Townhouse Trend Takes Toronto

In the land of the blooming condo high-rise a different housing type is starting to sprout - the 'urban townhouse'. Tracy Hanes explains what makes such homes attractive to buyers, and looks at three popular townhouse projects.

"One of the hottest emerging commodities on the Toronto and GTA real estate scene is the urban townhouse," writes Hanes. "The new breed of town is sophisticated and stylish, featuring contemporary architecture and interior design by top designers, with upscale features such as rooftop terraces, 9-foot ceilings, wood floors and granite or quartz countertops. These factors, when coupled with a key location close to transit and amenities, are resounding with purchasers."

“This kind of midrise townhouse is really well suited to Toronto,” says Adam Ochshorn, president of Curated Properties. “There is an entire generation of condo buyers downtown who now need more space. They are committed to the lifestyle and don’t want to move away from the neighbourhood they love. The market for this kind of hybrid building product is there."
