  7. 7. 8 Peter Clewes. An In-Depth Conversation With The Man Who Is Changing Toronto’s Skyline. By John Bentley Mays Photographed by Paul Casselman
  8. 8. 9
  9. 9. 10 ince the start of Toronto’s residential real-estate boom a decade ago, the city’s new condominium schemes have come packaged in two basic styles. One kind of building, which the designers want to look old, is encrusted with antique historical ornaments and details that harken back to some vanished age of elegance and posh respectability, usually European. The other- the kind of tower created by MYC architect Peter Clewes- is unabashedly new. Historical references are kept to the minimum or avoided altogether. The designer takes his cues, not from the past, but from the contemporary North American city’s gleam, swing and prodigious vitality, and seeks to respond creatively to the facts and forces in the urban landscape. Clewes’ MYC promises to be a solid, successful example of the second of these two design modes. The glass façades of its sleekly modern tower will shine by day and glow softly at night, marking the intersection of Merton and Yonge streets. The project’s windows will open toward all the urban conditions that surround it: residential Merton Street and the Yonge Street corridor, the Kay Gardner linear park (site of a Victorian beltline railway) and the beautiful wooded expanse of Mount Pleasant Cemetery. But as I learned during a conversation with Clewes at the downtown offices of his firm, architectsAlliance, the architect intends MYC to do more than become a graceful exclamation point at an important intersection. He’s got the regeneration of a street in mind. The physical site itself which slopes away south down Yonge Street and along Merton Street suggested interesting possibilities to Clewes’ imagination. “On the Merton side, rather than having vestigial spaces that back onto the street, we recognized that it’s a residential street and we should speak to that. We have front doors on the street and a series of townhouses that follow the topography of the street. It will be a little bit like houses in San Francisco, which also step down hillsides. At MYC, the ceiling heights get bigger as you go down the street, with a 15-foot ceiling at the west end.” In addition to physical context, the social environment was a factor in Clewes’ thinking about how the various pieces of MYC should be laid out. Neighbours on the north side of Merton had long enjoyed uninterrupted views of the cemetery. In talks with these residents, Clewes found them to be reasonable and well aware that the south side would eventually be redeveloped. “They didn’t sit there and stamp their feet,” Clewes recalls. “They only said it would be very much appreciated if we could take their concerns into account. So, starting with these comments, we located the tower toward the western edge of the property, which was a neighbourly thing to do. I see this building as very quiet, respectful. It’s a comfortable thing, and it won’t be overbearing. I think it should sit there quite handsomely. That’s what we’re trying to do.” The challenge facing every thoughtful condominium architect is how to maintain that respectful demeanour in a building, while making it a unique statement in the urban landscape. In his reply to this challenge, Clewes has taken an imaginative approach to both the form and the handsome skin of MYC. “The tower is meant to respond to Yonge Street, to be a beacon as you rise up from the south. And the slightly skewed angle of Merton’s intersection with Yonge Street prompted us to take the tower and skew it, and that’s how we ended up with this parallelogram shape. We’ve also come to the conclusion that the most urbane, the most logical design for a tower the one that yields the most amenity for those who live in it is a building that has wrap-around balconies. They create an intermediary between the home-owner and the environment. We’ve taken those balconies, and we’ve been a little bit playful with them, with some jigs and jogs. They’re almost soft. In this building, we’re looking for an individualized expression.” Bringing a strong sense of artistic identity to his buildings, while working within the requirements of big-city developers, has been a key element in Clewes’ outstanding critical and professional success. That belief in architecture’s great capacity for cultural expression for creating a sense of place, for city building, for adding value to urban life-was born in him very early. Growing up in Montreal during the 1960s, he witnessed his home town emerging from European architectural influences and becoming a modern city with a modern, high-rise skyline. “Montreal was seizing the day, and there was some very exciting stuff going on. I just became fascinated with the craft and art of building. I remember my father taking me down to La Tour CIBC by Peter Dickinson. I was amazed, though I didn’t know why. But it was, in its day, an expression of the kind of economic power that Canada and Montreal had attained. It was a proud, self-assured building, a celebration.” (English-born Dickinson had been one of Canada’s most accomplished apostles of high-style Modernism at mid-century.) This early exposure to Modernism infected Clewes with a deep interest in the basics of architecture systems, structures, gesture that has never left him. “I have this natural curiosity, and I’m fascinated by the way things work,” he told me. “Doing architecture also involves artistic