VANDYK group of companies, creators of the highly successful Backyard Neighbourhood Condos community in South Etobicoke, will release its second residential building, “The Queensview”, for sale this coming spring. Following the success of the first building, “The Humberside” (which sold out in record time and is well into construction), “The Queensview” at Backyard Neighbourhood Condos promises a second opportunity for purchasers to buy into this truly inspired community at Berry Road and Stephen Drive in Etobicoke.
The master planned community will feature a mixture of market style shoppes and three mid-rise condos all situated around a beautiful 1-acre park, creating an intimate village vibe. The park will provide an outdoor amenity complete with an artistic play structure, interactive splash pad and artificial turf for year round enjoyment.
Based on President and CEO John C. Vandyk’s vision, Backyard Neighbourhood Condos is reclaiming the vibrancy and community spirit of this secret gem of a Toronto neighbourhood.
“I wanted to recreate the kind of community that has a real neighbourhood spirit, where families, young and old can live, play, shop and gather together like they used to — but in a new and relevant way for today’s urban condo dwellers,” he shares.
“The Queensview”, designed by Kohn Partnership Architects will rise a modest 10 storeys, providing impressive views of The Humber River, the downtown Toronto skyline and coveted Sunnylea neighbourhood. For this building, Kohn has selected classic crimson brick with accents in cool white precast and warm wood, wrapping a contemporary glass skin punctuated with sweeping terraces. Just 134 suites will be available for sale starting from the mid $300s. Within “The Queensview”, residents will enjoy a welcoming lobby, well-outfitted fitness centre, a convenient guest suite, a party room linked to an outdoor terrace, a pet spa, meeting room and children’s play space.
The first phase at Backyard Condos is its commercial component, Shoppes at Stonegate. The two-storey retail pavilion will be anchored by The Berry Road Food Co-op, an 8,000 square foot not-for-profit grocery store. The Co-op will sell healthy and sustainable food, all sourced from local food producers. It will also feature food education, such as cooking, canning and food preservation classes.
The Stonegate Community Health Centre will occupy the second floor of the building, providing convenient health services to residents and the community at large. The Shoppes at Stonegate is in the final stages of construction with occupancy slated for summer 2018.
Backyard Neighbourhood Condos is located at the corner of Berry Rd. and Stephen Dr. in the established Stonegate community. Neighbouring the Swansea, High Park and Roncesvalles areas, the development is minutes from the Gardiner Expy. as well as the lively Lakeshore area.
