Rising 28 storeys above the Church-Wellesley Village in downtown Toronto, 81 Wellesley is a sophisticated addition to a vibrant neighbourhood. Outdoor and retail spaces were designed to encourage interaction, inviting people to slow down and spend time with neighbors and friends. We carried the mid-century modern aesthetic of the exterior architecture into the interiors, which are stylish yet unpretentious.