sensibility. And I’m also a problem solver.” Given his native talents and early interests, it’s hardly surprising that Clewes turned into an architect with deep creative roots in the Modern Movement of the twentieth century. And, indeed, his practice today is imbued with the spirit of classic architectural Modernism, its humanistic, liberal approach to problem-solving, its scepticism about historical styles. “Modernism,” he believes, “is an honest starting point in architecture, with honesty in the idea of materiality, in the way buildings are put together. It has an obsession about being commodious, highly amenable. You don’t get encumbered by the architectural vocabulary of another era.” The Modernists of the last century could be imperious and exacting in what they demanded of themselves, and you hear a hint of that old-school attitude when Clewes describes what the best contemporary architects, including himself and his office, should do and be. S
  10. 10. 11 “They’re people who explore architectural form and materiality in a very unique way. They take a project and explore some aspect of it that has never been tried before. It’s almost an experiment: How can we take a box and give it a sense of material presence in its location? They research materials and cladding systems, they play with shapes, they’re inventive. I would like our office to take particular projects and explore them in a new, experimental way to address building form, its relationship to the street and public space, and the use of materials.” “What I would like to do is explore a little more exuberance, to create these moments in the skyline that are interesting. They don’t have to be tall. Fifteen years ago, I had this obsession with doing beautiful, tall, slender buildings. The power of such buildings is in their proportions. But what else can we do?” MYC is an eloquent answer to this question. As envisioned by its architect, the project will hold its own in the nearby city fabric with confidence and gravity. It will not loom over the intersection. It will be original, but not odd. Though Clewes’ long experience makes crafting such a balanced building look easy, its creation has been part of his ongoing struggle to define an effective condominium style in a thriving commercial environment that makes architectural originality anything but easy. “It’s a real privilege to build in this city, and I believe that developers have an obligation to think about what’s in it for the city, beyond the obvious stuff. As architects, we need to cajole and coerce our clients into doing better, investing more in the building.” But if the look of their new Toronto towers is too often routine and uninspiring, the developers are making one very important contribution to the city: density. “Toronto’s a lot better off because of that. There’s a vitality on the street you didn’t see fifteen years ago. Increasing density is the basic thing that Toronto is getting right.” Spend any time at all with Peter Clewes, 53, and you discover a high-performance architect at mid-career, pitching at the top of his game, who is committed to getting right, and keeping right, his own part in the complex process of transforming Toronto’s skyline. He takes little time off, devoting a few weekend hours to meditation and, in summers, a few days to sailing his 35-foot racing boat, a collector’s item designed by Philippe Starck. “I am constantly looking for peaceful distractions,” he says. But meditate and sail as he may, Clewes’ heart clearly belongs in architecture and his Modernist art’s endless possibilities. “I want our buildings to evolve, to become better and more interesting, more responsive, more beautiful. I’ve been making a conscious effort to make architectsAlliance a better design office, to push things farther in the work we do. That’s not saying everything we do will be iconic work. It means that every project will have something special about it. We are dreaming with our buildings, loosening up.” I want our buildings to evolve, become better and more interesting, more responsive, more beautiful.

  21. 21. 22 Follow the 4.5 kilometre, 19th century steam railway line route through the wooded hills and valleys of midtown Toronto from Mount Pleasant West, skirting sections of Merton Street, then up over Yonge Street and down into the more heavily wooded trails of Forest Hill and you will be transported in more ways than one. The Kay Gardner Beltline Park is popular with individuals, couples and families, by themselves or with their dogs, sharing it with joggers, bicyclists, bird watchers and, during the winter, cross-country skiers and snowshoers or people who crave the quiet beauty of a woodland trail and snow-laden trees. This is country in the city. Mike Filey, a Toronto historian, explains that the Toronto Belt Line Company was formed by local businessmen in 1889, who were eager to develop land in what were then sparsely populated outlying suburbs. Rail commuter service began in July 1892 and ended when the tracks were removed for use in manufacturing arms for the First World War. In 1972, the city eventually acquired this long abandoned rail line and in 2000 renamed it to honour Kay Gardner, the city councillor who was instrumental in the acquisition of the line and its connection to the Discovery Walks string of trails throughout the city. Today The Kay Gardner Trail is enjoyed by all who travel its length. It’s where nature and urbanism intersect. It’s a treasure waiting to be discovered.
