Industry Report: Lack of Missing Middle Making real estate Increasingly Unaffordable

Industry Report: Lack of Missing Middle Making real estate Increasingly Unaffordable

Shortage of shovel-ready land is impeding GTA’s ability to build complete communities

The GTA is in danger of becoming the next London, Hong Kong or New York City — highly desirable cities but unaffordable for most people.

Much of the dramatic increase we have seen in the prices of new homes, resale homes and rentals is the result of supply being outstripped by demand. The population of the GTA has grown significantly, but housing supply has not kept up.

An answer to this supply crisis may lie in building our way to affordable housing much like Tokyo has. The Japanese city has made home construction easy; zoning laws grant landowners greater flexibility to do what they want with their property, allowing them to use their land with little pushback. With a growing population of 13 million, builders constructed more than 142,000 homes in 2014, making it possible to purchase a detached single-family home near the city core for $300,000.

Housing options for people living in the GTA have been either large expensive lowrise dwellings or smaller highrise condos. What we’re missing in the GTA are townhouses, triplexes and midrise buildings.

Montreal has embraced the power of this “missing middle.” Developers are building lowrise dwellings, mostly three-storey flats and midrise apartment buildings within the city and in the suburbs, making Canada’s second-largest city more affordable than Greater Vancouver.

The homebuilding and land development industry wants to design and build homes and communities much like Tokyo and Montreal that meet the housing needs of the GTA. That is our business, that is what we do — but it is getting harder as challenges grow in number and scale. Complicated and restrictive government policies, already lengthy yet still worsening approval processes, a shortage of shovel-ready and approved land on which to build, escalating land prices and the growing issue of NIMBYism (not in my backyard) are impeding our ability to build homes and communities.

Excessive red tape and increasing delays in planning approvals are another huge challenge. Across the GTA it is taking longer and longer to get the go-ahead for projects. A typical new lowrise development can take a decade or more and highrise projects can take up to seven years.

The approvals process is further delayed due to zoning bylaws in many GTA municipalities that have not been updated for decades. All new development applications must conform to area zoning bylaws to get approved but unfortunately many municipalities are operating with badly outdated bylaws that don’t align with provincial intensification policies.

It’s time for government to take action to address our housing supply problem. Across the GTA, the planning approval process needs streamlining to remove red tape, pre-designate and prezone land and approve all outstanding environmental assessments that relate to critical infrastructure. As well, zoning bylaws need updating to support intensification policies — policies that need to be supported with public education.

This is not a time for small plans. It’s time to work together and address our housing supply crisis so that today’s new homebuyers and future generations have somewhere to live.

Lifetime Developments Launches New Panda Condos in the Heart of Toronto

Times Square in New York. London’s Piccadilly Circus. The Old Town Square in Prague…These are just some of the world’s great pedestrian centres that have come to define the world’s great cities.

While many of us would include Toronto on any listing of great international urban centres, those of us who know and love ‘the 6’, recognize that in many ways it was the opening in 2002 of Yonge-Dundas Square that cemented the city’s place among the world’s best. Since its opening, the Square has hosted countless public events, performances and art exhibitions, establishing itself as a defining characteristic for our city and a global icon.

Lifetime Developments, Panda Condos, Toronto

“It’s a world class destination, in a world class city,” says Lifetime Developments’ Brian Brown. “Yonge and Dundas is the heart of the city. Whether you’re visiting from Scarborough or Scotland, no visit to Toronto is complete without time spent at Yonge and Dundas.”

Brown should know. His company, Lifetime Developments, is one of Toronto’s most successful condominium companies. From Liberty Village to the Financial District, and from King West to Yonge and Eglinton, Lifetime has earned a reputation for developing award-winning communities in Toronto’s best locations.

“There’s nothing more important to the success of a new condo project than its location,” says Brown, as he and his team – including Cecconi Simone, Turner Fleischer Architects and Baker Real Estate – prepare to launch Panda Condos at 20 Edward Street… steps from Yonge-Dundas Square.

Lifetime Developments, Panda Condos, downtown Toronto

A 30-storey tower, defined by its glass three-storey podium, bold vertical lines and two-tone palette, the development sits directly across from the neighbouring Ryerson University Campus, while offering unparalleled views of the downtown core, midtown Toronto, and Lake Ontario.

