You might be wondering, what makes this condo project stand out from the rest?
First, the long-term success of any new community depends on its multi-uses. The Frederick Condos will be a part of a multi-use community which means that there will be more than one residential tower and a plethora of retail and commercial amenities built for the community to enjoy.
Secondly, transit is significant when it comes to smart pre-construction condo investing. The Frederick Condos will rise just steps from Laird Station, making this living destination ideal for the millions of people who take public transit each day.
Lastly, the Frederick Condos is the third tower in the Upper East Village Master-Planned Community. This development, in particular, will be the tallest tower in the complex, reaching 30-storeys high and will offer 350 residential units.
These units will range from 1 to 2 bedrooms and are expected to offer open-concept layouts to make them appealing to anyone from young professionals to growing families.

A recent CBRE tech analysis wrote, "if we were to compare the annual average apartment rent with annual average tech-worker salary, tech salaries generally can cover the cost of living in even the most expensive markets, based on the affordability standard of 30% of income to housing".
Verde Living is the latest condominium project to provide affordable housing to meet the demand.
When it comes to the condo project itself, we anticipate luxurious open-concept layouts and large windows to let in ample natural sunlight. Each unit should also be provided with a balcony and terrace to provide its residents with maximum leisure space and scenic green views of the Laurentian Hills.
This area is becoming widely popular with investors and buyers alike as this area is booming with urban amenities and employment opportunities. These factors combined with this functional and convenient condominium make for a sound investment.
