Toronto Real Estate – Mount Pleasant

by Dan Flomen

One of Toronto’s best-kept secrets is the area surrounding the Mount Pleasant and Eglinton corridor. It has everything one could need, including transportation, entertainment, restaurants, and the security to walk around at night without having to look over your shoulder.

Over 10 years ago, Urbancorp Developments created The Townhomes of 123 Eglinton. Situated between Redpath and Lillian, the project consisted of 184 stacked units developed in an unused parking lot behind the Union Carbide building. It wasn’t the first project in the area, but it did spawn the resurgence of developers looking at this part of town. Tridel followed with the removal of Union Carbide and the creation of a modern condominium, The Tower at 123 Eglinton, catering to both first-time and move-up buyers. Several small builders then bought infill sites and developed them into townhomes and small condos.

Four projects are now under construction in the immediate vicinity. Although each is unique unto itself, all share in the belief that this area is a booming market with much to offer. 900 Mount Pleasant by Plazacorp, Chateau Royal by Panterra Federated Properties, 88 on Broadway by Cityzen and Myriad, and Panache by Stanford Homes will eventually become home to hundreds of new residents.

Situated just a couple of blocks north of Eglinton, 900 Mount Pleasant will have a dramatic visual impact on the surrounding area. Immediately to the east are some of Toronto’s fastest-selling homes, and to the west are a growing number of new projects and the shops of Yonge Street. 900 Mount Pleasant will also incorporate a number of town manors, which will serve to enhance the overall look and quality of the project.

Chateau Royal, located three blocks south of Eglinton, is a higher end condo featuring 97 exquisite suites, many of which are one-of-a-kind. Its stucco exterior and traditional windows will blend in with the shops along Mount Pleasant.

“These suites are better described as bungalows in the sky, with finishes that need not be upgraded. Our purchasers are a mix of first-time and move-up buyers coupled with empty nesters. The one thing they have in common is that they appreciate the small building size coupled with its French charm,” says Michael Tullock, sales representative for Chateau Royal.

88 on Broadway launched with huge success. Its suites not only feature inspiring floor designs, but are also well-priced. Now under construction, the new, beautifully appointed tower will be only minutes to Mount Pleasant and Yonge Street and will appeal strongly to those who either live in the area or grew up there.

“What we are creating is the perfect project for almost all residents of the Mount Pleasant-Eglinton area,” says Sam Crignano, president of Cityzen Development Group. “88 on Broadway is designed to reflect the lifestyle people currently enjoy, but to bring it all under one roof. No need for a health club; 88 on Broadway has one. No need to leave the area to find home ownership. It is now right there on their doorstep.”

Panache, a contemporary building, is located one block west of Mount Pleasant directly on Eglinton Avenue. Its residents will be able to walk out the front door and be on one of the most vibrant streets in the city with restaurants and shops only steps away.

The Mount Pleasant corridor, once thought of as an alternative to Yonge Street, has come into its own. It continues to flourish in this thriving market and it’s an area for both users and investors to keep an eye on.
