Encore At Crystal Tower Condominiums, at 8 Covington Road in Toronto, is a fifteen floor condominium building with a total 172 condominium suites.  It was built by Menkes Developments and was completed in the year 2000.

The Board started their refurbishment project in 2014/2015 with the main lobby as phase one and the residential corridors as phase 2. An overall design was selected for the whole building. The Lobby was transformed with a new colour palate reflected in wall covering, paint and soft materials. New floor tile was added and the lighting replaced. The transformation can be seen on our website.

Phase two, the corridors, began in early 2016. The corridors required a bit more finesse than the lobby as the base finishes, unlike the lobby, lacked interesting details and begged for some embellishing. Amazing features were added that made a remarkable difference. The new tile work that was added in the main lobby was continued through the ground floor corridor to the main elevator lobby then repeated on each residential floor. Rich, dark stained millwork was added at the elevator lobbies in the residential corridors and suite doors providing elegant accents. Mirrors and accent wall coverings added a more intimate and homey feel. But one of the most eye catching features was the carpet design. Stylish and rich. The elegant design transformed a mediocre corridor to one of warmth, elegance and style.
