Monaco comes to Collingwood
Considered by many to be Ontario’s playground thanks to the four-season resort lifestyle provided by the slopes of the Blue Mountains or the waves of Georgian Bay, the fact is that it’s the sophisticated urban renaissance of downtown Collingwood that’s redefining the area.
Once characterized by its quaint heritage buildings and charming small-town feel, downtown Collingwood is undergoing a revitalization of its main streets, transforming the area into a highly desirable destination for those seeking chic boutiques, trendy restaurants and dynamic entertainment venues.
Anyone familiar with real estate trends understands that as communities evolve it’s “usually connected to a residential renaissance,” says Paul Bonwick of Stonebrook Developments.
Bonwick, a long-time resident and civic leader in the Collingwood area, has seen firsthand the evolution of his community. Today, with his partners at Stonebrook, he is leading that transformation with the development of Collingwood’s first luxury condominium, Monaco, which will be located in the downtown heritage district within walking distance to its many restaurants, amenities, and shopping.
“Collingwood has always been a preferred lifestyle community for Ontarians seeking primary or recreational residences,” says Bonwick. “A destination for its luxurious homes along the water and its magnificent chalets has always existed, but urban residential opportunities in the downtown haven’t been available until now.
“With the enhancements and expansion of the downtown district, a new demand for modern urban living has been created, a demand Stonebrook will be satisfying with the residence at Monaco,” adds Bonwick.
Occupying nearly a full city block in Collingwood’s historic downtown district — located at 1 Hume Street — the six-storey complex has been designed by AJT Architects. Together with interior designers MC2 Designs, Stonebrook will integrate the heritage features of the area within a modern building envelope, creating a new landmark.
“While keeping the heritage feel of the neighbourhood, our architects, designers and construction team at YYZed will meet the sophisticated needs of today’s condominium buyers by weaving quality modern design throughout the common areas and suites,” says Ian Wookey, president of Seniority Investments Ltd.
Wookey — an active partner in the Monaco Development — and his father were largely responsible for the redevelopment of Toronto’s Yorkville Village, effectively creating a world-class neighbourhood.
Boasting an intimate collection of just 127 suites in a range of spacious layouts (one-bedroom, one-plus-den, two-bedroom, two-plus den, and three-bedroom designs) sizes range from 645 square feet to 2,400 square feet. Prices will start in the upper $300,000s.
Well-appointed suites, with an exacting attention to detail, each Monaco residence will boast spectacular views, 10-foot ceiling heights, gourmet Italian kitchens, spa-like full baths, high-end appliances and spectacular rooftop amenities.
