Focused on the downtown core, CentreCourt Developments takes a unique approach to building condos. Instead of splitting their attention between multiple projects at a time, the builder prefers to work on one or two projects a year to ensure each undertaking lives up to their high expectations.

Most recently, in 2014, CentreCourt launched Core Condos at 68 Shuter Street and managed to sell out the 221-unit project within a week.

And now there’s a new condo about to take the neighbourhood by storm: Grid Condos is a 47-storey tower coming to the corner of Jarvis and Dundas, directly across the street from Ryerson University.

“There’s just an incredible amount of vibrancy, energy and youth in the neighbourhood,” said Shamez Virani, Vice President of CentreCourt Developments.

“We realized by virtue of Core Condos’ incredible success that there’s pent-up demand in the area just east of Yonge and in particular the area immediately surrounding Ryerson University.”

Aside from neighbouring Ryerson University, an institution home to roughly 39,000 students, Grid Condos is also close to other major education hubs such as George Brown College, the National Ballet School of Canada as well as St. Michael’s Hospital, which acts as a teaching hospital for many medical students.

That emphasis on learning and student life will play out in the shape of the condo as well.

“Our amenity program at Grid Condos is more extensive than what we’ve done on any of our past projects in terms of square footage. We will have two full floors of amenity programs, one of which we’re calling the Grid Learning Centre,” said Virani.

“It’s not something that’s been done before.”

The Grid Learning Centre takes inspiration from the new Ryerson Student Learning Centre, which just opened this spring on Yonge Street. The contemporary structure is home to plenty of space for the 21st century student – study rooms, private cubicles, plenty of outlets for laptops and tablets as well as space to just hang out and relax.

Altogether, the Grid Learning Centre will feature approximately 6,000 square feet of indoor space and approximately 2,500 square feet of outdoor space. It will come equipped with comfortable, modular seating for study sessions as well break-out rooms equipped with the latest technology for group work.

There’s also no need to fight for a table and electrical outlet at a campus coffee shop – the expansive amenity space will even come equipped with a cafe area.

The project has already attracted plenty of attention.

“My phone hasn’t stopped ringing for the last number of days. People want to get in when we do launch the project,” said Virani. “I think we’re going to have a really positive response when we do come to market.”

Grid Condos is designed by Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects and will be home to 528 suites.

The project is currently in its registration phase.
