Today, young professionals seek dwellings that appeal to their status, comfort and convenience. This new project, RICHMOND, located on Bathurst Street in the town of Richmond Hill, provides 15 freehold townhomes with condominium elements. The developer collaborated with our team to design intelligently-configured spaces with needs of future families in mind. Progressive in every aspect, each townhouse is owned individually with two parking spaces—one indoor and one on the driveway. As a result, the configuration presents different elevations at the front and back of the units to achieve the three-storey look on both sides. Propelling the movement of contemporary development forward in the suburban setting, the expert design of the project distinguishes RICHMOND from its traditional surrounding, bringing a more urban lifestyle and streetscape to the neighbourhood.
Each of these residential units includes approximately 2,418 square feet of efficiently-planned and abundantly-lit living spaces that are spread out over four levels (back split design). Inside, an open-concept design offers the residents' convenience and visually-striking spaces from the 14’ high ceiling to the custom-made kitchen. In every room aesthetics and function are balanced carefully. The main entry, garage, and multi-purpose room occupy the lowest level; above are the public functions of kitchen, family, living and dining. Two bedrooms, a bathroom and laundry facilities occupy the second floor, culminating in a large private master ensuite with rooftop patio on the top floor.
Across the street from the project, the new Jewish community centre is situated in a contemporary architectural presentation. It introduces today’s architectural style in Vaughan side of Bathurst Street while our proposed complex will not only continue that trend but also offer an interesting balance on the Richmond Hillside. This continuity creates an urban connectivity between the two towns.
Rich, natural materials predominate. A sculptural stair is crafted from glass panels—matched by similarly stained oak floors and handrails. Custom Italian kitchen and bathroom cabinets also feature an oak finish and are complemented by porcelain floor tiles and quartz countertops. This project is designed to EnerGuide 83 energy efficiency guidelines. Using the high-velocity mechanical system, triple-glazed fiberglass windows and double-rated insulation—in both the roof and exterior walls—make this project one and only energy star complex in this part of the city. Efficiency, functionality, and aesthetics are met with high quality urban lifestyle in RCIHMOND.
