New home developers across the country continue to adjust to the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Although some developers have started to open their presentation centres, there remains strict health and safety guidelines and limits on the number of people allowed inside. Additionally, most model homes and condo suites are currently closed, making it difficult for buyers to visualize floorplans and ensure they choose the right home for their needs.
To support prospective homebuyers in their home search, Toronto-based developer Tridel has provided a series of virtual tours of its model suites. Model suite virtual tours are available for Tridel developments including Avani 2, SQ2, Aquavista, Ten York and Sherwood.
Located at Tride’s popular Metrogate master-planned community at Kennedy Road and Highway 401 in Scarborough, Avani 2 is a two-tower residence with smartly designed suites and family-friendly amenities. The development offers two models to tour including Suite 215, a 700 -square-foot, one-bedroom-plus-den, and Suite 217, also a one-bedroom-plus-den, but with a little more space at 875 square feet. Both models are bright and spacious with a large kitchen and living area, functional den space for a home office or library, and two full bathrooms.
If you’ve always dreamed of living in a loft space, be sure to check out Suite L6 at SQ2 at Alexandra Park near Spadina Avenue and Queen Street West. This airy, two-storey loft suite boasts plenty of natural light and comes complete with state-of-the-art appliances and designer finishes like engineered hardwood floors and stone countertops. The main floor houses the unit’s kitchen, powder room and a great room with access to a patio. Upstairs, you’ll find a four-piece main bathroom, guest bedroom, and a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a four-piece ensuite.
At Tridel’s Aquavista lakeside community near Queens Quay East and Lower Sherbourne, you can tour a pair of beautifully-furnished penthouses. GPH 35 is a bold and contemporary suite with a 1,420-square-foot, open-concept layout, two bedrooms and modern finishes. The suite’s split floorplan places the two bedrooms on opposite ends, separated by the living room, dining room and kitchen. Primed for entertaining, the design encourages warm gatherings in the heart of the home, yet emphasizes privacy for residents.
Still need more space? SPH 12 boasts 2,608 square feet of living space divided between two levels. The first floor consists of the main living area, including a gourmet kitchen, dining room and a cozy living room with a gas fireplace. It’s also home to a luxurious master retreat with an ensuite and expansive walk-in closet. A second master bedroom with a walk-in closet and spa-inspired ensuite shares the second floor with a family room, laundry room and powder room.
At 2,009 square feet, Suite 2J+D at Ten York — located at York Street and Harbour Street — has plenty of space for young families or empty nesters. The layout is functional and stylish with a generous main living area with a wall of windows, dining room, and a galley kitchen with tons of storage and prep space. The two bedrooms are situated on opposite ends of the suite and both feature walk-in closets and luxurious ensuites. Plus, the master bedroom includes a walk-in steam shower! However, what really makes this suite stand out is the stunning views from every window. High above the city on the 66th floor, this suite offers luxury urban living.
Finally, Suite 534 at Sherwood on Bayview Avenue at Lawrence Avenue East proves that the condo lifestyle can be for families, too. This exclusive three-bedroom suite is lined with refined finishes and features, open-concept living spaces, a sleek white kitchen, and an elegant master bedroom with a walk-in closet and stunning ensuite. Before you exit the virtual tour, don’t forget to view the home’s large outdoor terrace. Not only does it overlook a lush ravine, but the brick facade and wrought-iron railings provide added charm.
