A Closer Look: Portrait Condos

We’re always interested in hearing the story that lies behind a new condo project, and Norstar Group’s Portrait Condos is no exception. We sat down with the developers to learn a little more about this new condo and what it offers to potential buyers.

For those who like the idea of luxury living in the city, Portrait may offer exactly what you’re looking for. Quietly nestled at Bathurst and Sheppard amidst parks, trails and lush greenery, this dramatic eight-storey mid-rise is just minutes from a wide array of family amenities including schools, community centres and synagogues. For shoppers, local plazas offer daily amenities such as banking and groceries, while Yorkdale Mall provides the style-conscious with access to over 240 stores and services. Downsview Station is right around the corner for easy access to public transportation, while the highway is a quick drive away.

If you’re downsizing or looking for that perfect pied-a-terre, Portrait’s impressive list of features and finishes will certainly help to ease the transition, making you feel right at home. Some of these include:

     •   Large terraces with exterior gas & water lines;
     •   Granite countertops throughout, including bathrooms;
     •   8’4”, 8’6” and 9’ ceiling heights;
     •   2nd parking spot available for purchase;
     •   Unique, one-of-a-kind layouts (there are about 50 floor plans in the building, no
         floor the same as the next).

 Nature will be brought to life at Portrait with its warm façade, manicured gardens and expansive courtyards – all inspired by the Mediterranean classical style.

True to its name, we think that Portrait Condos is a picture of elegance in an upscale neighbourhood, and at just over $400 per sq ft, its value proposition can’t be denied. Suites start at $271,900 and include a parking spot.  Plus for a limited time only, purchasers can now take advantage of up to $15,000 in free upgrades.
