How the homegrown hotelier’s luxurious new flagship came to fruition
Development partners responsible for industry’s fastest selling projects – twice!
Even after a weekend of being up [at my parents’ cottage] and fully appreciating what nature has to offer, there’s always that feeling of when I get back to the city I’mhappy to be home. It’s never, ‘Oh no, here’s the rat race again.’ It’s always a relief.
“We believe everything we do has a strong impact on the neighbourhood where we build, and it’s our responsibility as developers to work with the community to design something that will positively affect the neighbourhood and positively affect change in the neighbourhood,” says Brian Brown, vice-president with Lifetime Developments.
With the developers donating $5 for every Karma Condos registration, the initiative raised over $15,000 for three local charities: Wellspring, a network of community-based cancer support centres; Sketch, an organization that provides opportunities for homeless or at-risk youth to engage in the arts; and Ronald McDonald House Toronto.
When Lifetime Developments and CentreCourt Developments dubbed their new condominium development at Yonge and College “Karma Condos”, it wasn’t just another name – it was a mission statement, and one that carries a great deal of significance.
“Amenities have become much more elaborate, much more varied, with a lot of options in terms of spaces in the building you can go to if you feel the need to get out of your unit but don’t feel like you actually have to put a coat on and go outside,” Ms. Cecconi says.
Condo developers tend to boast that their projects will give something back to the communities in which they’re being built. With Karma Condos, though, this is truly the case.
