Among other structures in the towns neighbouring the Cathedral, two buildings will be added in the community of 70,000 people. Dubbed as the Courtyards, the twin structure will be a mixed-use development—containing retail space (ground floor) and residential condominium units. Twelve units will be allocated for retail and 103 for residential suites in the five-storey condominiums.
Courtyards at Cathedraltown aims to help address one of the biggest concerns of our time, climate change. It promises to utilize its roof for greener features. Both of the buildings will also have a green roof and a shared landscaped courtyard, which will contain a bevy of planted birch trees, next to the cathedral. Birch trees of the same kind will greet you at the entrance, which will leave an impression of calmness and serenity before entering these amazing towers.
The development boasts of high-end finishes used in every suite and fantastic sweeping views residents will appreciate from their suites. Uniquely designed by Donald Buttress and Geoffrey Alsop, these structures feature suites that combine functionality with spacious layouts.
Amenities will include a fully equipped fitness room, loggia, concierge, and party room. The loggia and the reception room will consist of the lounge, dining area, and bar for the use of its residents.
The project also aims to promote the value of family. The courtyard of the condominium is to be a place where families can spend time at and where they can enjoy activities out in a well curated outdoor space. And because of its family-friendly design, the developer provided spacious floor plans that include two-level suites for a more for small families.
Nearby parks are Vine Cliff Park, Hazelton Park, Mossy Stone Park, and Cathedral (King David) Park. Schools are as accessible too. These are Sir Wilfrid Laurier Public School and Sir John A. Macdonald Public School.
Offered floor plans include one bedroom, one bedroom + den, two bedroom, two bedroom + den, and three bedroom suites all starting at $758,900. There are also two-level units for the modern house in the sky feel. Suite sizes vary from 947 to 1607 sq. ft.
Estimated completion and occupancy is Spring 2019. Groundbreaking will start in September of 2017, and construction is by King David Inc.
