Concord Adex unveils its final piece of the Concord CityPlace community – an iconic tribute to Canada
Concord has revealed the crowning jewel of its Concord CityPlace community.
Concord Canada House features two Canadian-themed residential towers that will stand on the existing Presentation Centre location, completing Concord’s commitment to the CityPlace community. As the final development, Concord Canada House will redefine the Toronto skyline, and will complete the 45-acre masterplan community that began over 20 years ago.
“In 1997, we began transforming Toronto’s former railway lands and the CN Tower area into the vibrant community you see today,” said Dennis Au-Yeung, Chief Financial Officer at Concord. “This year marks Concord CityPlace’s 20th Anniversary and we’re proud to have played a part in the spectacular change that has taken place in this neighbourhood in the last two decades.”
Today, Concord CityPlace is a vibrant and mature community, with parks, restaurants, libraries, day care, a future community centre and school, and other services. With the addition of Concord Canada House, Concord CityPlace will be the largest residential development created in the City of Toronto, consisting of 31 residential towers, 10,000 homes, and more than 20,000 residents.
Concord Canada House is a celebration of Concord’s commitment to redeveloping Toronto’s downtown. To represent this, each of the towers of Concord Canada House will feature a signature maple leaf motif, which will be illuminated at night to showcase the iconic Canadian theme. Along with the illuminated towers, various elements throughout the project have also been meticulously designed and incorporated into the project to pay tribute to Canada, its culture and incredible landscape.
Located at 23 Spadina Avenue and Bremner Boulevard in the heart of Downtown Toronto, Concord Canada House will include 1,400 condominium residences, 26,000 sq. ft. of office space, and 21,000 sq. ft. of dynamic shopping, dining and entertainment that will wrap around the entire base of the project. The two iconic residential towers will reach 68- and 79-storeys, providing residents with unmatched views of Lake Ontario, Toronto Island and the city, and create two new landmarks in the Toronto skyline.
“Understanding the significance of its location, history and the vibrant Concord CityPlace community, we decided to build our crown jewel as a tribute to Canada, Toronto, and the neighbourhood we’ve spent the last 20 years growing,” says Gabriel Leung, Vice President, Development at Concord. “We decided to take this condo development one step further and set out to bring iconic Canadian elements to life.”
Along with a community that is already within walking distance of Canoe Landing Park, the Rogers Centre, restaurants and the entertainment district, Concord Canada House will add a significant collection of amenities. Building on the underlying Canadian theme, this community will add 60,000 sq. ft. of amenity space that will include a resort-style spa and indoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness gym, and a spectacular rooftop lounge. Concord Canada House will set new heights in its amenity design — the roof top level will be the highest residential amenity in Canada. Concord Canada House’s SkyGym and SkyLounge on the 68th and 79th floors will give residents panoramic views of the city and Lake Ontario. Whether it’s taking in the views from the hot tub, watching the sun rise during your morning workout, or watching the sunset with your friends in the banquet lounge, residents will have exclusive access to one of Canada’s truly unique amenities.
Along with the SkyGym and SkyLounge, Concord Canada House will have another one-of-a-kind amenity for its residents to enjoy, an iconic outdoor space above the 10-storey podium that will include a Rideau Canal-inspired ice skating rink that will transform into an outdoor pond in the summer. With amazing views in every direction, Concord Canada House will also feature oversized outdoor living rooms with wood grain decks and built-in heaters so residents can enjoy the great outdoors all year round.
With a host of luxurious amenities that will make Concord Canada House a remarkable and dynamic place to live, there is also a collection of features that make it effortlessly practical. There’s an automatic touchless car wash system and a wheelwash station to ensure your car and the parkade always look their best, and in keeping with Concord Green Initiatives and commitment to the environment, the parkade will also feature electric vehicle charging.
From its distinctly Canadian-themed architecture and design, incredible amenities, luxurious residences and iconic location, Concord Canada House will be a spectacular tribute to Canada, and is destined to redefine luxury living in Downtown Toronto.
