The Well: Tridel introduces Toronto’s most anticipated lifestyle opportunity

The Well is one of the most ambitious mixed-used endeavors in Canada, a bold reflection of Toronto’s energy and diversity and an extension of the urban vibrancy of King West. Bordering Front, Spadina and Wellington, The Well brings a unique mix of shops, restaurants, fresh food markets, work spaces and residences, spanning seven acres and three million sq. ft. of culture, entertainment and community in downtown Toronto’s west side.

With construction of the transformative community already well under way, Tridel, a leader in condominium living, is preparing to launch one of the most anticipated condominium lifestyle opportunities in the city, in just a few weeks.

“The Well is a choreographed mix of urban experiences, dynamic architecture and interconnected public spaces. There is simply no other development that offers this breadth and scale of integrated uses,” says Jim Ritchie, executive vice-president, sales and marketing at Tridel. “Residents will experience the full spectrum of urban living without needing to leave the community. And when they do leave, they’ll find themselves in the middle of one of Toronto’s most dynamic and energetic neighbourhoods.”

The condominiums by Tridel at The Well will offer residents two distinct living opportunities. The Classic Series I and II consists of two towers along Front Street at 38 storeys and 22 storeys, respectively. A boutique 14-storey midrise known as the Signature Series will be located along the revitalized and historic Wellington Street. Each of the three buildings will feature Tridel’s unwavering commitment to quality and sustainability, as well as its own independent amenity spaces, including party rooms, outdoor terraces with pools, fitness centres and more.

With a pedestrian-centric focus, Tridel at The Well sets the stage for incredible experiences and responds to some of the strongest desires of downtown Toronto today: Walkability, community-building, the ability to create connections while seamlessly blending old and new. More than a collection of buildings, The Well is an amenity-rich, urban streetscape and a vital, fully functioning environment that puts the things people want most within easy reach. Perfectly situated between King West and the Entertainment District, Tridel at The Well offers established connections to public transit, airports, trains, buses and highways.

The highly anticipated launch of Tridel at The Well will include 400 suites in Classic Series I, the first of Tridel’s two urban condominium towers on Front Street, and 98 suites in the Signature Series boutique residence on Wellington.

M2M Condos – Aoyuan International’s master-planned community wins the BILD People’s Choice Award

M2M Condos – Aoyuan International’s master-planned community wins the BILD People’s Choice Award

While far from its first real estate development on a global scale, M2M is Aoyuan International‘s initial project in Toronto, as well as its most ambitious to date. Planning for the multi-faceted community project first started in 2017, when Aoyuan International acquired the Newtonbrook Plaza and began to lay out plans for its largest residential complex in Canada.

When completed, the 8.6-acre master-planned community at Yonge and Finch in North York will be a fully integrated neighbourhood designed for living, working, and playing. Featuring five towers and two podiums, M2M’s all-encompassing community will be home to a total of 1,650 residential units, as well as hundreds of thousands of square feet of office and retail space, a community centre, children’s daycare, and even its own greenspace for a future park.

The Aoyuan International team is thrilled to have received the BILD People’s Choice Award at the 39th annual BILD Awards on May 3, where the award was presented by the Building Industry and Land Development Association.

The BILD Awards are an annual event held to highlight new real estate projects that standout taking place in the greater Toronto area and to celebrate “excellence in the GTA’s land development and new home industry,” With awards that recognize distinction in everything from marketing and sales to project design, BILD aims to recognize the myriad hard-working people behind the hundreds of new communities that appear on the market every year.

Aoyuan International shares the People’s Choice Award with key strategic partners who are equally responsible for M2M’s success, including Wallman Architects, U/31, Ferris + Associates Inc., Baker Real Estate Inc. and KG&A.

In a lengthy selection process, most winners of the BILD Awards are chosen by a jury of industry experts. However, for the People’s Choice Award, the power of selection is put into the hands of the general public, which makes the award one of the most coveted in the BILD Awards. This prize is considered massively important within the industry, as it represents the voice of the GTA people who will ultimately occupy the award-winning dwellings.

Initially shortlisted alongside seven other finalists, Aoyuan International’s master-planned community ended up snagging the award. The project was also nominated for the Best Suite Design award, thanks to M2M’s expansive square footage, smart home features, and thoughtful details, such as laminate wood flooring, Kohler fixtures, integrated appliances, and under-cabinet lighting.

Aoyuan International believes in and is committed to “building a healthy lifestyle” for its residents, and is thrilled that the M2M site has received its official approval from the city. With the BILD People’s Choice win drawing even more attention to the project, all eyes will definitely be on this exciting new community as the Newtonbrook Plaza is transformed over the coming years. The TTC Yonge subway expansion, which will soon bring downtown public transit access to M2M’s door, will make the master-planned community an even more attractive place to call home for daily commuters between the 416 and 905 area codes.

With such a positive start in the Toronto market, there’s no telling what successes await Aoyuan International and M2M, but the outlook so far is incredibly optimistic, and the team is excited to build out its master-planned community with its many amenities — from a yoga studio, infinity pool, and co-working space to a marketplace and park for families in the neighbourhood. It’s this very blend of modern development, design, marketing, and communications that Aoyuan International believes led to M2M’s victory at this year’s BILD award.

