As 2022 comes to a close, we’d like to take a moment to reflect on the past year and to share our progress with you. From selling out of some communities to launching a new site and building meaningful partnerships with other developers, here’s a look at what we’ve accomplished this year.
This year, we were proud to announce our partnership with Tridel on our highly anticipated Queen Church condos. Located at 60 Queen Street East in the heart of Toronto’s most historic district, Queen Church is designed by Rosario Varacalli and II BY IV DESIGN, and hosts leading-edge indoor and outdoor amenities that spread across 16,000 square feet.
Queen Church features a designer selection of studio, 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom suites with carefully curated features and finishes chosen to complement your active, modern lifestyle.
Queen Church is in the pre-construction phase and is currently selling. Visit our Presentation Centre at 4800 Dufferin Street, Entrance B, North York, ON. Call 647-426-4638 to book an appointment today.
Last year, we sold out our Bartley Towns community in North York. Located at Eglinton Avenue and Victoria Park, Bartley Towns brings contemporary style and urban refinement to one of Toronto’s most established family communities. Bartley Towns is close to schools, libraries and parks with ample green space and walking trails, making it the perfect place for growing families. Bartley Towns is also ideally located within a neighbourhood that’s in the midst of a major commercial and residential revitalization, thanks to the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.
Construction is now in full swing at Bartley Towns and is scheduled for completion in 2023. We look forward to welcoming our new homeowners!
1366 Yonge Street
This year, we introduced a new location at 1366 Yonge Street in the Deer Park neighbourhood of Toronto. We submitted a proposal for a 41-storey, Rosario Varacalli-designed mixed use development consisting of 489 units. 48% of the total units will contain 2-3 bedrooms. These larger units are designed to suit all lifestyles and families of all sizes.

What a year it has been! As 2021 comes to a close, we’d like to take a look back on the past year and all the progress we’ve made. We’re so proud of all of our communities – each with its own unique design, attention to detail, luxurious amenities and prime locations within the City of Toronto and Greater Toronto Area. From selling out of some new home and condo communities to launching several new sites, here’s a look at what we’ve accomplished this year.
In 2021, we launched our exquisite 8 Wellesley condominium residence in partnership with Centre Court. The launch was an incredible success and the first phase sold out quickly. 8 Wellesley is a high-rise condominium development located at Yonge and Wellesley in the heart of downtown Toronto. Designed by IBI Group and GBCA Architects, 8 Wellesley will be a 50-storey tower with an expansive 5-storey podium. Located near Yorkville, the University Health Network and the University of Toronto, 8 Wellesley is redefining luxury inside and out with a Fendi-furnished lobby, state-of-the-art fitness centre, and outdoor lounge.
This year, we completed construction on our 1 Yorkville condominium residence and welcomed our new homeowners. The irreplaceable building is singular and sensational. Minutes away from this enviable address in Yorkville, homeowners can stroll through designer boutiques on Bloor Street or explore the latest hot spots on Yorkville Avenue.
This year, we also sold out our Bartley Towns community in North York. Nestled into the tree-lined enclave at Eglinton Avenue and Victoria Park, Bartley Towns brings contemporary style and urban refinement to one of Toronto’s most established family communities.
Construction is now underway at Bartley Towns and our construction and development teams have been making great progress. Demolition has been completed and the site has been cleared. Construction is coming along well and we’re looking forward to welcoming new homeowners to the community.

Getting to Know the Garden District
Downtown Toronto’s Garden District was so named by the Toronto East Downtown Residents Association (now called the Garden District Residents Association) in recognition of Allan Gardens, an indoor botanical garden located nearby at the intersection of Carlton and Jarvis Streets. The Garden District neighbourhood is bordered by Carlton Street to the north, Yonge Street to the west, Sherbourne Street to the east, and Queen Street to the south.
This neighbourhood is incredibly vibrant, and is filled with both historic buildings – including gorgeous old Victorian homes and heritage sites including the Mackenzie House Museum, the stunning Gallery Arcturus art gallery and museum, and the Merchandise Building – and modern amenities and entertainment. It’s a very walkable neighbourhood and when it comes to downtown Toronto, it doesn’t get more central than this!
A Trendy Neighbourhood You’ll Love to Call Home

It also includes the beautiful Ryerson Community Park, with its famous ice skating rink.
Stroll two blocks west and you’ll find yourself at Yonge-Dundas Square, a one-acre outdoor hub for live entertainment and the unofficial epicenter of Toronto’s downtown core. Our version of Times Square in New York City, Yonge-Dundas Square attracts visitors from across the Greater Toronto Area and around the world. You’ll love the vibrant energy that the Square offers! Living so close, you’ll have front row tickets to the wide range of activities taking place at the Square, from community celebrations and theatrical events to concerts, receptions, and promotions – events that appeal to residents and tourists alike – especially as COVID restrictions continue to ease up in the City of Toronto.

Other nearby entertainment venues include the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres for those who love a night out at the theatre, the Ed Mirvish Theatre (formerly Pantages Theatre and then the Canon Theatre) for some of the best musicals, dramas, and comedies on stage in Toronto, and Maple Leaf Gardens for the hockey fans.

