Kingdom Developments breaks ground at KSquare Condos in Scarborough

Kingdom Developments Inc. has broken ground at its Canadian flagship, mixed-use condominium development, KSquare Condos, just a month after launching sales for the project.

“We’re thrilled with the opportunity to start construction just one month after our sales launch,” says Eric Jensen, Kingdom Developments’ vice-president, projects. “This speaks volumes to the success of KSquare Condos and the significant demand the project commands from both end-users and investors who recognize the incredible value and ownership opportunity that KSquare presents.”

KSquare Condos is located in the heart of central Scarborough at Kennedy Rd. and Sheppard Ave. E., an area currently experiencing a major transformation in new city planning and rapid development growth.

Major transformation

“As one of the first major developments in the city’s most dynamic neighbourhood, KSquare Condos is an exciting addition to Scarborough, an area that’s naturally poised for a residential density boost,” says Ward 22 Scarborough-Agincourt Councillor, Jim Karygiannis.

With more than 485,000 sq. ft. of planned development comprising of retail, office and mixed-use residential, KSquare presents a strong investment and ownership opportunity, the company says. Over the next decade, KSquare Condos is expected to kick-start rapid growth in population density and spur new job opportunities in this already fast-growing neighbourhood.

Across the rail corridor from KSquare, the City’s ambitious plans for Agincourt Mall will create retail and office jobs in a dynamic community of new shops, restaurants, cafes, offices, parks and a public square. With 10 million sq. ft. of office space, Scarborough has seen impressive job growth over the last decade, and is home to the head offices of top Fortune 500 companies including Toyota, IBM, Compaq, BMO, HSBC, Sony, Volvo and Lenovo.

‘Kennedy Central’

Dubbed “Kennedy Central,” this area between Kennedy Rd. and Hwy. 401, will soon benefit from improved planned transit service with the proposed $5-billion plan to build a three-stop subway extension in Scarborough with stops at Lawrence East, Scarborough Town Centre and McCowan Rd.

With the existing Agincourt GO station to the north and projected SmartTrack and Sheppard East LRT stations nearby, residents will be able to connect to downtown in minutes. Drivers will also appreciate easy access across the GTA via Hwy. 401, which is directly to the south of KSquare Condos.

Designed by IBI Group with interiors by Tomas Pearce Interior Design, KSquare Condos features two sleek, elegant glass towers rising 36 and 39 storeys above a shared seven-storey podium.

KSquare features a wide range of suite types and sizes including one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. Prices start from $372,900 and early buyers can also take advantage of a free parking space included in their purchase price.

“We have a really diverse group of condo units and sizes,” Jensen told Condo Life. “On the one end, we’ve got the students at (University of Toronto Scarborough) that are looking for a small one-bedroom, but at the other end of the spectrum, we’ve got a number of three-bedroom plus den corner units for full families.”

Signature amenities

KSquare will not only be home to Toronto’s largest private condo library and study area, residents will also have access to amenities such as two private music rehearsal rooms, state-of-the-art gym, pet grooming spa, kids zone, 24-hour concierge, an expansive party room with two dining areas and a rooftop terrace offering panoramic neighbourhood views.

“The real highlights are… the seventh-floor outdoor terrace is spectacular, it’s really like having a taste of a forest or High Park that you can just step out into,” Jensen says. “The private library is probably the crown jewel of them all. The versatility that this type of space offers… you can go there to study, there are breakout rooms, quiet spaces… it all ties into the library, and we’ve got moveable panels to open up spaces.”

“The lobby itself is very unique, if for no other reason than its size,” Brian Woodrow, senior designer, Tomas Pearce, told Condo Life. “It’s almost a full double height, has a fireplace lounge, a business/tech lounge, so its broken into two areas and its meant to draw people together in a work, live and communicative environment.”

Kingdom Developments gave Tomas Pearce the freedom to execute its ideas, Woodrow says. “They came to us with these ideas… I wouldn’t call them prerequisites because they gave us a free hand, which is very unusual, and allowed us to develop these thoughts and notions from our design standard point of view.”

The KSquare community will be surrounded by nature and greenspace. Bordering the building, South Linear Park boasts over half an acre of parkland and trails and the building’s grounds will also feature lush landscaping that will weave into a central courtyard to the east of the main entrance.

Register at ksquarecondos.com or visit the Presentation Gallery located at 2035 Kennedy Rd., open Monday to Thursday noon to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed Fridays.

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.
