New Corktown introduces new appeal to historic Toronto
Well-respected Longo Communities offers the rare opportunity to own a brand new rooftop terrace townhome in Toronto’s historic Corktown area. New Corktown is an intimate gated community situated on the southwest corner of River and Shuter Streets, just minutes from major highways, the St. Lawrence Market, the rejuvenated Distillery District, plus the shops, bakeries and bistros of charming Cabbagetown.
This limited collection of just 16 townhomes is also handy to Toronto’s entertainment and cultural venues including the new Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. Situated just south of Regent Park South, New Corktown residents will benefit from the revitalization of that area, which will form a connection with the surrounding neighbourhoods. In addition, Riverdale Park is just a few blocks north, and Lake Ontario a short drive south.
Each of the two- and three-storey townhomes in New Corktown is crowned by a spacious rooftop terrace, perfect for entertaining. The richly detailed, heritage-inspired architecture by renowned Kirkor Architects features heritage brick with stone components, turrets and other focal points to compliment the existing mid-19th century buildings in the area.
Corktown was originally home to thousands of working class Irish who came to Canada from the County of Cork. Many of the original homes of these workers were unadorned, and their simple, straightforward design has become more captivating with time.
Currently, Corktown is undergoing a renaissance, and has attracted a vibrant community of right-brained artists and left-brained entrepreneurs.
Inside Longo’s townhomes, the open-concept layouts satisfy 21st century families with convenient dens, inviting family rooms, formal living and dining rooms, sumptuous master bedrooms and more (all as per plan). One design, the Queen, offers a lovely 312-sq.-ft. rooftop terrace plus a balcony off the living/dining room for maximum outdoor living space.
Each suite comes complete with parking, as well as a long list of luxury appointments. Among these are solid oak handrails and the choice of metal or oak pickets finished in a natural colour; kitchen cabinets with 42-inch uppers; rich ceramic floor tiles; quality 40-oz./Berber carpeting; and engineered pre-finished laminate flooring.
