TANU condo providing an ‘elevated’ experience

TANU condo providing an ‘elevated’ experience

While TANU is getting ready for its grand opening on Feb. 9, 2019, its developer, Edenshaw, is putting the finishing touches on a new program that will put TANU in a class of its own. Introducing Edenshaw Elevated, a comprehensive collection of inclusions aimed at making life easier and bringing the Edenshaw residential experience into the high-tech, high-connectivity reality of modern living.

Edenshaw Elevated lets you access key functionality of your home from anywhere in the world. You can monitor your visitors with live, one-way video from the lobby or parking garage, control your thermostat, security system and lighting, check the weather, get building updates and notifications and book facilities all through your smartphone or in-suite wall panel. You’ll receive instant notifications when your door is locked or unlocked for extra protection and security. But that’s not all!

You’ll enjoy high-speed, unlimited data within your suite and throughout the building, all conveniently included in your monthly maintenance fee. You’ll never miss a package again! You’ll receive instant notifications that your parcel has arrived where it will be housed until you pick it up.

The extra conveniences continue into your suite. Forget about providing keys for the key people in your world. With a digital door lock you can unlock your front door with a distinct access code. You can create additional access codes for house-cleaners, dog walkers, family, friends or guests so they can come and go freely.

When it comes to parking in the underground garage, no need to fumble for your access fob. Your car license plate will automatically trigger entry into the parking garage. Plus, with the ability to pre-register guest parking, it’s easy for your visitors to park hassle free. And for people with hybrid or fully electric vehicles, select underground parking spaces will be equipped with electric vehicle plugs. You’ll also enjoy the convenience of weather protected bicycle storage, energy-saving motion detector lighting and a convenient water-efficient car wash station.

One of the most convenient aspects of Edenshaw Elevated is the ability to gain entry to all of TANU’s amenities simply by carrying your smartphone. An app loaded onto your phone will get you anywhere you want to go!

But TANU is more than cutting-edge convenience – it’s resource savings, too! From low-flow toilets, to water saving aerators on taps and shower heads, you’ll save on costs while helping protect precious water resources.

Separate hydro and water metering for each suite, ensures that you’ll pay only for the hydro you use. Energy efficient light bulbs (in-suite and throughout the building) consume significantly less energy than traditional bulbs and last a lot longer.

TANU will be a LEED certified candidate. It will also utilize ERV (an energy recovery ventilator system) that recovers heat and recuperates the energy trapped in moisture, which greatly improves the overall recovery efficiency. With tri-cycle sorters on every floor (garbage, recyclables and organic waste), residents can rest easy knowing they are doing their bit for the environment.

Undoubtedly, Edenshaw Elevated is adding incredible convenience and value to TANU. This, coupled with robust building amenities, will make TANU one of the best places to live in the GTA. Residents will have access to a fully-equipped fitness centre with facilities for cardio, yoga and Pilates, a gorgeous resident’s private dining room and lounge, a games room, stunning outdoor terrace and a welcoming lobby with 24-hour concierge services.

TANU’s Grand Opening is scheduled for Feb. 9, 2019. The public is invited to attend the Edenshaw Experience Centre, located at 72 Lakeshore Rd. E. in Port Credit. Here, you’ll be able to view a huge scale model of TANU, as well as the many floorplan configurations available and experience the beautiful finishes displayed in a variety of vignettes.

Come to the Grand Opening to learn more about this incredible condominium opportunity in Port Credit Village.

Visit the Edenshaw Experience Centre, located at 72 Lakeshore Rd. E. in Port Credit. The Grand Opening is Feb. 9, 2019. The Experience Centre will be open from noon to 5 p.m. Monday to Thursday and weekends; closed Fridays.

Sugar Wharf by Menkes a well-connected waterfront community

Bitter winds and harsh climates are an inescapable fact of Canadian living. And when the cold is a predominate part of life, connectivity becomes a much sought-after luxury. Perhaps more than ever before, people are looking to invest in communities where everything they need comes with convenience – sans slush and cutting wind.

Enter Toronto’s indoor PATH pedestrian system – the world’s largest underground shopping complex. On cold winter days you can walk to work, do your banking, visit the doctor and even see a movie without ever having to set foot outside.

