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.┬áThe 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.
