The Phoenix lobby is meant to be a space of pride and connection; a change of scenery for your workday or a place to lounge with neighbours against an incredibly Instagrammable backdrop.

Raw and refined, old and new, these pairing reflect the duality of design infused throughout the Phoenix.

Inspired by the legacy of the area’s industrial roots, The Phoenix rises with stunning architecture and a chic boho vibe, nestled in Etobicoke’s Mystic Point community just outside Toronto’s downtown core. Much like its mythical namesake, the Phoenix, is the only one of its kind. This singularity enhances its mystique, emphasizing its rarity and contributing to its symbolism of being a rare and exceptional force of nature.

The charming, character filled lobby, a meticulously crafted convergence of eclectic design and found treasures, serves as the vital link connecting The Phoenix’s two towers. It conveys a timeless well-traveled feel, a comfortable yet sophisticated layering of old and new.

Divided into distinct zones, each with a charming allure and function, the lobby reflects purposeful understanding of how people interact with their environment. With three unique seating areas, each nestled around a flickering fireplace, and an adjacent co-working zone with high-top seating and a thoughtfully designed kitchenette, the space invites moments of tranquility, camaraderie, and connection.

A stunning central skylight diffuses light throughout the space and is surrounded in wooden slats to create a captivating ceiling feature. Accentuated with rich, jewel toned furniture, the lobby details are finished in burnished amber and brass that together, create a colourful and inviting atmosphere with a unique feel. The dramatic iron canopy, rich wood details and eye-catching spherical wood sculptural installation pay homage to The Phoenix’s deep connection and proximity to the Mimico railway.

The fourth-floor is home to an expansive amenity offering, at the heart of which, lies a large entertainment zone that exudes elegance and comfort. Perfect for communal gatherings, the zone features an exquisite kitchen, cocktail lounge, games room, and private dining room that together form a lively, cohesive hub for easy social interaction. Custom millwork adds a personalized touch, while expansive countertops, complete with waterfall edge, elevate the design. Step outside the lounge onto an extensive rooftop terrace with multiple seating areas and BBQs, providing a refreshing extension of the indoor space.

The flexibility to book these spaces individually or altogether, allows residents to host events of varying. scales with ease. Equipped with wine fridges, full-sized appliances, AV capabilities, and various seating options, this social space foster a sense of pride and ownership. Beyond mere functionality, these amenities offer residents an opportunity to create cherished memories and build a strong sense of community.

Positioned on the third floor, this haven of serenity offers a captivating escape where crystal-clear waters of the pool are set against stunning views and the terrace beyond provides ample seating; a sanctuary for relaxation. Further enhancing the allure of the wellness zone is a zen-like lounge, where unique floating beds redefine the art of repose, while a spacious steam shower and sauna offers a rejuvenating escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The Phoenix’s commitment to authenticity and inclusivity extends seamlessly into its wellness offerings, providing residents with a holistic experience that nourishes both body and soul. Whether basking in the sun by the pool, unwinding on the terrace, or indulging in the zen-like lounge, every facet of the wellness zone reflects a dedication to elevating the living experience at The Phoenix.
