More on the Rooftop Amenities at The Nest
Last week we interviewed the folks at II by IV, the interior design firm behind all of our amenities including the interior space adjacent to the rooftop. This week, we had the opportunity to chat with Janet Rosenberg of Janet Rosenberg & Studio, the talent behind the outdoor rooftop space.
For those who haven’t yet had the chance to pop by or inquire about our rooftop amenities, it’s essentially the perfect intimate lounge. It’s fitted with high-end exterior furnishings and an outdoor fire pit, an outdoor kitchen and BBQ area, exterior dining space, and tons of green roof areas. And of course, there’s the seamless connection between the indoor and outdoor amenities spaces which will make party throwing as easy as 1,2,3!
In comparison to other developments in the city, Janet tells us that “the design of the rooftop amenities space speaks to a sophisticated urban lifestyle.” She believes that the rooftop amenities are something that lifestyle condo dwellers are looking for (we obviously agree!).
But let’s go back to that fire pit – Janet agrees with us that fire pits are a great focal point and definitely make for a warm and intimate social gathering spot. Fire pits will also allow for our residents to enjoy the amenities even as it get’s a bit colder, or as it just starts to warm up in spring. Janet tells us that if she lived at The Nest, she would use the rooftop to throw small intimate BBQ parties with friends, or even just head up there after a long day at work with a good book, a warm blanket and a great glass of wine!
As for the views, Janet tells us that they are “paramount in the design”. Her team left the railings unobstructed by plants and furniture so that residents can go right to the edge and take in the view.
“The scale of the building and its relationship to Hillcrest’s leafy green canopy of trees really gives the feeling of being perched in the treetops, yet still very much a part of the neighbourhood’s urban fabric.”
We think Janet has all convinced that The Nest is THE place to live. Come on over to our Presentation Centre at St Clair Ave West, just west of Arlington on the north side, or call us at 416.223.0003.
