An exciting new condominium project is coming to Jane Street and Rutherford Road in Vaughan. A massive, ambitious new block of mixed-use towers is looking to transform this important intersection into a thriving new community. Introducing Abeja District.
With plans for occupancy in 2022, Abeja District is looking to be a self-contained community within the city of Vaughan. Located at 2901 Rutherford Rd, this complex of buildings will rise in phases. The first phase will consist of three buildings, Towers A, B, and C, which will rise 27, 26, and 30 storeys respectively and contain a wide variety of suites to fit all sorts of lifestyles and families.
With gorgeous designs, charming communal parks and countless amenities, Abeja District is set to take the Vaughan condominium scene by storm!
Abeja District Condos 2 Highlights:
Cortel Group proposed a total of three residential towers surrounded Verde with an urban mixture of retail, commercial and residential neighbourhood, designed to create a sustainable, social, environmental and economical community.
Verde at Abeja District
A perfect embodiment of everything the community stands for, Verde at Abeja District is a hub for culture, connection and creativity.
A vibrant, lush park-like space, Verde provides nearby greenspace for all residents and visitors to access, complete with gardens, playgrounds, water features, an amphitheater, and a community centre. The design makes a significant commitment to Privately Owned Publicly-Accessible Space via a ground level plaza, linked through a ramp system that weaves through multiple levels of an-structure space. It will offer a place for the community to come together and bond, while also creating visually engaging focal points – similarly to the courtyards that are a part of the way that many of Barcelona’s city blocks take shape.
Located at the corner of Jane Street and Rutherford Road, Abeja District is right in the centre between Maple, Vellore and Sherwood neighbourhoods in the heart of Vaughan.
This area is extremely convenient. Just across the street is the famous Vaughan Mills shopping centre, as well as countless local businesses and services. One attractive aspect of Maple is the sheer amount of lush green parks, and green spaces. West Maple Creek, Maple Airport Park, and Mackenzie Glen District Park among many others provide countless opportunities to get back to nature. With many shops, restaurants and the local hospital, Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital nearby, residents of Maple are surrounded by amenities and services, making the area a highly convenient place to set down roots.
Abeja district is uniquely located for its proximity to GTA attractions. Just 7 minutes drive away is Canada’s Wonderland – the nation’s most famous amusement park. 330 acres of entertainment, rides, and amusements attract millions of park goers every year. In fact, many residents of the area hold season tickets!
Meanwhile just 7 minutes in the other direction will bring residents to the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, the new downtown core of the area. The Metropolitan Centre will have over 440 acres of office towers, condos, parks, shops and hotels, employing 36,000 people, including residents who’s commutes will be only minutes. All of this will be connected by both walkways and cycle paths. A bold new vision for Vaughan, this exciting project will be an epicentre for the entire area, and one endpoint of the TTC subway Yonge-University line.
This area of the GTA is in high demand with condos selling out quickly, and land becoming a real premium. The neighbourhood’s youthful family vibe makes for an exciting, enriching place to grow up. With many excellent schools in the area like Juliard Public School, St. Emily Catholic Elementary School, Maple High, and many more all within a short distance, this is an excellent place for families.
Striking towers with big windows and gorgeous, geometric balconies are the first thing one notices about Abeja District. With beautiful landscaping around and in between the buildings, residents will enjoy both incredible views of the surrounding city, but also a ground-level connection to nature.
The three towers that are a part of phase one will be connected by one podium linking them together in a diamond-shape. In the centre, a lush communal courtyard park will act as a meeting place, and a shaded spot to relax with friends and family.
The podium itself will feature a wealth of amenities including businesses and services, as well as a daycare centre. Other amenities include an artist studio, a theatre, fitness rooms, wellness spa, yoga room, lounge and party room, as well as a work hub and outdoor terraces. Outside, residents will enjoy playgrounds, water features, and even BBQ spaces with outdoor meeting spaces perfect for hosting get-togethers.
The block will feature a total of 824 residential units, about two-thirds of which will be one-bedroom units, while the rest will be two-bedroom, and three-bedroom suites.
Features and finishings in the suites themselves will be luxurious. 9 foot ceilings, stainless steel appliances, stacked laundry machines, modern kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, and your choice of designer quartz or stone kitchen countertops.
Total parking in block 1 will reach 908 spaces, including residential, commercial and visitor parking.
With Vaughan Metropolitan Centre just a seven minute drive away, residents of Abeja District will have unparalleled access to the TTC. This station, having recently been completed as an extension of the TTC Line 1 Yonge-University line, gives buyers immediate subway connection downtown, as well as eventual connection to Line 2 going East-West. Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station is a hub for travel across the GTA, with an easy 40 minute ride to Union Station in the heart of Toronto.
Commuters can also take advantage of the GO Transit Barrie line, which has stops at Rutherford Station and Maple Station. The line runs from Barrie in the north to Union station.
Transportation within the city and to its neighbouring municipalities within the York Region is simple and affordable, with the aptly named York Region Transit (YRT) providing unparalleled bus service and rapid transit with over 20 routes. A simple ten minute drive will bring residents to Finch Station, the northernmost station on one end of the Line 1 Yonge-University Line. From there, it’s a simple 40 minute ride to Union Station in the heart of Toronto.
Residents will also enjoy being close to the VIVA line, with a wide-array of connections all over York Region.
The entirety of southern Ontario is just a short drive away from Vaughan. Highways 400 and 427 serve as major expressways connecting the city of Vaughan to Barrie, Lake Simcoe, and the Muskoka region, as well as into the core of the city of Toronto. Meanwhile the city itself is laden with a grid of county roads, many of which are 4 to 6 lanes, and provide easy travel within the city’s unique communities, and act as an excellent alternative to the occasional congestion of the GTA’s major highways.
The highway 407 connects Vaughan with Pickering to the east, and Burlington to the west. A toll-based highway, the 407 is another popular alternative to the regular highways in the city.
The Cortel Group is a trusted, family-owned developer which specializes in homes and master-planned communities in the GTA.
Founded on the belief that it’s not just the buildings that make a community, but the people who choose to make it a home, Cortel has been focusing on creating and cultivating that sense of community in every project they undertake.
The Cortel Group’s unique logo of a maple key is not just for show – this developer is very aware of the importance of building communities in environmentally-friendly ways. They do this by working to ensure flood reduction, creek rehabilitation, and pond conservation in their projects.
Looking to make a positive impact in the GTA through their developments, The Cortel Group has shown through their projects that they are passionate about creating homes and communities that allow their buyers to set down roots, live in luxury, but also reduce their impact on the environment.
Vaughan has been rapidly growing since the beginning of the 21st century. Having nearly doubled in population since the early nineties, Vaughan is once again preparing for a real estate boom in the near future. New high-rise condominiums are being planned for the centre of the city – with emphasis on urban density and street-level activity. Street retail, boulevards, bike lanes, and green spaces will all lend a comforting, “downtown” feel to these new developments.
As these new communities begin construction, the average selling price of pre-construction condominiums in Vaughan sit in the low $400K range, but continue to rise, with the average price per square foot at around $679. Demand for Condos is skyrocketing for the city as a low vacancy rate encourages more development and the city continues it’s rapid growth.
Now more than ever, people are looking to areas like Vaughan to make their homes. Students will love the convenience or proximity to York University and Seneca, and with Vaughan Metropolitan Centre becoming the “new downtown core” of Vaughan, more and more development is occurring in the area.
And with this dense, ambitious project, the Cortel Group is looking to set a new standard of condominium living within this bustling, exciting part of the GTA.
