A corridor of medium-density development is forming along much of the north side of Dupont Street in Toronto, with a number of active and planned buildings promising increased vitality through new retail and housing. Among the next wave of projects on Dupont, Lifetime Developments' Oscar Residences is a nine-storey, Turner Fleischer Architects-designed building just west of Bathurst Street.
The development will bring 155 new condominium suites to the Seaton Village neighbourhood, offering a range of layouts spanning from studios to three-bedrooms, priced starting in the $500,000s. UrbanToronto has already taken a look at the amenities at Oscar, featuring spaces appointed by interior designers Mason Studio, who are also responsible for the look of the suites themselves, which offer plenty of premium features to attract purchasers.
Suites at Oscar are to being offered in a set of neutral palettes, joined by advanced features that will support healthier lifestyles for residents. Standard suite features include 9-foot smooth ceilings in most areas of suites, the choice of designer-selected flooring in all principal rooms, and generous outdoor living spaces. Insulated double-glazed windows will make for improved thermal performance in suites while providing views over the neighbourhood. Solid core, custom-designed suite entry doors are to offer privacy locks and secure view-holes.
Kitchens at Oscar feature monochromatic finish palettes that include quartz countertops with porcelain backsplashes, with marble-look slab backsplashes and custom designer islands—with open display and closed storage—available as upgrades. Integrated dishwashers and refrigerators add to the sleek look, along with under-mounted sinks and under-cabinet lighting.
Bathrooms in the building will feature custom, modern cabinetry, countertops, and integrated sinks with wall-mounted vanity LED mirrors above, Mason Studio-selected accessory plans, tubs or glass shower stalls (as per plan), and fixtures. Suites will also feature in-suite laundry areas with stacked washer and dryer and tile flooring.
