In Conversation With… David McComb, President & CEO Edenshaw Developments Ltd.

Edenshaw Developments prides itself on being a different kind of developer, applying philosophical statements such as “Artistic, Mindful, Natural” across everything it does.

And it shows, once you learn a little about the company’s latest signature project – Tanu, in the Port Credit area of Mississauga, Ont.

We spoke with President and CEO David McComb for further insights into Tanu and Edenshaw.

Condo Life: You must be pretty excited about your Tanu project, in the beautiful and improving Port Credit. How are things coming along there?

David McComb: Yes, we’re very excited to be delivering Tanu to Port Credit. Sales began in late winter of 2018, construction commenced in July of 2019, and occupancy is slated for spring of 2021 – things are moving along very well.

CL: Where does the name Tanu come from?

DM: From the island, Tanu, located in Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands), BC. It’s a beautiful, wildlife-rich place, with a temperate rainforest, and a collection of stunning totem poles carved by the Haida people. Having lived in BC for many years, I developed a deep fondness for Haida art and culture, and I knew the next condo I developed would bear the name Tanu, as a nod to this very special place and the people who inhabit it.

CL: What design features or amenities at Tanu speak to the area, neighbourhood or surrounding history?

DM: Our lead architect, Mansoor Kazerouni, from IBI Group, incorporated building materials and colours that complement the natural attributes of Port Credit, such as the abundant, tree-lined trails, the Credit River and Lake Ontario. For example, walnut-toned longboards on the exterior facade provide a sense of warmth and character that fit in well with the surrounding landscape. Our interior finishes, such as hardwood floors and natural stone countertops, were similarly inspired by these elements. On a historical note, during the late 1880s and early 1900s, Port Credit supplied much of shale stone for the construction of buildings in downtown Toronto.

CL: Port Credit is such a prized location, given its proximity to Lake Ontario, Credit River and highways. What else drew you to build Tanu here?

DM: I’ve been a resident of Port Credit for more than 20 years now, and one of the many things I really love about it is the sense of community. There’s a charming, village-like quality to Port Credit – it’s the sort of place where people greet each other on the street as they walk their dogs; and shop and restaurant owners know you by name. It’s also a wonderful place to raise a family. There are a lot of great schools here… parks, trails and year-round community festivals. You’re also just 20 minutes to downtown Toronto via the GO train.

CL: How did the project change as a result of community feedback during the planning process?

DM: There really weren’t many changes at all – we actively engaged the community and local stakeholders throughout our design and planning process, with the goal of delivering a building that would be strongly supported not only by the city’s planning staff, but also by the residents of Port Credit. An interesting note, however, was the comment by some residents that our suite areas we too large, but our sales performance has proved our assumptions correct.

CL: What is Edenshaw doing to address the challenges facing homebuyers – namely affordability?

DM: Edenshaw has proactively engaged the City of Mississauga to identify opportunities to deliver affordable units within our new developments. In Tanu, for example, we designated two units that meet the criteria for affordable housing guidelines, which we sold to a local school teacher and young man who grew up in the area, but never thought he’d ever be able to afford to move back.

CL: How is Edenshaw changing its approach – for example, to location selection, housing type, size and pricing – as a result of the ongoing issues and challenges in the homebuilding industry?

DM: The industry has been facing numerous obstacles in supplying affordable housing, as rising construction costs and development taxes make it very challenging to bring new projects to market. The GTA, especially, is in desperate need of purpose-built rental buildings, however, extremely high land and construction costs, coupled with rent control policies, have made it more feasible for developers to build condominiums instead of apartment buildings. Edenshaw changed its approach of building only condominiums in 2012, when we developed a strategic partnership with Sunlife to design and build purpose-built rental housing in Toronto. At the time, Edenshaw was one of the few developers in the GTA building purpose-built rental product. The result was Alto, a six-storey, LEED Silver Certified apartment building located on Dundas Street in Toronto’s Little Portugal neighbourhood. The project was a tremendous success and winner of the FRPO’s Rental Development of the Year, in 2016. Notably, Alto was also Toronto’s first 100 per cent smoke-free building.

