Spring is always an exciting season at Baker Real Estate Incorporated, as we help developers launch new condominiums while the earth is warming up and sunshine is with us longer each day. This year, hot on the heels of Core Condos, which launched in January and sold out in a weekend, our current and upcoming offerings are intriguing and diverse.

Dundas Square Gardens

Dundas Square Gardens

Recently opened, Dundas Square Gardens offers the opportunity to live in an incredibly convenient downtown location at Dundas and Jarvis Streets. Residents of this condominium by Easton’s Group (a Steve Gupta company) will be able to walk to an incredible number of amenities, attractions, hospitals, shops, restaurants, services and even Ryerson University. The Yonge Dundas subway is right there, and it’s a short stroll to Allan Gardens and Toronto Eaton Centre. Prices begin from an unbelievable $199,900. Visit www.dundassquaregardens.com.

Totem Condos

Totem Condos

Registrations are pouring in for Totem Condominium, a boutique building coming to Dundonald Street, close to Yonge, and offering direct access to the Wellesley subway. Talk about convenient! Residents can walk to Yonge, Yorkville, College Park, Yonge-Dundas Square, The Annex, two universities … need I say more? Actually, I will! Prices will begin from the mid-$200,000s for suites in this 18-storey luxury condo that will inject the area with iconic boutique architecture in the form of illuminated geometrically stacked boxes.  Visit www.totem-condos.com.

The Code Condos

The Code Condos

In late March, The Code Condos will make its appearance in prestigious Forest Hill Village. This 9-storey boutique condominium will sit at St. Clair Avenue West and Parkwood Avenue, across the street from Sir Winston Churchill Park and its flood-lit tennis courts, ravine trails, off-leash dog park and wide-open city views. Pet owners who take their dogs for walks in the park will come home to a dog spa right in their building. Terraced back from Forest Hill on the north, the condominium is a perfect home for those who love the outdoors yet want a more carefree alternative to low-rise living. BLVD Developments and Lifetime Developments have done a wonderful job with the plans for this building, which will include only 108 suites and 10 townhomes. Prices will begin from the mid-$200,000s, which is phenomenal for a residence so close to the St. Clair streetcar line and only a five-minute walk to the subway station. Visit www.thecodecondos.com.

Registrations are also being taken for Park Avenue Place, Solmar Development Corp.’s new condominium coming to Jane and Rutherford, across from spectacular Vaughan Mills, one of the largest shopping centres in Canada. This shopping mecca is like a mini city, with leading fashion and lifestyle brands from Calvin Klein to Michael Kors, eclectic dining options and world-class entertainment including the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre. There is truly something for all ages – and all ages will appreciate the opportunity to live in the one- and two-bedroom suites within walking distance. Visit www.parkavenueplace.ca.

In May, watch for the opening of The Upper House, a boutique building in Leaside that will offer two-storey townhomes and terraced suites. Prices will begin from the $300,000s. Developer Knightstone Capital Management invites you to “Enjoy the life you promised yourself.” Visit www.theupperhousecondos.com.

If any of these appeal, I suggest you “spring” into action and register NOW.