Aoyuan International encourages a healthy urban lifestyle. To learn more about the project, visit the M2M Presentation Centre and model suite, located at 5851 Yonge St.. The Presentation Centre is open from noon to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, and from noon to 6 p.m. weekends. For further information or an appointment, call 416.901.2720 or visit the website.

GTA new home market shows encouraging signs in March

GTA new home market shows encouraging signs in March

CL June 19 News BILD

The GTA new home market continued to show some encouraging signs in March, according to the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD).

Total new home sales, with 2,314 new homes sold, were up 20 per cent from last year, though still 36 per cent below the 10-year average, according to Altus Group, BILD’s official source for new home market intelligence. There were 886 new single-family homes sold in March, including detached, linked and semi-detached houses and townhouses, up from last March’s low of 295, but still 38 per cent below the 10-year average. This is the fifth month in a row that new single-family home sales have increased year-over-year.Sales of new condominium units in low-, medium- and highrise buildings, stacked townhouses and loft units, with 1,428 units sold, were down 13 per cent from March 2018 and 34 per cent below the 10-year average.

Broader availability

“The desire to own a new single-family home never went away, but many would-be buyers have been taking a wait-and-see approach in the past two years,” says Patricia Arsenault, Altus Group’s executive vice-president, Data Solutions. “While the affordability of single-family homes in general remains a challenge, the broader range of product at more favourable price points that is starting to emerge has attracted some of these buyers into the market.”

The benchmark prices of both single-family homes and condominium apartments moderated slightly compared to the previous month. The benchmark price of new single-family homes was $1.12 million, down 7.6 per cent over the last 12 months, while the benchmark price of new condominium units was $780,839, up 5.1 per cent over the last 12 months.

Affordability still an issue

“Despite the recent slight moderation in new home prices, affordability is an issue for many people in the GTA, as we have learned from our Building Answers campaign, which encourages residents to ask questions about development,” says David Wilkes, BILD president and CEO. “Affordability will continue to be a challenge until structural remedies are introduced to fix the GTA’s housing supply shortage. It is clear that we all – industry, government and public – need to look for ways to build more housing faster and to mitigate unnecessary delays and costs on new housing.”

Remaining inventory in March included 11,744 condominium units and 5,054 single-family homes. Remaining inventory includes units in preconstruction projects, in projects currently under construction and in completed buildings.

When the Elite purchase condos

Latest News


When the Elite purchase condos

When people shop for a new condominium, I always advise them to make a list of must-haves and nice to-haves. It can also be fun to make a wish list of everything you would like to have if money was no object. Of course, nowadays, price looms large in most people’s consideration, but there are many buyers who can afford absolutely everything they desire. Imagine what an experience that must be!

So, what can money buy? The first thing that comes to mind is the opportunity to customize a penthouse extensively. Let’s say a purchaser starts with a 5,000-sq.-ft. design. Depending on preferences, that buyer might want a traditional layout with separate living and dining rooms. Those with more contemporary tastes may opt instead to have an open concept main living area with plenty of space for entertaining on a grand scale. This ballroom-inspired space could hold tables for dining or could be kept open, depending on the event.

Another benefit of money-is-no-object shopping is the ability to incorporate things such as exercise facilities, a home theatre, media room and whirlpool into the suite, rather than sharing these amenities with other residents. Talk about pure luxury! Even a private landscaped rooftop terrace with a pool is a possibility. Some of the most elite penthouses include space for staff quarters and a separate entrance as well, sometimes a private elevator. Multiple balconies and terraces may also be part of the suite’s layout to maximize views and the ability to enjoy the outdoors when the weather is pleasant.

Today’s new condos all come with outstanding features and finishes, but purchasers who can afford it all can have sumptuous appointments brought in from around the world. Kitchens alone can feature items such as a barbecue stove, vegetable steamer beside the sink, pasta tap at the back of the stove and an exotic backsplash. Maybe buyers want appliances to rise out of the counter with the press of a button.

And let’s talk master bedrooms and ensuites. The possibilities are positively elegant, from marble counters to lavish oval soaker tubs, spa features and steam rooms. A special wall designed specifically to fit an art collection, multiple fireplaces, backlit coffered panels on high ceilings, elegant chandeliers… if you can imagine it, a developer can likely source and install it. Think of these as the most upscale of upgrades imaginable.

There is another way to live an ultra-pampered lifestyle in a condominium – purchase in a residence situated above a five-star hotel. Suite owners can tap into the world-class amenities of the hotel below. How wonderful it must be to simply hop on an elevator to indulge in spa treatments or dine at a superb restaurant.

For some elite buyers, a penthouse in Toronto is one of two or more residences they own. They may consider it a home base during business trips or vacations. Yes, this is a dream scenario for most of us, but isn’t it grand to know that a condominium wish list can become reality for those who can afford it?

