Toronto Condo Profile — Avonshire
Tridel and the K&G Group create Avonshire a community of style & elegance in North York
From New Homes & Condos Magazine
Two industry leaders, Tridel and the K&G Group, have partnered to create an extraordinary new North York condo community where old-world style will meet the sophistication of new-world elegance. With the announcement of their new partnership, Tridel and the K&G Group are pleased to introduce their exceptional new community of Avonshire, which will be the signature statement in architecture and design along the ever-popular and in-demand North York Avondale neighbourhood at Yonge and Hwy. 401.
Avonshire’s architecture will embody timeless and classical elements, providing an old-world prestige to the neighbourhood. Master-planned, sustainable and “Naturally Better,” Avonshire will also showcase new-world luxury and savoir-faire. Tridel, as one of the largest builders of sustainable condos in Toronto, is committed along with the K&G Group to building Avonshire as an environmentally responsible, energy efficient and healthy place to live. Every home built in the Avonshire community will be part of the Naturally Better program, and will be a candidate for L.E.E.D. (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. As a Naturally Better community, Avonshire will be high-performing, using less energy to run while offering superior comfort to the homeowner. In turn, homeowners pay less money to operate the building and their own condo suites.
The Avonshire community will be the result of a well-executed redevelopment of the current Oakburn neighbourhood and will be connected by Harrison Garden Boulevard and Oakburn Crescent leading to Avondale Boulevard, and to say it is connected is an understatement. The Yonge-Sheppard Subway Station is less than a five-minute walk away; Hwy. 401 and the Don Valley Parkway make the rest of the city easily accessible. North York City Centre offers the Civic Centre with Mel Lastman Square, a wealth of shopping, grocery stores, dining, entertainment and theatre options, as well as a wide range of professional and community services, hotels, schools, library and places of worship.
When complete, the Avonshire community will be home to more than 1,100 families. Surrounding a one-acre central park, Avonshire will offer something to accommodate every lifestyle, including four high-rise condo residences, intimate neighbourhood blocks of three-storey executive townhomes, and an exquisite rental residence that will be managed by the service renowned K&G Group. The entire Avonshire community will also have exclusive access to a direct shuttle to the TTC’s Sheppard and Yonge subway lines, and a one-acre central park for year-round enjoyment.
This summer, Tridel and the K&G Group will release the first two condominium residences of this exciting, vibrant new community along with a selection of executive townhomes. The condominium residences will be offering a variety of one- and two-bedroom suites up to 1,600 sq. ft., as well as the larger, more family-oriented Tridel Signature Collection. Of course, Tridel quality amenity spaces will be provided in each of the condominiums and the equally appointed rental community.
“Partnering with such a quality, local, family-owned firm is a natural fit for Tridel,” says Leo DelZotto, President of Tridel. “The K&G Group’s dedication to superior quality and service shows in the company’s absolute care and commitment to go the extra mile. They share our pride in residents’ satisfaction, beautiful homes and distinct living arrangements. It is because of these parallel values that we are certain that this new partnership will result in an outstanding neighbourhood.”
Marvin Katz, President of the K&G Group notes, “Our extremely high regard for Tridel and their history of excellence gives us great confidence that the redevelopment of the Oakburn community will be spectacular. We are certain that Tridel and the K&G Group’s combined commitment to beautiful, quality homes will result in the foundation of one of the finest new master-planned communities in Toronto.”
