Luxury tower caters to the young and hip

The Globe and Mail

Following the sellout success of Daniels’ NY Towers condominium community in Bayview Village, the builders will host a preview sales event for its latest development in the neighbourhood.

Over 6,000 people have registered to attend the launch of the 15-storey building called Arc, which will be situated on the northeast corner of Bayview and Sheppard avenues, adjacent to Bayview Village Shopping Centre and steps to Sheppard subway station.

“Owing to the prominence of that location, it’s not surprising,” vice-president Niall Haggart says. “People love the aspect of living at Bayview, as opposed to Yonge Street, and they want to be located on the subway line.”

Since Arc will also rest on one of the highest vantage points in the area, its curvilinear glass façade will maximize the panoramic vistas in all 447 suites, Mr. Haggart says. “Looking south on Bayview Avenue will be unbelievable,” he says. “Bayview [Village] has all this pristine nature.”

One of the best views offered at Arc will be available to residents in the eighth-floor amenities area, called Club 8. There will be a two-storey multipurpose room with full-height windows and a south-facing terrace, plus a theatre, games rooms and a lounge with wireless Internet access and a coffee bar.

“People looking to buy a condominium are as much looking for a lifestyle,” explains Mr. Haggart of the young, hip crowd the project aims to attract. “These are really great spaces that are used in a variety of different ways. It’s also an opportunity for socialization and to meet other people in the building.”

On the ground floor, there will be a two-storey aquatic centre with a pool, raised whirlpool and co-ed steam room viewed through frosted glass. A high-tech gym will be even feature boxing equipment.

All these interior spaces will have a luxurious and modern feel, courtesy of Mike Niven Interior Design, which many will first experience in the two-storey lobby. It will have a waterfall feature, wood panelling and textured stone and concrete elements contrasted with stainless steel, backlit glass and stone materials.

On site, there will be 24-hour concierge, an ambassador (for personal assistance with groceries, large deliveries and other tasks) and a recreation co-ordinator.

Suite sizes will range from studios to two-bedroom plus den models, in traditional or open concept plans.

Each condo will have nine-foot ceilings, a balcony and interior bedrooms to allow for expansive windows in the principal room, Mr. Haggart says. “So the whole length or width of the unit takes advantage of this wonderful light penetration.”

Decor will be contemporary, from hardwood floors to en suite bathrooms with cultured marble counters and square sinks. Kitchens will have stainless steel Energy Star appliances, granite counters and porcelain tile or mirrored backsplash. In some cases, there will be islands.

Each unit, except studios, will include parking. The monthly maintenance fee, which includes hydro, will be 43 cents a square foot.

As a bonus, purchasers will receive a package with special offers from local retailers. Details will be unveiled at the preview sales event.