BARBARA LAWLOR is president and CEO of Baker Real Estate Inc., winner of the pinnacle 2017 Riley Brethour Award from BILD, and an indemand columnist and speaker. A member of the Baker team since 1993, she oversees the marketing and sales of condominium developments in the GTA and overseas. Keep current with The Baker Blog at blog.bakerrealestate.com

Buying a new home and have some questions? Ask now, and ask often

Latest News


Buying a new home and have some questions? Ask now, and ask often

BILDGTA_TSA web

“Got questions? We have answers.” If you’re a prospective new-home buyer in the GTA, you may have noticed an advertising campaign with these and other similar messages lately.

The “we” is GTA homebuilders, and through a Building Answers public awareness campaign launched by their representative body, the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD), they aim to provide the answers.

Indeed, this six-week program that began in early April should be just beginning of ongoing communications with homebuyers.

Comprising billboard, transit and media advertising and other communications, Building Answers strives to do just that – provide answers to many of the questions GTA homeowners and prospective homebuyers have.

It’s a long list. Here are some of them:

  • Why is there so much development in the GTA?

  • Do we really need all these condominiums and other developments?

  • What makes up the cost of a new home or condominium?

  • How does transit benefit from new development?

  • How much do homebuilders make on an average project?

  • Why does the price of homes in the GTA keep rising?

And the big one, for those who have been saving to buy a home, only to watch on the sidelines as prices continue to rise:

  • Will I ever be able to afford a home in the GTA?

These are not fictitious, marketing-oriented questions. They are actual queries from would-be homebuyers who legitimately wonder when, and how, they’ll be able to buy a home here. And if they can’t, should they look, and consider moving, elsewhere?

There are countless other questions, of course, and you can view the detailed answers to all of them – and ask your own – at a dedicated website buildinganswers.ca.

If you’re spending hundreds of thousands of dollars – or beyond a million – on a home, you have every right to ask all the questions you want. And if you don’t get an answer that satisfies you, ask again. Or move along to another builder.

With Building Answers, the companies that provide these new-home buying opportunities in the GTA have demonstrated they are open to the discussion.

Even beyond the scope of this program – raise your hand and ask all the questions you need to.

Collecdev introduces Tretti Condos – Scandinavian-inspired living in the heart of Wilson Heights

Collecdev introduces Tretti Condos – Scandinavian-inspired living in the heart of Wilson Heights

If Instagram, Pinterest, and a million design blogs are to be believed, Scandinavian design is having a major moment. This positions Tretti Condos, a Scandinavian-inspired community by Collecdev, as the perfect new home. But, true to form for the socially-conscious developer, Tretti doesn’t just pay lip service to the northern European aesthetic.

“The ethos of Tretti celebrates craftsmanship, function, and social connection,” says Collecdev President, Maurice Wager, “which are the inherent values of Collecdev. We believe that good design and a true connection to a thriving community should be accessible to everyone. That’s what we’re delivering at Tretti.”

Sitting in the heart of Wilson Heights, a stone’s throw from Yorkdale Shopping Centre and steps from the subway, Tretti offers 13 storeys of understated modern design. Minimalist architecture by award-winning firm gh3* maximizes form and function, giving way to bright open-concept interiors outfitted in a palette of natural finishes that transition seamlessly to the outdoors.

The striking combination of contemporary architecture, elegant interiors, and a strong connection to nature satisfies Collecdev’s commitment to experiential design. It allows the developer to create human-centred communities that display a fundamental understanding of the way people truly want to live.

That commitment extends not only to the community, but to the environment and to society at large through initiatives such as innovative geothermal energy systems that reduce the negative impact of urban development, and Collecdev H.O.M.E. (Home Ownership Made Easy), a program that will help more people realize their dreams of homeownership at Tretti, and ensure the city’s long-term accessibility and growth.

Speaking of accessibility, Tretti residents will enjoy convenient access to a neighbourhood bursting with parks, shopping, bars, restaurants, and bakeries. Fill up on style at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Bike to Downsview Park. Sample Wilson Heights’ diverse eateries. Or commute easily to York University, Humber River Hospital, and Hwy. 401. But it may be hard to tear yourself away from the incredible lineup of amenities on site.

Tretti will feel like a breath of fresh air with outdoor spaces that include expansive terraces, a rooftop fireside lounge, a children’s playscape, private courtyards, a 16,000 sq. ft. community park, and more than 100 trees creating an urban forest in the heart of the city.

Little ones will find room to grow in the children’s play area, offering cosy reading nooks and a stage where imaginations can run wild. Four-legged family members will love the pet-friendly indoor playground and washing station. The modern lobby, elegant dining room and lounge, and state-of-the-art fitness studio create natural gathering points, places to entertain, relax, play, and interact. And, lest you think work has been forgotten, Tretti features a collaborative co-working space, designed for freelancers and digital nomads seeking a place to be productive, connected, and inspired.

With multi-functional design, thoughtful amenities, a vibrant community, direct subway access, and spacious two-bedroom suites priced from the $400,000s, Tretti offers incredible value, truly the best of all worlds. It’s Scandinavian style with a Toronto address. And it’s ready to welcome you home.
