BAZIS’ latest condominium residence, a 30-storey mixed-use tower designed by R. Varacalli Architect, has an absolutely iconic address. Located at 100 Bond Street, just off of Yonge-Dundas Square and along the southern edge of Ryerson University’s campus, this beautiful property is centrally-located in Toronto’s Garden District, just steps away from some of downtown Toronto’s best attractions.
Let’s take a closer look at this incredible location and all of the amenities nearby, from world-renowned universities and first-class restaurants to some of the city’s best concert venues and entertainment options.
Could this be the neighbourhood of your next dream home?
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
100 Bond St. is just minutes away from all that Toronto has to offer – from incredible schools and boutique shops to world-class restaurants and top-notch entertainment.
Ryerson University is just across the corner, offering impressive educational opportunities to residents and bringing a wide range of educated students from all around the world to the neighbourhood. Ryerson’s campus includes the Ryerson Image Centre, a photographic museum which is home to The Black Star Collection and the yearly Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival. 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.
Live at the Centre of It All
This neighbourhood is also home to many boutique shops, beautiful street art, and top-rated restaurants as well as local favourites such as Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, which is just a block away from 100 Bond St.
Downtown Toronto and the Garden District are also the place to be if you enjoy live music, theatre, art and culture, and other forms of entertainment. The internationally-famous Massey Hall, Toronto’s best performing arts theatre and concert venue, is just a 5-minute walk away from 100 Bond St., and attracts many of the world’s leading celebrities, artists, and musicians. 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.
Walk, Bike, and Get Around the City with Ease
When it comes to accessibility and being in the centre of it all, 100 Bond St. has nearly a perfect score. With a walk score of 99 (scored out of 100), everything you need is within reach and just a short walk away. From dropping off your dry cleaning to picking up groceries to running errands, 100 Bond St.’s central location makes everyday living a breeze.
100 Bond St. also has a perfect transit score of 100, and is classified by the City of Toronto as a Rider’s Paradise with easy access to world-class public transportation. 100 Bond St. is just a two-minute walk from the 505 Dundas streetcar at the Dundas St. East and Church St. stop. You’re also just minutes away from Line 1 of the Yonge-University subway line, the 501 Queen streetcar, and the 301 Queen. Hop on the subway or streetcar and find your way around the city with ease – and best of all, you can enjoy the commute and not have to worry about traffic.
This central address also has a bike score of 96, and has smooth connections to bike trails along the Toronto waterfront.
Looking to travel a bit further? Our new residence at 100 Bond St. is planned to include four car-share parking spaces, so you can easily access a car and jet off to Muskoka for a long weekend gathering with family, Wasaga Beach for a get-together with friends, or wherever your heart takes you.
Stay Grounded and Connected to Nature
Despite being located right downtown in the City of Toronto, 100 Bond St. is also located close to many parks, so you can get outdoors for a hike or nature walk. Beautiful, lush and verdant retreats are close to home, including Trinity Square Labyrinth, Larry Sefton Park, Joseph Sheard Parkette, Moss Park, and Allan Gardens.
And whether you enjoy daily walking or enjoy more high-energy recreational activities and sports, 100 Bond St.’s central downtown Toronto location means you’re close to all the activities you love, whether it’s playing tennis, participating in a sports league, or spending time doing water sports on Lake Ontario.
100 Bond St. is a highly-desirable address, and we’re looking forward to building a beautiful condominium here and to welcoming many new homeowners to this incredible location.

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. Buyers can rest assured that when a development holds the BAZIS brand, it is synonymous with the luxury living, unique design, and outstanding quality, evident in BAZIS’ remarkable track record of Toronto developments, including Crystal Blu, Emerald Park, Exhibit, and 1 Yorkville.

Read our blog post “40+ Shops, Restaurants, and Amenities Near Eglinton and Victoria Park at Bartley Towns” to learn more about the many amenities close to home in this family-friendly neighbourhood.
As we wrote in “Bartley Towns: Why It’s a Great Investment and Everything You Need to Know About the Grand Opening,” Bartley Towns’ neighbourhood is also known as Victoria Village or Victoria Park Village. 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.

