In a very hot residential market, with luxury retail at its doorstep, Canderel introduces Bayview at The Village, an upscale 10-storey boutique midrise with a rare offering of highly crafted residences in the heart of the Bayview Village neighbourhood.
Quiet residential streets, sports clubs, kid-friendly parks, prestigious schools and the lush green spaces of the East Don Valley parklands make the Bayview Village neighbourhood near Bayview and Sheppard one of Toronto’s most desirable, family-friendly pockets of the city. In 2020 alone, the average price of a condo and single-family home in the neighbourhood increased 8-10 per cent from the previous year with the average price of detached home rising above the city’s average.
Canderel’s Bayview at The Village is launching at a pivotal time, as there has been a lack of supply of new condos in this market for quite some time.
For the discerning brand enthusiast, high-end fashion retail, gourmet food and fine dining is the focus at Bayview Village Shopping Centre and is conveniently located across the street from Bayview at The Village. Proposed plans for the shopping centre’s renewal features a highly animated pedestrian-focused landscape with a central park and outdoor retail promenade with direct underground access to the TTC. Connected to the city at large, Bayview at The Village is also footsteps from Bessarion Subway Station and a quick drive to Highway 401 and Don Valley Parkway.
Driven by urban luxury, Bayview at The Village demonstrates a refined approach to midrise at Bayview and Sheppard. “It’s a project that fits into its context really well. To the north you have a very animated public realm and to the south you have a design that mimics the residential scale of the street,” says Barry Graziani, Principal of Graziani + Corazza Architects.
Along Sheppard Avenue, the building appears as seven storeys and stands apart with a high contrast façade with a black and white rectilinear pattern. On the quieter residential side, Urban Town units with private front gardens face Greenbriar Road and transition to townhouses that surround a new park. A modern retail frontage wraps around the northeast corner of the building and separates the more public-facing frontage on Sheppard Avenue from the private residential entrances.
With a robust portfolio in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, Canderel has a solid track record of creating mixed-use projects that bring immense value to neighbourhoods. “Bayview village is a thriving part of the city that is rich in urban amenities in a beautiful and well-connected part of the city. We wanted our project to be a reflection of the great energy and community spirit of this family friendly neighbourhood.” says Brett Miller, CEO of Canderel.
High attention to interior details, from the lighting to the wood paneling and artisanal millwork, is thoughtfully articulated by acclaimed design firm II BY IV DESIGN. Residents will be welcomed by a jewel box inspired lobby with a dramatic double height ceiling. Amenities, including a media room, a communal workspace, fitness centre and social/dining lounge, are designed with a warm palette of creams, browns and black. Soft accent lighting adds a feeling of calm elegance throughout. A lounge with a private dining area with rich Cognac colours is styled to feel like a private members’ club for intimate parties with families and friends.
“The intent behind the programming of the amenity spaces was to create opportunities for neighbours to come together and socialize in a sophisticated way,” says Dan Menchions, II BY IV DESIGN. “It is about the celebration of people coming together in a building they are proud to be part of.”
II BY IV took a modern European approach to the kitchen design with monolithic and monochromatic clean lines and porcelain tile slabs to create kitchens that blend harmoniously with furniture. Suite layouts designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects maximize living space, with no corridors or obstructing columns. Majority of the suites also have expansive private balconies or terraces with some reaching a depth of 6 feet; a rare find in buildings today.
As part of Bayview at The Village’s unique residential offerings, purchasers will also have the opportunity to combine suites into larger homes and work with Canderel’s design team to customize where possible. “We know there is a big need in Toronto for larger, more spacious condo units, especially for downsizers who are coming from larger homes and want to stay in the neighbourhood they love,” says Miller.
Bayview at The Village offers suites ranging from studios to three-bedroom suites from the mid $400’s and Urban Towns from $1M. To register visit www.canderelbv.com
