Subtrade tenders pending for Rockport’s Wicksteed Business Park in Toronto
The Rockport Group is poised to start construction next spring on an industrial/ commercial condo development which encompasses 9.5 acres and seven buildings in Toronto’s Leaside neighbourhood.
Construction costs have not been finalized.
The company said the Wicksteed Business Park will house 78 units, ranging in size from 1,000 to 30,000 square feet, providing space for a wide variety of businesses “in an attractive location” within minutes of downtown Toronto, the Don Valley Parkway and Highway 401 and easily accessible by public transit.
Features include high ceilings, ample parking, large windows and second-floor skylights. Private washrooms are roughed in, gas-fired HVAC is installed on the roof, and wiring is in place for the latest communications technologies via fibre-optic and co-ax services.
Upgrade options provide a wide array of customization possibilities, including sound resistance, elevators, security packages, showers, and kitchens.
A spokesperson for the developer said the project’s design is consistent with the heritage features of the neighbourhood. Architects are Turner Fleischer Architects Inc.
Construction is expected to be phased. Subtrade tenders are to be issued this winter.
“Owners benefit from low-cost condominium management including the maintenance of common areas and garbage removal, freeing their time to take care of what matters — their businesses,” The Rockport Group said.
The Rockport Group is a fully integrated real estate services provider, handling all aspects of land acquisition, development, project and construction management as well as property management for residential, commercial, industrial and retirement home properties.