The long-anticipated launch of BAZIS’ newest Toronto townhome community, Bartley Towns, is finally here!
Ideally located at Eglinton and Victoria Park within an established residential neighbourhood that’s also in the midst of a commercial and residential revitalization, Bartley Towns is the family-friendly Toronto community that many residents have been eagerly awaiting. What’s more, it’s an incredible neighbourhood to invest in.
Many Toronto residents have spent the last 16 to 17 weeks in some degree of isolation due to the COVID-19 crisis, and during this time have looked around the place they live and realized that they’re in need of a change. The new townhomes at Victoria Park and Eglinton, Bartley Towns, offer just that.
With access to the DVP north and south highway immediately adjacent to Bartley Towns as well as easy access to the new Eglinton LRT, the community is perfectly situated. The townhomes also offer incredible designs, beautiful finishes, and limited time exclusive incentives.
The Toronto Real Estate Market Is as Strong as Ever
In July 2020, we’re currently in the midst of what is really, for many, a surprising recovery in terms of the Toronto real estate market. In the past few months, we’ve seen a slow and steady recovery, with each month doubling the sales results of the previous month. June sales levels were back up to what would be expected pre-pandemic.
Post-COVID-19 Real Estate Market Recovered
With 8,700 resales last month, the real estate market shows that it has bounced back to the numbers that would be expected during normal times. These resales cover all product ranges and types, particularly townhomes, which have seen very strong demand and growth.
Pricing, too, has bounced back. Prices have risen between 10-14% the past month, reflecting the tight supply and high demand.
These numbers show that consumers are ready to buy. Although they’ve been sitting on the sidelines watching how the pandemic plays out, they’re now ready to jump into the market and buy. If you’ve been considering buying a new home or townhome in Toronto, now is the time to act – especially since supply is low and builders like BAZIS are now offering special incentives.

An Exclusive Collection of Just 84 Townhomes
The exquisite collection of just 84 townhomes are all freehold townhomes, which means that you own the home itself.
The townhomes share a common element – the roadway – and so there is a monthly maintenance fee, although it is very low at just $113.95/month.

When buying a new home in Toronto or any other urban area, many of the options on the market are either townhomes or condos. These two types of housing often elicit many questions from potential homeowners and bring up many points of confusion, especially when it comes to homeownership and shared/communal spaces. This blog post will break down the differences between townhomes and condos and will help you determine which one is best for you and your family.
First things first. Most people understand that townhomes (or townhouses) are individual houses that are built side by side, with one or two walls of each home being shared with the home next to it, whereas condos are a type of home that are often an apartment within a larger complex or building (although they can take other forms, including townhomes!).
Here are some important differences between these two types of home:
With a condo, you own the interior of the residence (your unit) only. Exterior parts of the residence, such as the building itself and the outdoor grounds, as well as communal areas such as gyms, party rooms, and rooftop BBQ areas, are owned by the condo association. Condo associations represent the condo owners and their interests. They’re run and funded by the condo residents and also have boards of directors. The role of the boards is to organize regular meetings, establish and maintain budgets, and enforce rules and regulations relating to the condo. If you’re a condo owner, you, therefore, are a joint owner of the communal and common areas. This means you will have to pay a monthly fee.
New townhomes in Toronto can be either freehold or condominium. If they’re freehold (like our upcoming Bartley Towns community of new luxurious townhomes at Eglinton and the DVP), that means that you fully own the house and also the land on which it is built, as well as any yard or deck surrounding it (similarly to how homeowners of detached homes own their homes and yards outright). Freehold townhomes do not have any monthly maintenance fees.
Condominium townhomes, by contrast, do not include land ownership. Similar to the condo apartments discussed above, residents only own the interior of their home, and the land on which the home is built – as well as the common areas surrounding it, if applicable – are jointly owned amongst all owners. This ownership is again managed through a condo association and involves a monthly fee.
Condos are governed by legal statutes, whereas townhomes are not. This means that condo owners have less autonomy since they’re subject to the bylaws outlined by the condo corporation. Residents may not be able to make changes to their homes and may face restrictions regarding the type of exterior decorations they’re allowed to put up, whether or not pets are allowed, rules regarding common areas’ use and open hours, garbage and recycling rules, and also whether or not they’re allowed to rent out their home.
By contrast, owners of freehold townhomes are entirely free to do whatever they like with their homes.
Condo owners generally experience a lower level of privacy, especially condo apartments, since they live in close quarters with many other residents and share communal entrances and exits. Owners of new townhomes in Toronto, especially freehold townhomes, are more likely to have a greater sense of autonomy, privacy, and independence.
A Summary of the Main Differences
To recap: condo owners only own the inside of their homes, and they’re joint owners of the building’s exterior and communal areas. Townhome owners may have the same situation if the townhome is a condo. For freehold townhomes, however, residents fully own their house and also the land it’s built on and the surrounding yard or deck. Freehold townhomes do not have maintenance fees, while condos do. Condos are governed by legal statutes, whereas townhomes aren’t. This means that owners of freehold townhomes have more autonomy. Lastly, people who live in freehold townhomes generally experience a greater degree of privacy and independence.

