Chaz on Charles on 45 Charles St E is an urbane condominium soaring thirty-nine storeys. The building features an elegant five-storey limestone-clad podium with a series of recessed windows that create a distinct dramatic look. Stepping back from the podium, the tower’s sleek aerodynamic shape gives it propulsion, and other elements add energy and elegance to the overall design. Exposed columns on the exterior of Chaz’s tower create a series of dazzling and landmark-worthy gestures on the building’s skin. Unlike other condominiums with balconies tacked onto the building, at Chaz Condos they’re an integral part of the exterior, recessed into the alcoves created by this unique shape.
The architectural “pièce de résistance” is a two-storey cantilevered box framed in white concrete on the thirty-sixth and thirty-seventh levels, and will be illuminated at night. This is the Residents’ Private Chaz Club, a resident’s-only social lounge and 5-star dining space. From miles around, Torontonians will look up and see residents and their guests enjoying cocktails on the club’s terrace or relaxing inside this glass box in the sky.
Residents and visitors to Chaz on Charles Condos will enter under a canopy that protects them from the elements, and inside, two lobbies provide a vibrant welcome, like that of an upscale private club. The Cecconi Simone-appointed lobbies will buzz with activity. The living room-style West Lobby features bookshelves, a fireplace and banquettes - perfect for lingering over the morning paper. Mirroring this space on the east side is the East Lobby divided into a series of smaller spaces: The Living Room, The Wet Bar, The Dining Room (with wet bar and catering kitchen) and The Billiards Room - all of which open onto a landscaped terrace. The East Lobby spaces can also be booked for private functions. The colour palette is trademark Cecconi Simone white and light - and the furniture contemporary and comfortable, creating a mid-century modern aesthetic. Attentive 24-hour concierge service is provided.
For those who like to break a sweat or relish a little pampering in their downtime, Chaz offers plenty of options. The building’s second floor has a fully-equipped gym, combination yoga/Pilates studio and spinning room, men’s and women’s change rooms with steam rooms, and a Relaxation room with massage chairs and hydra massage bed. A facility unique to the Chaz complex is a computer gamers arena powered by the latest online computer gaming environment. Six gamer chairs are outfitted with television monitors and an integrated audio system with sub-woofers.
The second floor has two theatres, one with a 3-D Hollywood-style screening room, the other a sports-viewing room with sofa-style seating and a small lounge attached. The second floor complex also has a fully equipped Business room, plus one- and two-bedroom guest suites to accommodate overnight company in style.
Another unique amenity is the Pet Spa located off the vestibule of the West Lobby entrance.
