to skyline What’s in a view? From HighPark Condominiums in Bloor West Village, you’ll see the Toronto skyline, Lake Ontario and 400 acres of unobstructed parkland. The 14 storey, 407-unit condo and townhome development by The Daniels Corporation is slated for completion in the summer of 2015.

Last week, BuzzBuzzHome was invited on a construction tour to see how HighPark Condominiums is taking shape. Here’s what we saw:

The ground floor will feature 15,000 square feet of retail space. 7 Enoteca, an upscale Italian restaurant and wine bar, is moving in next year — we’ve sampled their fresh and locally sourced menu and trust us, it’s delicious.

retail space Fritted glass, as seen here with a dot design, helps to alert birds they are flying towards a solid object, thereby reducing the rate of bird mortality caused by collisions. HighPark’s bird-friendly glass meets Tier 1 of the Toronto Green Standard.

bird glass HighPark will feature studio, one bedroom, one bedroom plus den, two bedroom and two bedroom plus den suites, priced from $299,900. Interior finishes and features include kitchen cabinetry designed by Tomas Pearce with valance lighting, quartz countertops, kitchen islands, mirrored and marble backsplashes, stainless steel appliances, deep soaker tubs, frameless glass shower stalls and stackable washer/dryer units.

units The condominium’s amenities are highly innovative — The Parkside Club features three floors and 18,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor entertainment. The second floor includes a double-height rock climbing wall, weight studio, home theatre, sauna and gardening plots for residents with a green thumb. Here’s an overhead view of one of two green roofs, which will help to increase biodiversity and reduce the urban heat island effect.

The 10th floor terrace has a social room, catering kitchen and indoor and outdoor fireside lounges for entertaining throughout the four seasons. HighPark will also offer car and bike share programs, a 24 hour concierge and a dog spa.
