A fresh perspective in modern condominium livingApril 27, 2017
While the real estate market in Toronto has continued to grow, a pocket just north of the city has remained a haven of peace and calm in the storm, retaining a strong sense of community, vibrant local business, and an exceptional quality of life. Introducing Westwood Gardens, a fresh perspective in modern condominium living, at 8868 Yonge Street, in Richmond Hill.
Nestled at the edge of an established neighbourhood where the stately homes have held strong in value for decades, Westwood Gardens will take shape. And as established residents look for more convenience and ease as they enter a new chapter in their life, and newcomers are charmed by the prime location, neighbourhood amenities, and excellent value, Colledev’s vision for this project will come to life in the form of a thriving community.
Brilliant architecture from Toronto-based Kirkor Architects includes two contemporary towers, rising from exquisitely landscaped gardens designed by Land Art Design. Kirkor’s vision for the project is in perfect alignment with that of Collecdev: realize transformative architecture through sustainable design. Create a site that will fit seamlessly within the community, while, at the same time, offering something fresh and contemporary – an evolution in the way we live.
Amenities are an homage to this modern perspective, boasting contemporary comforts and abundant opportunities to gather and entertain. The social spaces, while accessible to residents of both buildings, will form two distinct programs, finding their place according to the building’s character and unique location on the site. In the West building, offering unobstructed views of the Richmond Hill Golf Club and the established neighbourhood of Westwood, a collection of calming amenities will prevail, tranquil spaces that include a yoga studio, theatre, lounge/party room. In the East building, residents will feel the vibrant energy of the community, on the sports court or in a catering kitchen that would be the envy of any chef. In addition, the project will include a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a dog spa and an eco-friendly rainwater carwash. Residents of both buildings will appreciate the breathtaking Conservatory, designed to unite the community and celebrate nature.
Extraordinary architecture. Innovative suite design. Forward-thinking amenities. It would seem Westwood Gardens is a triple threat, but in fact this project has one more ace up its sleeve – an incredible Yonge Street location that will allow residents to stay connected to the things that matter most.
When they feel like a shopping trip there are the Yonge Street boutiques and the busy shops of Hillcrest Mall, including Sporting Life, H&M, Aritzia, Pandora, and a Hudson’s Bay anchor store that underwent a $125 million renovation in 2015. Dining options include myriad restaurants and cafes. GO and Viva Transit and the 407 and 400-series highways (as well as the future Yonge subway extension) create a network of transportation options connecting the community to the city with ease. There’s even a farmer’s market, a bi-weekly event that enhances the charming small town atmosphere of this thriving Toronto suburb.
As the city continues to expand, and buyers become savvier, demanding more innovative projects where lifestyle has been carefully considered, to offer convenience, community, and quality in one, Collecdev will lead the way. And Westwood Gardens will mark a new era in the modern world, where everything is possible and nothing is ordinary.
