Tridel unveils Ten York’s Innovation Suite, an ultra-tech savvy signature residence representing the future of condominium living
TORONTO, March 9, 2020 – Leading Canadian condominium developer Tridel is pleased to share detailed plans and full features for its Innovation Suite, one of the Signature residences located at Ten York, within Toronto’s downtown core. Expanding on Tridel’s robust smart home integration features within Ten York, the Innovation Suite merges technology and design seamlessly, providing incredible connectivity, comfort, and convenience for residents, creating an unparalleled experience in luxury condominium living.
“The Innovation Suite at Ten York represents the incredible possibilities that occur when design and technology meet,” said Stella Salvador, Principal Interior Designer, Tridel. “When we conceptualized this project, our vision was to create a luxury home experience unlike any other. We are thrilled to share more of the incredible features in this innovative project today, which will set a new design standard for condominium living in Toronto.”
The pathway to the Innovation Suite began when Tridel started exploring smart home technology, despite the lack of existing research or infrastructure within the space. It sought to garner a deep-rooted understanding of how smart home technologies could meet to exceed the needs of future residents. To develop the concept, Tridel opted to work within a vertical, multi-residential living space, selecting the Signature Suite as the “crown jewel” of the existing Tridel Connect smart home system by adding unbelievable features and amenities without compromising the elegance of the interior feel and finishes.
Immediately upon entering the suite, residents will be able to activate key features through voice control, like the centralized lighting, audio visuals and motorized blinds. The suite’s system control panel can be controlled by voice, phone, or touch, and can be programmed with different scenes to customize the suite experience at key times throughout the day – opening/closing blinds or turning lights on/off at sunrise or sunset for instance. Leading into the central living area, the first of four wireless charging pads throughout the suite make access to device power consistent and easily accessible. An ultra short-throw laser projector offers HD viewing and entertainment opportunities, while maximizing space and aesthetics by sitting in the millwork below the screen rather than hanging from the ceiling. All features of the Innovation Suite are seamlessly tied into the overall concept and design of the space and most are synchronized with the assistance of smart home assistants like Amazon’s Alexa.
Within the kitchen, cooking and meal preparation is made easy thanks to smart home appliances, controlled through the associated mobile app. Even the wall ovens can be monitored by smart technology, so waiting for the oven to preheat or spoiling recipes is a thing of the past. Plumbing fixtures like the kitchen faucet can also be controlled to helpfully complete tasks at request, like pouring a specific amount of water for a recipe, making everyday living easier than ever before. The powder room features a smart toilet with built-in speakers to play music, a heated seat and foot warmer, and more.
The intelligence and excellence of the smart home features within the Innovation Suite are at their peak in the master bedroom. In this personal reprieve, a glass partition goes from opaque to transparent with the touch of a button, offering opportunities to enjoy natural light or disconnect in privacy. An entertainment wall provides another smart TV system along with an electric fireplace, which uses mist and special lighting to create realistic looking flames. The ensuite bathroom creates an indulgent setting, ideal for relaxation and personal time with heated floors, a smart mirror that can be voice controlled and change lighting so one’s appearance can be checked thoroughly, a smart shower with voice-controllable water temperature and flow rate, and an AV-connected vibracoustic bath which can use sound to vibrate the water in the tub for a luxurious-in-bath massage.
“As our lives get busier and more hectic, we’re all looking for ways to simplify the everyday and find more time to pursue leisure or spend time with loved ones,” said Adrian Wang, Director of Innovation and Sustainability, Tridel. “With the Innovation Suite, we saw an opportunity to seamlessly integrate technology without compromising design. We’re using smart technologies to find modern conveniences and enjoy new luxuries, while also introducing new opportunities to build community and connection with the rest of the building’s residents and amenities.”
While integrating technology into the function of everyday living was a priority, the appearance of the suite still remained at the forefront, ensuring the Innovation Suite is both functional and beautiful. The bold, elegant interiors are modern, minimal, and refined, with the goal of inspiring wellness while being visually appealing. The warm wooden herringbone floors throughout the suite create a warm feeling of home and are coated in titanium oxide that is activated by light and motion, filtering and cleaning the air in the suite regularly. Large windows help bring in abundant natural light and evoke a feeling of connection to the world and outdoors, and the balcony features stunning views of Toronto’s beloved Centre Island.
