In Toronto’s emerging Fort York Neighbourhood, the multi-award-winning Vancouver-based firm Onni will soon introduce the first building in its master-planned community that is appropriately called “The Yards.”

The first building, Garrison at The Yards [map], has been designed to appeal to first-time buyers and others seeking value in a convenient location.

Wallman Architects created the design for this 11-storey midrise tower that will rise from an 8-storey podium and will contain 207 suites.

According to Jane Renwick, Toronto Vice President of Onni:

“First-time buyers who want to live in a fantastic location at a great price will find Garrison at The Yards irresistible… The architecture is striking, and the fabulous interiors are by award-winning II By IV Design Associates. We thought through the building amenities very carefully, and in order to keep maintenance fees low, we only included those that residents will use on a regular basis. The suites themselves will include a high level of features and finishes, so the value here is truly incredible.”

The contemporary glass and brick tower will rise to create a distinctive silhouette and act as a gateway from Fort York to Lake Ontario along Bathurst Street. The exterior walls facing south will feature a random horizontal pattern inspired by the movement of cars at night, and the landscaped courtyard will include both soft and hard landscaping, water features and a play area.

Onni’s master-planned community will encompass four buildings that will add approximately 1,000 residences to the neighborhood.

It’s a quick trip to the Air Canada Centre, Rogers Centre, Harbourfront, yacht clubs, and the many other attractions and amenities that dot Toronto’s downtown core. The shops and restaurants on King and Queen Streets, trendy Liberty Village, Ontario Place, the Exhibition Grounds, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, CN Tower, Roy Thomson Hall, Queen’s Quay, the Financial District and the nearly completed June Callwood Park are all within a few blocks, making this a highly coveted residential destination.

Onni has a proven track record for revitalizing existing neighbourhoods and creating new ones. The company also has a well-earned reputation for providing architectural innovation, superior quality and courteous customer service. Onni’s superior expertise in creating master-planned communities will take the Fort York Neighbourhood’s revitalization to the next level.

We at BuzzBuzzHome are excited for this one!