Featuring 555 extraordinary suites, designed by Cecconi Simone, they are both modern and memorable. Offered in a range of layouts – from an efficiently designed 356 square feet to an expansive 1,462 square feet – which includes one, one-plus-study, one-plus-den, two, two-plus-study, two-plus-den, and large three-bedroom designs. With floor-to-ceiling windows and large, spacious balconies, the dynamic energy of the surrounding neighbourhood will flood the units, highlighting Cecconi Simone’s distinctive design touches.

Panda’s kitchen designs include custom cabinetry, Euro-style stone countertops, tile backsplashes and an ultra-modern, sleek appliance package including integrated refrigerator, exhaust fan and dishwasher. Elegant and timeless bathrooms offer custom designed cabinetry, hand-selected countertops and sinks, decorative light fixtures and an accessory package chosen by the design team.

Lifetime Developments, Panda Condos, Toronto downtown

The site itself boasts both a perfect Transit and Walk Scores (100) and high Bike Score, offers convenient PATH access, and unparalleled proximity to Ryerson University, U of T, and the Eaton Centre.

“While the location offers an abundance of choice for residents looking for chic retailers, internationally-celebrated universities, hot restaurants and cool night life, hospitals, libraries and ample transit options, Panda is committed to matching the area’s dynamic lifestyle options, with a range of condo amenities that exceed expectations,” adds Brown.

Among the amenities offered at Panda includes unique facilities geared towards the modern student or young professional, including study spaces, gaming room, fitness and yoga studio, theatre and sports facilities.

“While it may have taken the opening of Yonge-Dundas Square to cement Toronto’s international reputation as a great destination to visit,” says Brown, “Panda Condos will establish the location’s reputation as a great location to live.”

The Mirabelle Luxury Condominiums

Cover Story: The Mirabella Luxury Condominiums

Diamante’s latest exquisite development offers one of the last opportunities to live exclusively on the Lake Shore

Standing at 38-storeys, Diamante’s latest development, The Mirabella Luxury Condominiums — composed of a pair of stunning towers brought together by an elegant classically inspired podium — offers one of the last opportunities to live exclusively on the Lake Shore. The building will have a classical limestone look with timeless proportions, accents of bay windows, and tapered columns. The architecture, the luxurious irreplaceable views in all directions, and the exclusive unprecedented amenity floor which contains over 20,000 ft2 of indoor and outdoor amenities, define Mirabella.

Diamante brought together a remarkable team of architects who together designed a building that is enduring and rich in both texture and detail, while also taking cues from the legacy of waterfront exhibition architecture. The lead architect is Andrew Shields of Scott Shields Architects, collaborating with David Winterton of ERA Architects. Shields first worked for Hariri Pontarini, a highly-respected firm where he worked on an enviable list of high profile award winning Toronto highrise condominium projects, including One Park Place, and Shangri-La Toronto. In 2013, Shields started his own firm and then merged with Deborah Scott in the beginning of 2016 to form Scott Shields Architects where they combined Shield’s 10-plus years of experience in highrise residential design with Scott’s 35 years of experience working in the architectural industry. Scott Shields Architects has designed other Diamante projects, including The Diamond on Yonge and 100 Davenport.

David Winterton first worked in Toronto for a decade in commercial firms and then for ERA Architects, who’s projects include such iconic Toronto sites as the Distillery District and the Brick Works, before leaving to New York where he eventually joined Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA). While with RAMSA, Winterton worked on a number of different projects such as 15 Central park West, a building that is emblematic of modern traditionalism. After hearing about Winterton’s return to Toronto and ERA, Diamante president Julie Di Lorenzo seized on the opportunity and put Winterton together with Shields to work on the design for Mirabella.

“It’s been a great collaboration,” says Shields. “We have two very different skill sets coming together. I work very closely with Diamante in developing a building that addresses the site and creates great options for future residents. I know what the client is looking for and I deliver it. David brought fantastic experience to the team that allowed us to really focus in on the finer grain details of the building. We make a good team.”

Spacious and elegant in design, Mirabella offers many suite types, including one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den, and three-bedroom suites, ranging in size from 457 to 1,510 square feet. Most suites have awe-inspiring views of the lake or park. All suites include state of the art features and finishes with layouts that have been meticulously and intelligently designed for spacious comfortable living. Dining areas flow seamlessly with living spaces, and the suites are equipped with sleek and efficient kitchens layouts with premium countertops and stainless steel appliances. All suites have well-sized balconies.

