DNA Condos – 1 Shaw St

Registration date: 2006-06-11

 

An award-winning residential community in Kings West on the frontier of Liberty Village. As the first part of a renowned trifecta brought to conclusion in 2014 with DNA3, DNA launched a major urban boom in luxurious local housing. Now the hippest hood in Toronto, Kings West is bustling with street life and culture. Canderel Stoneridge has achieved a perfect integration of contemporary urban living and the old-world amenities of a long-standing area such as trendy boutiques and art galleries. New ventures are appearing every year.

The sprawling loft-inspired architecture caused an uproar in 2006 upon completion at 1 Shaw St at Douro adjacent to Massey Harris park and north of Liberty Village. Admiration for the compelling rectilinear glass and red brick façade with stonework accents is merited as is the streamlined modernity inside. Public and private spaces are well appointed and sleek. But the lifestyle is by no means sparse. Residents enjoy a real neighbourhood feel given the dominance of this major condo development. With density comes many advantages for young professionals, families, and the newly retired. Large projects easily accommodate all tastes and needs.

Modern top to bottom inside and out, DNA condos is the epitome of the highlife with 317 units scattered over adjacent fifteen and nine storey structures. It offers multiple open plan layouts with bachelors to three bedrooms from 372 to 1,421 square feet, each and every inch drenched in refinement and style such as granite countertops and spa-like bathrooms. Everyone gets a private balcony. A special feature are the terraced penthouse loft units with concrete ceilings, hardwood flooring and amazing city views. You can expect fine finishes, state-of-the-art fixtures and stainless steel appliances, and an ingenious use of available space.

With Starbucks on the ground floor, you are well on your way to the perfect day at DNA condos. You have much to choose. If there is a chill in the air, stay inside and enjoy the fitness centre exercise equipment and yoga space, the party room with catering kitchen, rooftop patio with barbecues, or any available meeting room or lounge. Relax in front of your floor-to-ceiling picture window or venture outside for a vigorous stroll. Something is always afoot in this populated neighbourhood drawing the locals to the streets for adventure.

DNA Condos Neighbourhood

There is no better location for condo living than right in the centre of a chic downtown neighbourhood, surrounded by every possible amenity. A wealth of retail and commercial services reside happily amidst restaurants, cafes, bars, parks and a rich nightlife. Shoppers can do their marketing at Nutrition House or find a new outfit in minutes at a nearby boutique. Ease of living means a drugstore and convenience store just steps outside. No car is needed when you live downtown. You can get to the waterfront with ease and enjoy a drink with a view of the harbour. If you do own an automobile, the Gardiner Expressway will become your favourite route.

Close area options include King’s Rustic Kitchen & Bar, Morgana and William’s Landing. Edulis and Entice Lounge are minutes away for upscale dining along with the more casual Oyster Boy, Montgomery’s, Union, and The Good Son. Opportunities to entertain outside your home abound. For your four-legged friends, Stanley Off Leash Dog Park is minutes away. Hikers and bikers love to explore the larger Trinity Bellwoods Park to the north for a game of tennis or baseball. There is an ice rink during the winter months.

Culture buffs will enjoy some regional venues in the vicinity like Theatre Centre, Centre for Indigenous Theatre, and Lower Ossington Theatre. The landmark theatres of the Fashion and Entertainment Districts are a short trek to the east. Nothing is distant given the availability of mass transit. If you want to visit the Rogers Centre or CN Tower, you have made an excellent choice.

If your goal is to reach the financial centre in minutes, it is entirely possible with convenient TTC access outside the front door. No wonder the location rates a 100 transit rider score.

DNA North Tower Neighborhood

DNA North Tower resides on the corner of Shaw and King Street as part of the multiple-structure DNA complex. It has become known for its hip vibe and strategic location between West Queen West and King West Village. Don’t be surprised if the kids wander off to Trinity Bellwoods Park  Stanley Park or the fashionistas in the family hang out in the trendy shops of Liberty Village. 

