CentreCourt Developments is known for creating condos that fit right into the urban fabric of downtown Toronto, so naturally we were excited to get a peek at their brand new renderings.
Their projects seldom stray far from major subway lines and Core Condos, their latest undertaking, will be steps from the Yonge subway line, Eaton Centre and all the downtown amenities you could ask for.
“In the last ten years, Toronto has been evolving towards a lifestyle that is much more dependant on walkability and public transit,” said Andrew Hoffman, President and Founder of CentreCourt Developments, explaining the builder’s decision to build at Church and Shuter Street.
“As traffic continues to get worse and worse, we think that there’s going to be a continuation of more people wanting to live downtown and be close to their work and the places they go into day in and day out.”
The 24-storey condo’s location in the epicentre of the city is a key draw for buyers, but CentreCourt also understands that young urbanites need something accessible.
“About 80 per cent of our suites are under 600 square feet, which ultimately allows us to have very favourable end pricing,” said Shamez Virani, Vice President, CentreCourt Developments. “The units start in the low $200,000s and 80 per cent are priced under $400,000. With a location right in the core, that’s a fairly exciting proposition and one that I don’t think a lot of projects in the city offer to their buyers.”
However, the builders didn’t cut any corners when it comes to design. Page + Steele IBI Group Architects have come up with a dramatic exterior with two sculpted facades. There’s a strong sense of play in the the design, with its eye-catching curves and impression that every floor is different. For the interiors, Cecconi Simone has created highly efficient floorplans and amenity spaces that just make sense.
“We came up with an over-sized lounge concept as a place where, day-in and day-out, residents can really use. They can come with their laptop or a book – there’ll even be free wi-fi throughout. It’s an environment that they’ll be able to use daily,” said Virani.
Unlike other condos which often segregate different amenities, the fourth floor will be dedicated to common areas such as a lounge space, a high-end coffee bar, gym and roughly 3,000-square feet of terrace space, complete with a fire pit, ample seating and barbeque areas.
“The lounge is really like an extension of the living room and residents could use it whether they were entertaining or if they just wanted to hang out in a social environment that’s similar to what you would see in a cafe on the street,” said Hoffman.
The individual suites are equipped with floor to ceiling windows, natural stone countertops and stainless steel appliances. Units range in size from 390 to 775 square feet.
