Building’s facade will reflect neighbourhood character

Shelly Sanders Greer – Toronto Star

A midrise condominium on the doorstep of the St. Lawrence Market and the financial district, the Berczy, is a 13-storey brick building at the southwest corner of Church and Front Sts. has been designed to mesh with the historical flavour of the area.

“The building has a four-storey masonry base meant to tie into the heritage character of the St. Lawrence neighbourhood,” says Rod Wilburn, senior vice president at Concert Properties. “As you go down Church St., the building steps back in an attempt to not overwhelm the area. This also allows for more light on the street.

The top nine floors will be more contemporary, with lots of glass, and quite a few suites will have large terraces. Wilburn explains that terrace size will coincide with suite sizes, with larger suites having larger terraces.

The suites feature high-end finishes such as wide-plank hardwood floors in ash, oak or walnut, smooth-finished ceilings, polished quartz kitchen counters, oak cabinetry, roller shades on the windows, flexible interior rooms with glass walls and sliding glass doors, and integrated European appliances.

Wilburn says Concert Properties will be targeting LEED Gold status, which reflects their commitment to energy efficiency.

The high-end details will extend to the lobby and amenities, which include a courtyard with water features, a lounge and exercise room, and a large terrace on the south side with a barbecue.

“The Berczy is not about huge scale,” says Wilburn. “It’s more of a club atmosphere, a cozy home.”

Suite sizes will range from 560-square-foot, one-bedroom plans, to two-bedroom with dens at 2,000 square feet. Prices start at $275,000 and go to over $1.5 million, and condo fees will be 50 cents a square foot.

Burdell says the intention is to start construction early this fall. The presentation centre is currently being built and will feature a completely finished and furnished model suite as well as two complete kitchen vignettes. Move in dates are scheduled for the fall of 2012.
