Most developers have shelved their plans for launching new projects in 2009 in favour of promoting and marketing their projects already on the go. Cresford is currently pushing their 2 developments under construction located on Charles St, just south of Yonge and Bloor. If you are looking for a new condo in a prime downtown location and want to move in in the next 12 months, BSN: Bloor Street Neighbourhood and CASA could be good options for you.
It’s debatable whether or not this location is truly Yorkville, but it’s steps from Bloor Street shopping, the Yonge and Bloor line subways, the Manulife Centre, and about half a dozen Starbucks locations.Ã‚Â
There are still plenty of great units available at both buildings and Cresford is offering some pretty good incentives right now. For suites priced over $600,000, Cresford is offering a free parking spot and locker (valued at around $40K), and for suites priced under $600,000 they are offering 2% cash back (not as exciting).
Architecturally these two buildings offer a striking contrast. BSN is more of a traditional high rise with a staggered podium and a unique L-shape. CASA is a great example of a Toronto modernist condo designed by architectsAlliance with a ‘glass box in the sky’ feel to it. Key features at BSN include 10′ ceilings, huge terraces, and generous floor plans. CASA will feature an outdoor pool that will be open year round.Ã‚Â
Price per square foot varies from $500-$700 depending on the unit, exposure, balconies (see current price list below).
