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 »

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 »

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 ...

Decorate with Decorium for 30 per cent off at West Village

For many home buyers, especially first-timers, moving into the new home is a time to buy new furnishings to go with it. If it is your first home, chances are you don’t even own a dining suite, a decent sofa, coffee table, lamps or even a bed. Or perhaps the furniture you have just doesn’t go with the new place, and it’s time for a whole new look. Of course, acquiring these items new can be a major expense at a time when you may already feel stretched. To help lighten the load, Tridel has teamed with Toronto home furnishings supplier Decorium. Two model suites at Tridel’s brand new West ... Read More »

Amid rising prices, shifting priorities, condos still the affordable option

It can’t be easy for buyers trying to break into Toronto’s real estate market, not with prices rising as fast as they are. If you don’t find what you’re looking for this week, by next week prices will have gone up again. You don’t want to rush in and buy something just for the sake of buying, but on the other hand, how much can you realistically afford? The longer you take to search, the more you’re going to pay. The Bank of Montreal’s latest Fall Home-buying Report shows just how serious the problem is for many buyers. More than half (57 per cent) of people who are hunting for ... Read More »
