Edition Richmond Residences

 

Edition Richmond is a collection of 20 tailored residences in Toronto that elevate real estate to art.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Edition Richmond Residences are three storey; two and three bedroom homes, each living space is its own masterpiece, designed by Audax Architecture, a boutique firm and recipient of the 2011 Toronto Urban Design Award. Renowned interior designers, Cecconi Simone have cultivated homes that are aesthetically stunning and highly functional and which reference the clean geometrics of 20th century cubism. Cecconi Simone have strived to make these residences so exclusive in their design, that they have ventured through the painstaking details such as creating custom blend stains for the hardwood flooring that will be featured as a standard in each home and will be exclusive only to Edition Richmond Residences. Custom designed kitchens expand into the dining area and living room for a contiguous main floor that is perfect for entertaining. Homes feature 10 ft. ceilings for a voluminous living space that feels airy and comfortable to come home to. Sky yards offer magnificent views of the skyline, providing you your own urban oasis (most homes). And what makes this all so appealing is that these luxury residences are nestled in a quiet enclave just south of Queen West where the amenities of urban living are coupled with a peaceful streetscape.

Edition Richmond Residences embodies the spirit and liveliness of Queen West and is at the epicenter of some of Toronto’s greatest neighbourhoods – Trinty Bellwoods, Ossington Strip, Dundas West and Liberty Village. These areas offer the best in shopping, dining, culture, nightlife and recreation.

The opportunity to live the clean lines and crisp beauty of an Edition Richmond by Cecconi Simone can be your everyday reality – world-class design that may otherwise be out of reach.