We also make a point of selecting sites that are located within vibrant communities and in proximity to high-order public transit. Many of our current and upcoming developments are along the forthcoming Mississauga Light Rail Transit Hub and the Port Credit GO station, which is a real draw to people who are getting priced out of Toronto – you’re just a 20-minute GO train ride downtown, yet the price per square foot for a condo in Port Credit is hovering around where downtown Toronto pricing was almost a decade ago!

CL: What’s next for Edenshaw, after Tanu?

DM: We have several new and exciting projects in the pipeline. This year, we’ll be launching two projects adjacent to the Port Credit Mobility Hub and GO station, and a further development about a 10-minute walk to the Cooksville GO station and a couple of LRT stops to Square One Shopping Mall and Mississauga City Centre.

Enjoy shopping online? An automated parcel delivery system ensures residents always know when their package arrives via a mobile notification, and a refrigerated cold storage means that grocery and meal kit deliveries are just as fresh when they’re picked up as when they were delivered.

These features are offered in concert with a building-wide wireless Internet service and a 24-hour concierge, which ensure residents are always connected, no matter where they are.

With a long-standing history as an industry leader and innovator, Edenshaw is proud to offer these amenities at TANU, one of the first smart-home technology incorporated developments in the Port Credit area.

More than just housing, Edenshaw builds spaces that on-the-go residents can truly call home, through a range of conveniences and amenities that make life both simpler and more relaxing.

Edenshaw Elevated further advances TANU’s idyllic scenery and quiet surroundings, offering residents a sanctuary by the water just minutes from downtown Port Credit. TANU is just steps from the Lake Ontario and the Credit River, and offers access to parks, riverside walking and biking trails. As a further advantage, residents are only four-minutes’ walking distance from the Port Credit GO Mobility Hub, where they can hop on a train and arrive in downtown Toronto in just 20 minutes. Drivers also have quick access to the QEW and can be in the heart of the city in no time.

TANU is completed by a range of hotel-style amenities, including a guest suite, fitness centre, yoga studio, and a private dining room and game lounge.

Construction is now underway, with occupancy slated for early spring 2021.

TANU is a carefully shaped residence that speaks of quality and craftsmanship

TANU is a carefully shaped residence that speaks of quality and craftsmanship

Living in Port Credit is like being part of a small town but with all the perks of the big city. Just a 22-minute GO Train ride to downtown Toronto, Port Credit Village is a lakeside oasis full of small shops, intimate restaurants and historic charm. With Toronto and Mississauga continuously booming, it’s rare to find a place so close by that still possesses a strong sense of community and belonging to its guests and inhabitants. Residents say Port Credit is their forever home, and many generations of families live within blocks of one another.

Local developer, Edenshaw, has created a new address in Port Credit for those looking to join the village on the water with their bespoke condos and townhouses at TANU, a 15-storey residence on Park Street designed by award-wining architecture and design firms, IBI Group and TACT Design. The friendly, small-town ambiance of Port Credit inspires this carefully shaped residence that speaks of quality and craftsmanship. TANU also offers proximity to both Lake Ontario and the Credit River, lush parks and trails, and is just a five-minute walk to the GO Train, MiWay and the planned Hurontario LRT at the adjacent Mobility Hub.

What makes Port Credit so special? The picturesque waterfront has marinas, parks and trails that invite residents to walk, bike, run or stroll year-round. And despite its small-town character, Port Credit certainly isn’t sleepy. There are more than 60 restaurants offering fare from gourmet pizza and burritos to seafood and raw food. Known and respected as home to one of Canada’s most successful main streets, Port Credit boasts over 400 unique retail shops, boutiques, and services. This “Village on the Lake” is hailed as Mississauga’s premier cultural, entertainment, and culinary district due to its array of eateries and award-winning festivals and events.

While residents of Port Credit – and soon-to-be homeowners at TANU – can look forward to summers at the harbourfront patios and holiday shopping down Lakeshore Road in the winter, perhaps the most attractive quality of the township is the abiding sense of community one experiences from shopowners who know their customers by name, friendly neighbours walking their dogs, or the familiar running clubs coming down the trails. David McComb, Edenshaw’s CEO, is a long-time resident of Port Credit himself, and is dedicated to ensuring this exceptional community continues to flourish.

Can’t-miss Port Credit events this summer 2019:

  • Farmer’s Market – Saturdays from June to October 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.;

COVER STORY: TANU

TANU condo providing an ‘elevated’ experience

Latest News


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.
