Regular readers know about my adventures at the Toronto Autoshow at The MINI Beachcomber Concept booth. I was happy to attend a party for the opening of the new MINI dealership in the east end of the city.Â The corner at Broadview and Eastern has changed a lot since my east end hanging out days. There is a gorgeous loft building right across from the MINI dealership. The party was a bit of a weird experience for me, no fashion people.Â It was a lot of MINI owners and their partners sprinkled with staff and architect friends.
It’s beautiful. It immediately caught my eye as I was walking down Broadview. It’s a building obsessed with right angles and bright colours.Â The masters behind the design is Toronto based Raw Design. They are also behind another interesting development on College Street, The Cube Lofts. The building has the capabilities to have a green roof.Â There is also a rainwater holding tank for sprinkler use and solar panels for hot water use.
The building is just fun inside.Â They’ve decorated by putting MINI roofs on the walls.Â One of the highlights it the large window facing the 12 service bays in the waiting area on the 2nd floor.
