Lifetime Liberty Village news

Urban developer Lifetime Developments has launched the third and final phase of a 16-year historical redevelopment community in Toronto’s vibrant Liberty Village.

“It is incredible how this neighbourhood has grown and matured in relatively a short period of time,” says Brian Brown, principal at Lifetime. “It was actually one of the first redevelopment projects that I was involved with and I quickly became very personally invested in the changes and evolution that were occurring.”

Liberty Market Tower will be perched on top of the Liberty Market building, adding a new, dynamic mixed-use element to the neighborhood, accented by a distinctive art collaboration.

The company commissioned multidisciplinary celebrity artist Anthony Ricciardi to create murals and sculptures that will be integrated within the communal living environments, designed to inspire residents and complement the creative and artistic vibe of Liberty Village.

Liberty Market Tower will boast a distinctive 28-storey tower featuring 281 refined urban condominiums, ground floor retail and seven floors of office space featuring a we-work hub – all with connectivity to the existing Liberty Market building.

“We really focused on providing unique, curated amenities which strengthen community where your life and time matters,” says Kim Kopyl, director of sales and marketing.

More than 12,000 sq. ft. of indoor-outdoor amenity space make up the eighth floor of the building. Amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness facility, yoga room, contemporary games room, party room utilizing a recycled shipping container, elevating the industrial-chic design element used throughout, and al fresco dinning with barbecue-outdoor lounge areas and firepits, overlooking endless city skyline and lake views.

The tower will complete Lifetime Development’s six-acre Liberty Market Complex, the connection between the community’s thriving residential neighborhood and its ever-growing commercial district. Residents and visitors will both benefit from the convenient access to all of life’s necessities. From sports, entertainment, dining, work and play, to easy transit access such as the GO Train, subway and Billy Bishop airport. With everything at your fingertips, you truly are minutes to exactly where you want to be.

Markham is a hotbed of economic development and growth

Markham is a hotbed of economic development and growth

As the fourth most populous community in the GTA – after Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton – Markham has been a hotbed for economic growth and development for years.

It’s long been known as a centre for growing sectors such as technology and life sciences – and therefore employment growth – one of the key drivers of housing demand.

Today, Markham is home to more than 1,000 such companies, with IBM, Huawei, Honeywell, Advanced Micro Devices, Motorola and Oracle all having their Canadian headquarters located in the city.

Residence has its price

Buying a home in Markham will cost you, however, as it has also become one of the GTA’s most expensive housing markets.

According to the Royal LePage Home Price Index for the fourth quarter of 2019, aggregate home prices grew two per cent year-over-year to $951,228, condos grew 4.9 per cent to $486,898.

Still, new-home development is a priority for Markham City Hall and Mayor Frank Scarpitti, who was first elected in 2006 and is known as developer- and builder-friendly. The city has a number of new home developments underway, including some high-profile condo projects.

The revitalization of Downtown Markham has been spearheaded by The Remington Group’s multi-use development along Main Street, which includes expansive retail shops, a Marriott Hotel, a Cineplex, as well as a variety of condo buildings and townhomes.

Cultural diversity

Culture is also an important attraction in Markham, with The Flato Markham Theatre offering more than 300 live performances each year, showcasing the diversity of the city. In addition, Varley Art Gallery encompasses the historic Kathleen McKay House, which was the home of Group of the Seven’s Frederick Horsman Varley for the last 12 years of his life. Measuring 15,000 sq. ft., the gallery is the second most popular tourist attraction in York Region.

Markham also has dozens of parks with baseball diamonds, soccer pitches and children’s play areas and splash pads. The city also boasts more than 22 kms of scenic pathways with 12 bridges that provide recreational activity for joggers and cyclists.

The largest park in the city is the Milne Dam Conservation Park. Measuring 305 acres, it is bordered by thick forest on the south and east and the Rouge River runs through the middle.

Toogood Pond is an 82-acre park that features a partially naturalized pond and marsh, and it recently underwent revitalization to remove sediment, restore the shoreline and plant native foliage.

Getting around Markham is facilitated by easy access to Hwys. 404 and 407 and the DVP, and for public transit, York Region Transit/Viva connects with all nine York Region municipalities, and GO Transit provides regular train and bus service.

Population of 328,940, located in the Regional Municipality of York in the GTA.

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.

“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.

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.

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.”
