Carriage Gate introduces Gallery Condos + Lofts – an exciting new community

Picture yourself living in the heart of Burlington’s downtown core right across from City Hall at Gallery Condos + Lofts by Carriage Gate Homes. This exciting and vibrant community introduces Burlington’s most anticipated lifestyle opportunity.

Residents will be able to enjoy music, dance and theatre performances at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre and take in the exhibits at the Art Gallery of Burlington. They can walk to fine eateries and bistros, and stroll to Spencer Smith Park, with its scenic waterfront promenade. The park is the site of numerous events throughout the year – the Sound of Music Festival and Ribfest are just two of the many festivals that take place in beautiful downtown Burlington. The Brant St. Pier, extending 132 metres into Lake Ontario, provides breathtaking views of the lake and the city’s shoreline.

At Gallery Condos + Lofts, it’s the details that make the difference. The suites are modern with luxury finishes, open-concept layouts and chef style kitchens to bring together family and friends over the art of food. The custom cabinets, vanities, and quartz countertops add a sophisticated touch to the suites. The oversized terraces with barbecue connections in the tower suites maximize usable space, making them a pleasure to live in. Suites range in size from 500 to more than 1,600 sq. ft., with most of the tower units averaging a little less than 1,000 sq. ft.

“The soft lofts on the gallery level are a first for Burlington,” says Nick Carnicelli, president of Carriage Gate. They will feature soaring ceilings, barn style doors, and concrete accent walls. The master ensuites offer a one-of-a-kind four-piece spa experience. The signature feature places the tub in a five-by-five-ft. rain room which has been meticulously curated by award-winning Tomas Pearce Interior Design. There are units that will appeal to everyone from young buyers looking to buy their first home, to mature adults seeking to downsize, but who still want space for entertaining family and friends.

When it comes to a great lifestyle, you don’t have to venture far from your home at Gallery Condos + Lofts, thanks to an impressive list of onsite amenities, including a magnificent indoor pool, a private yoga room, fully-equipped fitness facilities, pet spa, party room with private dining area, and billiards lounge. From the top of the 22nd floor, residents and their guests will enjoy spectacular lake views in every direction from the rooftop oasis, with a fire feature, lounge areas, and barbecues for alfresco dining.

Burlington offers excellent value for buyers looking for urban amenities and a great location. Gallery Condos + Lofts has 159 units, with prices starting from the $400,000s to more than $1 million. Perfectly positioned at Brant and James St., the building is adding to the colourful palette of the downtown core with its pedestrian-friendly urban location. The wide streetscapes on three sides of the building offer the perfect place for plenty of new trees, street furniture and outdoor patio space. As the city of Burlington undergoes a revitalization, these streetscapes will go a long way to improve the downtown core, while still offering a quaint yet hip feel that residents will revel in.

Demolition is scheduled to start this summer, with an official groundbreaking for Gallery Condos + Lofts anticipated in the early fall, and move-ins projected for spring of 2021.

There is no doubt that the city exudes an electric vibe, a place full of life and energy, which Gallery Condos + Lofts is pleased to be right in the centre of.

Burlington – engaged in development

Burlington – engaged in development

Long gone are the days when Burlington, a city of about 185,000 off the northwestern shores of Lake Ontario, was a sleepy suburb on the outskirts of the GTA. Expansion in highway and transit infrastructure, economic and employment growth and new housing development are all contributing to what today is a booming, and self-sustaining, destination.

It’s all coming together nicely for Burlington. For some, perhaps, maybe a little too fast.

But more on that later.

Blessed location

Blessed with an outstanding natural location close to the lake, the QEW, Dundas Street West and Hwys. 403 and 401, getting to and around Burlington has never been a challenge. But recent improvements to transit service and highways have afforded even easier movement for businesses and residents.

Such growth has contributed to an increasingly diverse economy, strong in automotive and manufacturing, but not overly reliant on any one sector. Some of the city’s largest employers include Cogeco Cable, ARGO Land Development and the Joseph Brant Hospital.

Besides being close to Lake Ontario to the south, and the Niagara Escarpment to the north, Burlington is also home to the Royal Botanical Gardens. It boasts more than 2,700 acres of gardens and nature sanctuaries, the world’s largest lilac collection and three on-site restaurants.

Down by the lake, the recently renovated Spencer Smith Park hosts an array of annual free festivals, including Canada’s largest Ribfest, the Sound of Music Festival, Children’s Festival and Lakeside Festival of Lights.

