Designs Released for Central Park House in Canada
Gensler has released designs for Central Park House, a 41-story high rise in Burnaby, Canada, that will feature an off-center glazed atrium halfway up, dezeen reports. The atrium section, called the Horizon Pavilion, will feature a pool with a view. This communal section of the building will jut out at one end and come in at the other, like a block being nudged out of a “Jenga” game. Along with the pool, the 15,000 ft2 of amenities for residents will also include a gym and a lounge. Gensler designed Central Park House, which will contain 355 residences, for Bosa Properties. Each apartment or townhouse will come with its own “specially equipped den” designed to accommodate residents’ work-from-home needs as a result of the pandemic. Entry to the building will be touchless. The project, which is Gensler’s first residential tower in Canada, is due to complete in 2025.
