Kingston Road Village is one of Toronto's least known shopping and restaurant strips. This could be because it's hidden away on the east side of town to the north of The Beach. Kingston Road Village anchors the Upper Beach and features a widening array of shopping and dining options in a newly fashionable yet still family friendly neighbourhood. One will find a wide array of businesses when strolling along Kingston Road including vinyl record stores, artisanal food shops, and premium coffee roasters.
As the area is becoming more desirable, new living opportunities are arising in this area of Toronto. Adding density and extending Kingston Road Village another block east is the Kingston&Co Condominiums from TAS, Main and Main Developments, and First Capital Realty. This 10-storey condominium building was designed by Teeple Architects, keeping an elegant and articulated but simple theme throughout the exterior. Every one of the 140 units at Kingston&Co features either a balcony or a terrace. This creates a great stacking effect particularly on the terrace north side of the building. The building's Kingston Road frontage is set to revitalize the street here with brand new opportunities for businesses, whether shopping or services or dining.
The interiors of Kingston&Co have been designed by Mason Studio to maximize and creatively use space. Units will feature high quality finishes throughout each living space, while large windows will bathe the suites in natural light. Units include and two bedroom units. Some of the amenities at Kingston&Co are quite unique, not found in other new developments, like a special car wash area in the garage and a workshop and tool room where you can tinker away. Other amenities will satisfy the expectations any buyer has for condominiums like a party room and a rooftop garden area with outdoor patio space, but here they will come with unique views over leafy green streets and over the Scarborough Bluffs to Lake Ontario.
This upcoming weekend is a great opportunity to check out this area of the city and this future development. Just to the south of Kingston Road, Queen Street will be hosting the Beaches International Jazz Festival, taking place from 7pm-11pm Thursday July 24th to Saturday July 26th. A team from TAS will be present at the Jazz Festival, giving away prizes including a $500 prepaid VISA card every night to explore the neighbourhood. The team will also be on site to answer any questions about the project and its unique amenities.
Kingston&Co Condominiums are expected to be completed by early 2017. Head to the dataBase file linked below for more information, floor plans, and renderings of this development.
