Gramercy Park Condos Phase I, II

QR formsVIP Registration

A Private Oasis

Amidst the steel and concrete of New York is a beautiful private oasis called Gramercy Park Condos. A tranquil green space designed and built for the exclusive enjoyment of a privileged few.

Inspired by that one-of-a-kind experience, Toronto now has its own Gramercy Park Condos, an exquisite condominium residence designed around an immaculately landscaped private park.

A beautiful space where body, mind and spirit can commune with gorgeous nature. A garden of Eden, where residents can escape the strident demands of a bustling metropolis and enjoy a moment of peace and serenity.

Welcome to Gramercy Park Condos. Your private oasis in the city.

Apart from the subway, you have numerous bus routes, highway 401 and a GO Transit bus stop-all within ten minutes of home. At Gramercy Park, you’re well connected with everything the city has to offer.

30 Ordnance Condos

QR formsVIP Registration

A new project featuring innovation and sustainability. Proposed 30 & 35 storey residential condominium towers with an industrial component. This innovative project incorporates work space in the podium of the north tower, and connects to future open space and linkages to the east. Unsurpassed views and all you need to live, work, and play.

30 Ordnance Condos will be a 500,000 square foot mixed use development with a podium containing the 26,000 square feet of office / studio use, and street related townhouses that will animate a new pedestrian walkway that will connect Ordnance Street Condos to the new park and bridge. Two residential towers will provide a wide range of unit types, most with uninterrupted views of the downtown skyline and Lake Ontario.

Located just east of Liberty Village, 30 Ordnance Street is located adjacent to one of Toronto’s most vibrant new neighbourhoods. Within walking distance of the lakeshore and the entertainment/shopping/gallery districts of West Queen West, Trinity Bellwoods Park, King Street West and Ossington, 30 Ordnance Street is also a quick bike or streetcar ride away from the downtown core and financial district. The site faces the new parks being added to the Fort York precinct and will thus have protected views of the dramatic downtown skyline to the east.

New Toronto condo sales decline in Q3 2012 due to lack of new launches

There were 3,317 new condominium apartment sales in Toronto in Q3 2012 according to the new Urbanationmarket overview released today.

This represents a 30 per cent decrease from the second quarter figure.

“With slowing sales and a record level of unsold inventory in the market in the second quarter, condominium developers reacted quickly by delaying their project launches, especially in the ‘416’ area,” explained Ben Myers, Urbanation’s Executive Vice President, in a press release.

“Just five projects launched in Toronto in Q3-2012, as developers choose to review their pricing assumptions and unit mix.”

The report also noted the average price of an unsold unit in the Toronto CMA  is sitting at $573 per square foot, an increase of 2 per cent year-over-year. In Toronto proper, the price was $670 per square foot, up from $668 a year ago.

The low number of new launches led to a decrease in unsold inventory in the Toronto CMA from a record high 18,123 in Q2 2012 to 17,182 in Q3.

How will the Toronto market fare in Q4? We’ll have to wait until the new year to find out the official numbers.
