Take Hold of a Historic Opportunity at this New Downsview Park Build
Everyone loves an up-and-coming neighbourhood. They’re new, they’re exciting, and — unlike other famous corners of the city — you can still get into them.
Up-and-comers are perfect investments — once a neighbourhood is established as trendy and iconic, its prices skyrocket out of reach. With WestLine Condos, investors, first-time buyers, and downsizers alike have an enormous opportunity at a historic location, breaking ground right at the doorstep of Toronto’s largest masterplan.
Downsview isn’t just a neighbourhood, it’s an entire up-and-coming region of the GTA. Its potential was untapped for decades until transit infrastructure started connecting the dots north of Toronto’s core, now with the Sheppard West Subway Station, the Downsview Park GO Station, and the Finch West LRT due for completion in 2023.
Highway access, too, is just minutes away.
WestLine Condos drops right into the heart of the action, situated next to a 1,000-acre masterplan made up of 7 thriving communities— one of the largest redevelopment projects in the country, and the biggest masterplan in Toronto — that’s reimagining Downsview as a future urban centre. Higher education, world-class retail, thriving employment, and Downsview Park round out the aspirational lifestyle that will lure buyers and renters from across the GTA.
Places to learn and grow
Investors looking for a hot rental market, or parents looking to plan for children’s futures, have tremendous potential in WestLine.
York University regularly draws over 50,000 students from around the world, but can house only 6,000 in its own residences — leaving the majority of the student population in need of off-campus, transit-accessible accommodation. Call it kismet: York is just three transit stops, or a five-minute drive, from WestLine.
Seneca College, Humber College and Centennial College; these three higher-ed institutions bring tens of thousands more students, offering programs and practical learning in everything from arts to aviation. As with York, the demand for housing is huge.
These schools are internationally recognized for producing job-ready candidates in business, nursing and advanced-technology fields. And where will all those graduates go once they’ve pushed their cap’s tassel from the right side to the left?
The immediate area boasts major local and international employers as new jobs are drawn to this up-and-coming region, especially along the expanding transit lines. Transit connectivity brings exceptional access to downtown Toronto and its financial and employment centres — via GO Transit, just one stop to Union.
Behind the build
Cancelled projects? Zero. Days of interim occupancy? Zero. In the past 11 years since its inception, CentreCourt — the development company behind WestLine — has maintained an immaculate record for issues typically considered a nuisance (if not a nightmare) for buyers and investors.
CentreCourt’s structure as a vertically-integrated builder brings in-house teams together for land acquisition, sales, construction and customer relations. In 2020, they ranked as one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies and were recognized as a finalist for Tarion Highrise Builder of the Year.
With 19 projects brought to market, CentreCourt found its niche in properties close to amenities, transit networks and employment centres. These features all but guarantee rising values as future generations seek out urban lifestyles and vibrant communities to call home
On the design side, global design and architecture powerhouse IBI Group crafted WestLine’s striking and elegant exteriors, while Figure3 imagined its warm, polished interiors with inspiration drawn from a West Coast, Californian vibe. Both design firms are headquartered in Toronto; they’re teams that know the textures of this growing city.
Building amenities are as plush as you’d expect, with light-filled design, massive green terraces, fire pits and barbecues, dining and fitness and coworking spaces — all adding up to a full 12,000 square feet of amenities, inside and out. Meanwhile, the minutes-away Downsview Park offers residents an escape into refreshing green spaces with trails, forests, gardens, and ponds, as well as sports and events programming throughout the year.
Perhaps one of WestLine’s hottest perks? A Toronto address. As the whole Downsview area rapidly upscales into an urban playground — a truly transformative redevelopment — WestLiners will find themselves part of thriving, exciting, connected communities that are a short jaunt to the city’s downtown core.
With so many hot neighbourhoods built to the brim or priced for the super-rich, WestLine offers what so many want: a chance to get in.
