Pace Coming Soon The City’s Best New Condo Value At Dundas And Jarvis

TORONTO, ONTARIO, APRIL 4, 2011 – This spring, Great Gulf Homes will introduce Pace – a dramatic condominium tower at the corner of Dundas and Jarvis that offers unbeatable downtown Toronto value in new condo living. With suite prices beginning from just $209,990, Pace will be perfect for everyone who wants to live in the fast lane in the hub of the city, from savvy young professional first-time buyers to seasoned condo owners. Pace sets the pace for a new urban lifestyle.

Great Gulf’s newest entry into the condo scene is about being accessible, totally “metro”, and networking with the city. Pace is situated in a neighbourhood that’s equal parts old-world edge and new-world style. It’s a short pace to the Eaton Centre and Yonge Dundas Square for techno fashion and vintage charm … steak, salad or both … subway, streetcar or both. It’s also a leisurely pace to the St. Lawrence Market, live theatre, film, food – it’s all here in the neighbourhood, and will be home base for urban adventurers.

Pace is also a paragon of architectural brilliance. This shimmering, sleek and streamlined, glass tower designed by Diamond + Schmitt Architects Inc. will artfully rise from a podium comprised of dark charcoal-coloured bricks. Pace will embody urban elegance at its best - and will define a new generation of urban elegance. Landscaping by Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg will frame the building in startling greenery and colour.

Great Gulf knew that the interiors would have to be just as unexpected. Cecconi Simone have combined style, function, value and livability to create the antithesis of boring. Aesthetics and functionality describe Pace’s amenity areas, which will overtake the entire 11th floor, and will satisfy everyone from those with a fitness fetish to couch spuds.

Residents can sweat it out in the weight and cardio rooms or do two hundred or so laps in the outdoor pool, then collapse in the TV lounge or reading room. There’s a party room with a bar, kitchen  and pool table and, when it’s sizzling in the city, stretch out and absorb some rays on the sun deck. The landscaped roof garden takes on the feeling of a resort-in-the-city. Residents will also enjoy 24-hour concierge service from the über-cool lobby.

Suites will envelop owners in clean, minimalist lines bathed with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows. The 9’ ceiling heights add to the spacious feel, and attractive laminate flooring is available in a variety of styles and colours. Minimalism is also the basis for the Cecconi Simone-designed linear kitchens, which create a cooking and cocktail scene for those who cherish entertaining at home. Features and finishes include Corian® countertops, glass mosaic tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances. The bathrooms are simply sexy, with clean, simple lines framing European-style vanities with Corian® countertops, porcelain floor tiles, soaker tub and framed glass shower enclosure, all as per plan.

Pace’s studios, one-bedroom, one-bedroom + den, two-bedroom and two-bedroom + den suites will range in size from 502 to 900 sq. ft. and in price from $209,990 to the mid-$400’s. Occupancy is slated for Spring 2015.

Now celebrating 35 years of homeowner satisfaction, more than 40,000 families call a Great Gulf neighbourhood home.
