You know a boutique townhouse development will be a success when it receives praise from Canada’s national newspaper. UrbanQuest’s new luxury development in Toronto’s sought-after Little Italy neighbourhood was recently recognized in The Globe and Mail for its innovative design, boutique concept and central location. In short: it’s a rarity.
The innovation begins by having two unique luxury developments on one site at 456 Shaw Street; The Jaedon Mews and DeZine. DeZine, located directly on Shaw, is three levels and consists of seven homes; Jaedon, tucked onto a semi-private laneway, is four storeys and has only six homes. Jaedon was named by Vivienne Ziner, President of UrbanQuest, after her youngest son.
“That’s how proud we are of our properties,” Ziner told the Globe. “We’re unusual in the way we go about things and our level of excellent speaks for itself.”
The architect, Glenmorris Cohen, is also Ziner’s husband. He’s opted to design a building that is “urban slick”, an elegant and modern building with large glass windows, clay brick material and stunning wood accents.
DeZine is located at 456 Shaw Street, just north of College Street and east of Ossington Avenue. The luxury building boasts street-level studies and private courtyards, where The Jaedon Mews towns (the row of towns directly behind) feature basements, third-floor master penthouse suites with ensuites, balconies and walk-in closets. Each townhome will also have street-level entrances, open principal rooms and most important, private self-contained integrated parking with individual remote controls.
Both projects have unique characteristics; the DeZine units don’t have basements, Ziner says instead they will have live/work spaces located on the entrance level that are geared toward modern families. The Jaedon side will be equally modern with fabulous kitchens under soaring 12-foot ceilings that feature large skylights and penthouse suites. But no matter the building, each townhouse will be outfitted with floating staircases, Scavolini kitchens with quartz or Corian counters, AEG and Liebherr appliances and master bathrooms with Philippe Starck-style soaker tubs.
House hunters, take note: the first phase has already sold out, and only two remain to be sold before completion. Construction is underway and completion is scheduled for next summer, so be sure to take advantage of this opportunity while they’re still up for grabs!
Prices for available units start from $1. 49 million and homes range in size from 1,745 to 1,838 square feet.
