The Buzz about B.streets.
by Heather Rovet
There is a lot of buzz around the B.streets condos which, once complete, will be situated on Bathurst Street just south of Bloor. I think this location has a lot to do with all the talk as we all know that in real estate it is location, location, location! This 9-storey contemporary building is going to be right in the heart of the Annex, one of Toronto’s most sought after neighbourhoods.
B.streets is brought to you by developers Lindvest Properties and is being designed by the world-renowned architectural firm of Hariri Pontarini, the team behind One Bloor and the Shangri-La. The proposed design of modular “cubes” will breakdown the elongated façade along Bathurst Street, while providing a clear sight line for pedestrian traffic and a generous walk way down the laneway. B.streets is intended to create a lively relationship with its immediate context and community by providing a playful exterior and a functional retail strip at the street level.
Future home to 195 units, ranging in size from studios to town home and pricing mid 200,000 to mid 900,000. Cecconi Simone is the interior designer and finishes appear to be contemporary and stylish. Building amenities include concierge, fitness centre, yoga studio, theatre room, internet lounge, outdoor patio and a hobby room where one can tinker around with out messing up their own space!
This project which launched late last year is already 60 percent sold out. I think this building is going to be a great addition to the vibrant neighbourhood which, people will enjoy for years to come.
