Bartley Towns: Why It’s a Great Investment and Everything You Need to Know About the Grand Opening

Bartley Towns

This weekend, the Grand Opening of Bartley Towns, BAZIS’ newest Toronto townhome community, is officially here. Bartley Towns is ideally situated at Eglinton and Victoria Park within an established residential neighbourhood and near an area that’s in the midst of a commercial and residential revitalization. It’s a great community and neighbourhood to invest in, and it’s now open for sale.

Everyone knows the number one rule and mantra of buying real estate: location, location, location. BAZIS prides itself on building in prime neighbourhoods throughout the City of Toronto, and Bartley Towns is no exception. This community of just 84 townhouses is located in close proximity to the DVP north and south highway and minutes away from the new Eglinton LRT, perfectly situating the community for ease of commuting and getting around Toronto.

Read on to learn why buying a Bartley Towns townhome is a great investment and all the details you need to know about the Grand Opening this weekend.

Making a Good Real Estate Investment in Toronto

When it comes to making a solid real estate purchase and investment in the City of Toronto, there are a few key factors that come into play:

  • Location
  • Quality
  • Potential

 

Bartley Towns is a sure winner in the location department. The townhome community is located on Victoria Park just a bit south of Eglinton and just east of the DVP, 600 metres to the Sloane LRT stop and about a 10-minute walk to Eglinton Square. Eglinton Square is going through a major redevelopment, which adds to the “potential” quality. And BAZIS is a renowned, reputable builder known for building high-quality, luxurious living spaces with the utmost attention to detail. Location, quality and potential: check, check and check.

Let’s explore each category closer.

Location

Eglinton Square

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. The community boasts numerous public and private schools (Bartley Towns has 17 schools within a 20-kilometre radius), libraries, community centres and parks with ample green space and walking trails as well as movie theatres, museums, grocery stores, and several public transit options, all of which add to the appeal for families. The neighbourhood also has an impressive 55 restaurants, bars and coffee shops, which makes it a great place to explore and to enjoy an evening out. 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.

Neighbourhood Walk Score

The neighbourhood also has a strong bike score of 57, an excellent walk score of 69 and a solid transit score of 68. Residents will benefit from the brand new LRT, which is scheduled to be completed by May 2022 (well before Bartley Towns move-ins begin). The Eglinton Crosstown LRT’s development and construction represents an $8.4 billion investment and is set to be a major Toronto transportation artery in the near future. Victoria Village residents can also take advantage of the 24-hour bus service along Victoria Park Avenue, which connects to the Bloor-Danforth subway line.

Bartley Towns’ Exclusive Opening Is 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.

Townhomes vs. Condos: Do You Know the Differences?

new townhome development in Toronto - Bazis

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:

Ownership

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.

Legal Statutes

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.

Privacy

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.

The Benefits of Living in a Toronto Townhome

Luxury Bartley Townhomes

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.

Amazing Locations

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.

Luxury New Townhomes in One of Toronto’s Most Established Communities

Nestled into the tree-lined enclave at Eglinton and Victoria Park, Bartley Towns brings contemporary style and urban refinement to one of Toronto’s most established family communities. Integrated into the namesake Bartley Park, these freehold townhomes gracefully balance idyllic surroundings with the energy and sophistication of urban life.

Luxury New Townhomes in an Ideal Toronto Neighbourhood

The Bartley Towns, contemporary townhome development which features 3, 4 and 5 bedroom layouts with spacious kitchens, expansive outdoor terraces, and impressive finishes are ideally situated in an established residential neighborhood in North York that’s amid a commercial and residential revitalization thanks to the planned Eglinton Crosstown LRT transit extension currently under construction.

Bartley Towns is perfectly situated to meet the growing needs of families. It’s close to numerous public and private schools, libraries, community centers and parks with ample green space and walking trails. Nearby amenities include movie theatres, museums, grocery stores, and several public transit options. While Bartley Towns is close to the action in terms of transportation, retail and commercial redevelopment, the area is distinctly separate from the hustle and bustle of the main streets, providing a quiet oasis for families to enjoy.

Your Neighbourhood: The Place to Be

Bartley Towns is an urban, contemporary sanctuary located in the midst of it all. The community’s modern homes overlook the mature trees of Bartley Park – your serenity in the center of the city.

