We love a good healthy juice and that’s why we told you about The Good Press in Yorkville a few months ago. Well, our E Condos residents don’t have to hop on the subway and head down to Yorkville for a good juice anymore, because Greenhouse Juice Co. just opened up in the ‘hood!

Being a part of the Yorkville community really means having access to some of the greatest things Toronto has to offer. Our city has a vibrant arts culture and Yorkville has been a hub for that since their hippy days in the 60s, up to today with the AGO, Canada’s largest art gallery, just a […]

It’s been a couple months since our last update at E Condos and although it doesn’t look like we’ve moved ahead, this progress is right on schedule.

We love cool condo amenities quite a bit. We’ve made that very clear with our big plans for 1 Yorkville. Our newest Yorkville building will have a 14,000-square-foot expanse devoted to a spa, open-air pool and hot tub – which we’re confident our residents will love. Then there’s the wellness centre which has water massage […]

Domes, domes, domes. They’re everywhere, and so we really can’t say that this is a new architectural trend, because it definitely isn’t – they’ve been around for hundreds and hundreds of years. We all know what a dome is, but do you know why people have been incorporating them into buildings for so many years? […]

Home Decor & Furniture Stores in Yorkville One of the best parts about moving to a new condo is getting new furniture. We understand that you don’t always need to buy new chairs, sofas and tables when moving to a new home, but it just seems like a good time to do it! We took […]

Architecture Trends: Prefabricated Buildings

Prefabricated Buildings Architecture

Architecture-lovers know this trend quite well, but for those who are unfamiliar with prefabricated buildings, worry less; we’ll fill you in! Basically, when you hear the term “pre-fabricated building,” think of it as several factory-built units or components that are then built on the site to complete the building.

The pieces are already made and then usually shipped to another location to be assembled into one building. Pretty cool, right? The building is almost fully constructed before it even gets to the site and becomes a building. Many prefer it because it cuts construction time down dramatically. (more…)