This 30-kilometre network includes 1,200 shops and services, restaurants, and endless entertainment; the epitome of convenient urban living. The PATH is truly the heart of Toronto’s financial and entertainment districts, with connections to 80 buildings, six downtown subway stations, 9 hotels and direct access to the Scotiabank Arena, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto Eaton Centre shopping centre, and CN Tower.

As Toronto continues to thrive, its global appeal is helping it attract more than 100,000 new residents per year, and many of these people want to work and live downtown. Given this rapid growth, it’s no wonder that the world’s largest underground city is about to get even bigger as well. As part of the new Sugar Wharf community by Menkes, the PATH network is set to expand east of Yonge Street, into the emerging Waterfront Innovation District.

Outdoor Terrace

Menkes is reimagining Toronto’s Waterfront with Sugar Wharf Condominiums, part of an 11.5-acre community that will include luxury residences, offices, restaurants and shops, a two-acre park, and new school. Once complete, Sugar Wharf will be the largest mixed-use development on the Toronto Waterfront; home to 7,500 residents and 4,000 office workers.

Party Room

The comprehensive project aims to seamlessly connect residents and office workers to all parts of the downtown core through the PATH, adding to the 5,000 people who already work in the PATH and more than 200,000 commuters that pass through it daily. The PATH also provides access to Union Station, with connections to the TTC subway, GO Train, Via Rail, and the UP (Union Pearson) Express.

Hammock Room

Residents living at Sugar Wharf on the PATH will be able to take advantage of the UP Express to travel to Pearson International Airport in a quick 25-minute ride. Traveling to your dream tropical destination during the winter months will be easier than ever before. Imagine being able to wear shorts and a t-shirt from home right up until the moment you board your flight without ever putting on your 10-pound winter jacket!

Lobby

With Sugar Wharf’s PATH extension, it will be possible to walk indoors from the waterfront, all the way to Toronto’s world class Financial District. Equally connected to the city as it is to nature, Sugar Wharf will revolutionize how Torontonians live, work and play.

SUGAR WHARF’S WALKING HIGHLIGHTS

CIBC Square: 7 minutes

Union Station: 11 minutes

Scotiabank Arena: 13 minutes

COVER STORY: Playground Condominiums at Garrison Point

Part of a vibrant mixed use King West community from Cityzen, Fernbrook and Greybrook, residents will have a four-acre park at their doorstep

Playground Condominiums at Garrison Point couldn’t be more aptly named. Not only will residents have a signature four-acre public park on their doorstep, they’ll be able to live, work and play in the trendy King West and Liberty Village neighbourhoods that Garrison Point abuts.

Thanks to the spectacular new Garrison Crossing pedestrian/cycle bridge to open this fall, they’ll enjoy connections to the waterfront and Coronation Park to the south, Stanley and Trinity Bellwoods Parks to the north, and Fort York to the west. Playground Condominiums is part of an exciting new mixed-use community from Cityzen Development Group, Fernbrook Homes and Greybrook Realty Partners, on Ordnance Street just east of Strachan Avenue.

The 35-storey tower is under construction, with first occupancies slated for summer of 2019. The Garrison Point site was originally a landlocked industrial triangle separated from the surrounding neighbourhoods by rail lines. Cityzen and its development partners acquired the site from Build Toronto, an agency that manages the City of Toronto’s real estate assets.

“What turned me on to this location was it was always close to Liberty Village on the other side of Strachan, and on the doorstep of King West and the waterfront,” says Sam Crignano, president of Cityzen Development Group. “That’s the beauty of this site. It’s on the fringe of all these neighbourhoods.”

Garrison Crossing, built as two bridges over the rail corridor south of King St. and Liberty Village, will provide links between those neighbourhoods. It’s the first stainless steel structure of its kind in Canada and in North America. It creates an interesting visual response with its spans that arch in opposite directions.

At Crignano’s suggestion for a solution that would yield the best design at the lowest cost, the city opted for a non-traditional Design-Build approach to get the bridge built. The Design-Build model uses private sector expertise to get large public infrastructure projects off the ground; the Dufferin Construction Company team won the contract to design and build the bridge.

