Aoyuan Property Group recently introduced its M2M Condos in North York to the community with a pop-up park and block party.
Newtonbrook Plaza in the Yonge and Finch area was transformed with 9,000 sq. ft. of real grass, cedar trees and lawn games, including life-sized Jenga, chess and Connect 4.
About 600 people from the neighbourhood and around the city came to check out the lush green pop-up park and engaged in various activities, including complimentary yoga, tai chi and Essentrics stretch classes. The party also featured a healthy gourmet barbecue and a variety of interactive entertainment.
Aoyuan, an international real estate developer known for integrating health and wellness amenities within its master-planned communities, is laying roots in Toronto. The company will transform the dated shopping plaza and parking lot near Yonge and Finch subway and GO station into M2M Condos, North York’s first true live-work-play community.
Plans for the 8.6-acre site include five residential condo towers, 180,000 sq. ft. of office and retail space, a daycare, community centre and a new public park. A new active laneway will connect the new public park to Yonge Street, facilitating access for the neighbourhood. A network of smaller scaled streets will wind through the M2M community, connecting residents to the new park and playground, and finer-grade retail.
The pop-up park installation and free community was intended to provide the neighbourhood a preview of Aoyuan’s plans for the newmixed-use village that will soon begin to take shape.
“Newtonbrook is set to become new destination for North York,” says Vince Santino, senior vice-president of development of Aoyuan. “It will have all the conveniences typical of a downtown neighbourhood.You really won’t have to go anywhere far if you live here. We are excited to be celebrating these changes with the Yonge and Finch community while introducing them to Aoyuan’s focus on healthy living.”
As part of Aoyuan’s emphasis on putting healthy living first, there will also be a large fitness and wellness component to M2M’s amenities. Interconnected greenspaces connect a wide range of suites from one-bedrooms to larger townhome units. Third floor condo amenities include a theatre and children’s play area, along with a double height yoga lounge and fitness studio that faces an internal courtyard. The ninth floor features a barbecue, party room and waterfall infinity pool with prime western exposure.
Following the sold-out success of the initial launch in June, Aoyuan is now releasing brand new suites at M2M.Located on the upper floors of M2M’s first tower, the new layouts will have breathtaking views of nearby residential greenspace, a new park to the East and urban landscapes that stretch down Yonge Street.
