  • Irresistible condominium in downtown Oshawa has wide appeal

    The tremendous success of Parkwood Residences is a perfect example of the right product in the right place at the right time. In late May, Atria Developments opened the doors on this landmark condominium in downtown Oshawa – and since then, suites priced from just $99,900 to $219,900 have been snapped up by purchasers who range in age from their 20s through to empty-nesters. This is the first residential condominium constructed in Oshawa in over 20 years, so pent-up demand is hot locally, and purchasers from as far away as Niagara-on-the-Lake and St. Catharines have been lured by this outstanding value and the renaissance taking place in this progressive city.

    A new university, cancer care centre and industrial and commercial development are among the advances Oshawa has seen recently. Downtown, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Art in the Park and Jazz & Blues Festival are just some of the exciting entertainment and cultural venues Parkwood Residents will enjoy. Right behind the condominium, the Regent Theatre is undergoing a renewal project that will make it a year-round community performance house. Plus, a new Downtown Sports and Entertainment Facility will accommodate a wide variety of entertainment and cultural events, and will be the home of the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League. Of course, this metamorphosis will bring with it even more retailers and restaurateurs.

    Breaking new ground in urban living, Parkwood Residences spans an entire block along the north side of Bond Street between Prince and Centre Streets. This location is perfect for those who work downtown or who appreciate immediate access to amenities that include the GO bus terminal, shops, parks and restaurants. Parkwood Residences is named after Parkwood Estate, the former home of Oshawa benefactor and founder of General Motors of Canada, R.S. McLaughlin.

    Innovation characterizes Parkwood Residences, which consists of buildings that once served as a commercial centre. Well known for enhancing urban revitalization in a number of areas in the GTA, family-owned Atria Developments is fully refurbishing the Oshawa structures to accommodate elegant residential living. Using only the steel superstructure and concrete from the original buildings, the condominium will include everything new, from the grand foyer to its rooftop terraces.

    Parkwood Residences offers 120 suites (64 suites in the 10-storey tower and 56 suites in the attached 6-storey terraced galleria). As a unique feature, a limited number of private rooftop terraces are available for purchase, each measuring 3.3 by 4.94 metres (approximately 10.8 by 16.2 feet) � perfect for gardening or as a personal barbecue terrace.

    Suite choices span the gamut from studios to one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom and two-bedroom plus den residences. Appointments include 9-foot ceilings (except on the second floor); all new windows and doors; a balcony, terrace or French balcony in each suite; European-inspired open concept kitchens with Shaker-style cabinets and a breakfast bar; five premium brand name appliances; pre-wiring for Internet and cable; and luxurious ensuite bathrooms. Building amenities encompass a party room; fully-equipped exercise room; rooftop terrace with barbecue facilities; and indoor parking.

    Suites at Parkwood Residences range in size from 476 to 1,207 sq. ft. and are grand opening priced from $99,900 to $219,900. Rooftop terraces are $11,000 each.
