Tridel’s new luxury condominium in Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood

Toronto’s beloved Annex neighbourhood is undergoing exciting changes as of late, with new restaurants and cultural destinations fast becoming a top draw for residents and visitors alike.

Regulars to the former industrialized area along Dupont Street might not recognize the midtown stretch today. With the introduction of new restaurants, boutiques and residential projects — including Tridel’s Bianca condominium- there has been a shift, turning “The New Dupont” into Toronto’s preeminent arts and culture corridor.

The Annex neighbourhood features an exciting list of high-end shops, heritage buildings, art galleries and cultural escapes such as Artscape Wychwood Barns, Toronto Archives, Casa Loma, Tarragon Theatre and the Royal Ontario Museum to name a few. Not to mention, the area is home to some of the city’s most renowned institutions including the University of Toronto, St. Michael’s College and Bishop Strachan, as well as an inviting expanse of greenspaces and parks to welcome Annex pedestrians.

Inarguably, one of the area’s biggest draws is the growing restaurant scene. Dupont is punctuated by the popular grouping of eateries by famed restaurateur and unofficial ambassador to the midtown strip, Anthony Rose, who has single-handedly turned the area into a dining destination with his five trendy bistros: Rose and Sons, Big Crow, Fat Pasha, Bar Begonia and Jewish-style grab ‘n’ go, Schmaltz Appetizing.

Rounding out the exotic flavours in the neighbourhood and making sure foodies revel in choice are French brasseries Le Paradis and Nord Bistro, Italian ristorante Mistura, Mexican diner Playa Cabana, and Aviv Mediterranean, among others.

Nestled in the centre of this cultural hot spot dubbed The New Dupont, is Bianca, Tridel’s newest boutique-style luxury residence located on Dupont, west of Spadina at Howland Avenue.

Designed by Teeple Architects, Bianca is a nine-storey mid-rise residence with a white façade and gently sloping exterior. Suites feature private outdoor spaces with expansive, open-air terraces and balconies, which set the stage for stylish entertaining or personal downtime in tranquility, and present beautiful views of Toronto, with Casa Loma to the northeast and the downtown skyline to the south.

Suites at Bianca are impressive, with thoughtful designs available in three collections. Most are between 1,000 and 2,000 square feet and available in a variety of layouts, including two- and three-bedrooms, many with the option of a den, as well as one-bedroom and one-bedroom plus den suites. Prices range from $520,000 to $2.9 million.

For those looking to escape into further luxury, Bianca’s penthouse, grand penthouse and sky penthouse floors feature suites ranging up to 2,499 square feet, with complementary oversized terraces.

Enchanting urban amenity areas have been deftly designed by the award-winning firm II by IV Design, and include a beautiful rooftop terrace complete with panoramic views of downtown, featuring a pool, cabanas, barbeques and an outdoor fireplace lounge. Inside, Bianca has an alluring two-storey lobby with a fireplace lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness centre with yoga and stretching studio, a party lounge and bar, and an elegant private dining room.

“Dupont Street and the Annex have an exciting energy,” says Jim Ritchie, executive vice president, sales and marketing at Tridel. “Offering a distinctive and lively mix of local shops, trendy restaurants, and community green spaces, it is rich with robust lifestyle options. With the addition of Bianca, and its distinctive features and amenities, ‘The New Dupont’ is fast becoming the new choice for today’s smartest and most stylish condo purchasers.”

Visit the new Bianca Presentation Centre, located at 408 Dupont Street. The Presentation Centre is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and from noon to 6 p.m. weekends; closed Friday.

Design: The New Look of Brass

Design: The New Look of Brass

by Linda Mazur

What’s hot in bathroom finishes? Believe it or not it’s brass.

This is not the shiny yellow brass of decades past, but unlacquered brass that highlights a beautifully aged, slightly antiqued finish. After making an impressive resurgence in popularity from their peak in the 90s, brass fixtures are among the hottest trends now in bathroom design, with today’s styles showcasing a warmer, more sophisticated vibe, than bold brass of decades past.

