Profile Type: Residential Location: Charlottetown, PEI
Built on the remains of the historic Paoli’s Wharf at the end of Charlottetown’s Haviland Street, twenty-four residential units overlook a sweeping panorama of the inner harbour. Conveniently located, the unique site is a short distance from both the downtown core and the harbourside boardwalk and amenities of Victoria Park. The building’s design and detailing recalls the gentile resort hotels of our historic coastal getaways. Its form is a linear slab, four storeys tall and gently articulated in the middle, with stone clad turrets at each end. Elements such as the stair towers, the mansard roof and exterior decks further refine the building’s mass and scale.
Generous vistas are enjoyed by all residents as each unit opens onto the east and west sides. The four floors of living units sit atop a concrete parking structure base. Owners’ privacy is enhanced by having three separate elevator/stair cores servicing only eight units apiece.
