Home to pedestrian-friendly promenades, vibrant parks, shops, cafés and the Cooper Koo Family YMCA, the Canary District has distinguished itself as a family-oriented community focused on health and wellness. The latest phase of the “city within a city” is Canary Commons, a two-tower condominium project with 387 suites, including 43 spacious townhomes.

In response to a need for more family-sized condo units, developer Dundee Kilmer has announced that 65 per cent of units will be two- and three-bedroom suites. Interiors are characterized by nine foot smooth-finish ceilings, high quality plank laminate flooring, 4-inch baseboards throughout and in-suite controlled air conditioning and heating.

The chef-worthy kitchens feature custom-designed modern European style kitchen cabinetry, soft-close hardware, premium quartz countertops, tile backsplashes, stainless-steel sinks with pull out single lever faucets, 24″ or 30″ European style appliances and custom-designed island/table combinations (as per plan).

Generously-sized bathrooms include European style, custom-designed vanities, matching cabinetry, full width vanity mirrors, luxurious deep soaker tubs or showers with frameless clear glass fixed panels, premium tile flooring with tub and shower tile surrounds, and high-efficiency white porcelain plumbing fixtures.

The amenities at Canary Commons appeal to all types of buyers — from families with kids, to freelancing young professionals to active retirees. The lobby sports a clean and minimal aesthetic, with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, Carrara marble floors, an elongated concierge desk and comfortable furnishings. The fully-equipped fitness centre boasts cardio machines, weights, Pilates and Crossfit equipment, plus an indoor and outdoor yoga space.

The nearby children’s playroom is a colourful and engaging space where kids can do crafts, meet for a playdate or read a book in a quiet corner. For those looking to catch up on emails or meet with a client, the 3rd floor amenity area provides a hip co-working space with large tables, plush couches and even a foosball table.

The Commons is a spacious, multi-functional party room that boasts a catering kitchen, bistro-style bar and ample seating. The private dining area is perfect for hosting large get-togethers, with a fireplace focal point and natural wood accents, while the adjacent outdoor lounge and private theatre room offer additional entertaining options.

During the warmer months, residents of Canary Commons will flock to the 9,000 square foot rooftop terrace and courtyard gardens, designed by award-winning landscape architecture firm, NAK Designs. There are plenty of seating options, allowing you to sunbathe on your own, fire up the BBQ with friends, or enjoy an outdoor picnic with the family. You can also screen a film under the stars at the outdoor theatre, gather around a cozy fire pit, or take in sweeping city views from six floors up.

Dundee Kilmer recently broke ground on Canary Block, a sold out condominium residence also on the grounds of the Canary District. Sales at Canary Commons are expected to be equally quick, and prospective buyers are encouraged to register online to be among the first to know about the upcoming launch.
