arkell lofts

Arkell Lofts may be condos, but don’t let that fact fool you. The lofts are situated in four intimate, low-rise structures and the suites themselves are spacious enough to rival townhouses and singles.

Ranging in size from 1,345 to 1,722-square feet, the well-appointed suites by Granite Homes come in a variety of floorplans. Choose between bungalow-style units or among the several two-storey layouts.

Each space will feature 9-foot ceilings on the main floor and large windows that make each space feel even bigger. Light and airy, the open-concept condos are home to a number of thoughtful touches.

The gourmet kitchens come equipped with custom cabinetry, soft-close doors and drawers, stainless steel appliances and a full-height pantry for all your storage needs. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee at the kitchen island, which also features a double under mounted sink.

Choose between granite or quartz counters throughout and enjoy bathrooms outfitted with custom glass showers, dual flush toilets and contemporary 12-inch by 24-inch tiles.

The bedrooms are ultra-roomy. Master suites are large enough for King-sized beds while other bedrooms can easily fit a Queen.

Understanding the importance of outdoor space, each loft will come equipped with either a private balcony or terrace. The two-storey suites even come with a balcony on each floor.

The site itself will be landscaped with native plants for added greenery. In fact, 90 trees will be incorporated into the site and the mini-forest park will include landscape lighting throughout.

The layout of the buildings also capitalizes on all the available sunshine. The structures fan out to allow light to reach into the spaces between the buildings while the large overhangs and recessed windows maximize light penetration while using passive solar design. In other words, residents will enjoy extra shading in the summer and maximum light in the winter.

The smart design is all thanks to Altius Architects. The Toronto-based firm has picked up a number of awards and specializes in spaces that are modern, yet liveable. For the collection of condos, they’ve created contemporary exteriors made up of raw cut natural limestone, glass, stucco and treated Maibec wood siding.

Situated at Arkell Road and Gordon Street, the condo community is currently in its second phase.

There are a total of 32 suites, starting from $359,990.
