Making Room for Health and Wellness, on a Grand Scale
The team at Armour Heights Developments is taking the health and safety of buyers to new levels with greater attention to outdoor spaces at its properties, such as 89 Avenue Yorkville.
“Many of our clients are focused on the outdoor space just as much as their interior suite,” says president Frank Mazzotta.
“We are working with our landscape architect to incorporate items on the terraces such as water features and lush gardens. The spacious terraces offer inset balconies to accommodate dining for eight to 10 people. Firepits and outdoor bars have also been designed, and there is an option for an infinity edge pool off the upper penthouse.”
Armour Heights Developments is answering the call for wellness spaces in its luxury projects, including lush gardens outside and opulent spa bathrooms.
Green space abounds at 89 Avenue with a discrete and private entrance at the back of the building from Hazelton Lane meticulously manicured with greenery and a quiet seating area for residents to enjoy.
Cailey Heaps, president and chief executive officer of real estate firm Heaps Estrin in Toronto, says today’s buyers of luxury properties are not only looking for larger outdoor spaces, but they are also interested in homes with clean air and clean water. “Air quality has become much more topical among our buyers since the start of the pandemic,” Heaps says.
With indoor air and water quality fast becoming an imperative for buyers, Armour Heights has taken great care to incorporate systems and technologies that support clean air, clean water and a safe environment for buyers of residences at 89 Avenue. Mazzotta says the building’s HVAC system uses a variable refrigerant flow system that includes a built-in humidifier and air quality control filtration.
“Every suite will include a water purification system and a steam generator that converts the shower into a steam spa. The shower enclosures include a digital thermostat to control the water temperature,” Mazzotta says.
As a desire for better health and state of mind filters into buying decisions, luxury living in the Greater Toronto Area is emerging as the lifestyle of choice. This bodes well for luxury real estate developers who are making health and wellness an integral part of their business model.
