1000 Bay Condos (or 1Thousand if you're into the developer's branding) are one of a series of new condos in the works on this particularly stretch of the street, the most notable of which is the Britt at the former Sutton Place Hotel site. Not as soaring as some of the other developments nearby, the development will nevertheless contribute to the further densification of Bay St., something that makes sense given its amenities and the width of the road (it's rarely snarled with traffic south of Bloor).
While the building is another example of a glass condo, lead architect Peter Clewes has given it character with a two tower design that makes for a dramatic rooftop terrace atop the shorter structure. The depth of the balconies throughout the building also add visual interest and ward off an accusations of monolithic design.
