SmartVMC District Master Plan
Vaughan’s SmartVMC District is a compact, pedestrian friendly, mixed use urban community focused on transit. The 100-acre parcel is planned around Vaughan’s most recent intermodal transit hub and a linear central park 2/3 of a mile in length. The plan ensures that no resident or worker in the neighborhood is more than a 2 block walk from the green park space which defines the community.

Transforming what was a car centric environment into a walkable community required the integration of transit, a contiguous pedestrian network of public and private outdoor opens spaces, community facilities, essential retail, employment uses, and a wide range of residential typologies including rental and condominiums.

High Park Condominium
High Park is Toronto’s largest park with 400 acres of trails, playgrounds, dog parks, playing fields, and, for a short time in spring, cherry blossoms. Their design strategy, as a result, offered a building that respected the streetscape and reflected the character of its residents. To keep the building in-spirit with both the adjoining residential neighbourhoods and commercial Bloor Street, they placed retail spaces and a large courtyard at the front of the building.

The architecture of the PACE Condos' 35-story tower, completed in 2016 by Great Gulf Homes, is packed with appealing accents and features. The 6-story podium, made of glass and charcoal-colored brick, has a cold character that is subtly undercut by vintage red paint in the recessions of its balconies. This striking design is whimsical, in keeping with the bustling City Centre neighborhood that surrounds the property. These condos, located at 155-159 Dundas Street East, just off Jarvis Street, according to the team at Diamond Schmitt Architects.

Highlights

  • Located in the downtown Toronto
  • 5 minute walk from TTC Station
  • 10 -minute drive to Distillery District
  • 5 minute drive from Bloor-Danforth line
  • Easy access to Gardiner Expressway
  • Nearby parks include Fred Victor Community Tennis Courts, John Innes Community Recreation Centre and Moss Park

Neighborhood

This downtown neighborhood, known as the Garden District, has acquired a beautiful character over its long history, probably best evident in its residential architecture, which is a mix of contemporary Toronto condos, Victorian villas, and Edwardian row homes.

Transportation

The nearest significant junction to PACE Condos is Dundas and Jarvis. This means that vehicles may reach the Gardiner Expressway in only five minutes by driving south on Jarvis. Alternatively, residents wanting the TTC must travel an equivalent distance to the nearest subway station, Dundas on the Yonge-University-Spadina Line.

This subway line goes north and south, passing via Union Station and the PACE Condominiums. Residents traveling east and west throughout the city can utilize it to connect to the Bloor-Danforth line, or they can take one of the several streetcars available in their region.

Outdoor

For those who aren't big fans of residential architecture, the Garden District has a lot more to offer: eclectic and affordable restaurants, markets, and cafes; an array of art galleries; nearby cinemas and theaters like the Adelaide Theatre Admin and Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres; and concerts at historic Massey Hall. In addition, being only a short walk from the Eaton Centre and St. Lawrence Market, as well as the historic Distillery District, are all advantages.

Amenities

The 272 units of the PACE Condos cannot be described without including interior designers Cecconi Simone. The elegant and functional linear design of the suites is unique to their work. The apartments at 155-159 Dundas East are not only beautiful, but also quite comfortable. Corian worktops, stainless steel appliances, and a warm glass tile mosaic backsplash are featured in the kitchens. Their bathrooms are ultra-comfortable, with porcelain tiles, large soaking tubs or glass-framed showers, and exquisite European vanities, depending on the design.

The apartments range in size from just over 400 to almost 900 square feet and are available in studio, one, or two bedroom configurations. These condos may be best suited for young professionals and couples looking for Downtown Toronto condos for sale. Regardless, these suites will be pleasant for all prospective purchasers. Many have enormous balconies, and the floor-to-ceiling windows in all of the suites guarantee that they are light and airy houses.
