Look What’s New for Spring

by | Feb 27, 2011

The fabric of new residential opportunities in the Greater Toronto Area includes a tapestry of condominiums in diverse styles and locations to fill a multitude of lifestyles. Following is a sneak peek at the condominium neighbourhoods Baker Real Estate Incorporated has coming onto the market now and this spring.

Just recently, Great Gulf Homes launched the Podium Suites at One Bloor, at the dynamic corner of Yonge and Bloor, where residents will have direct access to both subway lines. Called City Suites, these new designs offer a new opportunity to live in one of Canada’s most prestigious areas just a short walk to the restaurants and designer boutiques of Bloor-Yorkville. City Suites start from the $500s. Visit www.onebloor.com.

Remington will soon launch IQ Condominiums – their next master-planned community at Queensway and Islington in Etobicoke, in the former Queenston neighbourhood. Developers are continually coming up with new ways to distinguish their condominiums and make them stand out. The name IQ fits this building, which will have many smart green features. For a taste of how advanced this condominium is, be sure to visit the Presentation Centre when it opens. This phenomenal space will have 3D renderings projected onto the walls, so you can actually walk into them and feel the experience of the future lobby and more. You simply have to see it to believe it. Register now at www.remingtonhomes.com.

Remington is also getting ready to introduce Nexus North in Downtown Markham. This thriving master-planned community is creating a new, exciting hub for this prestigious Town. Nexus North will feature shopping and services on the ground floor, as well as a fabulous spa with a cascading waterfall, cold plunge pool and sauna. Visit www.remingtonhomes.com.

Watch for The Yorkville coming soon as well. Lifetime Developments has designed this boutique condominium of just 220 suites to complement Toronto’s most upscale area, and at surprisingly reasonable prices. With compact suites beginning from just the low-$300s, they offer a wonderful alternative to a hotel room as a pied-à-terre. The beauty of this location is being able to walk for two minutes, have your morning coffee at Pusateri’s and watch the comings and goings across the street at the Four Seasons Hotel. It’s a great location with great views, especially of Rosedale to the north. Visit www.theyorkville.com.

Exhibit Condominium Residences – what a fantastic address. This elegant boutique building by Plazacorp, Bazis International and Metropia will be situated on Bloor at Avenue Road, directly across from the Royal Ontario Museum. This is really centre ice when it comes to spectacular Toronto locations, and offers the most gorgeous views south to the city. Plus, you can stroll into Yorkville in a minute flat.  Designed as a series of stacked cubes at varying angles, Exhibit will be a bold architectural work of art that speaks to the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal across the street. Visit www.plazacorp.com.

And you’re bound to fall in love with Love, the new condominium coming to Scarborough, just across from the Agincourt Mall. Gemterra Development Corporation brings a wealth of experience creating condominiums in China to Toronto with this 305-suite building. The incredible starting price of $189,900 will attract first-time buyers looking to live in an amazingly convenient location.

Also coming this spring is Expression in Richmond Hill – the first high-rise by well-respected builder Zancor Homes. Situated at Yonge Street and 16th Avenue, this striking building will add style and panache to the skyline. The range of purchasers from first-time buyers to the move-down market will appreciate the rare opportunity to own a brand new condominium suite in this convenient Richmond Hill location with great views and quick access to major highways.

And at Sheppard Avenue and Don Mills Road, right across from Fairview Mall, watch for another grand tower coming later this spring to Emerald City. Following the success of the first two phases,EL‑AD Group will soon introduce the next building in this master-planned community that has direct access to the Sheppard Subway and an underground pathway to the mall.