All suite owners share in a sumptuous 11th floor dedicated to quality of life with forever spectacular views. The amenity floor features an array of social, wellness, and recreational amenities, including an indoor pool with an unobstructed view of the lake and city skyline and a fully-equipped exercise room with stunning views of High Park. Additionally, residents can relax and experience a serene oasis overlooking the lake and park through Mirabella’s outdoor terrace which is framed by greenery and features comfortable lounge and outdoor dining areas, barbecues, and a reflecting pool with waterfall.

Mirabella is in a parkland sanctuary that is minutes from everywhere. Residents are a short walk away from the verdant High Park as well as the Sunnyside Boardwalk, which offer a multitude of different activities. With many local neighbourhoods nearby, including Bloor West Village, Roncesvalles Village, and High Park-Swansea, homeowners have close access to an exceptional variety of shops and restaurants. From local bakers and cheese shops to traditional coffee shops and clothiers, all your needs are met living at Mirabella.

“The site is rare,” says Di Lorenzo. “There are few, if any, unobstructed waterfront sites available within minutes of everything and we wanted a timeless and exceptional internationally recognized style, expressing luxury and permanence and cladding that was environmentally conscience. The suites are larger than the micro suites found in the downtown core.

“We designed the buildings so that most suites experience the “wondrous beauty” of the natural landscape,” Di Lorenzo adds, “and that all the amenities starting on the 11th floor have stunning views of the lake and park. Suites do not start until the 12th floor which makes this exceptionally exclusive.”

Suites are currently priced from the high $300,000s. Occupancy is slated for January 2021.

Making dreams a reality

A home is a place of comfort where you can dream and plan your future. Where do you want to be in 10 years? What’s on your bucket list? What opportunities do you want for your children? A home is the place where stability allows these dreams to become reality.

In the past year, Lindvest has focused on what it does best: build homes. In that process they are helping new homeowners create the foundation on which to build their dreams. This job isn’t taken lightly. It’s the expert, thoughtful touches that Lindvest adds to its homes that set the company apart from the rest. The goal is to create homes that embody the Lindvest tagline: “Life Happens Here.”

Across the GTA and beyond, Lindvest has been busy building single detached homes, townhomes, and highrise living spaces, offering something for everyone whether they are just entering the market or looking to move to a larger home.

For instance, the single-detached homes of Spring Valley Junction have enabled new connections in Brampton, where this new community aimed to create the harmony of home, family and community. The fusion of traditional brick, combination brick and stone, and eye-catching contemporary designs are now the homes of families who saw their dream homes go from rendering to reality. Now they sit in front of natural gas fireplaces in their open interiors and wonder how they ever lived any other way.

CAPTION: The Brownstones at Westown

The Brownstones at Westown — located at Weston Road and Sheppard Avenue — offer modern stacked townhouse living, easily accessible by Toronto’s major highways. With construction completed on Phase I of the project, homeowners are now living in contemporary interiors of the one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans. Outside, the streets are lined with newly-planted trees — it’s easy to envision future generations playfully climbing them, dreaming of worlds beyond.

Further east, the rarefied dreams of Sonic and SuperSonic, Lindvest’s highrise project, are becoming a reality as ground has broken, making way for the buildings to reach the sky. Across the street, the Eglinton Crosstown LRT station is under construction and will be ready to whisk commuters across the city and beyond soon enough. Imagine experiencing soaring views of the city skyline as you enjoy dinner on a private balcony and discuss the itinerary of your next big vacation.

CAPTION: The Grove

Richmond Hill is home to a new community full of charm and sophistication: The Grove. Now sold out, this community is a perfect blend of thoughtful layouts and high-end detail — the pinnacle of style. These single-detached homes are what dreams are made of.

Over in Markham, the first phase of the Grand Cornell Brownstones are nearly completed. These unique stacked units use space to the maximum, where sleek, stylish interiors make a statement that is modern and sophisticated. From the outside, stylized details create a sense of depth making for impressive exteriors, the essence of curb appeal. Most units of the Grand Cornell Brownstones feature private patios, balconies or rooftop terraces that provide a personal experience with the outdoors. Dreaming big is simple when you have your own space to do it. The Grand Cornell Brownstones remind you — ain’t life grand?

For anyone with visions of living in the country, the community of Gracefields is a modern addition to the pastoral charm of the town of Newcastle. These bungalow to two-storey homes help families plant roots and lay the foundation for the future. Plus, the recently added community of Gracefields North means the spirit of Newcastle will be elevated even more. Just off Highway 401 but seemingly miles from the hustle and bustle, Newcastle is a gem in the country.