Engaged in development

With so much in Burlington’s favour, it’s no surprise that more people are moving here – particularly those looking for more affordable homes than in Toronto. Indeed, it’s a nice compromise: Oakville to the east, is now one of the GTA’s priciest housing markets; Hamilton to the west, is more affordable but still considered an area in transition.

Nor should it come as a surprise that Burlington residents are engaged in their community development, and took the opportunity in the October 2018 municipal elections to vote for change. Journalist and city councillor Marianne Meed Ward became the city’s first female mayor since 1978, replacing two-term incumbent Rick Goldring.

“Burlington residents have consistently raised concerns about over-intensification and development in our city,” she said after officially taking over in December 2018. “During the election, they made their voices heard and clearly indicated the need to review the scale and intensity of planned development, especially in the new Official Plan.”

To that end, Meed Ward says she plans to take a close look at development, specifically in downtown, and has launched a Red Tape Red Carpet task force to address permitting and approvals. She also campaigned on tackling traffic congestion, tax reform, building trust with the community and protecting greenspace.

Carriage Gate’s Gallery Condos + Lofts in Burlington

Carriage Gate’s Gallery Condos + Lofts in Burlington

Burlington offers a lifestyle that’s hard to beat – a safe and friendly environment, beautiful Lake Ontario waterfront, festivals and community events, great shopping and restaurants, and a rich arts and cultural life. The charming, walkable downtown is undergoing a revitalization and is attracting new residential and mixed-use development. Carriage Gate will play a key role in the evolution of the downtown with four separate sites within a four-block radius. Gallery Condos+Lofts is their latest condominium project coming soon.

Comprising 161 art inspired suites, Gallery Condos+Lofts is situated directly across from city hall in the downtown core. With interior design by Tomas Pearce, the building will feature open-concept layouts, large balconies, gourmet chef style kitchens and loft units on the gallery level. The loft units will have features that are uniquely urban. Aside from the standard 10-foot high ceilings and barn doors, the lofts master ensuite offers a one-of-kind, four-piece spa bath. This signature feature places the tub in a 5′ x 5′ rain room which will add a unique touch to the spa like experience. “We are incorporating a lot of custom home features into our condo suites to bring added value to our customers,” says Nick Carnicelli, president of Carriage Gate.

The building will feature a fourstorey podium with a unique cutaway corner and wide streetscape for the public to enjoy. It will have a rooftop amenity with barbecues and fireplace feature for residents to enjoy the outdoors and admire the views. Other amenities include full fitness facilities, including a yoga studio with an outdoor stretching area, a heated indoor pool with an indoor/outdoor lounge area, multi-purpose party room, with bar and dining room. Residents will enjoy spectacular views every direction, including Lake Ontario to the south, the Niagara Escarpment to the north, Toronto to the east, Hamilton and the Burlington Skyway to the west.

Spencer Smith Park, located along the Burlington Waterfront, is home to many events and festivals throughout the year.

Gallery Condos +Lofts was inspired by Burlington’s vibrant local arts scene. “Carriage Gate is working with local artists and will feature their art throughout the building,” adds Carnicelli. The 22-storey building designed by Turner Fleischer Architects will create a contemporary landmark on the corner of Brant and James Street, while respecting the charm of the downtown. With suites ranging from 491 to 1,500 square feet, there are units that will appeal to everyone from young buyers looking to buy their first home, to mature adults seeking to downsize, but who still want space for entertaining family and friends.

Prices are in the $700 per square foot price range for a new Burlington condo, compared to over $1,000 per square foot for a new Toronto suite and will offer excellent value and amenities.

Residents will be able to enjoy music, dance and theatre performances at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, take in the exhibits at the Art Gallery of Burlington, walk to fine eateries and bistros, and stroll to Spencer Smith Park, with its scenic waterfront promenade. The park’s boardwalk is a favourite destination for dog walkers, joggers, cyclists or people who simply want to enjoy a leisurely walk and admire captivating views. The park is the site of numerous events throughout the year – the Sound of Music Festival and Ribfest are just two — and has expansive green space, a children’s playground and Waterjet Park. The Brant Street Pier, extending 132 metres into Lake Ontario, provides breathtaking views of the lake and the city’s shoreline. The downtown continues to transform with the arrival of entrepreneurs who are starting businesses there. With all the city has to offer, Money Sense magazine has named it the best mid-sized city in Canada for five years in a row and the second-best city in Ontario to live in.

Gallery Condos + Lofts will place residents in the cultural heart of downtown Burlington close to dining, shopping, cultural destinations and more.

The Berkeley hotel inspired condominium is now under construction in downtown Burlington with occupancy planned for later this year.
