Streetcar Development’s The Carnaby has been pushing through this summer with a number of interesting marketing campaigns aimed at attracting the design-savvy Queen West crowd. Following their successful pop-up shop, a joint venture with furniture store Design Republic, Streetcar is taking a bit of a breather before the fall sale season picks up next month.

Functionality of space was a prominent motivator in suite design at The Carnaby, in large part due to Streetcar’s goal of offering multi-bedroom suites within an affordable price range (and square footage). The Cord floorplan is one such suite, coming in at 710 square feet and composed of two bedrooms and two full baths. The suite takes advantage of having corner windows with both bedrooms as well as the living and kitchen space afforded plenty of natural light. The kitchen has been lined up along one wall to create a flexible dining/living area, while an entrance hallway has been eliminated in order to maximize the central living space. The master ensuite was also reduced in size to allow for a proper walk in closet, a luxury that condominium purchasers seem rather reluctant to give up; all those pumps and tweeds need a home, right? Super-convenient laundry is located through the walk-in closet.

As developers are looking to increase the number of multi-bedroom units within new condominiums, we’ll no doubt find floorplans similar to The Cord. Finding functional space is undoubtedly the lead motivator in the design, requiring a reconsideration and new approach towards interior layouts.
