Groundbreaking ceremony at 101 Erskine condos from Tridel

Tridel announced this week that preparations for construction are now underway on its mid-town condos, 101 Erskine. The architectural, engineering and construction drawings are finalized, says the announcement, and the excavation equipment has arrived on site. The official groundbreaking ceremony has taken place. From an urban planning perspective, important both for those who intend to live in a particular neighbourhood and for those who may consider investing in it, 101 Erskine is extremely well located. The Yonge and Eglinton neighbourhood is a textbook example of good mixed use development. Erskine Avenue itself has a long-standing mix of single-family dwellings and apartment buildings. Both Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue provide a rich ... Read More »

Toronto waterfront has fastest Internet access in country

Toronto’s waterfront now has the fastest broadband network in the city and one of the fastest in the world. The infrastructure has been built, and new buildings within the developing waterfront area, both commercial and residential, will be able to enjoy speeds of up to 500 mbps. That is about thirty times faster than the current average speed (16.5 mbps according to Ookla) in Canada. The fibre-optic capacity is there to deliver 1 gigabit, or even 10 gigabits if required. The head of Waterfront Toronto, John Campbell, called 500 mbps service a “game changer” for Toronto’s economic growth. It will change the way businesses and consumers use the Internet. From ...

New Aquavista waterfront condos from Tridel

Aquavista at Bayside from Tridel and Hines (rendering). The new condo is the second residential development, after the highly successful Aqualina, in the new Bayside community on Toronto's waterfront.

In June of 2013, Toronto condominium developer Tridel Corp. and real estate developer Hines International officially revealed plans for the first residences to be built at the new Bayside community on Toronto’s waterfront. Aqualina at Bayside, a condominium community designed by architectural firm Arquitectonica, will rise on the waterfront location bounded by Sherbourne Common, a new Waterfront Promenade, a new road called Merchants’ Wharf, and Queen’s Quay Boulevard. The new neighbourhood of East Bayfront will contain 3 million square feet of residential and commercial space, all on the water’s edge. As Tridel vice president of sales and marketing, Jim Ritchie, commented at the time, “There are few condominium locations which ... Read More »

Grand opening: luxury living at Sherwood at Huntington

Toronto home buyers in the market for luxury condominiums have a stately new building to tempt them. Tridel and partner Concert have announced the grand opening of Sherwood at Huntington, a sister community to Blythwood at Huntington.

The eight-storey building is designed in traditional style, with verandah-like balconies, elegant wrought iron railings, large windows and many sophisticated features. The combination of formal landscaping around the building and its natural ravine setting give the property a distinctive country estate atmosphere. As befits a luxury home, Sherwood at Huntington will take its place in ... Read More »

Three-bedroom condos? Tridel has them

City councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam was on the CBC television news last night calling for condo developers to build more condos that are large enough for families with children. She represents the Toronto Centre-Rosedale ward, which includes long stretches of some of the most densely developed streets in the city—Avenue Road/Queen’s Park, Bay, Yonge, Church, Jarvis. What she wants to see is builders offering a range of housing, and three-bedroom apartments is one option she’d like to see. Given that Toronto is becoming more and more a city of condo dwellers, particularly in the downtown core, it only makes sense that builders build what people need. The vast majority of condos ...