  22. 22. 23
  23. 23. 24 HERE’S THE ROUTE: Belt Line Linear Park Follow this 4.5km recreational trail along the route of the 1890s Belt Line commuter steam railway which once circled the city. The tree-lined trail links neighbourhood parks and open spaces, providing an important natural corridor for wildlife movement across the city and connecting with Toronto’s Don River Valley. Enjoy the trail year round by walking, jogging, cross-country skiing, birding and appreciating nature. Mount Pleasant Cemetery This cemetery, dating from 1876, was designed as an arboretum for the public to enjoy. Today, admire its spectacular floral and horticultural features, which provide a quiet oasis in the heart of Toronto. As well as containing one of North America’s finest collections of trees. Don Valley Brickworks Opened in 1889, the well known quarry and brick plant have been a source of brick for many of Toronto’s most famous historic architectural sites. Look for the exposed sediment layers in the cliffs of the quarry, which are one of the best locations on the continent for scientists to study the geological past. Explore this recently restored site which combines many of the goals of urban resources management, including protecting a significant geological feature, improving water quality, enhancing wildlife habitat and linking trails, all in a strategic section of the Don River Valley. The Brickworks is now the site for a weekend farmers market. Enjoy. Ravines of the Don Valley Escape the bustle of the city exploring interconnected Moore Park, Park Drive and Vale of Avoca ravines. These natural areas and their streams provide a haven for wildlife, including chipmunks, rabbits, raccoons, skunks, snakes, frogs, many bird species, and even deer. Today, municipal by-laws protect these ravines and the city is restoring much of the vegetation. This walk is approximately 11km long with a walking time of about 3 hours (minimum). If you walk this route at a brisk pace, you will burn approximately 600 calories. Enjoy this discovery trail at different times of the year. You’ll be surprised and delighted by how much it changes from season to season. STARTING AT MYC YOU CAN GO EITHER NORTHWEST ENDING AT THE EGLINTON EAST SUBWAY STATION, OR SOUTHEAST, THROUGH MOUNT PLEASANT CEMETERY AND CONNECT TO THE DON VALLEY BRICKWORKS AND THE DON VALLEY DISCOVERY TRAIL. CHECK IT OUT.

  28. 28. 29 Maria Athanasoulis, the lively young Vice President, Marketing + Sales at Cresford Developments, speaks her mind on high-fashion décor, ceiling heights, entertaining spaces, kitchen layouts and other trends in the condo biz. BY DAVID LASKER MODEL SUITE PHOTOGRAPHY BY TED YARWOOD
  29. 29. 30 MARIA ATHANASOULIS, IS THE ENERGETIC VICE PRESIDENT, MARKETING AND SALES AT CRESFORD DEVELOPMENTS, THE TORONTO-BASED BUILDER OF CONDOMINIUM COMMUNITIES. Our meeting takes place in the sleekly contemporary model suite at Cresford’s NXT at Windermere by the Lake on the Queensway near High Park. She’s perched on the edge of a robin’s-egg blue, retro-Deco, circular Fendi Casa lounge chair, looking sleekly contemporary herself. From the bas-relief “F”s protruding from the background of the ivory Fendi Casa carpet under the cordovan to the circular Fendi Casa nesting coffee tables you can see she has branded the environment with her fashion consciousness. Maria gestures expansively as she opines on architecture, floor layouts, price points, prime locations, social trends and other topics pertaining to her deep and abiding passion, the condo business. Casa, in Toronto’s high fashion Bloor/Yorkville neighbourhood, was her first endeavour in marrying a high profile fashion brand to condominium marketing. With furnishings provided by Armani Casa, the development, on Charles Street East, was an overwhelming success. The model suite at Casa won the “Best Model Suite Award,” at the 2006 BILD Awards and was the impetus for Maria to broaden her fashion horizon, and Fendi Casa was in her sights. Landing the Fendi Casa brand for Cresford’s NXT and NXT2 condominiums, on the Queensway at High Park, was the resulting coup and her inspired reality in the presentation centre and model suite at NXT proves her instincts were right on target. As The Toronto Star recently wrote of NXT, “There’s Fendi in the lobby, Fendi in the bathroom, Fendi at suppertime. Heck, there’s even Fendi in the spa room by the pool.” The NXT tie-in—her idea, marks the Canadian debut of Fendi Casa, the lifestyle furnishings and accessories spinoff of the high-end Italian fashion line. “Attaching ourselves to fashion labels was unique for Toronto, but I think our condominium market and our city have evolved to the point that they deserved it,” she says. Her timing was exquisite because the presentation centre’s Fendi-filled opening party created quite a buzz, with National Post breathlessly reporting it as a key social event for an “under-30 cartel” that was “cosmopolitan and dripping cool…. Future NXTers washed down their champagne with sapid slivers of tuna sashimi and mascarpone mocha cheesecake, care of [celebrity] chef Mark McEwan.” Athanasoulis clears her throat. “Our tagline is, ‘Your life. Your style,’” she says. “Yes, developers can say that they are building to complement people’s lifestyles, but can they prove it? Adding a fashion label to the amenity spaces and lobbies defines the NXT lifestyle experience the moment you walk through the front door. Your lobby and amenity spaces really are your front door. NXT owners truly appreciate the luxury of Fendi Casa. It adds to the value and enjoyment of their home.” “Attaching ourselves to a fashion label was unique for Toronto, but I think our condominium market and our city have evolved to the point that they deserved it.”

