Mid-rise condo in Toronto

There’s a drama unfolding at Queen and Bathurst.

In 2018, Symmetry developers masterfully executed Teeple Architect‘s vision for 202 Bathurst Street. As innovative as the architecture is, it is the development’s intimate ambiance that makes the Origami Lofts in Toronto a must-see for prospective homebuyers.

This real estate property is a 7-story, 24-unit mixed-use structure with bedroom layouts ranging from studio to two-bedroom with den ranging in size from 775 square feet. Though its small size entails fewer amenities, its location in Trinity Bellwoods and only steps away from lively Queen West provides residents with all they may need.

The design of Origami Loft is unlike any other in Toronto. The result is a stunning series of geometrical folds and sleek cuts inspired by the complicated shapes of ancient Japanese paper folding. Each perspective shows a fresh pattern and an entirely new experience.

Teeple Architect drew inspiration for the Origami Lofts building from more than just the complex beauty of paper cranes: the values behind the Japanese tradition – fun and harmony – are woven throughout its design. In response to Toronto’s development restrictions in the region, Teeple Architects transformed the site’s required step-backs and inclined planes into works of art.

Highlights

Neighborhood

The distinctive architectural style of Origami Lofts reflects the distinct rhythm and pulse of the Kensington-Chinatown neighbourhood. Folded into a dynamic location, it provides an outstanding lifestyle for people from all walks of life.

Residents are just stepping away from a fantastic shopping experience: whether you’re looking for large brands or independent or designer items, the neighbourhood offers something for everyone. Furthermore, family-friendly amenities such as professional services and facilities, famous universities, public transportation access, outdoor spaces, and much more can be found here, making it an outstanding destination to live and visit.

King Streetcar

Transportation

For a long time, Bathurst Street has been one of Toronto‘s busiest streets; as a result, public transportation services the region well. The 511 Bathurst Streetcar, which runs north to Bathurst Station and south to Exhibition, stops a few steps away at Queen Street for Origami Lofts residents.

Alternatively, from the Beaches to Humber Bay, the 501 Queen streetcar runs east and west across the city. When the train arrives at Osgoode or Queen Station, commuters can transfer to the subway.

Those who prefer driving may reach the Gardiner Expressway in a matter of minutes by taking the route south from 202 Bathurst. Motorists will like the fast pace along the lakeside as well as the fact that it quickly connects to the 427 and Don Valley Parkway.

Education

Not only that, but this area is home to some of the city’s top schools, including Ryerson Community School, Ogden Junior Public School, Beverly School, and Heydon Park Secondary School, all of which are among the best for primary and secondary students.

Those looking to pursue their education may take a short drive to OCAD University or the University of Toronto, both of which are around a 10-minute drive away.

Outdoor

For Torontonians, the Kensington-Chinatown neighbourhood is a treasured community. Kensington’s views and fragrances will stun you with its dazzling selection of food shops, restaurants, novelty shops, pop-up shops, artists, vintage apparel and jewelry, and more.

Furthermore, there are several fruit and vegetable markets in this area, with goods spilling out into the streets. Along its stretch, there are also a plethora of Chinese restaurants where you may enjoy authentic Chinese cuisine.

There are also multiple parks in the vicinity for those who enjoy being outside, and residents will have access to a variety of walking pathways and lush foliage. Bellevue Square, located in the middle of the community, serves as a park and meeting place for residents of Origami Lofts.

The Origami concept continues throughout the suite floor plans, which are named after traditional animal shapes such as the Camel and Crane. Fortunately, the animal affinity ends there—all of these suites are state-of-the-art dwellings with thoughtful DK Studios amenities.

The building’s architecture lets enough light enter the open-concept floor plans of the suites. The rooms appear spacious and elegant, with 9-foot ceilings and engineered hardwood flooring.

Furthermore, every suite includes a balcony or patio with gas barbecue hookups, which increases living space even further (great for entertaining friends on a gorgeous summer night) and many other interiors and amenities to mention.
