Emblem is a relatively new developer on the scene, having been founded in March 2019. They pride themselves on designing homes and living spaces that they themselves would live in. Currently their two major projects, Artform Condos, and 86 Dundas St. E are both part of the larger Dundas Connects Initiative.
The most important thing to Emblem is putting community first. A big focus for this burgeoning developer is that growth must be done sustainably. Innovation and responsibility are the defining strategies Emblem looks to employ as they work together with Mississauga and the Dundas Corridor to improve the lives of the residents of Cooksville.
Emblem is a new wing of the respected firm First Avenue, which is an investment management company founded in 2009, it’s CEO Kash Pashootan has appeared in the Canadian Business, National Post, and The Globe & Mail, and was named a Top 50 Portfolio Manager by Wealth Professional.
Though new, Emblem Developments is stepping up to the challenge of working to rejuvenate the Dundas Corridor, and is looking forward to the opportunity to break new ground in sustainability, and the quality of life of the residents of Cooksville.
It’s projected that very soon Toronto will have the most high-rise condos in the world, and young professionals continue to find the downtown core and West End an attractive spot for starting a family and making a home. Toronto’s growth continues it’s upward trend, and so will Toronto’s most vibrant region. Nowhere is this likely to be more true than the Downtown Core, and with neighbourhoods like the Garden District, Cabbagetown, Church & Wellesley, and St. James Town going through unprecedented change and construction, now is an excellent time to look into investment in the area.
Condo prices in Toronto sit healthily in the high $400K range, and continue to grow by about 10% every year. And with so many draws, like Universities, Campuses and Businesses so close by, this will always be an attractive area for students and young professionals looking for an easy commute.
St. James Town is a neighbourhood going through great change. Though many tall residential buildings already can be found in the neighbourhood, an influx of condominiums in the area is going to lead to a densification, and a rejuvenation of this quiet, charming area just off the beaten path. With such character and charm, the area is a sought-after place for people of all types to set down roots, and an attractive place for students to rent during their post-secondary careers. This makes investment in homes in the area a wise investment.