Townhomes are like the Goldilocks of living in Toronto. You get your own home – including all the roominess and outdoor space of a detached home – with all the convenience and ease of condo living. With a townhome, you get the best of both worlds.
Townhomes typically include multiple floors, designated parking spaces, and a shared wall with another home or homes. Townhome communities usually include shared communal spaces and are generally regulated by a homeowners’ association, which ensures that community maintenance and upkeep are taken care of and that everyone in the community abides by certain rules or guidelines.
If you’re considering buying a new home or condo in Toronto, townhomes are an excellent option to consider. Here are the top five benefits of living in a townhome.
Affordability and Cost Savings
Townhome living offers unparalleled affordability. Townhomes take up less land than single-family homes and are more cost-effective to build, so they’re more affordable to buy. This has great benefits for families as it allows them to get more home for less.
Townhomes also boast lower property taxes than detached homes and lower utility bills, since the shared walls between townhomes help to prevent heat loss and conserve energy.
Owners of townhomes also typically enjoy cost savings when it comes to home maintenance costs. While single-family homes can have many maintenance fees – everything from landscaping to roof repairs to driveway maintenance must be taken into consideration in the budget – many of these concerns don’t apply to townhomes or are covered by the homeowners’ association.
Townhomes are often less expensive than single-family detached homes in the same area, so they let homeowners live in great neighborhoods for a lower cost. Townhomes tend to be centrally located close to transit, shopping, restaurants, schools, entertainment options, and more.
Our upcoming Bartley Towns luxury townhome community, for example, is ideally situated in an ideal Toronto neighborhood at Victoria Park and Eglinton East. This established residential neighborhood in North York is amid a commercial and residential revitalization thanks to the planned Eglinton Crosstown LRT transit extension currently under construction. Best of all, Bartley Towns is close to numerous public and private schools, libraries, community centers, and parks with ample green space and walking trails, making it a perfect place for families to live and grow.
Single Family Living Without the Maintenance
Owning and maintaining a detached home can be a lot of work, and it can be both time-consuming and expensive. From yard work such as pulling weeds, trimming shrubs, and cutting the grass to landscaping to seasonal outdoor work like cleaning eavestroughs and shoveling snow, the list of tasks and chores can be endless. And then there are the bigger maintenance items and repairs to consider, like roof and driveway repairs or repainting your home’s exterior to keep it looking fresh.
With a townhome, you don’t have to worry about any of that. In townhome communities, the homeowners’ association typically handles all maintenance to your home’s exterior as well as to shared outdoor amenities such as parking lots, driveways, and other common areas.
Maintenance-free living is ideal for today’s busy families. It gives you more time to focus on what matters most: spending time with your family. Whether cooking a special meal together, playing sports, or a board game together or simply enjoying each other’s company, you’ll be grateful for the opportunity to relax with your family instead of attending to a never-ending chores checklist.
A Community Vibe
Townhome communities are vibrant, fun places to live because they foster a sense of community and togetherness. As neighbors live close to each other, they tend to get to know each other and to become quite friendly. Townhome living is a great way to make new friends, to meet playmates for your children, and to add a touch of safety and friendliness to your everyday life. Even living in a big city like Toronto, you’ll find yourself bumping into your neighbors and sharing a smile and a chat. Being part of a community is a wonderful feeling and is good for your mental health.
This sense of community also contributes to security, as neighbors know each other and will be more likely to notice and alert each other of any unusual noise, activities, or suspicious visitors. You’ll also have friendly neighbors nearby should you need someone to pick up your mail or keep an eye on your home while you’re out of town on a work trip or family vacation.
Stunning Shared Spaces
Another benefit of townhome living is that you get to enjoy beautiful common areas and amenities, including yards and parks. These are more expansive and luxurious than they would be if they were owned and used by just one family alone, and you don’t need to worry about any of the maintenance.
Townhome living offers all the luxury and spaciousness of single-family living at a lower cost than living in a detached home, and with a more carefree, maintenance-free lifestyle. It’s the perfect way to get all the benefits of living in a great neighborhood while also getting to enjoy more precious time with your family.
