Coming soon to downtown Burlington, Gallery Condos + Lofts will feature 159 art-inspired tower suites and soft loft units with urban finishes, higher ceilings barn style doors, concrete accent walls, and track style lighting. The modern design curated by renowned Tomas Pierce Interior Design boasts open concept layouts, as well as large balconies and terraces, that are perfectly positioned for breathtaking views in every direction. Aside from the 10-ft.-high ceilings, the lofts’ master ensuite offers a one-of-kind, four-piece spa bath. This signature feature places the tub in a five-by-five-ft. rain room which will add a unique touch to the spa like experience. The soft loft concept, will make up about 20 per cent of the residential units and is new to the market. The building is designed for living, as most of the tower units average slightly less than 1,000 sq. ft., with large chef style kitchens, stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and large outdoor spaces with gas barbecue connections.

Located on Lake Ontario, the city of Burlington offers residents a safe and friendly environment as well as fabulous restaurants, shopping, festivals, events and a culturally rich arts community. Gallery Condos+ Lofts will place residents in the centre of it all. The 22-storey building will feature a four-storey podium with a unique cutaway corner and wide streetscape for the public to enjoy.

Building amenities will include an elaborate party room with separate dining and billiards spaces on the second floor, as well as a gym and yoga room that opens to the outdoors for indoor or outdoor practice and a spectacular second floor indoor pool. There will also be an extensive rooftop feature including separate dining, lounge and barbecue areas in addition to fire features. All of these spaces will showcase the spectacular views the building offers.

From the top of the 22nd floor, residents and their guests will enjoy the lake, harbour into Hamilton and the Toronto skyline. Nick Carnicelli, president of Carriage Gate Homes, credits the unique positioning of the building, along with its design, for the fact that many of residents will enjoy these views from their suites as well. Carnicelli explains that the wide streetscapes on three sides of the building of Brant, James and John Streets offers the perfect space for plenty of new trees, street furniture and even outdoor patio space. As the city undergoes a revitalization, these streetscapes will go a long way to improve the downtown core while still offering a quaint yet hip feel that residents will revel in. The close proximity to City Hall and Civic Square make it an ideal location for those who work in the city or want to enjoy all it has to offer on their time off.

The builder goes on to explain that the location is full of vitality and he’s excited to tap into that. “This is an art-inspired project,” Carnicelli says of his desire to make a contribution to public art as part of the development. The plan is to engage local artists in the project with the intent of featuring local art in the building’s lobbies and common areas.
