The Hill Condominiums has a lot more in store for it’s inside, than I previously wrote about it’s change on the outside! I attended a very intimate dinner hosted by the broker in-charge of sales and The Hill and got a first hand look at what the building will offer!
The Hill will contain a total of 9 stories and will be home to only 93 suites! On the Eglinton side, residents will have a protected view of the beautiful upper Forest Hill homes and there large lush trees. To the south units will step back and offer great views of the nearby ravine and downtown skyline! The large terraces will also make for the perfect backdrop to a summer BBQ. Suites will feature gas hookups!
Residents will come home to an onsite concierge and 24 hour security service. There will be an entertainment lounge along with a private dining room and outdoor BBQ. For those expecting guests for the night, there will be one furnished guest suite available (something not seen to often in a boutique building)! Read the rest of this entry »
Zài Jiàn China House Restaurant (that’s “good bye” in Mandarin Chinese)… and a big heeeeeeello to The Hill Condominiums! The old China House Restaurant at 925 Eglinton Ave West has closed it’s doors to make way for The Hill Condominiums by the BSaR development group (think 12 Degrees at Beverley and Queen St. West).
According to a City of Toronto development application, the developer plans to build a new 9 storey multi use building with 3 levels of below grade parking. They’d like to have 94 residential units with 1000 sq m of retail space on ground on the ground floor. The existing 2 storey building (China House) is to be demolished to make way for the new condo that will be built on properties 925-935 Eglinton Ave. W.
I live a few blocks away from the development, so I took a walk over to see how things are coming along! There wasn’t much to see except for a “Bolt” sign on the boarded up entrance of the Restaurant. To many, this may not mean much but to those familiar with Bolt’s work…it’s a great sign of things to come. If you enjoy eating as much as me, there’s a good chance you’ve seen some of Bolts work at places like Giancarlo Trattoria on Clinton and College, or AME on Mercer St. I’m guessing they’ve been hired to design the sales centre for The Hill and if so, it should be exciting to see what they come up with!
Core Architects are the team behind the design for the The Hill and had the following to say about it on it’s website: “This mid-town condo features extensive terracing at the rear of a strong retail presence on Eglinton. The podium will evoke a traditional masonry building feel, while the glazed condo is more modern.”
