A detail to note in the kitchen at the presentation centre is how the 36-inch Wolf gas cooktop is recessed into the countertop, making the grates flush with the quartz surface and the knobs integrated into the millwork.
“This gets the knobs off the cooktop itself, so you don’t lose any space,” says Trepp, who points out that it’s also an esthetic detail. “If you can keep the knobs below eye level rather than looking at them, that’s a win.”
The electric wall oven and microwave are also by Wolf while the integrated 36-inch refrigerator and freezer and under-counter wine fridge are by Sub-Zero.
Natural stone is also a standout feature in the ensuite bathroom where book-matched travertine slabs provide a dramatic backdrop to the freestanding bathtub while also concealing the separate toilet with a glass door and a shower enclosure.
The engineered oak floor that runs throughout the units marks the entrance to the ensuite and continues under the two floating vanities and then transitions to the limestone floor tiles that continue up the walls of the bathroom.
The Italian vanities have LED under-cabinet lighting, and halo light surrounds while the chandelier above the tub – slightly but noticeably offset – adds another layer of light to the luxe space.
In addition to the residences, Legacy will also include ground-level retail space and a public plaza featuring an art seating sculpture by Vancouver sculptor Marie Khouri.
