The Residences at Central Park – a 12-acre, mixed-use, master-planned community envisioned by Amexon Development Corp. – will soon rise at the east end of Toronto’s Bayview Village neighbourhood on Sheppard Avenue.

Designed to be a vibrant, environmentally sustainable community, Central Park is a nexus between the urban and natural worlds. Residents enjoy proximity to a range of urban conveniences, and have direct access to the East Don Parkland’s sprawling, forested ravine that embraces the property in lush nature.

“Central Park is a nature-inspired upscale community unlike anything else in Toronto,” says Jason Shiff, executive sales manager. “Central Park will be a quiet oasis in vibrant urban su rroundings, where outdoor lovers are going to be able to immerse themselves in nature all year long.

Lifestyle potential

“The ravine is part of the Don River Valley parklands, where there’s a network of walking and cycling trails to explore, that lead all the way downtown. Residents can enjoy outdoor pastimes to the fullest, like hiking, biking, birding and cross-country skiing. And the community is connected, with the Leslie subway station and the relocated Oriole GO station right at your front door. Getting around the city, the GTA and beyond will be incredibly convenient.”

Bayview Village Shopping Centre is just down the road, with a variety of shops and services, ranging from restaurants to lifestyle and wellness. Yorkdale, Fairview Mall, golf courses, parks and other destinations are within easy reach, with immediate access to public transit, Hwy. 401, the DVP and the 404.

“We took a lot of time and care planning the look and lifestyle potential of Central Park,” Shiff adds. “It’s going to redefine how residents live, work and play.”

The award-winning Central Park Common is at the heart of the community – an artfully landscaped, three-acre urban park, where residents can gather and connect along pedestrian-friendly streets lined with bike paths, casual dining venues, fountains and reflecting pools.

Range of outdoor activities

Year-round programming will offer a range of outdoor activities, including a farmers’ market and ice-skating rink.

Central Park will elevate an active lifestyle – residents will have use of 55,000 sq. ft. of fitness, wellness, leisure and social amenity space, offering something for all ages. The Park Club will be home to indoor and outdoor saltwater pools, a state-of-the-art fitness club, half-court basketball, a screening room/theatre, recording/media studio, event space, piano/wine lounge, kids’ club, guest suites and yoga studio. Among the leisure-inspired amenities will be rooftop Zen gardens, barbecue areas, ice-skating rink, bowling alley, golf simulator, hobby studio, and pet daycare/grooming facilities. Working from home will be made easy in the spacious 5,000-sq.-ft. co-working space, featuring smart technology, meeting rooms, hot desks and a business centre.

The community itself will feature an array of outstanding shared amenities, retail, restaurants and services – including on-site daycare.

Environmental sustainability is high on the priority list, and Central Park will be built to Amexon’s Green Development Standard, incorporating an array of industry-leading Green features, including solar panels that supplement the building’s energy needs, and Green roofs that reduce energy consumption. Central Park is the first large-scale project of its kind in Canada to include EV charging stations in all parking areas. There will also be on-site auto-share and bike-share options available.

Amexon enlisted an award-winning team to craft a development destined to become a local landmark. CORE Architects’ artful exterior for the residential condominiums is in harmony with the natural surroundings, with facades displaying an organic leaflike design.

Sophisticated interiors

“We wanted to break away from the conventional,” says CORE’s Deni Poletti, “to express a harmonious coexistence between sparkling glass and nature. It was important to be respectful of the tower’s natural setting above the East Don Parkland.”

The visionary design features an elegant, hotel-inspired, port-cochere providing an inviting sense of arrival, with an artisan-designed fountain, original art installation and lush landscaping by renowned Cosburn Nauboris Landscape Architects.

Sophisticated suite and amenity interiors continue a contemporary vibe, with modern features grounded in natural materials and earthy colours. “We were really inspired to create something new and fresh,” says Dan Menchions of II BY IV DESIGN. “We want these spaces to evoke the allure and comfort of nature, with detailed features and finishes that unite a love of the outdoors and creative living.”

The community will eventually encompass more than 1,500 suites, ranging from one- to three-bedroom plus den layouts, in sizes from 439 to 1,200 sq. ft. Prices begin from the $700,000s. For a true appreciation of Amexon’s superior design and meticulously detailed craftsmanship, visit the must-see, 10,000-sq.-ft. all-glass presentation centre at 1200 Sheppard Ave. E. Spectacular gallery-like surroundings include kitchen, bathroom and walk-in closet vignettes that display many of the high-end appointments that come standard here.

Amexon Development is one of Toronto’s most prominent and innovative real estate developers, building its reputation as a multi-award-winning firm by delivering superior-quality properties. The Residences at Central Park is a world-class residential destination that sets new standards in the condominium industry.
