Each of the two five-storey buildings of The Courtyards, in the heart of Cathedraltown, will contain residential suites and ground-floor commercial and retail units.
This exquisite community – just east of Highway 404 between Major Mackenzie Drive and Elgin Mills Road – is close to schools, shops, cultural and entertainment venues and major transportation hubs.
Bordering the Piazza that will surround the magnificent Cathedral of the Transfiguration, The Courtyards contain spacious one, two and three-bedroom and two-level condominium suites and ground-floor retail.
Groundbreaking for The Courtyards 1 is scheduled for September 2017, with occupancy expected in July 2019.
The suites have been uniquely designed to provide greater living space, more ensuite bathrooms and larger outdoor terraces than traditional condominium developments.
Each building of The Courtyards features a green roof and an elegantly landscaped and furnished courtyard – adjoining a loggia and recreation rooms – for the exclusive use of residents and their guests.
The 12 commercial and retail units that will occupy the ground floor of The Courtyards 1 will serve the residents of Cathedraltown and its surrounding area, with a population of approximately 70,000, living in family-oriented neighbourhoods.
The Courtyards 1 will be built by SKYGRiD Construction Inc., one of Ontario's highest regarded real estate construction companies.
Toronto-based SKYGRiD, founded in 2011, employs an innovative approach to condominium construction.
Unlike most builders, who use wood-framed construction for buildings of six storeys or less to cut costs, SKYGRiD uses steel and concrete materials, along with advanced building technology developed by iSpan Systems.
In addition to providing significantly enhanced sound privacy and long-term maintenance benefits, iSPAN's technology will also ensure that The Courtyards 1 will be built better, faster and simpler, while giving its future residents a higher-quality structure at a cost-effective price.
