Canderel and KingSett Capital’s landmark development, St. Clair Village, unveils new LCBO for Toronto’s budding west end neighbourhood. LCBO is the first retail tenant to be announced for the new community and will occupy more than 8,000 sq.ft. at the base of the mid-rise, 12-storey development, located in the project’s most prominent retail space.
Located at 900 St. Clair West, the LCBO’s framed glass façade will add a modern edge to the retail experience along St. Clair, while allowing the LCBO to seamlessly integrate into a neighbourhood that is quickly becoming well-known for its restaurants, green spaces, and multi-generational population. Designed by Quadrangle, 900 St. Clair West takes cues from the surrounding neighbourhood, paying homage to the iconic brick century homes of “old Toronto,” many of which have stood more than 100 years. New modern design, coupled with the LCBO’s focus on supporting local breweries and cideries, compliments the new wave of millennial-owned businesses in the area and the elevated high street feel of the community.
“We’re excited to bring a brand-new LCBO to the St. Clair West community, reflecting the continuing evolution and transformation taking place in this incredible neighbourhood,” says Brett Miller, CEO at CANDEREL. “Our goal was to secure an anchor tenant that would bring convenience, value, and high design to residents, and we wanted to work with an organization that has strong community ties. LCBO was a natural choice, as we’re all aware of their long-standing service to communities and support of local breweries across the province.”
Inside the new LCBO store, shoppers will be treated to a 50-ft. long wall of vintage wines, a beer alcove with prominently featured craft and premium beer selection, as well as a modern interior with open sight lines throughout the store, and contemporary finishes.
“We are thrilled to service the evolving St. Clair West community,” says Deborah Ramon, Manager, Design & Corporate Facilities at LCBO. “Our new store is a modern upgrade from our existing location and will provide an improved shopping experience for community members, expand our footprint and increase foot traffic in the area. We’re excited to showcase Ontario’s best wines, spirits, beers and ready-to-drink cocktails to shoppers in a beautifully designed space.”
900 St. Clair West will stand as a mid-rise, 12-storey condominium. Thoughtfully designed to reflect the existing fabric within a historic, family-oriented pocket of the city, the St. Clair Collection and generous combo suites sitting at 2,000 sq.ft. will offer expansive three-bedroom layouts optimized for small families, young professionals, and downsizers. Distinct social spaces provide options for large or intimate gatherings. Wine collectors can entertain with a featured temperature-controlled wine storage lounge and fitness buffs will enjoy the expansive gym overlooking St. Clair.
Construction is well underway, with 80 per cent sold out and completion targeted for end of 2021. Penthouse suites are still available at 900 St. Clair West. 2-bedroom suites starting from $819,900 and 3-bedroom suites from $1,252,900.
