Marlin Spring Developments has a diverse portfolio of residential and mixed-use projects throughout the GTA, but the Toronto-based developer doesn’t just build homes in any neighbourhood. Marlin Spring focuses on acquiring residential properties in prime locations that offer strong potential for long-term value, and where people wish to live, work and play. The company has a proven track record with successful projects like WestBeach in the Beach and Canvas on The Danforth, both situated in emerging neighbourhoods poised for growth.
The developer’s latest project, Stockyards District Residences, brings it to the west end of the city. Once lined with meat-packing plants and foundries, the Stockyards is currently experiencing a wave of renewal with new retail stores, cafes, event spaces and breweries setting up shop. The charming collection of independent retailers gives the neighbourhood a vibe of community pride, liveliness and a profound spirit that is one of the most unique in the city.
“The Stockyards is a special place,” said Zev Mandelbaum, Principal and co-founder of Marlin Spring Developments in an interview with Livabl. “Maybe it’s the grunginess of the brick or the history steeped in it, but there’s definitely character there. When you walk down the street, you feel the pulsating life, culture and energy.”
Designed by the renowned Graziani + Corazza Architects, the ten-storey mid-rise boasts a contemporary exterior design that compliments the area’s historical surroundings with industrial-inspired architectural features like black window mullions and classic brick cladding.
The industrial aesthetic is echoed inside where interior spaces designed by U31 are lined with earthy materials and textures in industrial-inspired colours. The expansive lobby and ground floor retail are reminiscent of New York and Chicago style lofts with exposed brick walls, high ceilings, oversized windows and contemporary lighting fixtures.
Priced from the low-$400,000’s, suites at Stockyards District Residences include one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts with nine-foot ceilings, energy-efficient appliances, quartz slab countertops and black matte bathroom and kitchen fixtures. The units are ideal for young families or first-time buyers who are looking to enter the housing market, but also great for those wishing to downsize and stay in this desired location surrounded by retail, parkland, walking trails, bike paths and public transit.
Amenities invite residences to entertain in style, starting with a professionally-landscaped courtyard and parkette off the main floor. With multiple covered lounge and dining nooks, these inviting outdoor amenities provide residents with various options for relaxing retreats or open-air entertaining.
The chic and elegant party room is the perfect backdrop for more formal occasions and private gatherings. Equipped with a bar, lounge, and a contemporary mix of furniture and lighting, the entertainment space beckons you to relax and unwind with close company. Other amenities include a kid’s play room, kid’s playground area and an outdoor dog run.
