Introducing Charing Cross Condos, an exciting new project from Lancaster Homes. This 4-storey condominium is set against the backdrop of a cosy, residential neighbourhood. Golf courses and nature walks frame this idyllic community and will provide residents with gorgeous views in all directions. Suites starting from the high $300’s. Coming soon to North Oshawa.
Discover beautiful greenspaces, fabulous lifestyle amenities and a wonderful quality of life. Charing Cross is the latest addition to Lancaster’s very successful master-planned community in Northern Oshawa, a neighbourhood on the rise. Close to amenities and the growing Durham College, but just far enough away from the urban hustle and bustle of central Oshawa. This project is set to turn heads and attractive for young families, students, as well as investors alike.
Located in the northern edge of Oshawa, Charing Cross will be a quaint community off the beaten path. This area will be excellent for families thanks to it’s many schools, parks, and other natural amenities.
Plenty of elementary schools are nearby, including St. Anne Catholic Elementary, Northern Dancer Public School and Kedron Public School. Also just a short 4 minute drive away, is Durham College and Ontario Tech University, making Charing Cross good for post secondary students as well as young families.
For residents of Charing Cross, access to all essential amenities will be just a short drive away. While there are many retail and shops along Conlin Rd East and around Durham College, the wildly popular SmartCentres Oshawa is just ten minutes drive, offering fitness centres, pharmacies, banks, LCBO, The Home Depot, Sport Chek, not to mention a number of popular restaurants like Kelsey’s, Swiss Chalet, East Side Mario’s, Buffalo Wild Wings and more! Also very close by is a Cineplex Odeon cinema.
And if that wasn’t enough in terms of convenience, further south into the heart of Oshawa, is the Oshawa Centre Mall, providing other amenities, services and restaurants.
Only 15 minutes drive away is the exciting Treetop Eco Adventure Park, an attraction for families looking for obstacle courses, zip lines, climbing walls and suspension bridges. Also nearby, the Civic Recreation Complex includes outdoor fields, tracks, an indoor swimming pool, fitness centre, playground and more.
Further, countless parks and greenspaces surround the area, with Cedar Valley Conservation Area close by, as well as Kedron Dells Golf Club, essentially next door.
Charing Cross will be a charming new 4-storey condominium that makes up part of a larger residential neighbourhood. The building features a modern, rectangular facade with plenty of balconies and large windows. Dark brick and stone will create a natural tone, bringing warmth and comfort to the exterior and interior design.
Residents will enjoy large, comfortable suites, totalling 110 across the building. These units will feature a number of different layouts and floor plans, perfect for buyers of any lifestyle. Currently, these floor plans have not yet been made available, so to receive them as well as a full list of all building amenities as soon as they become available, don’t forget to register with MyCondoPro!
Connected to many of the GTA’s largest, highest traffic highways like the 407, and the 401 (which is just a five minute drive away), residents of Oshawa face short, manageable commutes into the city, and with connections to Northbound highways like Highway 12, the 404, and the 400, trips up north to Barrie, the Kawartha Lakes, and the “cottage country” of the Muskokas is easy.
Just a 30-minute drive to Markham, and a commute into Toronto’s downtown clocking in just under an hour, Oshawa is the perfect place for people looking to live outside the downtown core, yet still remain close enough for work or other commutes.
Also, travelling around the GTA without a car is simple, thanks to the Oshawa Train Station GO Transit service. Take the train into the city, or around the Durham Region. Meanwhile, public transit through Oshawa and throughout Durham Region is extensive and affordable thanks to Durham Region Transit, which runs routes throughout the region, and connects residents to the many GO Transit Commuter Rail stations in Ajax, Pickering, Whitby, and Oshawa.
Lancaster Homes is a trusted home developer based in Ontario. Having built mostly in the Lower Simcoe and Niagara Region, Lancaster is pushing further into the GTA, including projects like Charing Cross Condos in Oshawa.
Whether it’s a starter home or something a little more lavish, Lancaster believes that building a home means building something that lasts. Their homes have a timeless style and are built with leading-edge materials to ensure lasting value.
But more than that, a home has to be part of a community, and Lancaster is known for recognizing great communities, and developing homes that uplift and further enrich those communities. Places like Angus, Bowmanville, Eastbourne, Innisfil, Keswick, and North Oshawa. These places are known for natural beauty – ravines, forests – and Lancaster believes in building homes that celebrate nature.
Though new, Lancaster has developed a strong relationship with the communities it has helped develop, and has established itself as a trustworthy new face in southern Ontario real estate.
Durham Region in general is a hot real estate market, and continues to grow every year. Outpacing even Toronto itself, Durham is an attractive location for families looking to homes along the shores of Lake Ontario, within commuting distance to Toronto, and also offers many rustic, slower-paced towns in the north of the Region. The housing market in Ajax in particular has grown by a staggering 72% since 2012, with the average condo price sitting well below that of Toronto proper.
This growth is largely due to the influx of population, which is undergoing a dramatic downtown rejuvenation. Millions have been invested in building a new urban core to the city and surrounding areas, with emphasis on higher density and master-planned communities with amenities right at the doorsteps to these new condominiums and subdivisions. Investment opportunities are everywhere as Ajax and Oshawa are particularly attractive to young professionals and new families in the 20-30 bracket, and these “Dormitory Communities” begin to grow into destination cities themselves.
Charing Cross is being built in an already well-established neighbourhood. North Oshawa has a wealth of amenities and so interest in this project is likely to be high thanks to its existing infrastructure, amenities, and conveniences. This community is only set to grow, and with its closeness to Durham College, the neighbourhood is expected to continue this growth trend well into the 2020s.