The neighbourhood redevelopment, revitalization, and transformation triggered by the construction of the new Eglinton Crosstown LRT make BAZIS Bartley Towns the premier choice for Toronto homebuyers.
Toronto homebuyers are eager to purchase a unit at Bartley Towns, the new BAZIS Toronto townhome development in a neighbourhood with exciting and innovative revitalization and redevelopment. It is futile to ask why – BAZIS is renowned for their exceptional luxury builds, and Bartley Towns keeps in line with BAZIS’ signature style and focus on designing luxurious urban living spaces with the utmost attention to detail. Not only is it a masterpiece in planning, design and construction, Bartley Towns is also ideally located – steps away from the new Eglinton Crosstown LRT, the revitalized Eglinton Town Centre, and the planned redevelopment of the Golden Mile.
Located at Victoria Park Ave. and Eglinton Ave., Bartley Towns is in a quiet residential oasis surrounding Bartley Park. There are 84 freehold townhomes with 3, 4 and 5 bedroom layouts featuring spacious gourmet kitchens, ground floor dens, expansive outdoor terraces, private garages, and impressive finishes.
Just steps away, residents can find all the services and amenities they need, thanks to the neighbourhood redevelopment and revitalization efforts initiated by the Eglinton Crosstown LRT construction. The new transit corridor is scheduled for completion in 2022 and will completely transform the area.
Thanks to the Eglinton Crosstown LRT construction, the Golden Mile, which is currently a car-dependent area with big box stores, a strip mall, and parking lots, will be redeveloped into a vibrant mixed-use community with new residential buildings, commerce centres, and ample green space. Phase one of the Golden Mile redevelopment will include condominium towers, rental apartments, street-level retail storefronts, and office space. New pedestrian walkways, landscaped paths, and parks are planned to increase accessibility and connect residents to their community. The proposed Golden Mile Community Innovation District will also connect residents with a wide range of opportunities in industry, education, training, art, and culture. Further phases of the redevelopment include more residential and retail space, a new grocery store, as well as amenities and services to meet demands.
Current revitalization efforts and the approval of the Golden Mile redevelopment are exciting prospects for local businesses and residents alike, making BAZIS Bartley Towns the premier choice for homebuyers looking for luxury townhomes for sale in Toronto.
Over the last 15 years, Toronto has experienced a transformation in its skyline. BAZIS has played an important role in that redesign and has set the highest standards of excellence in the real estate industry.

This multicultural, diverse area features winding streets that are charming and pedestrian-friendly, and feels like a cozy enclave in the middle of the bustling City of Toronto. The area’s quiet streets, well-maintained homes and large lawns make it welcoming and picturesque, and the neighbourhood is highly appealing to young and growing families.
Even more exciting is the fact that this is just the beginning, as the neighbourhood is in the midst of a commercial and residential revitalization. The long-term vision for the neighbourhood is a walkable neighbourhood with street-front retail, bike lanes and excellent access to transit.
Here are some of the upcoming features and exciting future plans that you can expect to see at Bartley Towns:
Eglinton Crosstown LRT
The Eglinton Crosstown light rail transit (LRT) extension will run along Eglinton Avenue between Mount Dennis (Weston Road) and Kennedy station. This 19-kilometre corridor will include a 10-kilometre underground portion, between Keele Street and Laird Drive.
The Crosstown will have up to 25 stations and stops. It will link to 54 bus routes, three subway stations and various GO Transit lines. The Crosstown will provide fast, reliable and convenient transit by carrying passengers in dedicated right-of-way transit lanes separate from regular traffic. With an average speed of 28 kilometres per hour, the new LRT will let travellers get around the city up to 60% faster. The vehicles will use the PRESTO proof-of-payment system and will have multiple entrances and low floors to ensure fast and accessible boarding.
The project’s development and construction represent an $8.4 billion investment, and the LRT is set to be a major Toronto transportation artery in the near future. It’s the largest transit expansion in Toronto’s history.
The new LRT is currently under construction, with a planned completion date of May 2022 – just in time for your new Bartley Towns home to be completed.
Bartley Towns is located just 600 metres from the Sloane LRT stop, so commuting and getting around Toronto will be quick, easy and convenient.
The Sloane Crosstown stop will be at surface. The accessible stop will be a centre platform, with the stop located on the east side of the intersection of Bermondsey Road and Eglinton Avenue East. Between Brentcliffe Road and Victoria Park Avenue, there will be a 0.5 meter wide buffer on both sides of Eglinton to provide additional space between the bike lanes and vehicular lanes.
Eglinton Square, which is a 10-minute walk from Bartley Towns, is going through a major redevelopment. The area, which surrounds the Eglinton Square Shopping Centre, is undergoing a revitalization and densification as designed by renowned architects Quadrangle Architects.
The existing mall will remain in its entirety, while the surrounding area will transform into a mixed-use development, complete with a brand new supermarket and an additional 260,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
The Eglinton Square redevelopment joins a rapidly transforming Golden Mile neighbourhood.
The Golden Mile Revitalization
Named after the Golden Mile – the stretch of Eglinton Avenue characterized by its busy strip malls and parking lots full of shoppers, and so named in the 1950s – the Golden Mile Plaza has the popular Joe Fresh, a hair salon, a gym, and more. The Golden Mile Shopping Centre is currently undergoing an extensive and exciting revitalization, as part of the vibrant new mixed-use community that is now evolving there. A total of 11 new buildings are proposed in the master plan, bringing together prime retail and commercial space, high and mid-rise residential, and inviting public spaces.
The project includes ten new residential towers, a huge new central park, a series of publicly accessible open spaces, community-oriented retail, office uses, and a new food store.
This will reinforce Eglinton Avenue East as a more urban and dynamic corridor, and make it an even better place to live – close to all the amenities you and your family need.
