Canderel Introduces St.Clair Village

Canderel Introduces St.Clair Village

There are few neighbourhoods in Toronto where everyone knows your name. The stretch of St. Clair West that passes through Wychwood, Hillcrest and Regal Heights is one of them, and will now welcome Canderel’s St.Clair Village.

Nestled right in the middle of the action, St.Clair Village captures the City’s new urban vision for St. Clair Avenue West. 

“The city worked extensively with surrounding communities in a series of Avenue Studies to ensure the local character of the neighbourhood is preserved, while allowing this part of the city to grow and flourish. Every element of the streetscape along St. Clair is balanced. Wide sidewalks, a dedicated streetcar lane, mixed-use zoning and boutique retail storefronts, create the ideal environment for mid-rise development,” says James Deitcher, Director of Development, Residential Group, Canderel. “It’s a long-term vision that we are proud to be part of.”

A neighbourhood characterized by the brick houses of “old” Toronto for more than 100 years, St. Clair stands proud. While the streetcar track may have changed, the same community spirit now ushers in younger families and a new wave of millennial-focused business into the area.

Canderel’s St.Clair Village pays homage to its roots. Designed by Quadrangle, the 12-storey brick residence cladded in cordoven bronze and maroon red brick features dark bronze window mullions. “The design is subtle in its form with dynamic tactile textures and details. The intention was for the building to become part of the neighbourhood, as if it had always been there,” says Richard Witt, Principal at Quadrangle. 

“Another main driver for the design was to enhance street life along St. Clair,” says Witt. A framed glass façade creates a dynamic retail experience with amenity spaces strategically placed on the second level to further animate activity on the street.

Well served by transit, St.Clair Village is minutes from St. Clair West subway station, providing a quick 20-minute ride to the downtown core. Residents of St.Clair Village can also enjoy the pristine green spaces and community amenities of nearby Cedarvale, Casa Loma and Forest Hill neighbourhoods.

In sync with the community’s renewed urban energy, residential interiors tie the old and the new with sleek lines and refined textures. A monochromatic geometric screen, cove lighting and stone accents create a warm entrance.  “We brought the warmth of the neighbourhood’s architecture inside, with a slight transition to a lighter, modern palette,” says Kathy Chow, Interior Designer, Canderel. “As a result, interiors showcase a play between light and dark.”

Suite layouts accommodate a range of demographics, from young professionals to families and downsizers, including a large percentage with three-bedrooms. The building’s L shape design favours highly desirable corner layouts.  Purchasers also have the opportunity to combine select units.

Distinct social spaces provide options for large or intimate gatherings. Wine collectors can entertain with a featured temperature-controlled wine storage lounge. A fitness studio overlooking St. Clair includes top-of-the line exercise equipment including TRX props and cardio equipment with built-in tablets for live class streaming.

With projects in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, Canderel is known for creating communities that lead the transformation of neighbourhoods, including: DNA 1, 2 +3 on King West; Residences of College Park, Aura at College Park and the soon to be completed YC Condos at Yonge and College. Canderel was the first developer to build on Etobicoke’s waterfront and is currently in the process of transforming a significant piece of downtown Montreal with the anticipated Tour Des Canadiens master-planned community. With an ear to the ground in Toronto, Canderel has identified 900 and 908 St. Clair West as their next opportunity to bring value to an emerging destination in the city with St.Clair Village.

One bedroom to three-bedroom suites at St.Clair Village range from 450 – 1300 Sq. ft, and are priced from the mid -$400s to over $1 million. Launching this spring, the presentation centre will be located at 805 St. Clair West. To register visit:

With their finger on the pulse of what’s new and needed in urban real estate, Canderel and Claridge are proud to announce that in the fall of 2019, Microsoft Research Montreal will move to a newly constructed building at 6795 Marconi Street. Located in the heart of Mile-Ex, the global hub for companies invested in artificial intelligence research, the AI lab’s new office space will be triple the size of its current premises.

With a total of 110,000 square feet, 6795 Marconi is at the forefront of a wave of office development in the area. Construction of the property is slated for completion in mid-2019. “A new generation of workspace is in demand in Montreal, which has experienced tremendous growth over the past year,” says Bradley Birks, Canderel’s Vice-President of leasing for the region. “We’re very happy to have Microsoft Research Montreal as a tenant and to be collaborating with them to deliver the premises they need to successfully carry out their pioneering work.”

“With prominent technology companies like Microsoft investing heavily in top talent, we’re proud to support their objectives by providing 6795 Marconi’s occupants with best-in-class amenities. Exceptional ceiling heights, indoor bike storage and a private rooftop terrace, with an adjacent green roof, are just a few of the unique features of the space,” adds Eric Cordon, Associate at Canderel and the project lead.

Jennifer Chayes, Technical Fellow and Managing Research Director of the New England, NYC and Montreal research labs, shared her enthusiasm for the new site. “I’m thrilled that the Microsoft Research Montreal lab will be relocating to the Mile-Ex area. The proximity to MILA and other AI labs is essential to collaboration efforts and will strengthen the AI research ecosystem. I’m genuinely excited by the prospect of the cutting-edge innovation that will emerge from this extraordinary environment.”

“The AI research community in Montreal is constantly collaborating and exchanging ideas,” says Wayne Heuff, Executive Vice-President and Managing Director of Claridge Real Estate. “With other groundbreaking AI labs moving into Mile-Ex, like the new Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA), everyone benefits. We’re delighted to be partnering with Canderel on this project and are big believers in the future of Mile-Ex as the nucleus of Montreal’s AI community.”

The building’s tenants will appreciate plenty of natural sunlight and have access to a 2,500-square-foot landscaped green space, as well as indoor bike racks and indoor parking. Historically an industrial area, Mile-Ex is an increasingly sought-after destination for office space due to its creative energy, mix of trendsetting restaurants and cafés, proximity to Little Italy with its old-school charm, and the nearby Jean-Talon Market, the city’s best-known farmers’ market since 1933. From 6795 Marconi, it’s a short walk to the Parc metro and train stations or to De Castelnau metro.
