If you’re looking for a place to spread your wings, The Nest by Rockport Group is the perfect place to call home. Located on St. Clair Avenue, between Bathurst Street and Winona Drive, The Nest offers an exciting new opportunity to live not only in the heart of the burgeoning Hillcrest Village neighbourhood, but within an award-winning midrise condominium.
Situated just a few short minutes west of Toronto’s downtown core, Hillcrest Village offers the best of both worlds — the beautiful tree-lined streets, heritage homes and the close-knit community are all reminiscent of a small town. But, St. Clair West’s long roster of restaurants, shops and cafes, and the vast nightlife options create a big city vibe that anyone, of any demographic, can appreciate.
Convenience is key in Hillcrest Village. In addition to the boutique shops and restaurants that have come to characterize the neighbourhood, the area is in the midst of a huge resurgence and, in recent years, has welcomed several big-box heavyweights along the St. Clair West strip. The Nest residents can easily go grocery shopping at Loblaws, pick up key essentials at the local Shoppers Drug Mart or grab a bite to eat at the family BBQ joint, The Stockyards. Residents also have a wide array of variety stores, and can access healthcare services without ever having to leave the neighbourhood.
With Corso Italia set right next to Hillcrest Village, you can rest assured that you will also have access to your fair share of great Italian cuisine. The nearby Artscape Wychwood Barns — a local community centre with housing and studios for artists, green space and a farmers’ market — is also a popular spot where community members can gather and enjoy fun events all year round.
Getting in and around the city is a breeze in Hillcrest Village. The Nest residents can hop on the St. Clair streetcar that connects with the Yonge and Spadina subway lines, ideal for residents working in downtown Toronto.
The latest addition to the neighbourhood — The Nest — will be equally as attractive as the neighbourhood itself. The nine-storey building currently under construction will boast a bold exterior containing a one-of-a-kind stepped design by RAW architects that will surely be a captivating supplement to Hillcrest Village.
Residents will enjoy the many building amenities designed by II By IV Design. Plan a nice get-together in the modern lounge that will consist of a kitchen, library and fireplace. And get ready to relish in the striking bird’s-eye view of the city on the rooftop terrace designed by Janet Rosenberg & Studio. Your overnight guests can also take advantage of the designer decorated guest suite.
On the main level of The Nest will be an executive concierge and security service, a fitness centre and a pet spa that is ideal for resident pet owners.
An even bigger draw of The Nest is its suites. Winner of the 2014 BILD Award for best suite design 750-1,500sq. ft., each unit will come complete with nine-ft. ceilings in the living area, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a private terrace and/or balcony.
Units are also equipped with an individually controlled heat pump for year round heating/cooling, a washer/dryer, a gas line for cooking inside and outside, and many other exceptional finishes including integrated appliances. Residents will also benefit from The Nest’s geothermal heating and cooling, which allows for long-term energy and cost savings.
There are only a limited number of suites available. Luckily for new buyers the condominium is nearing completion and will be move-in ready this year.
