FABULOUSLY DESIGNED AMENITIES
Your home at St. Charles Market also includes fabulously designed and appointed amenity spaces; a welcoming lobby, a large fitness and recreational space, magnificent outdoor areas and inspired places to entertain, meet and gather.
ELEGANT LOBBY DESIGN
The elegant lobby was designed as a continuation of the public outdoor forecourt into the building. The lobby is a welcoming transitional space. It remains true to the character of the new building by introducing the same language of the surrounding public spaces inside.
The materials used in the lobby are traditional but applied in a contemporary manner; stone (terrazzo) flooring, dark wood furniture and brass. There is a grand sense of volume in the lobby anchored by the concrete-wrapped elevator bay and lightened by the large, coloured windows and green wall. Guests and residents will find this space comfortable and inviting as they move from the outside into the residences.
PUZZLE PARKING, AN AUTOMATED PARKING SYSTEM
The lobby provides secure access to an innovative and proven automated or “puzzle parking” system. The technology was developed in the 1980’s and has been used in Europe and in the US since the early 1990’s. The automated system uses individually controlled sliding pallets to manoeuvre each car independently to create a exible and highly effecient parking and retrieval system.
Hydraulic Scissor Lift Example
Lifts, are used when the vehicles are parked within the puzzle parking system on different levels.
Pallet and Carrier
The pallets are horizontally stored in parking levels and sit on top of carriers that can be moved in all directions.
