Great Gulf and Hullmark broke ground on a 22-storey condominium development just east of Toronto’s downtown core. Occupying an entire city block between Parliament and Power streets, from Richmond to Adelaide on an acre of land, Home is perfectly situated close to shopping, transit, major highways and nearby Corktown, and in a vibrant neighbourhood that inspires creativity and encourages community.
Designed by Core Architects with interiors by landscape architects from TACT and Ferris + Associates, a 15-storey podium connects two towers at 19 and 22 storeys. The project features 507 one- to three-bedroom condo units from 450 to 1,300 sq. ft.
This unique location in Toronto’s east end provides the advantage of living near the city’s centre with the benefit of a neighbourhood surrounding, featuring a mix of residential and historical richness plus a leash-free park. With 60,000 sq. ft. of retail potentially for large grocery store and other similar offerings, it will provide great amenities for the entire community.
“We’re really excited about this exceptional development because we believe this area represents the future of downtown living,” says Alan Vihant, executive vice-president, Great Gulf. “With schools and parks nearby, it will be a wonderful community to raise a family. It’ll attract young professionals, couples and families. Great Gulf’s reputation as a premium condominium builder is a result of 43 years of experience and a commitment to superior design and cutting-edge technology.”
Home amenities include an artists’ workspace, fitness and yoga studio, pet spa, outdoor pool and steam rooms, meeting room and lounge, event room with caterer’s kitchen, community garden, and outdoor grills and fireplace.
“Home is set to be a gateway project into Downtown East not only because of its location and scale, but also its thoughtful and forward-thinking design,” says Hullmark President Jeff Hull. “Building on the success of the redevelopment of Regent Park, the development of the West Donlands and the East Bayfront, Home will add to the fabric of this diverse, inclusive and thriving community.”
“This development by Great Gulf and Hullmark brings important benefits to the Corktown community,” adds Councillor Lucy Troisi, Ward 28, Toronto-Centre Rosedale. “An on-site park, new streetscaping on Power Street and new traffic signals will help knit together the Corktown neighbourhood and make this a welcome home for new residents.”
