Treviso II for Italian Chic
Treviso Condominiums offered a second opportunity to enjoy the soul of Italy in the heart of Toronto in 2016. Lanterra Developments' Treviso II La Piazza, full of chic high style, is inspired by the richly historic Italian city just north of Venice. Located on the northeast corner of Dufferin St. and Lawrence Ave. W. in North York, the Treviso community is home 1,500 families. It is all about convenience. Residents live steps to the Lawrence subway station in a well-established area packed with amenities. Columbus Centre is across the street with its art gallery, pool, gym and sports courts. Just minutes away are downtown Toronto and the Yorkdale Shopping Centre, fresh from a $220-million expansion, adding 145,000 sq. ft. of retail heaven to this fashion mecca. Treviso is only a five-minute wait for a bus in any direction, and Hwy. 401 and Allen Rd. are immediately accessible.
For more than a decade, multi-award-winning Lanterra Developments has been a leader in condominium design and sales in the Greater Toronto Area. The dynamic and innovative industry veterans who head this progressive firm – the chairman, Mark Mandelbaum and the president and CEO, Barry Fenton - consistently create unique condominiums that enhance Toronto's skyline and meet the needs of a wide variety of residents.
Designed by Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, the Treviso complex will ultimately be comprised of four residential towers and a new public park. The buildings surround Piazza Treviso - the community's large central square complete with seating beautifully landscaping by NAK Design Group. Fitting in seamlessly with its European-style surroundings, Treviso Il's contemporary exterior incorporates the sleek and elegant architecture of today punctuated with signature elements of historic Italian design. A visual marvel, Treviso II is a U-shaped building that steps up from eight to 12 and 24 storeys respectively along the arms of the U, and encompasses 526 suites. The extraordinary master-planned 10-acre community also features prime retail located on the ground floor.
The inside is as impressive as the exterior. Munge Leung-designed interior spaces include a grand lobby with 24-hour concierge service, a party room with formal dining room, hosting kitchen and Terrazzo (grand terrace), well-equipped fitness centre with steam and change rooms, a boardroom, and indoor swimming pool. The outdoor amenity area encompasses a hot tub and family lounge with barbecue and alfresco dining areas. Suite features include high-performance laminate flooring, plus porcelain or ceramic tiles. Munge Leung custom-designed kitchens have granite countertops, a ceramic tile backsplash, and stainless steel-front appliances. Many kitchens include a pantry to maximize storage space. In the bathrooms, a cast-stone rectangular sink reflects modern sensibilities. Most suites open onto oversized loggias (balconies) or terraces with self-watering planters.
Suites at Treviso II range in size from 457 to 1,084 sq. ft. Choices include one-bedroom, one-bedroom-plus-study or den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus-study or den, and three-bedroom layouts. There is literally something for everyone, from first-time buyers to urban professionals and empty-nesters.
