05 Oct Karma Construction has Commenced
It’s official that construction has begun at the future site of Karma!
We have a few pics of the progress, but first, let’s go through a quick backgrounder on this development. Considered the ‘fastest selling launch of 2011’, Karma Condos has shown itself to be a condominium that people have cared about. A fitting reputation for a sleek 50-storey glass tower that marketed itself as the ‘condo that cares’.
Determined to create a condominium market campaign that reflected its developers’
(Lifetime Developments and CentreCourt Developments) corporate commitments to
philanthropy and giving back, Karma launched in 2011 with a unique registration
marketing campaign; a promise from the developers to donate five dollars from each
unique registration at karmacondos.com to one of three deserving local charities (Ronald
McDonald House, Wellspring and Sketch). With over 3,000 website registrations for
the project, and an additional pledge from Lifetime and CentreCourt to add another ten
dollars to each registration received, the developers recently presented each charity with
a cheque for $15,000.
“We are in the business of building communities, and that means supporting the services and agencies that support our residents. These three local charities do phenomenal work and we are excited to have been in the position to contribute to their important efforts,”says Brian Brown, Lifetime Developments’, Vice President.
Funds raised for Ronald McDonald House will provide a private room for much needed
rest, just steps away from SickKids, allowing parents and families a much needed
space to focus on what matters most- their child. Karma’s contribution to Wellspring
will support the organization’s Cancer Exercise Program through the purchase of
specialized apparatus, including a leg and arm ergometer, treadmill, rehab trainer and
other specialized rehabilitation equipment. Funds raised for Sketch will furnish an entire
Movement Studio with specialized spring-loaded floors, full length mirrors, lighting
and more, to create a safe and inspiring setting for theatre arts, martial arts, dance and
