Located on the former Newtonbrook Plaza site on Yonge Street, north of Finch Avenue West, M2M Condos is a five-tower, 8.6-acre, multi-phase development by Aoyuan International. When completed, the master-planned community will house over 1,600 residential units, 180,000 square feet of office and retail space, daycare facilities, a community centre and a new public park.
Following its initial sold-out debut in 2018, the developer is now set to release the latest phase of homes with the launch of M2M Spaces. One of the first projects to launch in Toronto this spring, M2M Spaces also marks a major step forward for the new construction real estate market as pandemic lockdown restrictions begin to ease.
M2M’s Spaces was designed for multigenerational families, working parents, young professionals and homebuyers seeking spacious, flexible residences. The collection boasts two- and three-bedroom townhomes and tower suites with skyline views and luxury amenities, all within a vibrant, urban location.
Combining the best of both worlds, homebuyers will benefit from larger, family-sized suites that are traditionally seen in the suburbs and a maintenance-free lifestyle with access to local amenities and public transit. The collection consists of 25 spacious townhomes ranging from 1,000 to 1,300 square feet and 12 additional sub-penthouse units beginning at 703 square feet.
“When we created the Spaces Collection, it was really important to us that the residences feel like single-family homes. People are spending more time at home nowadays and we recognize how important residences which are both functional and private are,” said Vince Santino, Senior Vice President, Development, Aoyuan International. “We know that families of all sizes will enjoy the larger units, added flex spaces, exterior terraces and incredible amenities unique to M2M.”
Designed to maximize greenspace, every suite will have access to fresh air and lush outdoor spaces, whether it be views of the future neighborhood park in the Park Collection, private courtyard terraces in the Courtyard Collection or a private rooftop terrace in the Rooftop Collection.
Inside, large windows allow an abundance of natural light to stream through, while flexible floorplans give buyers the choice of an extended living, kitchen and dining area. In the townhomes, another option incorporates sliding panels that open into a family room on the main level. To further support privacy and the needs of diverse families, Sky Collection residences feature Aoyuan’s switchable smart glass panels, which change from transparent to opaque at the flip of a switch.
“What sets M2M Spaces apart from other new developments is their thoughtfully designed floorplans, with specific delineation between living spaces and bedrooms. We’ve intentionally separated the two, so busy families can lead calmer lives,” said Rudy Wallman of Wallman Architects.
“We designed this collection to feel as spacious as detached homes — with flex spaces that can be easily converted for a number of possibilities and households — whether that’s working from home or entertaining your kids in the bonus functional spaces.”
Residents of M2M Spaces will have access to a range of luxury amenities, including a ninth floor infinity pool, pet spa and a state-of-the-art gym. Plus, a convenient business centre provides a quiet place for those who work from home.
“The Spaces Collection is definitely inspired by our focus on healthy living, which is reflected in both the interiors of the residences and the wellness-inspired property amenities,” said Santino. “In our fast-paced world where we all juggle different aspects of life, these residences are designed to make things easier for you by giving you everything you need in one place.”
Outdoor amenities include a children’s play area, private courtyard and a brand new public park that will offer much-needed greenspace for residents and community members in North York.
“At M2M Spaces, residents will benefit from the abundance of outdoor amenities available to them, whether through recreation, spending time with loved ones, or simply disconnecting,” added Paul Ferris of Ferris + Associates Landscape Design. “Now more than ever we can see how important access to the outdoors and green spaces are for everyone in the city,”
