Altree Developments offers an unparalleled approach to luxury real estate. Committed to challenging the status quo, Altree’s mission is to create revolutionary projects that build upon the culture within each of their communities. Forest Hill Private Residences, Altree Developments’ latest project, will be a true testament to this vision; a timeless luxury boutique condominium in the heart of Forest Hill, one of Toronto’s most well-regarded and coveted neighbourhoods.

Located at 2 Forest Hill Rd., the boutique midrise building redefines the standards of luxury living, with nine storeys and 94 bespoke residences. A combination of townhomes and condominiums suites will span from 750 to more than 2,400 sq. ft., with prices ranging from $1.8 million to more than $6 million.

Forest Hill Private Residences overlooks the thriving strip of St. Clair Avenue West and the tree-lined streets of Forest Hill Road. In addition to its coveted address, Forest Hill Private Residences will be home to a number of amenities typically seen in five-star hotels, rather than condominiums. Serviced by the Forest Hill Group, Forest Hill Private Residences will feature 24-hour executive concierge and valet services and a number of a la carte offerings, including personal trainers, yoga and Pilates instructors, nutritionists and massage therapists and an on-staff wine sommelier. Some of the building’s exceptional physical amenities will include heated indoor and outdoor pools, sauna and steam rooms, a state-of-the-art private gym and an extensive wine library, curated by experts and available to all residents.

In planning and development for nearly three years, demolition on the project site for Forest Hill Private Residences commenced in September and wrapped up in October 2021. Shoring and excavation began shortly afterwards, with the underground construction slated for early 2022 and above-ground construction planned for summer 2022. Forest Hill Private Residences is expected to be completed in fall/winter 2023.

This Forest Hill project reflects Altree Developments’ commitment to building upon pre-existing and iconic communities while maintaining its landmarks and history. Planned with timeless design and elegance in mind, Forest Hill Private Residences was designed with architecture by Graziana and Corazza Architecture Inc. and stunning interiors by U31 Design. The exterior of the building will be limestone and granite, in order to create an elegant timeless feel, the building’s abundance of light and expansive terraces are also meant to create the feeling of home. The interiors of the building were designed with a combination of New York City elegance and Miami flair in mind.

Industry-leading designers and architects

Altree has worked with industry-leading designers and architects to create a building with timeless designs containing floor-to-ceiling windows, expansive outdoor spaces and 10-ft. ceilings, all in the name of living up to this coveted address and neighbourhood. Most Forest Hill Private Residence suites will also enjoy expansive private terraces with grand outdoor exposure, a rare amenity in Toronto’s crowded condominium market.

“Altree is dedicated to its mission of seamlessly integrating our projects into the spirit and culture of the neighbourhoods in which we develop,” says Zev Mandelbaum, president and CEO of Altree Developments. “The Forest Hill neighbourhood has a long and storied history and its residences have called this area home for a long time. We view Forest Hill Private Residences as an opportunity to further add to the community, and transform this notable address into something that truly embodies timeless luxury and elegant design.”

In a post-COVID-19 world, Forest Hill Private Residences features dual entrances – with a dedicated entrance for parcels, packages and food delivery, while residents enter through a separate private entrance and lobby, aided by a private porte-cochere and 24-hour valet service.

A project ahead of its time, Forest Hill Private Residences was built with its end-users in mind. Those who are looking to downsize their living space will find Forest Hill Private Residence’s bespoke, tailored suites to be open and welcoming. Pets are more than welcome, with on-site pet grooming and walking services available. Those who travel frequently can have their homes looked after, and all their parcels and deliveries will be safely put away, awaiting their return.

“It was very important for Altree to focus on providing top-of-the-line services and amenities for residents of Forest Hill Private Residences, as well as design and architecture that conveyed the feeling of home,” says Mandelbaum.

Perfect pocket of the city

Residents of Forest Hill Private Residences will have access to some of the area’s most renowned and beloved restaurants, local shops and boutiques. Truly one of Toronto’s most desired neighbourhoods, its beautiful tree-lined streets and subtle charms will provide future homeowners of this condominium with the best that the city has to offer.

Within a short walk from Casa Loma and Forest Hill Village, and a short drive away from the downtown core, Forest Hill Private Residences resides in the perfect pocket of the city, just an arm’s reach away from anything you could need. Residents will also be within proximity to the city’s most well-renowned schools such as Upper Canada College and Bishop Strachan, providing an ideal area to raise a family. More than that though, Forest Hill Private Residences is ideal for empty nesters, downsizers, first-time buyers and families. Anyone looking for a luxury living space that exudes the feeling of home, but with all the trimmings of a five-star hotel, will find Forest Hill Private Residences to be the perfect fit.

Forest Hill Private Residences is set to become a lasting landmark project for the Forest Hill neighbourhood, built with the prestigious character of the local community in mind. With demolition complete and the construction process steadily moving forward, Altree Developments looks forward to bringing this revolutionary project to purchasers and residents soon.
