Canada's Condominium Magazine
Tridel’s latest foray into the downtown condo market appears to be a runaway success. The most recent news about Alter, the bold new 33-storey, architectsAlliance-designed condo building that will soon rise on Church Street south of McGill, is that it is 90 per cent sold out. No surprise there.
This could be one of those buildings that sells itself. It looks sharp, with that angular, slightly irregular, off-kilter look that is a hallmark of architectsAlliance buildings. Suites range in size from one- to three-bedroom, so there’s room for singles, couples and families. The location is beyond superb for anyone who wants to enjoy life in Toronto. From this corner of Church and McGill you can reach literally everything in the extended downtown city core within minutes.
There is no point listing every school, hospital, theatre, shopping mall, restaurant, grocery store, public square, park, farmers’ market, church, bar, subway stop, streetcar line, museum, gallery, beer store, gym and office building in this neighbourhood: name it, it’s there. The area has the highest possible walkability score (“walkers’ paradise”) and the highest transit score. If the definition of ideal modern urban living is to live in a place from which a person’s every significant need and pleasure can be reached easily on foot or on public transit, then this is it.
A community in a neighbourhood like this is just bound to be a hive of social activity, and Alter has the recreational and social amenities to make it possible. Amenities are spread over two floors, the fourth and fifth, including a party room and lounge, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, outdoor lounge and swimming pool on the fifth floor. Down on the fourth floor are the yoga studio, gym, change rooms, and dining room.