Unlacquered brass has an attractive look and feel all its own. Its warm, less formal than polished nickel, less typical than chrome. This unparalleled finish is organic, and is sometimes referred to as a “living finish”. Due to the absence of the lacquer, this durable solid brass finish is allowed to naturally age over time and develop a beautiful patina of colour and texture unique only to itself.

As a designer, I find that this ever-evolving finish is beyond adaptable. When designing bath spaces I find I’m drawn to the unlacquered brass finish for bathroom fittings and accessories. It offers sophistication, old world charm and yet modernism. It can be used in an upscale setting, more rustic inspired spaces, or if you’re creating a more bohemian vibe.

One of the hardest working elements in any bathroom are your faucets; they sustain a large amount of daily use and abuse. As such, choosing the right one goes beyond simply looks. You should consider functionality, durability. Look to ensure that the finish will last and look as beautiful as the day it was installed. As obviously functional bathroom fittings and accessories are, they can also be considered the finishing touches or “jewellery” to your bathroom renovation. Making the right selections can be the difference between a moderately successful bathroom design and renovation, or a truly remarkable one.

When looking for beautiful bathroom fittings and superior quality, one company that always delivers is Victoria + Albert. Their impressively designed faucets are made using traditional techniques with high quality materials. Here you will find transitional styles that boast a graceful combination of classical traditionalism with modern lines, to one of my personal favourites, the Florin collection, that captures the essence of the Art Deco aesthetic in a fresh new way. You are sure to find a look to enhance your bathroom designs, while perhaps entertaining their latest unlacquered brass as the finish.

The faucets and fittings are the “crown jewel” of any bathroom renovation.

 

Follow some of my important design tips;

  • Decide early on if you are wanting counter top mounted faucets or wall mounted faucets as critical to your plumbing rough-ins;
  • Lavatory, bath and shower faucets and fittings do not necessarily need to match in style as many different looks can complement each other, however the closer the combination of styles the more pleasing the overall look;
  • Do your research select the best quality faucets your budget permits to ensure longevity and durability.

Linda Mazur is a nationally publicized designer and Principal of Linda Mazur Design Group.

With almost two decades of experience this in demand multi-disciplinary design firm is known for creating relaxed stylish spaces and full-scale design builds within Toronto, the GTA and throughout Canada.

Kaitlin Communities – It’s all about the location

You’ll find the lifestyle you’re looking for in a Kaitlin Community

Baby boomer or not, it’s a freeing time of life when you get to make choices in terms of how you want to spend your time and where you want to live.

Seniors now outnumber young people, and it’s this portion of the population that are being catered to by lifestyle builders. There are lots of choices out there, but Kaitlin Corporation emphasizes both components when developing a new community – life and style.

Determine the must-haves on your wish list. Do you want to live by the water? Or maybe next to a championship golf course? Or does living in an historic small town appeal to you? Chances are that Kaitlin Corporation has exactly what you’re looking for.

“Location has always been a major consideration for our communities,” says Bill Daniell, president of Kaitlin Corporation. “We take pride in how well-built our homes are. But beyond that, we know it’s really important for our owners to live in a great setting. They want to have amenities tied to their quality of living, such as trails, parks and water – right at their doorstep.”

HARBOURVIEW GRAND

If you’re passionate about being close to the lake, then check out Kaitlin’s Harbourview Grand project in Port of Newcastle. Here, you can enjoy homes with waterfront views, a fabulous trail system that runs parallel to Lake Ontario and a local, waterfront marina if your boat also needs a home. For easy access to the GTA, both GO transit and Highway 401 are nearby.

BAYPORT VILLAGE

If a more cottage-like setting is your cup of tea, Bayport Village is adjacent to the local marina on Georgian Bay. Bayport Village is connected to the thriving community of Midland by an in-town trail system, and is only 90 minutes north of Toronto.

