181 Davenport Condos

QrVIP Registration

An elegant sweep of classic architecture, designed to create a handsome and evolving streetscape in upper Yorkville, 181 Davenport is topped with glass-enclosed “sky” penthouses overlooking their pleasant vistas of mid-town Toronto.

181 Davenport in Yorkville is located at the best nexus of green space, entertainment, fashion and convenience that Toronto has to offer. As close to the tennis courts and tree-lined pathways of Ramsden Park as you are to the boutiques and popular restaurants of Yorkville, you can indulge in the excitement of city life as easily as you can escape it.181 Davenport Condos is a new condo project by Mizrahi Developments currently in preconstruction at 181 Davenport Rd in Toronto. The project is scheduled for completion in 2015. Sales for available condos/apartments start at $580,000. The project has a total of 110 units.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

FEATURES

There is one simple design philosophy at 181 Davenport. Employ a high level of craftsmanship to make a home that is classic and instantly welcoming. Attention to detail translates into a feeling of established permanence, a sense that the building has always been there, part of the neighbourhood from the beginning and for years to come. It’s what homeowners feel when they enter a building project from Mizrahi Developments. “Instinctively home” is how they describe it. There’s a grace to how a room feels, found in the proportion and the fine detailing of the coffered ceilings, paneled walls and heavy walls. You know, almost without thinking, that this is home.

Grand Entrance

Step in through the grand entrance into a two-storey lobby with shimmering chandeliers and polished, grey marble floors inlaid with an intricate, geometric pattern in dark brown. Sit with your friends in front of a library wall of books. Watch life unfold in a lobby that feels like a film set for an intriguing European romance.

Protective Windows

To create a cocoon, the windows are a high level of sound attenuation, letting in as much light as possible, but keeping the noise of the city to a minimum. In addition, UV filters provide added protection from the exterior environment.

Mansion Height Ceilings

Every residence has the sensibility of a time when the world was a little slower and more refined. They’re built to feel like a traditional home, equally grand and established. Ceiling heights are 9 feet. Architectural mouldings are classic. Baseboards are 9 1/4″ high.

Heaviness of Doors

Mizrahi Developments has become synonymous with an old-world sensibility, a desire for a sense of permanence and stillness in the homes we build. It may seem inconsequential to other builders, but we believe in such things as the heaviness of solid wood doors, which usher in the world in a grand manner, but also discreetly shut it out.

Bathroom Oasis

The “aesthetic envelope” of a perfectly designed bathroom with Waterworks fixtures is where restoration is found. Renewal for the next day happens in the slipper of a sloping bathtub or on the warmed marble floor in the master ensuite as you step from the glassed-in shower.

Ledges in the Sky

Terraces and balconies reaching out into the historic Yorkville neighbourhood are integral to the design of homes at 181 Davenport. Tall doors lead outside to a private balcony, similar to what you might find in a Parisian hotel. Enjoy a morning coffee and croissant in the hush before the day starts, and then at the end of the day, sip a glass of wine at sunset. In the larger, penthouse suites, a sweep of outdoor terrace is perfect for a large diner party under the stars.

Culinary Pleasure

Being in the kitchen isn’t what it used to be. The preparation of food for family and friends is a pleasure and a hobby when the environment is aesthetically pleasing and functional. Miele appliances offer superior design and efficiency. Cameo Kitchens have a selection of design styles, from sleek and modern to traditional. Marble countertops add to the over all look of classic design.

Condo Pro: The Investment of a Lifetime

By Barbara Lawlor

A substantial percentage of our clients at Baker Real Estate Incorporated buy condos as an investment to add to their financial portfolio. Real estate remains one of the soundest investments anyone can make. In fact, many people feel more comfortable investing in the tangible asset of a condominium rather than stocks and bonds. Historically, those who ride out the lows of occasional real estate cycles do well in the long run. A lot of our investors are international buyers who recognize the value in our spectacular condos. They come from all over the world and from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures.
From their point of view, they know that we have thousands of newcomers to the GTA each year, and they all need a roof over their head. Many begin by renting, so the demand for rental condominium suites promises to remain strong for years to come. We even see bidding wars going on for rental accommodations.
The point is that purchasing a condominium suite with the intention of renting it out is a viable financial strategy. Considering bang for the buck, you get a lot for the price per square foot when you go condo. In addition, condominiums are bound to increase in demand across the GTA as our strong immigration continues and the price of low-rise homes rises even more. Renters know that the amenities and landscaping in a condo will be kept up well, and that with many owners living in the building, their neighbours will take care of their homes. This is a win-win situation.
Here are a few tips for making the most of your decision to buy a condo as an investment.
· Buy early in the marketing/sales process to get the best price.
· Buying early usually means delivery dates are between three and six years, and many buyers make money and earn equity before occupancy.
· Today’s condos are typically built close to transit nodes and have amenities within walking distance, as well as beautiful amenities right in the buildings. Be sure to select a convenient location.
· Most investors select from the builder’s standard finishes, which are gorgeous today. A lot of the new suites come with hardwood or laminate flooring in the main living areas because so many people have allergies today. Think neutral with choosing, as these finishes appeal to a broader target market.
· When you consider the kind of suite to purchase, look carefully at the difference in price between a one-bedroom and one-plus-den. Often, the ability to charge more for rent for a unit with a den outweighs the extra amount at purchase. The den really opens up your market for renters, as it can be used as an office, or a second bedroom with a Murphy bed in it. In essence, these become junior two-bedroom suites. And if the suite has two bathrooms, all the better, especially if a couple students are sharing the space. If your pocketbook can handle only one bedroom, it is still a wise investment choice as a starter rental. These suites are rented are filling a major void in today’s market.
· Be sure to buy from a reputable builder with a track record for success with striking condominiums in amazing locations. I am happy to say that you have excellent choices in Toronto and beyond.
If you choose to live in the condominium you buy, your suite can still be considered an “investment” in two ways: in your quality of life and your peace of mind. Condos save time with so many amenities close by and maintenance taken care of by the Condominium Board. In addition, it is comforting to come home to a building where you know the concierge has a vigilant eye-on-the-street and security monitors for areas like underground parking.
However you slice it, buying a condominium is a great idea for anyone, investor or end-user, of any age – and the sooner, the better!
