Come Home To A New Experience
This master-planned community follows a plan both vibrant and clever, capitalizing on the area’s proposed crosstown LRT. Crosstown, a 60-acre redevelopment at Eglinton Avenue East and Don Mills Road, is an ambitious project that will eventually include residential and commercial space, as well as extensive parkland, pedestrian walkways and a recreation centre.
Crosstown is set to transform a swath of land at 844 Don Mills Road. Aspen Ridge Homes is handling the project, which aims to create a dynamic, mixed-use intensification for the largely underutilized property.
In total, the development will add 4,921 residential units, comprising a mix of high-rise condominiums and urban townhomes. Over 60-million square feet of office space and 120,000-square feet of retail space will be added. The community’s proposal also calls for a state-of-the-art recreation centre, which will be located across from a 6-acre public park and house a hockey arena, indoor basketball courts and an indoor swimming pool. Designed with pedestrians in mind, a walkable main street will run through the community, featuring a central plaza, outdoor patio seating and a selection of boutique shops.
Crosstown is slated to include over 60 new buildings across its site, including partial retention of an existing heritage building. The majority of these will be low and mid-rise townhomes, with a cluster of 10 condominium towers situated around the LRT station. These towers will range from 15 to 44 storeys. In its entirety, the community will include 3,034 one-bedroom suites, 1,219 two-bedroom suites and 668 that include three or more bedrooms, with dimensions ranging from 530 square feet to over 1,000.
Additionally, office and retail buildings will be worked into the plan, completing a community where urban life and work are redefined. TACT Architecture and Giannone Petracone Associates Inc have been tasked with designing the buildings, so we can expect a contemporary and cohesive look with all the features one associates with modern condominium living. The globally-renowned Hariri Pontarini Architects has also joined the project and will primarily be handling the development's heritage aspects.
Along with the addition of over 4,000 underground parking spots and bicycle storage, the community will have an underground connection to the proposed Science Centre station on the LRT, a great perk for this transit-friendly neighbourhood.
A Place To Mingle With Neighbours And Foster A Sense Of Community
The Wynford-Concorde neighbourhood is a great location for Crosstown master-planned community. Minutes from the Aga Khan Museum, the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre and the Ontario Science Centre, it’s a culturally rich neighbourhood surrounded by enviable park access. These include a lush ravine network and Sunnybrook Park, which boasts 147 acres of sprawling lawns, walking trails, dog parks, even a horseback riding stable.
Besides the proposed LRT, it’s a great area for commuters, thanks to easy access to the Don Valley Parkway.
Master-planned communities make great places for those looking for an investment or income property. Considered the housing style of the future, they address the needs of today’s modern renters, who are increasingly looking for places where they can live, work, shop, entertain and relax all in one walkable community. Add rapid transit access and a selection of oasis-like parkland to the equation and you’ve got Crosstown.