The new park at the base of Playground will provide much-needed greenspace in this area of the city. Residents of the towers or those from the adjacent neighbourhoods can relax, recharge or socialize in the four-acre expanse of green, or use Garrison Crossing to venture to the other nearby parks. “Our architects (Hariri Pontarini) recognized the importance of being on the park and did everything they could to maximize access and views,” says Crignano. “They did an awesome job and people who live in the towers will have a bird’s eye view. There are amazing views of city skyline from the west, looking out over the rail corridor. There are unobstructed views towards the east and south to the lake and of Fort York.” The stylish glass and steel highrise features distinctive modern architecture and curvilinear accents.

Residents will have direct access to the park through Playground and from a pedestrian walkway between two towers leading to the park and Liberty Village beyond. Those who purchased ground floor townhouses will front directly onto the park. Playground residents will have plenty of ‘play’ opportunities in their own building, with desirable amenities such as a fitness centre and spa, residents’ lounge, party room, children’s lounge, home theatre, outdoor pool and terrace with barbecues and fire feature.

Units range from 350 to 1,000-plus square feet, priced from the $300,000s to the high $800,000s. Suites include studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedroom layout with or without dens. Amenities include a fitness centre with spa, resident’s lounge, party room, children’s lounge, home theatre, and outdoor pool with barbecue.

Garrison Crossing is a pedestrian and cycle bridge built over the railways that run south of King Street and Liberty Village. The bridge is the first ever stainless steel structure of its kind in North America. Designed as two bridges, with spans that arch in opposite directions for a dynamic visual experience, the bridge will allow pedestrians and cyclists to access Fort York to the west, the waterfront to the south.and South Stanley Park Extension to the north, as well as the future Ordnance Park.

Solmar Developments prepares to launch Tower 2 of Edge Towers

With the successful sale of Edge Towers, Solmar Developments is beginning construction of Tower 1, the first of three Towers that are zoned to be built on the strategically located property that is just steps south of Burnamthorpe Road and Hurontario Street, in Mississauga.

And as construction begins on Tower 1, Solmar Developments is preparing to launch the sale of Edge Tower 2. The 40-storey Edge T2 will set a new standard in elegant living in Mississauga.

Being just steps from Square One and shops like Holt Renfrew, Armani, Hugo Boss, Gucci, and the Rolex Boutique, Edge T2 is set to be an exciting place to live. The Living Arts Centre, Celebration Square, the Hazel McCallion Campus of Sheridan College, Wholefoods, Chapters, Earls Restaurant, and Bier Market are also close by.

With the new LRT at their doorstep, future residents of Edge T2 will have easy access to travel locally, or the opportunity to take an express trip to Union Station, Pearson Airport, or anywhere else in the GTA, on the Metrolinx transportation network.

For those who prefer to drive, access to highways 403, 401, 407, 410 and QEW could not be more convenient. “There is a huge difference in value being located in a prime location right on the main public transportation system versus being a 10-minute drive west, down the highway,” says Scott Davie, the listing Broker of Edge Towers.

In addition to location, value is determined by a number of factors, and Solmar considers the quality of the finishes to be one of the most important ways to define value. The first impression at Edge T2 begins in the elegantly appointed lobby, with its marble finishings and hand crafted, Venetian plaster columns.

It is the gateway to the timeless elegance theme that defines the style of Edge Towers, the timeless elegance that Solmar is known for.

The luxury condominium lifestyle means that the Concierge will be available 24/7, and amenities include the use of the state-of-the-art gym, yoga studio, Wi-Fi lounge, movie theatre, billiards room, guest suites, and the party room with a walk out to an amazing terrace with a fire feature and barbecues.

Edge T2 was designed by the award winning Rosario “Roy” Varacalli, of Cusamano Architects. The Solmar team worked closely with the architect and, recognizing the changing needs of the market, has designed even more efficient suites, with typical sizes ranging from 493 to 721 square feet.

Edge T2 will include 424 one-bedroom, one plus den, and two-bedroom suites. Quality is defined by the level of the workmanship, and the level of the finishes, in the suites. Suite finishes include 9 foot smooth ceilings, fully integrated or stainless steel, superior quality, kitchen appliances, separate showers with frameless glass doors, and premium plank laminate flooring.

