As real estate prices across the GTA continue to reach record highs, life in Toronto is becoming less affordable. At the same time, younger generations are increasingly drawn to urban lifestyles, with the rate of car ownership flatlining as the population continues to rise. Striving to provide a balance between affordability and urban, transit and pedestrian-friendly lifestyles, Adi's Stationwest is introducing a new housing paradigm to western Burlington.
Located in the immediate walking vicinity of the Aldershot GO Station, the 160-unit townhouse development, designed by ICON Architects, strategically caters to commuters seeking an alternative to automobile dependance. While Stationwest's two and three-bedroom homes feature driveways—as the community is still largely car-oriented—the proximity to the GO Station means that commuters can arrive at Union Station less than an hour after leaving their homes.
According to Adi Development Group CEO Tariq Adi,“With Stationwest, we’re not just building for today. We’re targeting connectivity and walkability to build for the future, we’re creating a mobility hub that acknowledges the present and future of this booming region.”
In anticipation of a more transit-oriented future, Stationwest's proximity to rail infrastructure ensures that the community will remain a relatively sustainable and attractive place to live in years to come, particularly as increased investment in Ontario's rail infrastructure begins to reap benefits. In particular, the introduction of more regular all-day service along the Lakeshore West line—as part of the GO RER project—will create an improved connection to Toronto.
“This will be one of the last opportunities to own in a transit-connected low rise community of this size in Burlington," Adi tell us. "The demand has been incredible and we continue to hear from members of the community who are excited to own homes here. It’s truly a spectacular master-planned community,” says Adi, characterizing Burlington as a city in the midst of transformative "paradigm shift" towards urban living.
The master-planned community's three-level suites will range in size from 1,200 to 2,200 ft², offering relatively spacious configurations—particularly in comparison to the Toronto market. Stationwest's interiors will be appointed by U31, and with high-end features such as quartz or granite countertops. In addition, each residence will have a private outdoor space, with either a landscaped backyard garden or a rooftop terrace.
