This would be perfect for Yonge and Bloor, but it's totally out of context and scale in its current location. I doubt this will get approved, at least not with serious height reductions.

Future Uptown skyline by Traynor in the Toronto section


From left to right I added:

609 Sherbourne (rough guess), X2 (X is hidden behind 403 Bloor), 403 Bloor Street East, Couture, Chaz, As a place holder I put in CASA II at approx. 220 meters for the new 42 Charles Street East tower that was announced this week, U Condos II and I, One Bloor Street East, Cumberland Terrace I and II, Four Seasons Hotel & Residences, Milan Residences, The Florian (look close there is only a sliver of it.) and Yorkville Residences.

Sheeesh! That's a lot!

Toronto is really getting loads of Hong Kong style condos.

Hong Kong style? They're Toronto style to the core.

They don't look HK-style at all. Any floor plans?

Westlake to create new centre of gravity in Humber Bay
March 04, 2011
Special to the Toronto Star

Humber Bay in Etobicoke is fast becoming a hive of condo construction. Problem is, there's not a whole lot happening at the moment when it comes to shops and services.

“You have to drive six kilometres to buy groceries,” says Cam Good, the marketing manager for Westlake, a three-tower condo development at Park Lawn Rd. and Lake Shore Blvd. W. that he vows “will change all that.”

The project is being built by Vancouver-based Onni Group of Companies, the firm behind Garrison at the Yards, the final residential development in the Fort York neighbourhood.

Westlake, located across from Humber Bay Park, will ultimately comprise 1,300 units in the three towers, including 15 two-storey townhomes facing Mimico Creek.

The project is being billed by Onni as the area's first “true urban village,” a community that will form a new centre of gravity for shopping and lifestyle.

The Westlake village will include Club W, a 30,000-square-foot amenities centre with a Metro supermarket, pharmacy, restaurant and café.

(Also in the neighbourhood, Graywood Developments and Beaverhall Homes is developing Ocean Club (www.oceanclubcondos.com), and Amexon Development is doing South Beach Condos (www.southbeachtoronto.com), projects that will provide additional retail offerings and amenities.)

Phase one of Westlake, a 48-storey tower, went on sale in November and as of early February, 75 per cent of the 490 available units were sold.

Homes range from 513-square-foot one-bedroom units to 900-square-foot three-bedroom suites; prices are from $239,000 to $385,900. Remaining phase one inventory ranges from 589-square-foot to 885-square-foot units, priced from $240,900 to $448,900.

Penthouses and townhomes go on sale later this month (pricing was not available).

The penthouses range from 1,075 square feet to 1,600 square feet; buyers have the option of buying three and merging them, Good says. The two-storey creekfront townhouses are between 1,000 square feet and 1,500 square feet.

Most units will have 9-foot 6-inch ceilings (up to 12 feet in the penthouses). Bathrooms have custom-designed cabinetry, CaesarStone vanity countertops and optional soaker tub. Kitchens come with a stainless steel appliance package (fridge, range, microwave and dishwasher), undermount sink and CaesarStone countertops.

Investors have taken a keen interest in Westlake, but Good says locals have been snapping up condos as well. “There have been people waiting for something like this to come along, and they've decided it's finally here and now is the time to act.”

Westlake's second phase, which goes on sale this month, will see construction of a taller, 50-storey tower, and the Club W amenity centre and the Metro supermarket.

Phase two also marks the arrival of Club W, the community centre serving all three towers. The club will have a party room with kitchen, outdoor lounge and barbecue, indoor pool, sauna, steam room, hot tub, fitness centre and yoga studio.

Those looking for a different kind of unwind can head to Club W's sports lounge, equipped with a billiard table, a bar and plasma televisions. The club will also have a children's craft centre and a theatre.

This infusion of retail and services at Westlake will provide the “missing link for the Etobicoke waterfront,” says Onni's development manager Marc Nufrio.

Onni is big on the urban village concept, having built several Vancouver-area projects around it.

“It changes the way people live,” Good explains. “It's basically a self-sufficient island, a community where people can live more car freely and walk to a lot of the things they need in life.”

Westlake's proximity to Humber Bay Park means there are recreational options aplenty nearby: sailing, waterfront jogging, cycling trails and walkways.

The urban village is generally a more “vibrant, interactive” neighbourhood, Good says, recalling a recent Christmas lights competition at Onni's Suter Brook Village community in Port Moody, B.C. “And they often close streets for community fairs. Residents love it.”

Investors do too. “A livable community rents better,” he says. “And if it's a more desirable place to live, then values also tend to be better.”

Westlake is designed to be a self-sufficient “village,” but residents are still within reach of downtown Toronto, Nufrio points out.

“And it's more affordable than a lot of projects downtown, so it's giving some younger first-time homebuyers the opportunity to remain connected with the core.”

Onni has set its “sites” on Toronto. Although a new player on the city's real estate scene, the firm is “a pretty big machine” says Nufrio.

“Right now in Vancouver, we do anywhere between 500 to 1,000 units a year. And the acquisitions team is never really sleeping — there's always something happening.”

Westlake is Onni's second Toronto development. There's also Garrison at the Yards, the final residential project in the Fort York neighbourhood. The development will include four buildings and over 1,000 units.

Both projects have sold quite well. Buoyed by this early success, Onni will continue its GTA expansion.

“Onni loves Toronto,” says Good. “They're setting up permanent offices here, and the owners of the company are getting a home here.”

I'd have to agree. There are lots of compelling draws though. One of the most livable in America is more on the mark. There's a lot on offer, but Toronto does fall down in a few areas.

Definitely inadequate public transportation system is one of them. (surprisingly its the third biggest in NA)

Hehe, funny how Torontonians whine about their public transport. Read the other day where a Melbournian was saying that he'd kill to have the subway system of Toronto (in addition to their trams).

If he'd kill for Toronto's subway I wonder what he'd do for New York's or Seoul's...