Solmar Developments is a traditional Italian builder that has taken a special pride in delivering the highest quality residential highrise, lowrise, and commercial projects across southern Ontario, over the last 30 years.

Choosing the right developer can make a big difference in quality, customer service, and future resale value. Savvy new condominium buyers recognize that the key elements that will lead to a making a successful decision when buying a new condominium are:

  • Superior location;
  • Proximity to public transit, local amenities, and highways;
  • Fine quality finishes and workmanship from a reputable and experienced builder;
  • Attractive building and floor plan designs; and
  • A full range of luxury amenities.

Today, the majority of Ontario residents count the equity in their home as their biggest source of their wealth. Real Estate is the gateway to personal wealth for the majority of people. Now more than ever, consumers have to make the right choice, not only to buy, but which property to buy.

Tridel’s Luxurious Addition to the Annex

The Annex is one of Toronto’s oldest and most charismatic neighbourhoods. Endearingly known for its industrial roots, the northern border of Dupont Street is about to undergo an exciting transformation from its former factory glory, into the city’s newest urban destination for arts, food and entertainment.

Tridel’s Bianca will be the first residential condominium to arrive along this coveted Annex corridor. The luxurious midrise building will bring renewed poise to this rejuvenated stretch of Toronto’s downtown, dubbed ‘The New Dupont’.

Located on Dupont, west of Spadina at Howland Avenue, the luminous nine-storey residence is designed to make a profound architectural statement. The distinctive white façade and gently sloping exterior of expansive terraces and balconies are the hallmark of Teeple Architects’ design for Bianca.

“Bianca is truly one of a kind, with spacious suites and distinctive architecture,” says Jim Ritchie, executive vice president, sales and marketing at Tridel. “This is a unique opportunity to live in a luxury condo residence in the coveted Annex neighbourhood, while still having private outdoor space to entertain or simply relax.”

The generous outdoor spaces at Bianca offer residents extended living space, inviting the opportunity to grow fresh plants and herbs, relax and unwind for some private leisure time, or host an afternoon barbecue to enjoy time with friends and family.

Bianca offers suite collections in a variety of thoughtfully conceived layouts. Open concept living and dining spaces flow out onto terraces and balconies with views of Casa Loma to the northeast and the downtown skyline to the south.

For those seeking large suites with both indulgence and privacy, Bianca’s Terrace Collection includes exclusive luxurious north-facing suites. These expansive residences are available in two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den and three-bedroom layouts that overlook the community’s private landscaped courtyards.

Beginning from 1,015 square feet, these coveted suites are priced starting from $1 million, include a parking space, and boast luxury finishes such as Miele appliances, a natural stone or quartz waterfall island, and plank engineered flooring.

Bianca’s stunningly rich interiors and sophisticated, urban amenity spaces have been artfully crafted by the award-winning designers at II by IV Design. Bianca will boast a striking rooftop terrace with panoramic views of downtown and Casa Loma, complete with an outdoor pool, cabanas, barbecues and an outdoor fireplace lounge. Indoors, Bianca has a welcoming two-storey lobby with fireplace lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness centre with yoga and stretching studio, and is also home to multi-function entertainment spaces including a sophisticated European-inspired party lounge and bar, and an elegant private dining room.

“Rich with robust lifestyle options, the Annex and Dupont Street have an exciting, vibrant energy that Bianca residents will enjoy,” says Jim Ritchie. “The introduction of new residential condominiums coupled with the lively, eclectic mix of cultural hotspots and community green spaces make ‘The New Dupont’ an attractive choice for everyone.”

Inarguably, one of the area’s biggest draws is the growing restaurant scene along Dupont. The street is home to a seemingly endless choice of popular eateries including French brasseries, Italian ristorantes, Mexican cantinas, burger joints and other grab ‘n’ go options for local foodies.

The Annex also features an exciting list of high-end shops, heritage buildings, art galleries and cultural escapes such as Artscape Wychwood Barns, Casa Loma, and the Royal Ontario Museum. Additionally, the area is home to an inviting expanse of greenspaces and parks for the enjoyment of Annex pedestrians.

