Located on 50 acres of the former Railway Lands between Bathurst Street and Spadina Avenue, Concord CityPlace has become home to over 20,000 residents since its launch in the late 1990s. After 20 years of development the master-planned community by Vancouver-based Concord Adex is now approaching completion. Its flagship residence, Concord Canada House, was launched earlier this year, just in time for Canada’s 150th birthday. The development will neighbour Toronto’s iconic CN Tower and feature a host of distinctly Canadian features and amenities.
“Every Concord community in Canada is special, but Concord Canada House is our opportunity to honour this terrific country,” says Terry Hui, President and CEO of Concord Adex. “With the maple leaf – a quintessential symbol of Canadian pride – as one of the central design themes, my personal goal with this development is to create a homage that has never been seen before.”
Designed by the award-winning Page + Steele IBI Group Architects, Concord Canada House consists of two modern glass towers rising 68- and 79-storeys above a shared 10-storey podium at the corner of Spadina Avenue and Bremner Boulevard. The sleek exterior features a unique lighting element with programmed LED strips that gradually light up to form an elegant maple leaf shape.
Inside, the towers will house approximately 1,363 units with spacious layouts, ranging from one bedroom suites to three bedroom units with a den. Standard features include wide plank laminate floors in main living areas, soft-close kitchen cabinets by Blum, quartz countertops and a Miele appliance package. Suites also sport large outdoor living rooms complete with radiant ceiling heaters, balcony lights, woodgrain soffit ceilings, composite wood decking and alfresco sliding glass doors with extra-wide openings as per plan.
Residents will have even more outdoor space on the rooftop terrace above the podium where plans call for a pond and water feature inspired by the Rideau Canal. The expansive outdoor area was designed by award-winning landscape design firm, PLANT Architects, who have previously worked on the Nathan Phillips Square Revitalization project, the Dundas-Roncesvalles Peace Garden and the Canadian Firefighters Memorial in Ottawa.
A sculpture of a 19th century schooner will grace the centre of the pond providing a nod to the historic wooden schooner that was discovered at the site of another CityPlace building at 70 Queens Wharf Road in 2015. In the winter, the pond transforms into a skating rink for all season enjoyment.
Concord Canada House will also boast some of the highest residential amenities in the country. Residents can enjoy panoramic views while working out at the fully-equipped SkyGym, relaxing at the dipping pool or indulging in some drinks on the 79th floor SkyLounge cocktail bar. Other amenities include a culinary event kitchen, an on-site car wash and EV charging station and a resort-style spa.
