12 Aug BLVD and Lifetime’s The Code Condos Sold Out in Forest Hill
Being able to offer the right product in the right location at the right price isn’t always the easiest task to accomplish for property developers in Toronto, but BLVD Developments and Lifetime Developments seem to have gotten the formula right with The Code Condos, a condominium development coming to the intersection of Parkwood and St. Clair Avenue West in the city’s tony Forest Hill neighbourhood. By early July the project had hit the 97% mark in sales, and in the time since, the final four suites out of the project’s 118 condominium and townhome residences have now been spoken for as well, meaning that this midtown development is completely sold out and ready to go!
The Code will stand 9 storeys tall, with a contemporary design by Hariri Pontarini Architects which terraces down towards the tree neighbourhood to the north. While design is an important factor in attracting purchasers to a new condominium development, much of The Code’s success can also be attributed to its prime location in Midtown Toronto. Residents at The Code will have quick transit access via the 512 streetcar which runs directly out front on its dedicated right-of-way to either St. Clair or St. Clair West subway stations, while the latter is located close enough to walk to in a few minutes for those who care to stretch their legs.
Directly across St. Clair Avenue to the south is the 21-acre Sir Winston Churchill Park. It will provide residents of the new development with a place to relax, play tennis, jog, toboggan in the winter, and there is a playground for kids and even an off-leash area for dogs. The area is one of Toronto’s most walkable, with the retail and restaurants of Forest Hill Village to the north on Spadina Road as well as ample shopping and dining along St. Clair Avenue West.
While The Code offers a lot to residents, it also gives back to neighbours and passerby as this long-awaited addition to the neighbourhood will rise from the site of a now torn-down eyesore. A partially constructed seniors’ home project stood incomplete on the site for years, blighting the surrounding blocks with its presence. The recent clearing of the failed development will soon be replaced by a handsome new building.