  31. 31. 32 soon find out that her travels are often her source of inspiration. Wherever she roams, she studies her new surroundings, seeking out useful lessons in urban planning. In Paris, for instance, she chanced upon L’Institut du Monde Arabe by superstar architect Jean Nouvel. A short walk from Notre Dame Cathedral, it’s centuries away in style with its five storey-high façade that reinterprets traditional Arab latticework screens in Modernist glass and steel. “I was impressed by how well it integrates into the old neighbourhood,” she recalls. Nouvel’s structure remains an inspiration, in her mind’s eye, when considering design possibilities for new Cresford projects. Cresford builds long, low ones as well as tall, skinny ones, especially now that Toronto’s master plan encourages “densifying” main streets so that they are flanked by midrise developments rather than one-or-two-storey strip malls and duplex houses. For MYC, she worked with Peter Clewes, a partner at architectsAlliance and Toronto’s stellar condo architect, to devise an out-of-the-ordinary floorplate for MYC (Merton Yonge Condominiums), a new development in the Yonge/Davisville area. The acronym deliberately puns on “NYC” to convey the project’s sense of New York style. “A two-storey lobby will give it that ‘Wow!’ factor,” she says. The building will rise on the last piece of land on Merton Street with gorgeous views to the south, overlooking leafy Mt. Pleasant Cemetery and its breathtaking displays of fall foliage. “MYC had a unique building envelope to work with, so it was a challenge to make the interiors work at first.” But work they do. She and I reviewed the floor plans and they too have that “Wow!” factor. What, then, about the next “big thing” in condo trends? She identified not just one but three: media rooms, great entertaining spaces and the in-line kitchen. I
  32. 32. 33 As well, there are fabulous contemporary townhomes and an amenity area that is more “Jetson” than midtown Toronto. All-in- all, a building that will be a landmark as you go north from St. Clair on Yonge Street. What, then about the next “big thing” in condo trends? She identified not just one but three: media rooms, great entertaining spaces, and the in-line kitchen. “People love to entertain at home and host movie parties. So our amenity areas support those activities.” MYC, for example, will be fully equipped with a state of the art theatre, complete with theatre style seating. Residents will be able to enjoy a night at the movies with friends, right at home. “All of our projects also include some type of fantastic entertaining space or stylish lounge. Always equipped with catering kitchens,” she explains. As for kitchen configurations, she confides, “The traditional L-shaped kitchen uses space inefficiently [think of the space- wasting lazy Susan tucked away in the corner cupboard]. I prefer a straight kitchen, which makes room for a dining table or an optional island.” This all sounds to good to be true but after talking to Maria, seeing the plans, the amenities and photographs of the amazing views I could be very close to giving up my little patch of backyard green for this kind of lifestyle.
