Gläs sets the new standard for urban cool-chic. High ceilings with open concept living, and exposed concrete walls and ceilings provide a modern loft sensibility. The $60 million building is clad with a sleek glass and stainless steel skin with large useful balconies or terraces. Gläs houses 163 one bedroom, two bedroom units, eight penthouses and a new concept of city townhouses. The clean unfettered elegance of Gläs is a nod to the urban industrial fabric that still can be seen throughout the area. Not attempting to scream ‘look at me’, rather Gläs looks stylishly appropriate for its small lot.
