located on the second and third floors. To create an intimate separation of space, two seperate lobbies located on Grenville Street and Grosvenor Street feature original commissioned artwork by Barbara Astman, as well as rare imported glass sculptures, custom selected Italian leather furniture, and inviting two-way fireplace. Interiors by Alessandro Munge of Munge Leung Design carry the clean, symmetrical Murano artistry throughout all of the buildings' 731 suites.
Business and pleasure: welcome to Murano's downtown location. In the pinnacle of the city's cultural and financial engines, 37 Grosvenor Street and 38 Grenville Street are surrounded by international cuisine, eclectic coffee shops, trendy lounges, and the Theatre, Financial, and Entertainment Districts. The nearby Opera House, Design Exchange, Ed Mirvish Theatre, Panasonic Theatre, Carlton Cinema, and Yonge Street ensure that there's never a dull moment. Steps to the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, hospitals, Queen's Park, and MaRS Discovery District, Murano puts its residents at the pulse of Toronto.
