Canary District in the Words of Dundee Kilmer President Jason Lester
As a follow-up to the launch of Canary District condos, the LiveHigh team recently had the pleasure of chatting with Jason Lester, President of Dundee Kilmer Developments, about this exciting project.
With so much ongoing buzz about this development, we couldn’t wait to pick Mr. Lester’s brain about these fabulous condos!
Check out these videos to find out more about the history of Canary District, its location, and of course, whether the athletes of the highly anticipated Pan Am Games will actually be living in these condo units!
Location, Location, Location!
Canary District is part of the West Don Lands master-planned community. Its proximity to the Don River Park (opening in 2013), the Distillery District, the downtown core and highways makes it a very attractive location for many. “I can’t believe I am in the middle of downtown”, says Mike, a resident in nearby Corktown District.
Canary District and the Athlete’s Village
We’ve been asked this question many times: will the athletes of the Pan Am Games actually be living in these condo units? According to Jason, yes! The athletes will indeed reside in Canary District.
One important note: flooring and kitchens will only be installed after the Games (when the athletes have moved out). Tarion Warranty coverage will begin after a unit owner takes occupancy of the unit post-Games, in 2016.
