The countdown is on to the eagerly awaited Pan Am/Para Pan Games in Toronto, a driving force in the city’s summer excitement. In the June 16th Toronto Star, acclaimed architecture critic Christopher Hume praised the Athletes Village as a model of Canadian urbanism in the West Don Lands and the developer, Dundee Kilmer, for its “architectural aplomb” in creating a memorable neighbourhood. Once the games are over, their spirit will live on in the condominiums, facilities and public realm of Canary District, BILD’s 2014 Community of the Year.
Dundee Kilmer’s theme for the pedestrian-friendly community is health and wellness, and it gives new meaning to the phrase “live, work and play.” The neighbourhood features wide tree-lined walkways connecting a YMCA, George Brown College student residences, retail stores, cafés, restaurants and recreational services. Residents can also stroll to the shops and galleries of the recently restored Distillery District urban village.
Currently, Dundee Kilmer is selling Canary Park Condominiums + Townhomes, a mid-rise residence facing the new 18-acre Corktown Commons Park, which features a playground, amphitheatre, splash pad, pavilion and hundreds of trees. The residence is also situated where the new Front Street Promenade begins.
This is truly the opportunity of a lifetime. NOW is the time to explore your residential choices. The new Presentation Centre is located at 9 Mill Street, between Parliament and Cherry Streets. Visit www.canarydistrict.com or call 416-603-7576.
