This boutique building, located right in the heart of Fort York, will connect residents to the many places that will make Local a haven in the heart of the city. Characterized by a contemporary use of glass and brick, a 15-storey tower will rise from the West while a seven-storey podium grounds the building from the East. This expansive podium will also serve as home to the many shared amenities of the Local Lounge, located on the seventh floor overlooking your new community. Harmoniously blending modern architecture with Fort York’s historic appeal, Local creates an ambience that is both fresh and welcoming.
Prime location. Unparalleled value. Exceptional design and construction. This is the heart of Local at Fort York.
“The heart of any community is its people and its sense of place. Local, in the heart of the emerging Fort York neighbourhood, embodies the very ethos of the traditional neighbourhood—intimate tree-lined streets fronted by urbane town homes and crowned by a gently terracing tower. A modern interpretation of classic and enduring materials, the building’s masonry, stone-like precast and glass facades will create a sense of place unique within the community, reflecting on its past and stepping proudly into tomorrow.”
