Sweet Sensation

If the model suite vignette at Canderel Stoneridge's AURA condo in Toronto were a dessert, it would probably be a delicious mix of chocolate and vanilla ice cream with a red cherry on top!

Model finishes are described as a sumptuous colour palette of cream and brown punctuated with the occasional dollop of bright red with accessories and floral.

Toronto, the (un)affordable

Dreaming of a penthouse suite on the 75th floor in the heart of downtown Toronto?

A price tag of $17.5 million is a bargain compared to neighbouring luxury condos offering a similar dream for more money and less space.

Sprinklers - A Must Have

Some developers are already complying with recent changes to the Ontario Building Code for mandatory sprinkler systems in residential buildings over three storeys.

This new code will come into effect in 2010 but Canderel Stoneridge was already a step ahead with plans dated before the province passed legislation in June to install sprinklers in all 930 units of the AURA tower.

A marketing strategy? No - its really about safety. Consumer feedback shows high-rise fire ranks high among buyers' concerns.

The Evolution of the PATH

A Wave of New Condos Set to Transform Our Great Lunch-Hour Mall Into Toronto's Underground City

The PATH system, an underground connection to the city of Toronto is recognized by Guiness World Records as the largest undgeround shopping complex in the world with 4 million sq.ft. of retail space and 27 km of shopping arcades and future plans to expand to 60 km.

The PATH provides linkages to public transit accomodating more than 100,000 daily commuters and thousands of additional tourists and residents on route to city events, work and attractions.

Many people including residents of AURA will be within an easy walk to the PATH courtesy of a direct underground connection from the building at the subway level - now that's convenient!
