M2M by Aoyuan International showcases new options for families living in condos

M2M by Aoyuan International, is an 8.6-acre master-planned community near Yonge and Finch subway designed to encourage a healthy urban lifestyle. When M2M is complete, it will be a fully-integrated live-work-play neighbourhood with 1,650 new residences, a community centre, a daycare, 180,000 sq. ft. of retail and office space, and a new public park. Aoyuan’s master plan and intelligently designed interior suite layouts provide a variety of living options for families in different stages of life.

Aoyuan has built a fully furnished three-bedroom model inside the M2M Presentation Centre. Showcasing a 1,101 sq. ft. corner unit with floor-to-ceiling windows with a 220 sq. ft. outdoor space, the model illustrates how M2M condo living doesn’t compromise on comfort and privacy typically found in single-family homes.

Model suite visitors will appreciate the walnut wood flooring, clean lines and gold accent detailing – finishes that reference the overall aesthetic of the development. Arriving at the suite, a spacious foyer sets a welcoming, family friendly tone. There is room for extra storage and benches to keep the assortment of hats, gloves, backpacks and after-school sports equipment under control, plus gallery walls for family photos.

The heart of the home, the kitchen features a thick Caesarstone countertop and island with waterfall edge on both ends, complemented by a beautiful white marble tile backsplash in Moroccan arabesque pattern. The kitchen includes integrated appliances, Kohler sink fixtures, and under-cabinet lighting, features that are standard in all of M2M’s T1 tower suites as per plans. Additional counter space pulls out from between the microwave and the dishwasher when needed – a smart, space-saving convenience.

The open-concept dining area features sculptural lighting set above a sleek wood table connecting the kitchen to the main living room. Bedrooms, thoughtfully located on opposite ends of this suite, maximize privacy and tranquility. This three-bedroom layout also includes two bathrooms, a walk-in laundry with a 27-inch efficient washer and dryer and storage closet, and optimizes access to natural light throughout.

A first for the condominium market in Toronto, Aoyuan is including electrochromic glass which comes standard with interior bedroom-suites, to provide a choice between clear glass and frosted privacy glass controlled by a wall switch. Marketed as M2M Switchable Smart Glass, visitors can experience this innovative feature at the touch of a switch.

Aoyuan caps off Phase 1 of Yonge-Finch development with new release of tower suites

Following the sold-out success of their initial launch in June, Aoyuan is now releasing brand new suites at M2M this fall. 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.

This tower will be the first of a new master-planned neighbourhood that will transform a dated shopping plaza and parking lot near Yonge and Finch subway into North York’s first true live-work-play community. Located 100 metres from Yonge and Finch subway and GO stations, the master plan includes five new residential condo towers, 180,000 square feet of office and retail, a daycare, community centre and new public park.

As part of Aoyuan’s emphasis on putting healthy living first, 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. Interconnected green spaces connect a wide range of suites from one-bedrooms to larger townhome units.

“We are very excited about the way the building is addressing the new park to the east,” says M2M’s architect Rudy Wallman. “Functionality and views from the suites were another key focus of the design. Balconies face the park while light-filled living spaces take advantage of views of an internal courtyard.”

Integrating natural elements with modern living, interior spaces have been thoughtfully designed by one of Toronto’s top interior design firms, Union 31. A grand two-storey residential lobby welcomes residents with natural materials infused with a blend of metallics and warm surfaces to create a serene Zen environment. Lobby features include oversized planters reflecting the natural outdoor landscape, a back-lit onyx reception desk, natural stone walls, warm wood ceilings and glamorous accents akin to a lush international hotel-style lobby.

“Aoyuan’s approach to creating healthy communities was central to the design, strongly influencing our use of natural materials and forms, and ensuring maximum access to natural light throughout the building,” says Kelly Cray, principal of U31 Design.

Inside the suites, custom kitchens were designed with highutility in mind and includes fully integrated appliances. Carefully thought-out kitchens maximize efficiency, with storage needs provided by walk-in closets in select units. Multiple finish options suit diverse personalities and tastes.

Aoyuan International unveils official plans for 8.6-acre Master Plan to Transform Shopping Plaza Site into North York’s First Complete Live-Work-Play Community

Bringing their broad lifestyle intelligence about real estate and the built environment to Toronto, Aoyuan International will transform a dated shopping plaza and parking lot near Yonge and Finch subway into North York’s first true live-work-play community. The Hong-Kong listed developer group is rebuilding the arterial site to become a complete mixed-use community and family-friendly destination for both residents and adjacent neighbours. As Aoyuan’s largest community in Canada to date, M2M‘s master plan includes five new residential condo towers, 180,000 square feet of office and retail, a daycare, community centre and new public park.

