Final Zoning By-law and Site Plan drawings will be submitted to the city in the very near future. A recommendation report for Zoning and Site Plan approvals is expected to be written and presented to City Council in late Q2-2017. A building permit submission to construct a sales office has been submitted to the City. The sales program and marketing for the project are currently being arranged with an anticipated launch to follow shortly after Zoning Bylaw and Site Plan approvals.
In early June, the Toronto and East York Community Council recommended approval of the application to amend the Zoning By-law at 1177 Danforth Avenue. Sierra Building Group and their planning consultant, Hunter and Associates Ltd. had submitted a rezoning application for a 9-storey, mixed-use building with 92 residential units, 65 vehicular parking spaces, 115 bicycle parking spaces, and two levels of below-grade parking. Following this positive planning report, Sierra Building Group started their marketing campaign. The project has been rebranded “Platform Condos on the Danforth”, and Sierra has brought in top condominium brokerage Baker Real Estate to handle residential unit sales. For first access to sales at Platform, contact our Julie Barnard at 905-787-9266 and register at www.platformcondos.ca. The building will feature approximately 5,700 sf of common areas, including a contemporary lobby, gym, party room, chef’s kitchen and outdoor spaces. On the ground floor, there will be nearly 6,500 sf of retail space.
Platform Condos was launched to VIP brokers in the third quarter, and sales have been brisk to date. Remaining units range from 529 sf to over 1,200 sf and are priced from $360,000 to over $1 million. Parking and lockers are available for $59,900 and $8,900 respectively. Common amenities include a well-equipped fitness room, a yoga studio, an entertainment room complete with pool table and caterer’s kitchen, and an outdoor rooftop fireplace and lounge. There is secure resident bicycle parking and additional racks for guests. Byron Patton Associates designed the lobby space. Interior finishes include floor-to-ceiling windows, 9’ ceiling heights throughout living areas, smooth ceilings, quartz countertops, stainless steel undermount kitchen sink, stainless steel glass top range, and ceramic tile backsplash. Occupancy is scheduled for the spring of 2020 and interested purchasers should call Baker Real Estate at 416-887-2189. Limited time incentives on parking and development levies are currently being offered.
