In Toronto’s West Don Lands, the fabulous Canary District community is well under construction, and the site is a hotbed of activity. It is rare in our city that developers build before launching sales, but Dundee Realty and partner Kilmer Van Nostrand did just that. This visionary neighbourhood has certainly captured the imagination of both investors and end-users for numerous reasons, especially the community’s connection with the 2015 Pan Am & Parapan American Games.
If you are thinking of visiting the site to have a look, now is the perfect time, as the new Presentation Centre at 398 Front Street East is a sight to behold! As you walk up to it, you will notice how wide the community boulevard is and really gain an appreciation for the impact Canary District is having on the area. You will also realize why this community has such a high Walk Score® when you notice how many amenities are just steps away, and why it was chosen BILD’s 2014 Community of the Year – High-Rise!
One of the major draws to Canary District is its proximity to newly opened Corktown Commons park, which features a playground, amphitheatre, splash pad, pavilion and hundreds of trees! This fits well with the developers’ master plan, which promotes health and wellness. The pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood’s tree-lined boulevards and walkways will encourage residents to leave their vehicles at home. Just steps away, they will have a YMCA, George Brown College student residences, retail stores, cafés, restaurants, recreational services and other parks. The recently restored Distillery District is also just a brief stroll away.
Two LEED® Gold-certified buildings will house the athletes before being repurposed as a condominium residence. Sales thus far involve the spectrum of buyers from first-time, move-up, re-sizing and investors. The one, two and three-bedroom (some with dens) suites come with high-quality standard finishes. The newest building, Canary Park Condominiums, is attracting major attention.