  33. 33. 35 THE VILLAGE PEOPLE TORONTO HAS LONG BEEN WIDELY ADMIRED AND IDEALIZED AS A MODEL URBAN VILLAGE FOR ITS DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER AS A “CITY OF NEIGHBOURHOODS.” THIS DEFINITION IS, IF ANYTHING, MORE ACCURATE TODAY, GIVEN THE PRESERVATION OF ARCHITECTURALLY CHARMING HOUSES ON TREE-LINED STREETS, AND THE DIVERSITY OF PEOPLE AND AMENITIES THAT MAKES UP THE TAPESTRY OF EACH COMMUNITY. DAVISVILLE VILLAGE, THE NEIGHBOURHOOD BORDERED BY MERTON STREET, EGLINTON AVENUE, YONGE STREET AND BAYVIEW AVENUE, IS SUCH A PLACE. Life In The Big City. By Al Warson Photographed by Di Shuter
  34. 34. 36
  35. 35. 37 The southern edge of this vibrant midtown community is Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Opened in 1876, its manicured lawns and quiet winding roadways have provided area residents, and others, an ideal place to jog, cross-country ski or enjoy a leisurely walk. The Kay Gardner Beltline, a 4.5km trail that’s now maintained as a permanently open, all-season walking, jogging, cross-country ski trail. (See article on page 20). Davisville Village, named after John Davis, who emigrated to Canada from Britain in 1840, and was active in public and business life in the area (he started a pottery- making enterprise, among other ventures), was always a popular place to live. Its desirability as a community became more popular in the early 1970s, when families, young couples, singles and professionals, wanted to live closer to downtown. Then, as now, Davisville Village had everything they craved-notably, close proximity to the Yonge Street subway line and bus routes, schools, parks, shopping, cafés, restaurants and the myriad of other urban amenities that add up to great place to live. This is a neighbourhood loaded with charm and ambience. On every street and on every corner. Friendly people, friendly places. That’s what makes a village. What’s not to love. The welcome mat’s always out.
  36. 36. Perhaps the most revealing barometer of a community’s popularity is the price people will pay to live there. When a house sells for $1.5 million in DavisvilleVillageinToronto,youknowtheneighbourhood is upscale – adding a modern day reality to its historic charm and urban sophistication. Elizabeth Kady has sold houses in the Village since 1977 and when asked about changes in the housing spectrum, she says: “Since the 1980s custom-built infill homes replaced smaller detached and semi- detached houses originally built in the 1920s and 1930s. These new homes continue to attract buyers to the neighbourhood. “ “In more recent years, condos have been successfully built and sold, from Mount Pleasant west to Yonge Street, to people who like being a short walk from the subway, restaurants and night life, shops, gourmet food and excellent antique stores, parks, tennis courts and other recreational facilities,” she says. What has that done to housing prices? “A house selling for about $55,000 in the mid-1970s is now selling for $580,000 or more,” says Kady. “One home sold for more than $1.5 million.” She also notes that Davisville Village has Forest Hill, Rosedale and Lawrence Park, among the most expensive residential real estate areas in the city, as neighbours. Sharon Harris, a semi-retired school teacher, and her spouse Jay Rahn have lived in a semi-detached townhouse, at Yonge and Eglinton since 1985. “People come from all over the city to this area. It’s a very popular neighbourhood with a lot of fabulous restaurants serving every kind of cuisine, wonderful little stores, interesting home décor shops and boutiques. Even a doll shop,” she says. They don’t miss the absence of big box stores and even prefer to shop at small greengrocers’ stores and manageable local supermarkets that are within walking distance. “You can walk to everything and it’s pedestrian friendly,” says Harris, “With a genuinely village-like feeling to it, and neighbours taking a real interest in each other.” There’s just so many great restaurants in and about Davisville Village, other communities often get jealous. The Art Shoppe, Ethan Allen and about a million more ways to get the décor you want in the neighbourhood. Eat your heart out. Furnish the nest.
  37. 37. There’s great shops in the neighbourhood featuring the ordinary and the extraordinary. At Davisville and Mt. Pleasant “love is always in the air.” Bag a bargain. Tennis anyone? She further says: “The village serves every age, from a children’s nursery school on Merton, to retirement homes, a storefront library and even a deli featuring live jazz. The cemetery is wonderful for walking and we watch baseball games in the large park on Mount Pleasant at Davisville, which also, by the way, has six tennis courts.” As for a general comment on the way the residential nature of the Village is evolving, she says, “The old houses are not being torn down as frequently as before, but are being renovated instead. That’s fine. I like the mixture of new and old.” There is nothing quite like walking up Yonge, Bayview or Mount Pleasant, from Merton Street to Eglinton Avenue to get a real feeling for the lifestyle of Davisville Village. These main streets are alive with shops which sell all the essential goods anyone would want or need in their households. But the environment is pleasant, not oppressively commercial. There are nice touches too. Like a former live theatre, the Bayview Playhouse, now turned into a supermarket. A store that proclaims itself to be Canada’s first non-toxic cleaners. Two ”barber shops” a few doors apart with those old-fashioned twisting barber poles mounted out front. An Indian restaurant and a book store which specializes in Sherlock Holmes and other mysteries. There are two movie theatres now showing “art house” films or popular second-run movies and restaurants serving other ethnic cuisines. Cafés, bars and English- style pubs, many sporting outdoor patios bedecked with flowers and umbrellas, produce a festive atmosphere in warm weather months that is difficult to resist. The antique shops are among the best in the city and a large LCBO store is well-stocked; with an international selection of fine wine and spirits. On Yonge Street is the famously fabulous Grano Restaurant, a colourful, rustic-style Italian restaurant with an equally colourful patron, Roberto Martella. At his whim, Roberto hosts gatherings of prominent intellectuals, politicians and others at private functions to explore challenging issues and enjoy wine tasting and gourmet events. Just one of the many interesting people you’ll meet in the neighbourhood. Davisville Village is the quintessential urban village. It’s a great place to visit and an even better place to call home.

