Real estate firms raise more than $200,000 for COVID-19 relief

Update: As of Friday, May 8, the partners had reached the fundraising goal of $330,000.

Capital Developments and a number of other real estate companies are doing their part to provide COVID-19 relief to one very important Toronto cause – the Yonge Street Mission – the largest food bank in east downtown.

Now, they’re issuing a challenge to other firms to take part in the YSM Fundraiser Relay to help raise much-needed funds.

As Yonge Street Mission responds to the COVID-19 crisis, the agency has experienced unprecedented increases in food bank visits every week, resulting in a $330,000 shortfall.

Every week, YSM is facing a $30,000 shortfall – and growing weekly. To sustain YSM’s operations for the next 11 weeks, Capital Developments and other companies are challenging other organizations to join the #YSMRELAY and donate $30,000 to help reach the minimum goal of $330,000.

Real support

Besides Capital Developments, other real estate companies participating include Woodbourne Capital Management, EllisDon, Baker Real Estate and St. Thomas Development. Also on board are Sobeys and Donald K. Jackson Family Foundation.

Capital Developments kickstarted the campaign by donating $30,000 to cover the first week donation.

Over its 124-year history, YSM has tirelessly supported Toronto’s most vulnerable in the heart of the downtown. As the largest food bank in the Downtown East, the agency is facing a huge increase in demand for its services amidst social distancing and closure of nonessential services.

Like many of the most vulnerable in Toronto, clients who depend on YSM have been hit hardest by this global pandemic – and so many more now need their services.

The Mission has seen a 205-per-cent increase in food bank visits, many from first-time clients, and a 180-per-cent increase in the number of families and individuals fed since pre-COVID-19. YSM is spending $30,000 to $35,000 per week on groceries to meet the demand, compared to an annual food budget of $30,000.

Will your organization pass the baton for one week?

Thirty Six Zorra – Altree Developments and EllisDon Capital come together to set a new standard

Thirty-six storeys of colourful and contemporary condominium living – that’s the vision for Altree Developments‘ latest project with EllisDon Capital, Thirty Six Zorra, set to make its debut to Toronto’s Queensway in Etobicoke this fall. Encompassing a series of modern condominium suites ranging from 440 to 1,306 sq. ft., Thirty Six Zorra promises to expand the condominium offerings currently available within this rich Toronto locale, all while bringing a splash of colour to residents looking for the same lifestyle they know and love in the city.

Thirty Six Zorra invites you to get your colour on. This dynamic residence is positioned to provide a robust offering of more than 9,500 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor amenities, giving residents more than enough opportunities to express themselves and explore entertainment and ingenuity in their on- and off-hours. For those who like to stay close to home, Thirty Six Zorra will act as more of a lifestyle destination than just a residence.

For its indoor amenities, residents can choose from a series of offerings catering to any type of pastime, including a bright and spacious rec room with games and tabletop sports that will keep them on their toes in friendly competition. For options to work from home or host friends, a robust co-working space and social club are perfect for solo lounging or group gatherings. Offered alongside the location’s TV lounge and hobby room, residents of Thirty Six Zorra can also entertain their families in play in a fun-filled kids club, conveniently groom their pets in the pet wash area, or engage in an invigorating workout in the expansive gym and weight room. With its full demo kitchen, residents can also host exciting dinner parties with friends and family, all while surrounded by options for group seating or one-on-one dates.

The outdoor amenities are equally as engaging, featuring a luxurious rooftop pool with sun loungers and cabanas primed for relaxation, cosy fire pits, quaint barbecue dining areas, a vibrant on-site park, and a robust pet run for animal lovers. When they’re done basking in the sun and taking a dip in the pool, residents can head to any of the local parks in the area to enjoy Etobicoke’s many greenspaces and trails.

When it’s time to get out into the city for work or errands, residents of Thirty Six Zorra will also enjoy the benefits of a direct shuttlebus service to Kipling station offered in the morning and evening, for convenient and exclusive access to those living at this one-of-a-kind address. Known as a main artery between the downtown core and Toronto west, The Queensway provides high connectivity to downtown Toronto via local bus routes, as well as Islington and Kipling TTC stations and GO Transit. Prefer to drive? Get to downtown Toronto in 15 minutes with quick hop on the Gardiner Expressway.

Beyond its multitude of transit options, The Queensway is home to popular retail destinations such as Sherway Gardens Mall, IKEA, HomeSense, as well as local cafes, restaurants, and entertainment. Mainstays such as the local Cineplex Theatre and Bouldlerz Climbing Club offer faithful weekend activities within six minutes of Thirty Six Zorra. Other community hot spots include Tom’s Dairy Freeze, Sanremo Bakery, and California Sandwiches. A beacon for cyclists, runners, and park enthusiasts, Toronto’s expansive waterfront and Humber Bay are 10 minutes away by car.

Seasoned Torontonians or newcomers to the city will appreciate the lifestyle opportunity growing in Etobicoke. Thirty Six Zorra invites buyers to live larger when it comes to the financial perks of purchasing a suite in this burgeoning west end neighbourhood. That’s right: Residents get more square footage than their downtown neighbours while still reaping the many benefits of living in “the 416.” Etobicoke boasts prices of $850 per sq. ft., making costs for this area comparatively low against $1,200 per sq. ft. in the downtown core.

Backed by two of Canada’s leading highrise residential builders, third-generation developer Altree Developments and the visionary team at EllisDon Capital, Thirty Six Zorra is sure to be an iconic project, poised to set a new standard for The Queensway and Etobicoke living alike.
