For many Toronto pavement-pounders, there comes a point when living in the downtown core just doesn’t make sense the way it once did.
At this point, the lure of Toronto’s bustling city centre begins to fall second to qualities like space, family-friendliness, and a slightly slower pace. At the same time, today’s connected young professional doesn’t want to stray too far from the city lights – even if the downtown office may no longer be a reality. Nor do they want to kiss an urban lifestyle goodbye once strollers become a household staple.
That’s where Leaside – in its green space and retail-filled glory – comes into play.
Known for its upscale living and family-friendliness, the rapidly changing neighbourhood is now home to an assortment of exciting new and future condo and townhome developments.
Many of these have opened up options for sophisticated, but accessible, living spaces in the highly coveted neighbourhood -- the most exciting of which is the master-planned community of Upper East Village.
Construction is currently underway on the luxury Camrost Felcorp Inc. project, which will feature spacious condos and townhomes in a convenient and leafy enclave at Brentcliffe Rd and Eglinton Ave. East.
In three separate brick and glass buildings, Upper East Village will house a total of 514 upscale units. Regardless of the unit, common themes include thoughtful design features, contemporary finishes, and indulgent lifestyle amenities.
Catering to growing urban families who want the luxury of maintenance-free living, the development will feature large, elegant units with two and three bedrooms, while expansive, three-story townhomes offer space and privacy, and are complete with front yards on a tree-lined boulevard. Each sleek home offers no shortage of outdoor space, with balconies off both the master bedroom and the second-floor bedroom.
The development also shines in its amenity offerings, with features that include a fitness/yoga centre, indoor pool, spacious party room, rooftop terrace with BBQs, a half-acre park with outdoor gardens, a fire pit lounge, and well-curated retail space. More than simply a luxurious place to call home, however, Upper East Village will offer an entire urban community at a time when the concept is arguably more important than ever.
For many, this is the project’s major draw.
The pristine park will serve as the heart of the community, which will span over three blocks. And retail space will anchor the development in the north.
Think of Upper East Village as a vibrant Trinity Bellwoods for those who have outgrown the downtown scene, but are looking for somewhere that offers the same appeal of trendy local boutiques, restaurants, fitness facilities, and cafes. Accounting for changing life stages as well, Leaside is close to some of Toronto’s best private and public schools, spacious trail-filled parks, and indoor recreation centres like Sky Zone Trampoline Park.
Best of all in the location department, Upper East Village is just steps from the soon-to-be-completed shiny new Eglinton Crosstown LRT Laird station, making access to downtown via public transportation speedier than ever. With the development now 80% sold (just four townhomes remain), the time to get into this talk-of-the-town urban community is now.
