A Toronto condo tower developer says it is looking for ways to keep doors open on the balconies in its high-rise towers.
The city of Toronto’s Residential Tenancies Act prohibits the use of automatic door stopping on balconies of two or more units, but developer Paul Giamatti says that isn’t the case at the 300-unit condo towers in his towers at Yonge and St. Clair streets and at the city’s largest condo complex, the Condominium City.
The developer says its doors are open and locked and has been using a variety of devices to open and close the doors in each tower.
Giamatti said he would like to be able to lock and unlock the doors himself, but has not yet found the right solution.
He has developed a method to remotely lock and unlock the doors by hand.
Gibbons said he will likely have to wait until summer to see if the city approves his plan to make door stoppers mandatory.
He says the first condo tower will be finished by the end of the year.
Giaiamatti has built condos in Toronto for more than 40 years and has built a reputation for innovation.
His company has built two residential towers in Toronto, the CityPlace in East York and the Condo City in East Vancouver.
