YMCA and Patina

YMCA & Patina

Patina is a 42 storey condo tower above and behind the restored 1940 YMCA heritage building by McCarter and Nairne. The residential tower is by Endall Elliot and references the Electra building across the street in the shape of the tower. The YMCA facade was retained, a much bigger facility built behind it, and there’s a childcare centre with open space on the roof.