LOYALIST COUNTRY CLUB

A little further east is a brand new community that is being built around a championship course that often hosts Canadian PGA tournaments. Loyalist Country Club takes advantage of an onsite clubhouse and restaurant, as well as an active social club, and is a short drive to local parks and the university town of Kingston.

MODO CONDOS AND TOWNS

Located in Bowmanville, residents of MODO Condos and Towns are able to walk to local shops and restaurants, and enjoy everything that living in a charming, historic town has to offer. The common thread that ties together all Kaitlin Corporation communities are the outstanding models, which combine exceptional floorplans, design features, finishing touches and upgrades to provide you the style and the life that you’re looking for.

The Village at St. Elizabeth

Resort-style living comes to Hamilton

A great time was had by all at the official launch of The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills on June 30th, 2017. Perfect weather, good food, entertainment, and Canada Day celebrations enhanced the festivities.

This development has been getting a great deal of buzz due to its unique concept. The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills offers a resort-style alternative for those who are looking to scale down, but not stop living life to the fullest. Located at the corner of Rymal Road West and Garth Street in Hamilton, the 114 acres will be transformed into a themed resort lifestyle community, complete with an old town square, restaurants and shops. “Residents, especially baby boomers, want fun, excitement, socialization and the opportunity to enjoy life when they downsize,” says Tony DiFruscio, president of Zest Communities.

Designed by renowned Forrec Ltd., and developed by ZEST Communities, the 800 million-dollar redevelopment will set a new standard for the future of 55-plus living. The Village is expected to accommodate more than 3,000 residents, with the goal of turning what is currently a typical, adult-living complex into a themed lifestyle resort. It will be an ongoing project that will grow as the population grows, without any interruption for the existing residents.

Reservations are now being accepted for Upper Mill Pond – a mid-rise building consisting of 157 suites ranging in size from 733 to 1,328 square feet. Upper Mill Pond also features luxurious amenities that will include a library/lounge with a cafe/juice bar, as well as a health club with an indoor pool, a hot tub, an exercise room, a movement studio and a spa with treatment rooms. In addition, residents have access to a large events’ room with kitchen facilities, five guest suites and a gracious patio that overlooks a spectacular natural setting, which encompasses ponds and hiking trails.

Don Baiocco, Rob Baiocco, Tony Difruscio, (co-owners Zest Communities); David Sweet (MP); Judi Partridge (Councillor Ward 15); Lyne Paquin and Pete Carriere (new home purchasers)
Don Baiocco, Rob Baiocco, Tony Difruscio, (co-owners Zest Communities); David Sweet (MP); Judi Partridge (Councillor Ward 15); Lyne Paquin and Pete Carriere (new home purchasers)

The suites at Upper Mill Pond are available through the popular market-value life lease option, similar to the existing 570 garden homes at The Village. Under this program, residents have the right to occupy their suite, and use the common facilities for their lifetime. Security of tenure and flexibility, along with the opportunity for equity appreciation are among the key reasons for choosing life lease housing. “It’s a competitive alternative to condominiums, and there’s a noticeable sense of community in life lease developments that you don’t often find in other 55-plus housing options,” says Gary Zock, president of the consulting firm Zock & Associates.

Get a new lease on life at The Village at St. Elizabeth Mills.

CONTACT INFORMATION

The Presentation Centre is located at 1 Yates Gate in Hamilton, and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Prestigious living in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Known as one of the prettiest towns in Ontario, Niagara-on-the-Lake’s old town exudes colonial charm, and is surrounded by the serenity of wine country. Set in the heart of this colourful area is the newest release by Woodcastle Homes – The Vines.

Aptly named, this low rise community is positioned to take advantage of all that Niagara-on-the-Lake has to offer, including golf courses, fabulous restaurants, world-class theatre, historical sites and, of course, some of the best wineries in the world.