All in all, it is an exciting era for emerging entrepreneurs in media, film, web services and design. This is the context in which you chose to live. Athletes will gravitate to the many sports fields and rock-climbing centres. You will have to make time for the many restaurants, bars, galleries and boutiques. Not to miss hot spots include Williams Landing for steak and drinks on the patio, Injapan, and Mildred’s Temple Kitchen for brunch. When it is time to do your grocery shopping, consider Kings Market, Nutrition House and Metro 24-hours. 

When visitors arrive, it is a no-brainer to take them to the Rogers Centre, CN Tower or Metro Toronto Convention Centre for special events. It is a nice walk or a quick trip on the TTC (right next door if you can tear yourself away from the ground floor Starbucks). Plus, there is always Ripley’s Aquarium and all the joys of the Queen Street with all the music and shows. 

Everyone will ask to see the waterfront. They will soon understand why the area gets a 90+ walking score. It’s transit score is even higher given the availability of the King streetcar that connects with north-south lines of Bathurst and Spadina, the Yonge-University subway and Union Station. The Gardiner Expressway and 401 beckon drivers to explore the region.

DNA3 – 1030 King St W

Registration date: 2015-01-29

A new participant in the condo boom in King West. Canderel Residential’s goal was DNA, or “downtown’s next development.” The result is DNA3, the third and final phase of a multi-building community. It is a stunning interconnected complex punctuated by geometric shapes. When lit at night, they are astounding. Kudos go to Graziani and Corazza Architects for an ingenious exterior design. Despite the considerable competition, the entire project more than stands out for its innovative style.

Near the Rogers Centre and CN Tower, DNA3 is poised to enhance the area with its striking good looks. It is all about location for urban dwellers, and the riches of Toronto are right out your door. Busy young professionals have time to engage with the hustle and bustle of city life because it is close at hand. Revitalization of existing neighbourhoods has been vital to the growth of the Greater Metropolitan Area and a major reason for so much relocation. One more choice is on the table for those who covet this popular region.

DNA3 Amenities

The project façade at DNA3 is sleek and modern, setting the tone for the luxury suites inside and public amenity spaces. As a mixed-use project, the tower features a 20,000 square foot retail podium topped by a stacked group of residential storeys. You can shop for dinner or bank on the ground floor. Of great appeal is the river rock sculpture garden, outdoor sundeck, misting station, and barbecue area, not to mention the many private lounges, business centre, game rooms and dining facilities. Nothing is ordinary or out of place. A modern fitness centre is always a must and this condo community enjoys one of the finest in the city complete with training, steam and yoga rooms of high caliber. Residents will be privy to the “rain room,” the first of its kind. The lobby alone is worth a visit with its rich use of glass, stone, wood and leather. Comfortable seating and expansive skylights create an inviting public space for residents and guests. 

Residents appreciate the rich textures and materials at every turn, the handiwork of noted Cecconi Simone interior designers. Residential suites on 14 floors in more than 600 units are well-appointed with top-grade finishes and fixtures. They afford stellar views in all directions. Whether you chose a smaller unit of 269 square feet, a multi-bedroom suite with a den, or a grand penthouse, you are living amidst the splendour of sleek metal and transparent glass. Clean lines and geometric purity are the hallmarks of the 21st century style. It almost pushes the envelope of minimalism. As such it is refreshing, simple, and appealing. Kitchens and bathrooms don’t disappoint as they are based on a strict adherence to the dictates of the most refined contemporary taste. In keeping with modern requirements, open concept living is achieved, enhanced by the airy brightness of morning light piercing floor-to-ceiling windows. 

 

DNA3 Neighborhood

With its hip name, you would expect DNA3 to be in a trendy hood amid the best shopping, dining, night life, and entertainment venues around. This is what city life is all about. If you want art, culture and leisure recreation, you are in the right spot. There are urban amenities of every category within easy reach.

You will want to stop and shop on your way to the metro station across the street. When ready for your staples, Loblaws Urban Market Grocery is your definite choice. 

If you pine for green, you are practically adjacent to Massey Harris and Joseph Workman Parks. While strolling with your dog for a day of leisure and fun, you might be pulled away to the larger grounds of Trinity Bellwoods Park. As you are at 1030 King Street West, Liberty Village is due south with the Fashion and Entertainment Districts just east.
