Last week we posted about Streetcar Developments's takeover of one entire block near Queen Street West and Gladstone Avenue; over the next couple of years they're dropping three separate condo projects onto the site. Today let's look at the second; 8 Gladstone, or 8G for short.
8 Gladstone has 89 units spread over eight storeys, with suites ranging in size from the 471 sq. ft. one-bedroom to the 1212 sq. ft. two-bedroom+den penthouse. It's nearly fully occupied, with just two of the larger units still available. The building's exterior features rosy brick and frosted-glass balconies, and while Streetcar's statement that 8G "takes inspiration from the historic Gladstone Hotel" seems a little generous, its scale is similar to the Gladstone's, and it blends with its location pretty well. Some interesting design choices were made; for example, all suites have textured porcelain-tile flooring throughout (except in the bedrooms), instead of laminate or engineered hardwood. Try not to drop any glassware.
