From DNA Condos on King West to Aura at College Park, Canderel Residential is known for creating innovative projects that transform neighbourhoods. For its latest endeavor, the Toronto-based developer is focusing on the city’s midtown neighbourhood of St. Clair Village. This stretch of St. Clair West has been in the midst of urban renewal and will soon welcome Canderel’s St. Clair Village Condos. The 12-storey residence is at the centre of the action and captures the City’s new urban vision for St. Clair Avenue West.
“The City worked extensively with surrounding communities in a series of Avenue studies to ensure the local character of the neighbourhood is preserved, while allowing this part of the city to grow and flourish,” says James Deitcher, Director of Development, Residential Group at Canderel. “Every element of the streetscape along St. Clair is balanced. Wide sidewalks, a dedicated streetcar lane, mixed-use zoning and boutique retail storefronts, create the ideal environment for mid-rise development.”
When complete, residents will be steps away from an array of Toronto’s top restaurants, bakeries, bistros, markets, boutiques, galleries and parks. Local favourites include Krave Coffee, seafood market De La Mer, and Artscape Wychwood Barns —a social hub for the community, known for its very popular farmers market that runs every Saturday throughout the year.
Well served by transit, St.Clair Village is situated along the St. Clair streetcar line and minutes from St. Clair West subway station. Here, residents can take a quick 20-minute ride to the downtown core or head north towards Vaughan. They can also enjoy the pristine green spaces and community amenities of the nearby Cedarvale, Casa Loma and Forest Hill neighbourhoods.
Envisioned by award-winning architectural firm Quadrangle, the design of St. Clair Village pays homage to its roots through the use of cordoven bronze, maroon brick and dark bronze window mullions.
“The design is subtle in its form with dynamic, tactile textures and details. The intention was for the building to become part of the neighbourhood, as if it had always been there,” says Richard Witt, Principal at Quadrangle. “A framed glass façade creates a dynamic retail experience with amenity spaces strategically placed on the second level to further animate activity on the street.”
The intersection of old and new continues indoors where interior spaces are characterized by sleek lines and refined textures. “We brought the warmth of the neighbourhood’s architecture inside with a slight transition to a lighter, modern palette,” says Kathy Chow, Interior Designer at Canderel. “As a result, interiors showcase a play between light and dark.”
A monochromatic geometric screen, cove lighting and stone accents create a warm entrance while a stone-surround fireplace provides a designer focal point in the lobby. Within the building, residents will have access to a wide array of amenities designed for health, rest and entertaining. Wine collectors can entertain with a featured temperature-controlled wine storage lounge or bring the party outdoors on the 2,526-square-foot rooftop terrace with sweeping views of the CN Tower and downtown core. Other amenities include the Club 900 social lounge and a state-of-the-art fitness centre equipped with TRX props and cardio equipment with built-in tablets for live class streaming.
Priced from the $500,000s to over $1 million, the suites at St. Clair Village are ideal for a range of homebuyers, from young professionals to families and downsizers. A large percentage of suites are spacious three-bedroom units and the building’s L-shape design allows for highly desirable corner layouts. Plus, purchasers have the opportunity to combine select units for the ultimate in customization.
