East Meets Best – GREAT GULF and HULLMARK Break Ground on “home” Revitalizing the Community East of Downtown
Toronto, July 9, 2018 – Great Gulf and Hullmark broke ground on a 22 storey, condominium development just east of the city’s downtown core. Occupying an entire city block between Parliament and Power Streets, from Richmond to Adelaide on an acre of land, home is perfectly situated close to shopping, transit, major highways and nearby Corktown, in a vibrant neighbourhood that inspires creativity and encourages community.
Designed by Core Architects with interiors by TACT and Ferris + Associates landscape architects, the 15 storey podium connects 2 towers at 19 and 22 storeys. The project features 507 one to three-bedroom condo units ranging from 450 ft² to 1,300 ft².
This unique location in Toronto’s east end provides the advantage of living near the city’s centre with the benefit of a neighbourhood surrounding, featuring a mix of residential, historical richness and a leash free park. With 60,000 sf of retail for a potential large grocery store and other similar offerings, it will provide great amenities for the entire community.
“We’re really excited about this exceptional development because we believe this area represents the future of downtown living. With schools and parks nearby, it’ll be a wonderful community to raise a family. It’ll attract young professionals, couples and families,” said Alan Vihant, Executive Vice President Great Gulf. “Great Gulf’s reputation as a premium condominium builder is a result of 43 years of experience and a commitment to superior design and cutting-edge technology.”
home amenities include Artists’ Workspace, Fitness & Yoga Studio, Pet Spa, Outdoor Pool & Steam Rooms, Meeting Room & Lounge, Event Room with Caterer’s Kitchen, Community Garden and Outdoor Grills & Fireplace
“Home is set to be a gateway project into Downtown East not only because of its location and scale, but also its thoughtful and forward-thinking design. Building on the success of the redevelopment of Regent Park, the development of the West Donlands and the East Bayfront, home will add to the fabric of this diverse, inclusive and thriving community,” said Hullmark President Jeff Hull.
“This development by Great Gulf and Hullmark brings important benefits to the Corktown community. An on-site park, new streetscaping on Power Street, and new traffic signals will help knit together the Corktown neighbourhood and make this a welcome home for new residents,” said Councillor Lucy Troisi, Ward 28, Toronto-Centre Rosedale.
