JAC Condos are an exciting new condominium project full of personality and oozing with style. At Jarvis and Carlton, JAC is looking to disrupt the typical condominium lifestyle, offering “never-before-imagined” amenities, and setting a new bar for lifestyle condos in the downtown core. If you think you know condos in Toronto, you don’t know JAC. JAC Condo features residential towers with apparent heights of 34 storeys with a total of 458 Units. The Architect is Turner Fleischer Architects.
Jac is a completely new kind of condominium lifestyle with tons of personality. Iconic on the outside, incredible on the inside. A vivid lifestyle, offering never before imagined amenities that will redefine authentic downtown living.
Jac is a location…actually, it’s more of a destination. Jarvis and Carlton to be exact. An expressive, vibrant neighbourhood and community that revels in the eclectic, reveres inclusivity in diversity. Relying on its people to inspire and evolve its scene. Art, fashion and food define the neighbourhood with a nod to nature.
JAC is located in the Garden District, a sector of the downtown core known for it’s bustling city lifestyle. Just on the east side of Yonge, the Garden District envelopes most of the Ryerson University campus, Massey Hall, and countless shops, restaurants and attractions. Spend the afternoon getting inspired at the Art Gallery of Ontario, just a short walk away, or take in a movie at the charming Carlton Cinema.
Walking distance to the world-famous Eaton Centre Shopping Mall, the Garden District is essentially the epicentre of the city – with concerts and all kinds of city events being hosted in the glitzy Yonge & Dundas Square, and overflowing into the rest of the city. Festivals, parades, and cultural events make this neighbourhood a vibrant urban centre.
This section of Yonge Street has a storied history, often associated with the iconic “Sam The Record Man” neon sign that used to hang above the famous record store, and now has a permanent home at Yonge & Dundas Square. Many shops once considered Toronto landmarks have disappeared in the past few decades, but they are not forgotten, and the new projects in the area have focused on holding onto that central Toronto identity by mixing high-rise living with office and retail space on lower levels. As Ryerson University continues to expand, students have moved into the area, bringing with them energy and excitement. Unique attractions like Karaoke bars, and escape rooms, board game cafes and boutique bars have cropped up, creating new traditions and landmarks.
Greenspaces are abound in the area like the spectacular Allan Gardens just across the street from JAC – a historic green space with decades of history in the city, complete with off-leash dog park, multiple charming pathways, and a gorgeous canopy of trees. Other parks like Moss Park are nearby, and with unique neighbourhoods like Church & Wellesley and Cabbagetown just a short walk away, there’s always something fun or interesting going on nearby.
Rising 34 storeys, JAC will be an impressive combination of modern, sky-scraping condo, and grounded, unimposing, stylish architecture. The original facade of the heritage home that has occupied the space will be preserved, and the rest of the building will grow upwards from that foundation, making for a charming example of old-meets-new.
The first ten floors will form a stepped-back podium from the street level which will help the street retain it’s character, and make space for amenities for residents easy-to-access. Though a full amenities list has not yet been provided, JAC developers Phantom Developments promises a new paradigm in amenities. On the ground level, retail space will provide restaurants, shopping, groceries and other services.
The most famous, and busiest road in Toronto, Yonge Street, is one of the longest streets in the world, and begins at the shore of Lake Ontario, and carries all the way north to Barrie. Other major streets in Toronto, Dundas, Bloor, Queen, King, and University form a grid foundation for which the entire city’s transit network rests. Travelling across the GTA is simple even just from these main streets which carry off in every direction towards the eastern and western reaches of the GTA, like Scarborough, Durham Region, Etobicoke, Peel Region and Halton Region to the east and west, as well as York Region in the north.
Public Transit is robust and ever-present in downtown Toronto thanks to the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), with major subway lines, streetcar lines and bus routes all converging within the downtown district, and funnelling through the hub of Union Station, in the southern end of the Entertainment District. From here, travellers, commuters and explorers alike have seemingly unlimited options. The UP Express Train connects Union to Lester B. Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, the GO Transit infrastructure runs commuter rail lines across the entire GTA and beyond, and VIA Rail provides inter-city transit along the Quebec-Windsor Corridor, the most populous region in all of Canada.
JAC is located in a singularly convenient crossroads in Toronto. You can hop onto the subway in five minutes from your front door to just about anywhere in the city, but for most needs and desires, you need look no further than the Garden District. Easy commutes to Ryerson University and George Brown College St. James Campus, makes JAC a perfect place for students to settle in. And easy walks to shopping malls, supermarkets and even St. Michael’s Hospital mean that everything is conveniently located – you’ll probably be able to see it from your window!
JAC’s walk score of 99/100 is essentially a perfect score. The Church-Yonge corridor of Toronto only continues to develop and boom as new projects like JAC bring more energy, more demand, and more supply to the already convenient central urban lifestyle.
Phantom Developments has played an important role in condo development in the GTA over the past decade. With experience in the residential, commercial and industrial real-estate world, Phantom has been involved in community building since the 1990s with it’s projects in the Bathurst Street and Sheppard Avenue West neighbourhood, and more recently in areas like North York, Etobicoke, and now the Garden District in downtown Toronto.
Phantom Developments has compiled an impressive portfolio of projects, and continues to uphold it’s commitment to superior design, innovative, contextual architecture, and refined character.
It’s projected that very soon Toronto will have the most high-rise condos in the world, and young professionals continue to find the downtown core and West End an attractive spot for starting a family and making a home. Toronto’s growth continues it’s upward trend, and so will Toronto’s most vibrant region. Nowhere is this likely to be more true than the Downtown Core, and with neighbourhoods like the Garden District, Cabbagetown and Church & Wellesley going through unprecedented change and construction, now is an excellent time to look into investment in the area.
Condo prices in the Toronto sit healthily in the high $400K range, and continue to grow by about 10% every year. With this robust and ambitious plan, St. Thomas is looking to build a community that will stand the test of time right in the heart of the city. And with so many draws, like Universities, Campuses and Businesses so close by, this will always be an attractive area for students and young professionals looking for an easy commute.
