Clear Spirit stacks a 40-storey tower above a five-storey masonry base, while The Gooderham mounts a 37-storey tower above a rebuilt distillery tank house. The high-rise elements mark the eastern boundary of the Distillery District on the City skyline, while at ground level, the new low-rise and restored heritage buildings define a gateway and courtyard space at the southeastern corner of the District. Read as a single architectural composition, Clear Spirit and The Gooderham exemplify aA’s philosophy for intensifying urban neighbourhoods: deference to the scale and massing of an historic neighbourhood, counterposed with carefully considered, high-density contemporary architecture.