  39. 39. 42 TOWER POWER At Cresford, “Your life. Your Style,” is much more than a slogan. It’s a corporate commitment to design and build what our customers want. Cresford is an established residential developer with a reputation for consistently meeting and exceeding the condominium needs of their clients. In business for over 30 years, Cresford’s experience is vast. It’s the company’s respected knowledge of the industry, attention to today’s trends and focus on tomorrow’s visions that gives Cresford a well-recognized leading edge advantage. Committed to excellence, Cresford is driven to set new standards in quality and service, ensuring the highest attention to detail for every development. Cresford believes in doing things differently and doing things right – with an enthusiastic commitment to the homeowner, their life and their style. The Merchandise Building The mammoth one million square foot Sears distribution building on Dalhousie Street, in downtown Toronto, was one of Cresford’s most visible, residential projects. As this was one of the first major true condominium loft conversions in Canada, the development was also noteworthy in many ways. It was the first project to have five decorated model suites all located in one huge 100,000 sq.ft. presentation centre. Each model was decorated by a different designer, launching many of them onward to stellar careers. Namely, Brian Gluckstein, of Gluckstein Design. Anna Simone and Elaine Cecconi, of Cecconi Simone. Robert and Karen King of Norma King Design and, the now internationally acclaimed, George Yabu and Glen Pushelberg of Yabu Pushelberg. The development was honoured by The National Home Builders Association, in Washington, as the North American Condominium Project of the Year and as The Greater Toronto Home Builder’s Associations Project of the Year, it subsequently won numerous other project and marketing awards. The Merchandise Building raised the bar, in design and marketing for condominium development worldwide and was a huge success for Cresford. Thornwood This residential project was and is, totally different in style and attitude from the Merchandise Building. Thornwood, in Toronto’s prestigious Rosedale neighbourhood, showcased a refined elegance in architecture and design. Traditional in look and feel it attracted a clientele who appreciates life’s more sybaritic pleasures. Just steps from the refurbished Summerhill Railway Station (now a flagship LCBO and Vintages store) and the high end shops and restaurants of Yonge Street, Thornwood sits on a lushly landscaped garden back from the bustle of the street. Windermere By The Lake Another of Cresford’s landmark developments is Windermere By The Lake. Situated on the Queensway, between Lake Ontario and High Park, it afforded buyers the perfect location for a whole range of fabulous outdoor activities. Walking, jogging, riding, blading on the Martin Goodman Lakeside Trail, feeding the swans or Shakespeare-in-the- Park in High Park and swimming and sunbathing on Sunnyside Beach. Windermere is close to great shopping in Bloor West Village, Roncesvalles and on the Queensway and, as with other Cresford communities, it is right on the TTC streetcar line making access to downtown a breeze. Windermere By The Lake punctuates the western, edge of the city skyline with a chic glass and steel tower, curved to accentuate the rhythm of Humber Bay and reflect the sunlight off the lake. Surrounding this contemporary icon is a village of traditional brick and stone townhomes, beautifully landscaped, the perfect transition between the contemporary elegance of the tower and the established residential neighbourhood directly north of the site. Windermere By The Lake is now sold and fully completed.