LIKE A FINE WINE

Woodcastle Homes is a custom homebuilder of luxury residences. At The Vines, a limited collection of 59 homes are priced from the $500,000s, and include a selection of single family homes, bungalow townhouses with lofts, and two-storey homes with lofts. All models come with a single-car garage, and include the lavish features and finishes that Woodcastle is known for.

According to the Niagara Association of Realtors, average home prices in Niagara-on-the-Lake are around $800,000, making The Vines all the more desirable.

The Vines is positioned in an established, upscale neighbourhood, with select lots backing onto the Virgil’s Centennial Sports Park, providing convenient access to indoor, and outdoor, athletic facilities.

CULTIVATE NEW INTERESTS

Not only is Niagara-on-the-Lake an exceptional community in which to live in terms of beauty, but the area is filled with activities and amenities, like no other. The main street boasts eclectic boutiques, fine dining and galleries, and the Niagara Parkway Recreation Trail is one of the most picturesque walking/biking paths around. Pack a picnic and take a stroll along the river.

The Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club dates back to 1875, and has earned the title of North America’s oldest golf course. A little further afield, you’ll find casinos on both sides of the border, many other golf course options, and the excitement of Niagara Falls. Big-league sporting events are held in Buffalo, and when the mood strikes, you’re only 45 minutes from the Buffalo airport, where inexpensive flights to warmer climes are available.

Also close by is the Harvest Barn Country Market, which sells fresh, local produce. Silversmith Brewery is located in a former 19th century church, and The Bass Pro Shop is adjacent to the factory outlet mall on the outskirts of town.

The Arbour Condo Villas

The Best in Adult Living comes to Peterborough

Mason Homes recently introduced the Arbour Condo Villas in Peterborough. Located within Parklands, Mason’s master-planned community will offer a limited release of 87 homes in a quiet enclave, including Classic and Courtyard bungalows, as well as bungalows with loft designs.

Recognized as a respected builder in Peterborough, Mason won the Builder of the Year and the Green Builder of the Year awards in 2016 from the Peterborough and Kawartha’s Home Builders’ Association. Mason also won the 2017’s Energy Star® for New Homes Builder of the Year.

Showcasing Mason’s popular Arts and Crafts exterior designs, these exceptional residences will range in size from 1,068 to 2,200 square feet. A variety of interior and exterior design options are available, along with your choice of fine features and finishes throughout.

The Arbour Condo Villas will be set against a backdrop of protected mature woodlands, green spaces, and will include beautiful community parks, ponds and walking trails.

THE COURTYARD COLLECTION

The residences of Mason’s Courtyard Villa Collection are aptly named as they feature a private, outdoor courtyard that’s perfect for relaxing or entertaining, and requires minimal maintenance and upkeep.

Designs in this collection feature rear-laneway, double-car garages that provide direct access from the home via a connector, which also contains a handy mudroom, laundry room and powder room. The positioning of the garage at the the back of the home enhances the interior living space, and allows for full width porches at the front.

THE CLASSIC COLLECTION

Mason Homes’ signature exterior elevations are highlighted on the Classic Collection. These home styles reflect Ontario’s rich architectural heritage.

Wider lots allow for welcoming porches and an abundance of windows at the front and at the rear of the homes. So as not to impose on the front facade, the double-car garages are set back and integrated as part of the overall design. Each home style is available in a range of professionally designed, exterior colour palettes, which augment the community’s charming streetscapes.

THE MASON ADVANTAGE

As with every new home built built by Mason, each one is Mike Holmes Certified and built to Energy Star® standards – saving you up to 20 per cent on your household energy consumption.

Celebrating more than 55 years of excellence in development, design and new home construction, Mason Homes remains one of Ontario’s most successful and forward-thinking new home construction companies.

The designs available at The Arbour Condo Villas are affordable and offer energy saving benefits, along with cutting-edge building materials, and popular features and finishes.
