We stopped by on a day recently when architect Sol Wassermuhl, designer of Chaz, and President at Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, was in for a visit to the newly completed centre.
Sol's son Kevin is Assitant Development Manager at co-developer Edenshaw Homes. Here Kevin and Sol pose with Nancy-Paige Robinson - salesperson, Natalia Karsim - administrator, Michael Hochman - of Technology Consultants Inc, and Joseph Metcalfe - Development Manager, Edenshaw Homes.
The presenstation centre's interior has been outfitted by Cecconi Simone, designers of the building's amenities and its suites' luxurious finishes. Below is the sumptuous kitchen vignette.
The dishwasher and refridgerator are integrated into the cabinetry.
The bathroom vignette features a beautiful glass shower with a multi-head shower, all within a warm marble shell.

Chaz's form features diagonals that are 45° from Charles Street's east-west length. The angles are an hommage to the Macy Dubois-designed building which Chaz is replacing, while at the same time they provide views in multiple directions from many of the tower's units. Second to those angled façades, the building's most prominent feature will be its Chaz Club, perched 36 and 37 storeys in the air, and providing amazing views of the city's core.
Chaz has recently applied to increase its total height from 39 to 47 storeys. UrbanToronto will keep you updated this development, and throughout the project's construction.
