Heritage-Inspired 32-Storey New Build to Bring Dose of ‘Goode’ to Distillery District
September 13, 2021
The Distillery District has long been known as one of Toronto’s most charming pockets.
From its cobblestone underfoot to its heritage buildings, the place is picture-perfect… whether you’re there in high summer, or during the Toronto Christmas Market.
Now, coming soon to the historical area is a new build — one that will both honour the tradition of the neighbourhood, and bring with it a fresh sense of contemporary style (not to mention amenities).
Coming forth via Graywood Developments, and with sales fronted by Baker Real Estate Incorporated, the Distillery District is gearing up to welcome The Goode.
With their name behind many of Toronto’s favourite builds (think: The Ritz Carlton, JAC Condos, Wonder Condos, and others), there’s no doubt Graywood is poised to deliver on downtown’s expectations for residential bliss.
Set to rise 32 storeys over 33 Parliament Street, the structure will stand at the helm of the Distillery District proper. Boasting crisp architecture that’s all at once heritage-inspired and modern, to-be residents can expect a futuristic lifestyle glimmering with complementary nods to the past.
In one direction, The Goode will offer views of downtown and the lake. In the other, the beauty of the Distillery — with its bakeries, chocolate shops, small-owned business, and general olde-world charm, waits to be explored.
Described as one of the last parcels of land to be developed in the neighbourhood, The Goode will present a rare chance to snatch up a section of the historical area to call your own.
And, while living in this district will undoubtedly have you stomping the local ground more often than not, we’d be remiss not to mention how easily accessible the rest of the city is from here, too. A short streetcar ride (or leisurely stroll) will have you at the subway line in minutes, from where you can find yourself in the north or west ends in no time.
Trinity Bellwoods lunch dates or High Park hikes will be easy to get to, while David Crombie Park and Corktown Common are just around the corner from home.
Back at the build, meanwhile, residents will be set to savour their preferred selection of amenities. Outside, two terraces — one on the second floor, the other on the tenth — present places to soak up the sun with stunning views. A swimming pool, BBQ area, sun deck, garden terrace, and dining area also wait under the soaring skies for residents’ enjoyment.
Indoors, amenities include a gaming area, games room, reading nook, coffee bar, separate party and screening rooms, a yoga studio, and more. A pet spa will serve as a serene getaway for Max and Bailey, while the bike repair station offers a space for you to flex your DIY fix-it muscles.
All-in-all, the project’s amenity areas will cover more than 20,000 sq. ft. of space. Meanwhile, 540 suites, ranging in size from studio to 3-bed plus-dens (including everything in between), will be situated across the structure’s 32 storeys.
When envisioning a life at the helm of the Distillery District, it’s important to imagine not just what the area offers now, but what it’s poised to offer down the line, too. With a $1.25B investment at the Port Lands Redevelopment, a $10B master-planned, mixed-use development (poised to offer 50,000 jobs) lined up for East Harbour, and Quayside — the new vision for one of the city’s last expanses of undeveloped land — it’s clear that the city’s south-east side isn’t slowing down.
If anything, we’d say this area is moving full-speed ahead, and this condo is your ideal opportunity to hop aboard the ride.
