The response has been very good at Edilcan's new One Valhalla Towns and Condos development on the site of the former Valhalla Inn in Etobicoke. One Valhalla will eventually encompass three new glass-clad towers rising from a one-acre landscaped podium and 68 contemporary private three-storey townhomes.

Designed by Page + Steele / IBI Architects, the buildings will surround a lush courtyard landscaped by Schollen & Company, with low stone walls, raised planters, decorative lighting and a children’s playground. Munge Leung Design Associates appointed the contemporary interiors with retro touches that call to mind the Scandinavian design of the original Valhalla Inn and its era. The two-storey lobby will feature terrazzo flooring in a modernized 1960s pattern, as well as black walnut highlights to create a strong sense of entry. From the indoor pool, splash pool and hot tub area, residents can walk out to the landscaped patio on the podium.

The Resident’s Club bar and lounge also has a walkout to the terrace, looks out over the ground-floor landscaped courtyard, and features screens injected with coloured glass that will be visible from the outside – another vintage touch. Amenities include a theatre, fitness facility, business/study centre complete with Wi-Fi, media/library lounge, children’s activity room, guest suites and landscaped terrace rooftop with barbecue area and an outdoor children’s play area. Location is a major advantage for purchasers. One Valhalla offers easy access to Sherway Gardens, Cloverdale Mall and Loblaws, the Kipling TTC Subway Station, Pearson International Airport and is within seconds of highways 427, 401, the QEW and the Gardiner Expressway. In addition, the Valhalla Express shuttle bus will be available to transport residents to the subway, grocery and both shopping malls.
