Coming soon to 18 Ferrand Drive, just south of Eglinton Avenue, Sonic Condominiums is a modern two-tower development by Lindvest. Situated at Eglinton Avenue and Don Mills, the master-planned community is close to a wealth of urban amenities including the Shops at Don Mills, Real Canadian Superstore, the Ontario Science Centre, Aga Khan Museum and Flemingdon Park Golf Course. Its desirable location also places it steps from the future Don Mills Station of the Eglinton Crosstown, in addition to major thoroughfares like Don Mills Road, Eglinton Avenue and the DVP.
However, what really sets Sonic apart is its 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor, resort-style amenities located right within the development. Designed with play, party and relaxation in mind, the impressive amenity spaces at Sonic are designed to encourage a social and active lifestyle, or provide private spaces for quiet contemplation.
Take the generous fourth floor rooftop terrace for example. Designed by award-winning NAK Design Strategies, the expansive outdoor terrace features private cabanas, secluded seating spaces, and an outdoor barbecue and dining area. A soothing waterfall and lush greenery further enhance the space creating a garden-like environment in the centre of the city.
“The design of these outdoor spaces was influenced by the people we anticipate will live at Sonic,” said Robert Ng, Principal at NAK Design Strategies. “We expect many young urban professionals and small families to gravitate to Sonic, and these people will want options in their activities, just like you may experience at a resort.”
Because the fourth floor terrace will eventually sit between the two residential towers, NAK had the design challenge of creating privacy between the two towers and the terrace itself. To address this challenge, Nak created “buffer green spaces” consisting of generous trees and shrubbery which act as a fence to separate the common area with the private residences.
NAK also designed the professionally landscaped park that will be built right outside Sonic’s doorsteps. The public park will include a figure eight-shaped walking path, fitness stations, children’s playground, water features and plenty of secluded seating alcoves for lounging.
“This was a rare opportunity in a city of sidewalks and concrete such as Toronto,” said Ng. “This is called ‘POPS’, or privately owned public spaces – owned by the developer but made available for public use and access. Naturally, we expect this to be very well received by the entire neighbourhood.”
Other in-house amenities include a well-equipped fitness centre, yoga studio, steam rooms, screening/music room, hobby room and a guest suite for overnight visitors.