Visit the Presentation Centre, located at 408 Dupont Street. The Presentation Centre is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and from noon to 6 p.m. weekends; closed Friday. For further information visit the website.

Pratt Homes addresses pent-up demand for new freehold homes and condos in Barrie

It was a long time coming in Barrie, and Pratt Homes has addressed the pent-up demand for new freehold homes and condos by launching sales at Bear Creek Ridge in October 2017. This new family neighbourhood is located at the corner of Salem and Essa Roads, in the southwest section of Barrie.

Phase 1 freehold detached homes and towns are 90 per cent sold. Phase 1 condos have had a fantastic reception, and are approximately 40 per cent sold. The phase 2 release saw another large portion of homes snatched up buy purchasers. It’s safe to say, purchasers are very enthusiastic about the Barrie new home market.

Why buy in Barrie? The prices are substantially lower than the GTA, the deposit structure is substantially lower for the majority of builders in Ontario, the sizes of the homes are far greater for what you pay than anything south of Barrie, plus the lifestyle is incredible.

Towns start from the mid-$400,000s; detached from the low-$600,000s; and condos from the mid $200,000s. Compare that with GTA prices, and the value is incredible.

Pratt Homes offers deposit structures unlike anything you’ve seen in the GTA. For towns and condos, simply pay $1,000 on signing; $4,000 in 30 days; $5,000 in 60 days; $5,000 in 90 days; $5,000 in 120 days; and $5,000 in 150 days. For detached homes and classic towns, pay $5,000 on signing; $5,000 in 30 days; $10,000 in 60 days; $10,000 in 90 days; and $10,000 in 120 days.

Condominium bachelor/bachelorette suites range in size up to a 1,454-square-foot three-bedroom, two bath layout. Enjoy secure underground parking and balconies that enable barbecuing. Metro Towns (with garages) and Euro Towns (with European-style carports) are all three storeys, have two- and three-bedroom options with dens, private balconies, and are fully above ground. Fully detached homes range in size from 1,900 to 3,000 square feet.

This location is sensational. Residents will live around the corner from the Holly Recreation Centre, which has ice rinks, pools, gyms and a full schedule of activities. The community is also a 10-minute drive to the downtown core, where residents can enjoy an eclectic selection of restaurants and nightlife. Four swimmable beaches with walking trails along the waterfront beckon with opportunities to commune with nature. Plus, the GO station makes it convenient for commuters to get to their destinations from downtown.

Southwest Barrie is a mere 45 minutes to the Greater Toronto Area, and is a similar distance north to skiing at Blue Mountain in Collingwood, Muskoka’s cottage country, and the largest freshwater beach in the world at Wasaga Beach. In addition, avid golfers know the Barrie area for some of the best courses anywhere.

The new phase 3 release is early February 2018 and will include additional 29-foot detached homes, the more affordable Metro and Euro Town collection and the coveted and ever desirable Classic Towns with 9-foot ceilings, a garage and private backyards!

At Bear Creek Ridge, Pratt Homes is offering completely new designs featuring dynamic exteriors that range in style from traditional to modern, and even hybrid, for distinctive streetscapes. The Bear Creek Ridge Community will be unlike any other neighbourhood in Simcoe County.

Pratt Homes has been building fine new residential communities in Barrie for six generations, since 1890. Over the past few months, Pratt Homes developed and released its new brand evolution from “Barrie’s Largest Builder since 1890” to designing homes and neighbourhoods with the stages of family life cycles in mind, paying meticulous attention to beauty and functionality as well as ensuring they offer a home size for every stage of the family life cycle.

In addition, Pratt Homes offers Ontario’s first virtual reality Model Home tours inside the Bear Creek Ridge Office. The Virtual Reality experience gives you the opportunity to walk through and get a feeling for your new home instead of just seeing a blackline drawing.

The Bear Creek Sales Office will be opening Saturday, February 10th, 2018. Visit the Bear Creek Ridge Sales Office, located at 241 Essa Road, Unit 3 in Barrie, just off Highway 400. The Sales Office is open from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and from noon to 5 p.m. weekends and holidays.

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.
