Murano Towers – 38 Grenville St
Murano Condominium is a complex of 2 towers rising from a 2-story podium featuring recreational amenities above retail shopping. The architectural elegance of Murano is a fusion of simplicity and design, advanced building technology and, most of all, the inspiration of the legendary glassworks located in Italy.
Designed by Peter Clewes of architects Alliance, one of the worlds leading architectural firms, Murano will consist of two soaring towers rising from a 2-storey podium structure featuring recreational amenities above a collection of ground floor retail stores. The North Tower is a 35-storey building of glass and metal.
Centrally located at 38 Grenville Street/37 Gorsvenor St, just north of College, Murano Condominium is close to the TTC, Yonge Street. Walking distance to the Financial, Theatre, Fashion, Hospital and Research, Entertainment and Art and Design Districts.
Murano is one of the islands nestled in the lagoon of Venice. Home to the 7th century church of Santi Maria e Donato. Especially relevant are the dragon bones, marbles and mosaics of griffins, peacocks and eagles. Renowned centre since the 13th century for the ancient and secret art of Venetian glass.
Venetian glass is world famous for its brilliance, light, imaginative forms. The spectrum of colours range from deep amber to iridescent green to the rosepetal pink reminiscent of the dawn light sparkling off the waters of the lagoon.
This was the start. Therefore if the team could transpose the colours, shapes and art of Murano and Venice to Canada they would have the essence of a building that discerning Torontonians would truly appreciate.
38 Grenville Street has a Walk Score of 99 out of 100. This location is a Walker’s Paradise so daily errands do not require a car. This location is in the Bay Street Corridor neighborhood in Toronto. Nearby parks include College Park, Alexander Street Parkette and Joseph Sheard Parkette.
