LOVE Condominiums and Townhomes is designed with community living in mind. While it’s still located in Toronto, the projects offers residents a garden oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The private landscape courtyard will be framed by two towers and a collection of 14 townhomes. For further piece of mind, there will also be a concierge at the entrance, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Gemterra, the developer behind the ambitious project, envisioned an enclave with plenty of social and green spaces. Aside from the two-tiered green space with courtyard, there’s also a rooftop garden, the perfect spot for morning Tai Chi or daily relaxation.
To learn more about the new undertaking at Kennedy Road and Sheppard Avenue East, we had a chat with Yan Wang, Vice President of Gemterra Development Corporation.
LOVE is your first development in Toronto. Why did you choose this location for the development?
This neighbourhood in Scarborough is surrounded by services and organizations that cater to the growing multicultural community. Simply walk a few steps and residents can shop at Agincourt or at Pacific Mall up the road or enjoy a delicious meal at one of the many Chinese restaurants located nearby. LOVE is more than a condo building, it’s a community. Without even leaving your home, you can get involved with a familiar community. You’re surrounded by services and organizations geared towards newcomers and celebrating a rich heritage.
How do you see the community evolving over the next 10 years?
Scarborough is an incredible investment. It is significantly more affordable per square foot than neighbouring Toronto and Richmond Hill, but and is witnessing escalating rents faster than any other market in the GTA. Scarborough is poised for a boom. The recent Subway/LRT announcement only adds to the appeal of living in this well-established community.
What makes LOVE a family-oriented community?
LOVE Condos is built so that all amenity and recreation spaces and all units accommodate and cater to residents of all ages, creating a strong community. The private courtyard is designed for entertaining, with barbecues and plenty of outdoor seating for hosting. Inside the amenity building there is a yoga and a fitness area that appeals to exercise enthusiasts, as well as a hot tub and swimming pool that is a relaxing retreat for all ages. The rooftop garden includes a passive space for exercise, Tai Chi and relaxing. There is something for everyone at LOVE Condominiums and all the amenity and recreation spaces are designed to bring people together.
Have you seen a lot of families buying units in the building?
We certainly do have some families – from young couples to grandparents purchasing multiple units at LOVE.
Do you have plans to continue building within the community in the future?
Yes, we will continue with Phase 2 after our Fall 2014 launch, as well as consider a new developments in the general area in the future.
Is LOVE celebrating Chinese New Year in any way?
Chinese New year is a joyful time of the year. LOVE will be celebrating with family and friends to mark the beginning of the Year of the Horse.
