Aria Condominium and Townhome Collection [map] , the remarkable new hilltop community at Leslie Street and Sheppard Avenue East, is about to bring back a much-loved but fast disappearing city lifestyle – the town house.
Rising land costs and the dwindling availability of sites has seen spacious, two-storey townhomes all but disappear from the new homes market. Now however, three of the GTA’s most experienced builders that are creating the new Aria community are introducing 41 elegant, new brick and stucco, 3 and 4-bedroom town houses as the grand finale to a remarkable project.
They go on sale this April and judging by pre-sale demand will disappear quickly.
Priced from $699,900, these exquisite residences range in size from 2,300 to 2,800 square feet – almost twice the size of many suburban equivalents.
Aria seems to be brimming with cool amenities and accents including private two-car garages, powder rooms, hardwood flooring, gas fireplaces and much more…
Want a home with its own ground floor walk-out patio or one with a sundeck off the kitchen for al fresco dining? All of these remarkable homes offer those features as well.
Cityzen Development Group together with Menkes Developments and Fernbrook Homes are the development partners on Aria. Each brings decades of building experience and design expertise to the project.
Speaking on the deliberate design to incorporate the surrounding wooded ravine……
“Again, it is that southern European influence at play,” says Joseph Cordiano, partner in Cityzen. “There people want to live as part of nature. They don’t want artificial borders.
“This is one of those perfect projects that celebrates just how green and inviting this city is,” says Mr. Cordiano. “And yet, at the same time, it is right at the TTC Sheppard subway line and minutes away from both Highway 401 and the Don Valley Parkway.
“It is the best of all worlds.”
Currently the two Aria towers are well under construction. Suites from 840 – over 2000 sq. ft. in those towers are still available with prices starting from $379,900.