CAPTION: North Oakville

What’s happening in North Oakville? A lot. At Lindvest’s upcoming release, aptly called North Oakville, the future is looking towards contemporary and traditional elevations of 36-, 38-, 41-, 43- and 45-foot single-detached homes. The surrounding area is rife with new builds, making this growing community destined to be the next hotspot in Oakville. North Oakville will be located on the east side of Sixth Line, between Dundas and Burnhamthorpe.

CAPTION: Aurora Glen

The future will also see the final release of the Aurora Glen Townhomes, a project that continues to garner attention from near and far. As with the previous releases of Aurora Glen, these townhomes have the advantage of coming with a smart thermostat, intelligent locks and LED lighting that is not only budget-conscious but is safe on artwork. As the last major release for this project, the Aurora Glen Townhomes have the benefit of being surrounded by already-completed homes — the foundation of an existing community at your doorstep.

Want to know a secret? Aurora Glen has been keeping something close to its chest. It will be releasing 11 exclusive townhomes in a very special area of the Aurora Glen project, surrounded by nature. Known as The Enclave, this cache of best-in-class townhomes will spare no expense. Talk about dream homes!

Keep your ears to the ground as the official announcement of Lindvest’s next community is soon to come. This single family home community is located at Teston Road and Pine Valley Drive in Vaughan. Beautiful homes in a beautiful location — yet again, Lindvest is helping to make dreams a reality.

No dream is too big. You just need support and stability — and that’s where Lindvest comes in. So let your imagination run wild. Dream bold. Dream big. Let Lindvest take care of the rest.

Maker Spaces – Graywood Developments draws inspiration from Toronto’s Warehouse District for Peter & Adelaide

Maker Spaces – Graywood Developments draws inspiration from Toronto’s Warehouse District for Peter & Adelaide

47-storey tower adds to firm’s legacy of contextual design in the downtown core

A new landmark, mixed-use tower by Graywood Developments tightly knits together adjoining surface parking lots in Toronto’s Entertainment district, delivering contextual design and livability to one of Toronto’s most in-demand neighbourhoods.

Wrapping in and around three historic properties, Peter & Adelaide is a contemporary interpretation of the city’s old warehouses that dot the district. A tapestry of brick, metal, concrete and glass are woven into a 47-storey tower, which features frontages on both of the intersecting streets that make up the project’s name.

A compilation of volumes, masses and finishes, expertly crafted by BBB Architects, piece together a podium that steps up from three to six to 16-storeys along Adelaide. On Peter, the podium is pulled back at grade with the use of striking angled columns, enabling better sightlines on the historic buildings that bookend the property.

With significant attention paid to how Peter & Adelaide works at grade, the design team turned their attention to a series of brick, concrete and bronze framed openings that mass up from the podium at different volumes and extend beyond the roofline. The extended frames create a unique skyline presence, especially after dark when they are illuminated.

A new pedestrian mews will flank the project on Adelaide, offering public space that further connects with the midblock in behind 401 Richmond.

While the focus of the architecture centres on being a good neighbour, the interiors and landscape, handled by U31 Inc. and MBTW respectively, offer a singular experience for the Entertainment District. A spectacular outdoor amenity space on the 17th floor comes with a stylish rooftop swimming pool and reflection pool complete with the requisite cabanas and lounges needed to satiate a hot summer day spent by the water.

Additional common areas on the third floor offer two more outdoor spaces that complement the extensive amenity program.

A large gym has views over Adelaide Street to the south and an internal courtyard to the north, while a demonstration kitchen, oversized dining room and hotel-quality lounge offer ample opportunity for entertaining. Drawing inspiration from the creative industries that currently characterize the area, as well as the community’s routes in manufacturing, U31 Inc. added a communal work space and recreational hub to their design. Generously programmed homes come complete with quartz countertops and backsplash, integrated appliances and custom designed bathroom vanities.

Graywood’s ambition for the project was to develop a building that was recognizably made in Toronto. Drawing on the firm’s 30-years of experience developing marquee projects like Five Condos and the Ritz-Carlton, Graywood tasked its locally-sourced design team to channel the collective talents of a city that is two decades deep into an extensive urban transformation, capturing the emerging new Toronto design aesthetic.

Peter & Adelaide will offer everything from studios to three bedroom suites with pricing starting in the $300s. To register visit: http://peterandadelaide.com/.
