Grenadier Gardens, Condominiums, West-Toronto, Swansea - High Park 45 Southport Street & 65 Southport Street
The Grenadier Garden’s, Condominiums, in west-end Toronto's Swansea-High Park, is a perfect example of an older condo building going through a transformation that will push it above many of the newer buildings, as far as energy efficiency and lowering future utility costs. In comparison to many of the floor to ceiling glass-walled condos that are being built today, these older buildings have much to offer, in addition to having a lot more living space. The Grenadier Gardens was built in 1972 as a 2 building complex of 16 & 18 storey towers with 334 suites. The spacious suites offer two and three bedrooms, and are perfect for families looking to live in the neighbourhood without a huge price tag, that's attached to houses in the same area. Having already re-done the concrete and balcony repairs from 2004 to 2010, it was then decided to complete a comprehensive renewal, which would include over-cladding or re-skinning as it’s known as well as window replacement. Using the latest technology with an External Insulation and Finish System, including replacing with double-pane windows and doors, these towers are looking at reducing their combined natural gas bills by 40 to 50 per cent when completed. Another bonus for the residents of these older and rugged buildings was not being asked to move out during the recladding process. The Grenadier Garden’s location is prime west Toronto, with only a short walk to transportation, Bloor West Village shopping, fruit markets and eateries, High Park and Lake Ontario with its Martin Goodman trails.
Amenities in both buildings include: pool, sauna, whirlpool, party room, gym, hobby, billiard and outdoor tennis court.
