River City has been making a lot of headway these past few months, and because of it, they’re now gearing up for the release of their penthouse collection! We still don’t know all of the exact details but some key features I was able to find out are: 10′ ceilings, Saucier and Perrotte signature staircases, large rooftop terraces with stunning views of the city or open green space and gas hook ups!
As you can see from the photo above, construction of phase 1 is well underway! Even driving through the area you can see signs of the new public spaces, parks and roads coming together! Read the rest of this entry »
The River City Phase 2 development launched a few weeks back with great reception by the broker community! I’ve said it before and i’ll say it a million time more…there is massive potential for this part of town with all the different levels of government pumping money into it’s revitalization! The parks, both Underpass and Don River are just the start of the area amenities being built. The Pan-Am Games of 2015 is also bringing along a variety of local infrastructure that will help connect this part of town with the rest of the City. These changes are going to pay off by making the area both a great place to invest and live!
For those looking for place with a bit more space comes the River City Lofthouses! They range in size from 984 sq.ft. to 1328 sq.ft. and are two storeys tall. Each unit also comes with a large terrace…or in this case, veranda at the front of the unit. Check out the floorplans below: Read the rest of this entry »
The much awaited launch of River City Phase 2 has arrived! The building is currently available to only small group of VIP Realtors. I paid the sales centre a visit and took some photos to show what the development will one day look like!
They have a both phase one and two on display for purchasers to see. Phase 2 stands out against the dark cladding of phase one. The three glass towers are made from an array of white cladding and glass.
I love the way the two colours contrast each building yet at the same time the glass pulls the two together! There is no model unit set up at the sales centre but two vignettes of both the kitchen and bathroom are available to see.
The open concept kitchens were designed by Saucier+Perrotte and come with stone countertops, and a kitchen island
(where shown). They also feature industrial-style single under-mount stainless steel sinks, with single lever chrome faucets. The backpainted glass backsplash also has custom valence lighting under the cabinetry. Five brand-name Energy Star® stainless-steel appliances are included in the purchase price and consist of a frost free refrigerator, self-cleaning slide-in stove, 18” or 24” dishwasher, over-the-range microwave, and an all-in-one condensing washer-dryer!
The bathrooms vanities were also designed by S+P with vessel sinks, stone countertops and contemporary single-lever faucets. The medicine cabinets are also custom designed and feature back-lit medicine cabinets with a sliding mirror.
Can’t wait for the launch of Monde Condos? Me neither! Thankfully, we have some new renderings to keep us excited until the official launch. The latest release includes more exterior renderings and as a special treat…our first look at the amenities and interior living space!
This is our first preview into what the kitchens will one day look like. The appliances looked tucked away from sight and built in to the kitchen space. The island doubles as a dinner table and prep area!
I’m liking the large “green wall” in the lobby! One City Hall installed something similar, and it’s always an eye catcher when showing units at the condo. Read the rest of this entry »
The fall pre-construction market has brought us a ton of new condos, all over the City! We’ve seen launches such as 3018 Yonge to the North, B Street in the Annex, The Carlaw and River City in the West Donlands and Leslieville neighbourhoods… but nothing in the East Bayfront Area. Thanks to Great Gulf Homes, all that is about to change with the launch of Monde Condos.
The Developer brought in the world renowned architect Moshe Safdie to design Monde. You may have never heard of him before, but I can almost gaurentee you’ve seen his work. Mr. Safdie first became known for is design at Habitat 67 in Montreal. He is also the man behind the National Gallery of Canada, Vancouver Library Square, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and the newly updated Terminal 1 at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. I’m certain the Monde will one day be added to his legacy of accomplishments as well… It will also be the first residential project by Moshe Safdie in Canada since his landmark Habitat ’67 in Montreal. Watch him and the Great Gulf team discuss the project.
River City Phase 2 will feature approximately 240 loft style spaces… along with a small collection of double storey Loft houses! As highlighted above, the Loft Houses will be on the ground level Phase 2 and will extend along the base of the three glass towers.
They will be located on the East side of the development over looking the Don River and each will have it’s own “mud room”! Based on the rendering above, it appears that only nine of these Loft Houses will be made available. I currently have early access to prices and floorplans for the phase two and am expecting more to be released about the Loft Houses towards the end of October. Read the rest of this entry »