“M2M will become a new destination for North York – a residential community with rich retail and office space, framed by an active new public park on the east,” says Vince Santino, senior vice president — development (Eastern Canada), Aoyuan Property Holdings (Canada) Ltd. “With Aoyuan’s healthy lifestyle intelligence baked into the master plan, M2M Condos will bring resort-like amenities, and the conveniences typical of a downtown neighbourhood to North Toronto.

Phase I of the new development will include 810 residential units, 35,000 square feet of retail commercial space facing Yonge Street and 40,000 square feet of office. A daycare and community centre will be integrated into Phase II. A new east-west active laneway will connect the new public park to Yonge Street, facilitating access and programming 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.

Planned anchor tenants facing Yonge Street include a new corporate headquarters for Aoyuan, with a signature corner façade to mark their growing presence in Toronto. M2M is located approximately 150 metres from Yonge and Finch subway and GO stations, and will provide underground access to the future Yonge and Cummer subway stop.

Showcasing distinctive architecture by Toronto’s Wallman Architects, a series of geometric glass block forms frame the site with playful textures to differentiate different faces of the building. “We are very excited about the way the building is addressing the new park to the east. We had an opportunity to design a very open and engaging façade anchored by townhomes that have direct access to the street,” says Rudy Wallman. “Functionality and views from the suites were another key focus of the design. Balconies face the park while light-filled living spaces take advantage of views of an internal courtyard.”

Aoyuan Property Group to develop its largest project in Canada

Plans to redevelop Newtonbrook Plaza site backed by a robust portfolio of residential developments in China, Australia and Vancouver.

Aoyuan Property Group, a pioneer of mixed-use community developments in China, is now bringing their broad lifestyle intelligence to Toronto with the redevelopment of the 8.6-acre Newtonbrook Plaza site at Yonge Street and Finch Avenue.

Aoyuan’s acquisition of Newtonbrook Plaza was one of the largest real estate deals in Toronto in 2017.

Founded in 1996, Aoyuan was the first developer in China to integrate residential real estate with sport and recreation amenities. Their first sports-themed development, named Olympic Garden, was based on the idea that exercise and a healthy lifestyle started at home. The concept was celebrated by the International Olympics Committee, ushering in a new standard for residential communities in China.

Two decades later, the Hong Kong-based company has demonstrated their ongoing commitment to building healthy lifestyle communities with a current land bank of over 200 million square feet and 100 major residential and commercial properties in over 30 cities across China, Australia and Canada.

Aoyuan’s philosophy of healthy living has also expanded to the creation of six different business arms ranging from e-commerce to hospitality. Innovative projects include a mobile app that integrates e-commerce with property management, and a large-scale — and every kid’s dream — chocolate theme park.

“Aoyuan’s entry into Toronto is very exciting news for the development community, says Vince Santino, senior vice president, development (Eastern Canada), Aoyuan Property Holdings (Canada) Ltd. “Aoyuan brings a unique approach to the way we think about the built environment and real estate. Building healthy lifestyle communities was part of their DNA from the beginning,”

“Aoyuan knows real estate is not only about giving people a two- or three-bedroom unit. They have a corporate intelligence about the way people live, which gets baked into their master plans,” says Santino, who has 25 years of experience in Toronto’s real estate development industry.

The 8.6-acre Newtonbrook Plaza site at Yonge and Finch will be Aoyuan’s largest master-planned community in Canada. Plans include five residential towers, 180,000 square feet of office and retail space, as well as a daycare and community centre. The new community will be 100 metres from the Yonge and Finch TTC subway station and the Finch GO Transit station. A portion of the lands that is currently a parking lot will be transformed into a new park and playground. Aoyuan has also embraced the city’s desire to encourage larger suites for families of all shapes and sizes.

“The magnitude of what Aoyuan has accomplished is incredibly diverse and this gives them a very broad perspective,” says Josie Arcella, senior sales and marketing manager (Eastern Canada. “Aoyuan takes into consideration exactly how purchasers will be affected by every decision they make. Aoyuan’s designs are not based solely on global trends, but on the functionality of the entire community and what buyers really need.”

Fundamental to Aoyuan’s international success is their hyper-local on-the-ground approach. In every city, Aoyuan handpicks local talent who understand the development landscape and nuances of the local market. As a result, Aoyuan’s international portfolio is diverse and their projects are very successful with local purchasers.

“Aoyuan’s diverse business arms allowed them to develop a deep understanding of people’s lifestyles and behaviours and build a strong service-oriented approach to real estate development,” says Fan Yang, deputy general manager (Eastern Canada). “I am excited to be part of the local team that is bringing Aoyuan’s expertise to Toronto. The Newtonbrook Plaza site has all the right ingredients, and Aoyuan has what it takes to help make Toronto more liveable for families.”
