Clifford Korman and his team at Kirkor Architects and Planning are immersed in condos. On the Sheppard corridor alone, the senior partner, architect and urban planner has been overseeing the design of more than of 20 condominium towers. Why? Because “Sheppard is a great street and I believe in it,” Mr. Korman says.
Among Kirkor’s current projects are Tridel’s Hullmark Centre, Rockport Group’s Twenty One Clairtrell and Phantom Development’s Jade Condominiums.
Given the 25- to 40-year-old demographic that’s moving in, Mr. Korman is building suites with bold designs to hold their interest. He says many buyers are immigrants — or children of immigrants — from Korea, Iran and Asia who “like modern-contemporary-with-lots-of-glass buildings and they like high-end finished spaces. They don’t need big areas — they’re not used to it — and they’re pleased to buy smaller units at top-quality fitments.”
Empty nesters, though, are “a rarity in the Sheppard corridor,” Mr. Korman says. Instead, they’re moving farther south to Eglinton and Bayview for larger, more luxurious 1,200- to 2,000-sq.-ft. units such as those at Kirkor-designed Blythwood at Huntington by Tridel.