The neighborhood is vibrant and central. Located along the stretch of Eglinton Avenue known as the Golden Mile, it’s close to Eglinton Square, the CF Shops at Don Mills, Eglinton Town Centre and other attractions.

You’ll make the absolute most of your neighborhood by walking over to catch a movie at the Eglinton Town Centre Cinemas, or dropping into a hot new restaurant while out for an evening stroll along the Golden Mile. And look forward to staying safe in the bike lanes while running errands and exploring your neighborhood on two wheels.

A New Golden Mile

With Queen Elizabeth presiding over its opening in the 1950s, what was dubbed the “Golden Mile” became a symbol of affluence after World War II – a stretch of Eglinton Avenue characterized by its busy strip malls and parking lots full of shoppers.

In 2020, the Golden Mile Shopping Centre is 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 midrise residential, and inviting public spaces. The revitalization will result in a pedestrian-friendly urban village with multiple city squares, 100+ world-class retail and dining destinations, and an enviable “walk score.”

Just a 5-minute walk from Bartley Towns, the new Golden Mile, and Eglinton Square will offer one-stop shopping for residents, along with excellent dining and services, all just minutes away.

The New Eglinton Square

Eglinton Square, long a retail landmark located at Victoria Park Avenue and Eglinton Avenue, is now undergoing a major revitalization centered around the existing shopping center. Designed by Quadrangle Architects, the redevelopment will not touch the mall itself but transform the site into a high-quality mixed-use community through the creation of a public piazza, five residential and commercial towers ranging from 25 to 40 storeys, and many stacked townhomes.

The Eglinton Square Shopping Centre is currently home to over 75 major retailers including Hudson’s Bay, Metro, Shoppers Drug Mart, and more. Excellent shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and more are all here, just a short walk away from Bartley Towns. The redevelopment’s new and enhanced street-level retail and public spaces will offer a much more pedestrian-friendly experience.

Nature in the City

Overlooking Bartley Park is just the beginning, no other urban community in Toronto has better access to so many natural amenities.

Are you a runner? A cyclist? A hiker? A birdwatcher? Reinvigorate your mind, body, and spirit on the endless trails of the Don Valley ravine, just a short walk from your front door.

Are you a golfer? Hit the links within 5 minutes at the Flemingdon Park Golf Club.

Do you have a green thumb? Start your organic garden, just up the street at the Jonesville Allotment Gardens.

The City at Hand

Bartley Towns is set right by the intersection of Eglinton and Victoria Park, making it one of Toronto’s best-connected places to live. You will be a short walk away to the bustling energy of the Golden Mile and a quick jaunt away from the downtown core. The Don Valley Parkway is just around the bend, and Sloane Station on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is a moment’s walk from your doorstep.

With 25 stops between East and West Toronto, the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit line will connect you to the entire TTC system. Direct links to 3 subway stations, 3 GO Transit stations, and dozens of bus lines will make your home profoundly accessible.

Bartley Towns’ prime location will make commuting and getting around the city a breeze.

The New Eglinton Crosstown LRT

Bartley Towns is just minutes from the future Eglinton Crosstown, the light rail transit (LRT) line that is scheduled for completion in 2021.

The Crosstown – an $8.4B initiative that is the largest transit expansion in Toronto’s history – will run east and west in a 19km corridor along Eglinton Avenue between Mount Dennis (Weston Road) and Kennedy subway station. There will be 25 stops along the way, and links to 54 bus routes, three subways stations, and GO Transit lines. Right-of-way transit lanes, separated from regular traffic and with priority signaling at intersections, will help ensure the LRT’s speed and reliability.

The Crosstown will run at an average speed of 28 km/hr, which is 4 km/hr faster than the TTC’s downtown subway. It will carry many more passengers and move up to 60 percent faster than the existing bus service on Eglinton Avenue, with travel times to downtown Toronto significantly reduced.

Inspiring Young Minds

Eglinton and Victoria Park is one of Toronto’s most sought-after neighborhoods for urban families. As a long-established community, it has no shortage of options for nearby public and private education, including the prestigious Seneca Hill Private School and French-language École Élémentaire Jeanne-Lajoie, both less than 10 minutes away.

After class, your children will find endless stimulation at the local Toronto Public Library and numerous community centers and world-class cultural destinations, including the Aga Khan Museum and the beloved Ontario Science Centre.
