Master-Planned Community

CONDOS ON THE PARK

Situated at Dufferin and Dupont, Galleria on the Park offers a modern urban lifestyle. This new condominium development will overlook an extended and reconfigured Wallace Emerson park. Expansion plans include doubling the size of the community centre to 95,000 sq. ft., making it one of the largest in the city and expanding the park to nearly 8 acres. With added infrastructure including cycling lanes, it’s no wonder this new community will be the centre of activity in Central West Toronto.

 

CREATIVITY AT WORK

Look forward to approximately 20,000 sq. ft. of office space tailored to meet the demands of the rising creative and tech booms in the city. A heightened design focus, applied to layout and flow, blends modern convenience with creativity.

 

MODERN RETAIL

With nearly 300,000 sq. ft. of retail, Galleria on the Park offers a fresh look at the retail experience to complement existing favourites. Drawing inspiration from the artisanal renaissance in the area, the planned retail reflects the original and specialty offerings that make them one of the main attractions in Toronto’s new Dupont. With fitness and lifestyle retailers, healthy on-the-go dining options and park on the premises, there’s no better place to be actively inspired.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:  WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR CONDO PROJECT?

 

  • BEST SUITED FOR OWN USE.  While the area and location is amazing, and while there are tons of infrastructure developments going on in the area (East Harbour, Google Smart City, etc.), this does NOT fit our traditional cashflow business model, and thus is most suitable for owner’s own use / end users.
  • LARGE UPSIDE POTENTIAL.  Although it’s not our traditional cashflow business model, we still believe in the area and the upside growth potential of this development, the business model is just slightly different and slightly more speculative if viewed as an investment, which may still suit certain investor profiles.
  • VIP ACCESS.  We have VIP early access to this project because of our relationships with the developers.

*Location: Regent Park which is beginning Phase 3 of a 5-Phase Master Gentrification Plan.

*Nearby Developments (East Harbour): 15 mins walk from the massive East Harbour master planned office/retail mixed use development (50,000 new jobs)! www.eastharbour.ca
