Carriage Gate Homes held an official groundbreaking ceremony this week at its Gallery Condos + Lofts project in downtown Burlington. The milestone event marked the start of construction at the 156-unit condominium and was attended by purchasers, elected officials including Parliamentary Assistant (PA) to Minister Clark, Parm Gill, Director of Policy at the Ontario Home Builders Association, Michael Collins-Williams and MPP Jane McKenna, as well as the President of Carriage Gate Homes and the Hamilton-Halton Home Builders Association, Nick Carnicelli.
When completed in spring 2022, Gallery Condos + Lofts will rise above the corner of Brant and James Street across from City Hall, playing a key role in the revitalization of downtown Burlington.The innovative mixed-use project features a new concept in living with modern residential units, loft-style suites, and commercial units on the ground floor, providing owners with access to a range of essential services.
The project’s desirable location places it within walking distance to a wealth of dining and entertainment venues. In addition to the mixed-use retail spaces planned at ground level, residents will be steps away from shops, restaurants and cultural institutions including Pure Boutique, Coffee Culture Cafe & Eatery, and the Burlington Performing Arts Centre. Plus, convenient access to the QEW, Highway 407 and the Burlington GO Station makes it ideal for commuters traveling to Toronto or the Hamilton-Niagara region.
Designed by Turner Fleischer Architects, the 22-storey building boasts contemporary exterior design comprised of a modern glass tower that rises from a four-storey, brick and cast stone podium. The development will be a first in a new generation of mixed-use buildings within the downtown core and features proposed outdoor patio seating designed to interact with City Hall’s Civic Square, located directly across the street.
Within the development, residents will have access to a full suite of amenities designed for health and entertainment. A rooftop patio with barbecues and an outdoor fireplace allows for residents to enjoy the fresh air and admire the views, while a sleek multi-purpose room with a bar and dining area is perfect for hosting dinner parties. Other amenities include a full fitness facility with a yoga studio and indoor pool.
Priced from the $400,000s to over $2 million, the suites at Gallery Condos + Lofts range in size from 600 square feet to 2,200 square feet and have functional, open-concept layouts with large living rooms, gourmet kitchens and expansive balconies or terraces. Standard finishes include wide plank laminate floors, nine-foot ceilings, two-tone kitchen cabinetry, polished quartz countertops and a modern porcelain tile backsplash.