  40. 40. Casa NXT/NXT2 Lofts 399BSN MYC Casa/BSN (Bloor Street Neighbourhood) On Charles Street, just east of Yonge in the fashionable Bloor/Yorkville neighbourhood, are two of Cresford’s most recent residential developments. Both virtually sold out and both now under construction, they represent the yin and yang of condominium-style living, located, as they are, directly across the street from each other. Casa is the epitome of contemporary living. Designed by architectsAlliance, it is a taught glass and steel tower with wrap-around balconies offering exceptional views in every direction. Interior furnishings are provided by Armani Casa. This alone makes Casa unique, but there’s more. Casa’s stunning fifth floor amenities area has European Style, an outdoor year-round heated pool and pool deck, an outdoor double-sided fireplace, and indoor and outdoor lounges. In 2006, Casa was honoured with “Model Suite of the Year” at the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) Awards. BSN (Bloor Street Neighbourhood) is Cresford’s second spectacular residential building on Charles Street. More traditional in style than Casa, it is reminiscent of the great pre-war, Park Avenue apartments in Manhattan. As with Casa, BSN is located in one of the city’s most desirable residential areas, one block from fashionable Bloor Street and even closer to the Bloor/Yonge subway station. BSN also has a wide selection of amenities for residents to enjoy. The area’s most fabulous private fully-equipped fitness and recreation club is right in your building. The Bloor Street Club also has an indoor pool, whirlpool, sun deck, Billiards Room, and Club Room. A Members’ Lounge and Dining Room with catering kitchen are available for guests who can stay in the fabulous guest suites. Move in now. NXT and NXT2 At the western gateway to Toronto, just east of the Humber River and north of the Gardiner Expressway, NXT and NXT2 will rise majestically over Lake Ontario. These stunning contemporary towers designed by architectsAlliance are the final phases of Cresford’s successful Windermere By The Lake community. NXT and NXT2 will be landmarks on the western skyline and a well- recognized beacon for boaters heading into the Humber Bay Marinas. The towers are joined by a glass-clad podium, housing the building’s amenities. Interiors throughout the development are provided by Fendi Casa and are reflective of the brand’s high-style, high-fashion Italian heritage. NXT and NXT2 are minutes from the Lakefront and High Park. They’re close to shops and downtown via the Gardiner, Lakeshore Boulevard or by the Queen streetcar which stops almost right outside the front door. Quad/Lofts 399 In the trendy Spadina and Adelaide area of downtown Toronto, at the heart of the city’s Fashion and Entertainment District, Cresford has completed two projects, Quad Lofts and Quad Lofts phase two. These two intimate buildings are soon to be joined by a third, Lofts 399, at 399 Adelaide Street West. When complete, this condominium enclave will be a special place in the city. The development will have an architectural integrity that complements its surroundings and a hidden garden already built by Cresford, enhanced with a reflecting pool and landscaping, makes a unique urban environment. MYC MYC – Merton Yonge Condominiums is the very latest project from Cresford. You can see and read just about everything there is to know about it in this issue. So take a moment, check out the great location, awesome architecture, some behind the scene stories about the people behind the development and more. Don’t miss a single word. In all their residential communities Cresford strives to build what their purchasers want. After all, it is… “Your life. Your style.”
  41. 41. 44 Catherine Mangos, a television producer, and her husband Donny, a real estate agent are the kind of young, in-the-know city dwellers that recently purchased a new condo from Cresford. Their new home at NXT, on the waterfront at High Park, was a little outside their epicentre of cool but the design by architectsAlliance and the furnishings by Fendi Casa tipped the scale. “I was worried at first when Donny suggested moving to the west end – almost to Etobicoke – it seemed far out of the city. But it’s really only five minutes to downtown on the Gardiner or Lakeshore,” says Ms. Mangos. There’s also the matter of the area. Minutes from Roncesvalles, Bloor West Village and the Queensway with good shopping, schools, restaurants and an established infrastructure. “Neighbourhood buying is a trend,” says Jane Renwick, executive vice-president of Urbanation, which tracks condominium activity in the city. “A lot of people buy a condo where traditional houses in an area are too expensive for first time buyers.” MYC (Merton Yonge Condominiums) shares the same provenance as NXT. Both are stylish, contemporary buildings, designed by architectsAlliance, both are located in desirable residential neighbourhoods with established shopping, restaurants, schools and parks, both are conveniently located next to major TTC routes and both are being developed and built by Cresford Developments. Right now Catherine and Donny Mangos are planning their move. Construction at NXT is well underway and, although occupancy is still a few years away, they’re looking forward, with happy anticipation, to their new home. First time fabulous. Catherine and Donny Mangos, new Cresford owners, celebrate the purchase of their new condo at NXT. “Neighbourhood buying is a trend.” Urbanation
