Alexandra Park revitalization now underway; SQ condos coming soon

A major neighbourhood revitalization project that could take up to fifteen years to complete is now officially underway. Demolition has begun at Alexandra Park, a 1960s-era housing development between Queen and Dundas streets, west of Spadina. When work is complete, the neighbourhood will have been completely redesigned, with existing housing replaced by new townhouses, apartments and condominiums. The area will also contain a new park, new retail space on Dundas Street and an expanded community centre. Condominium developer and builder Tridel is the city’s private partner in the redevelopment of Alexandra Park.

West end neighbourhood has it all, and it’s affordable

We hear a lot about the affordability of the Toronto housing market, mostly that it’s lacking. But an affordable home in a good area is what everyone is looking for. One such neighbourhood is Etobicoke West Mall. If that name is unfamiliar, the area is also known as Eatonville, an area defined by Highway 427, Burnhamthorpe Road and Bloor Street West. It’s the location of the old Etobicoke Civic Centre, which served as the former borough of Etobicoke’s city hall before the amalgamation of 1998. Measured by its accessibility by highway, Eatonville is definitely well situated. Highway 427, the major north-south artery in the city’s west end, runs through it, ... Read More »

Suites selling fast at stunning new SQ condos from Tridel

You don’t have to be an architect or an architecture critic to notice that a lot of Toronto’s buildings, especially the newer condo towers, are pretty boring to look at. Now, that may not matter much to a person or a couple looking for a decent place to live: as long as the building is well constructed, the suite well laid out, the price suitable, and all in an acceptable location, who cares what the building looks like from outside? It’s the inside that matters, right? Well, right-ish. Many writers on the subject make a strong link between the kind of architecture found in a neighbourhood and the quality of ... Read More »
